Posted on 10:21 AM by SlipKoRnSaad

Butaca is an application which allows accessing a lot of movie-related information. Using  The Movie Database as a backend, Butaca lets you search for a movie and get the title, rating, release date, overview, cast... and a lot of interesting data. It can be used as well to access information about the people in the movie industry: from actors to writers, you'll get all their interesting details.

Besides, you can explore all the movie genres to find new movies and save them as favorites to check them in any moment, you can find what's going on on the theaters around you, and also search the showtimes for a given movie.

So it lets you:

- Browse movie genres
- Search for movies and people
- Shows title, rating, release date, overview and cast for movies
- Shows name, birthplace, date of birth, biography and filmography for people
- Allows keeping content as favorite (both movies and people)
- Allows sharing content using the system share interface
- Search movie showtimes (launching the web browser agains Google Movies)
- Check what's on cinemas near you (also using the web browser)

 Future improvements will add support for checking whether a movie has extras after or during the credits and also sharing the info on the Internet (using the email, Twitter or Facebook to communicate your intention to watch some movie, or how interesting you found another one you already watched)
