Can’t Wait! gets movie trailers to you faster than the theater can

If you’re a movie buff, you know that a lot of production and marketing money is spent in putting together movie trailers. There are also a lot of people who are movie trailer fans, and will watch as many as they can get their eyes on.

iOS app Can’t Wait! doesn’t want you to have to go to theaters to see the latest and hottest movie trailer, and it wants to deliver it right to your mobile device.

Once you set your account up, you’ll see a familiar Instagram style design for profile. You can amass followers, and follow others, and keep track of your actions. It’s pretty and it’s functional.

The app has three separate sections:

Discover

This is where you want to get started with Can’t Wait! It’s a list of movie trailers sorted by just added, popular, or release date. The design is slick, and all you have to do is tap on the movie trailer that you’d like to see. The video experience is great on Can’t Wait! and is probably its crowning accomplishment. Finding and viewing movie trailers on a mobile device can be a pain, especially when you can’t view flash on an iOS device.

The Feed

The feed on Can’t Wait! shows you all of the latest actions of the friends that you decide to follow on the service. This could be the movies they can’t wait to see, or the one’s they pass on. Those are the two options you’re given when checking out a movie trailer.

Inbox

Once you get a bunch of friends onto Can’t Wait! you can share movie trailers that you think they’d like with them. Also, you can post the trailers to Facebook and Twitter.

Movie studios are looking for new ways to get attention to trailers with big budgets and small, and Can’t Wait! could be a perfect fit for that. Right now the company is giving away Fandango coupons for actions taken within the app, so that’s a start in the right direction.

If you’re into movies, and you have an iOS device, this might be the app for you to check out. It’s free, and that’s way cheaper than going to the theater just to see the trailers.
