iOS 6.1 Siri Will Let You Buy Movie Tickets – Siri, although still in beta, is being improved over every version of iOS and Apple keeps adding new features and functionalities to your intelligent little Artificial Intelligence assistant.

Until now, Siri was only able to access movie reviews, display Showtimes and also play trailers but now it is much more intelligent. 9to5Mac reports that this new Siri feature, which is currently being beta tested by developers, lets you easily buy tickets by just asking Siri to do it for you. This feature is powered by the Fandango app available in the App Store. If Fandango isn’t installed on your iPhone/iPad yet, then Siri will ask you to do it before letting you buy movie tickets.

Have a look at their official statement below,

“When a user asks for movie tickets for a certain movie, the applicable Showtimes and theater information will be shown. Then, a user can click the buy movie tickets button and they will be routed to finish their purchase via the Fandango app from the App Store. If the user does not have Fandango installed, Siri provides a button to download the Fandango app.”

There is one catch though as Apple has made this Siri functionality exclusive to US as of now. Over that, this feature is currently in the early stages so it only supports a few theatres so you might have some trouble getting tickets to a theatre near you.

  1. I just want to say I am just all new to blogging and honestly loved you’re web blog. Most likely I’m want to bookmark your blog post . You actually have terrific stories. With thanks for sharing with us your web page.

  2. Online loan says:

    The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.

  3. This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.
