The Redbox movie and video game that seem to be at every McDonald’s, Walgreens, Walmart, and other locations across the country are easily one of the most convenient ways to get your entertainment fix.
But the Redbox app for android fail to give satisfaction to their customers. Now, it comes with the new update, it fixes a number of issues while adding some useful features and is now available in Google Play Store.
In the previous versions of this app it do not include even basic sorting options but the new update brings the ability to sort by date or alphabetical order.
The New filtering additions such as the ability to sort Blu-Ray discs by genre should make rentals far easier for users than the previous versions of the app.
And also, you can opt into notifications so that the information is sent directly to your handset. Users can also now input coupon codes directly into the app when making reservations.
Unfortunately, users who were hoping to see instant streaming added to the app in this update will be disappointed.
While Redbox announced earlier this year that it would be teaming up with Verizon to bring instant streaming to customers, no options related to streaming were added in this update.
Eventhough this update do not come with streaming features, the previously frustrated users of Redbox’s mobile experience could find it much more useful. Hopefully, the next update will bring streaming, and won’t be too long in coming.
