Fanhattan, The Ultimate Guide for Watching TV or Movies on The iPad, is Now on The iPhone

Fanhattan is absolutely the required guide for TV/Movie junkies who frequently view titles on the iPhone. Just like on the iPad version, the app acts as a gateway to entertainment — it gathers a heap of information about shows or movies that can be watched on the iPhone, then serves up that information in a super-cool, easy-to-navigate interface (that looks absolutely stunning on the iPhone 4).

For instance, a little while ago I suddenly had a hankering to watch the Blink episode of Doctor Who; a quick search on Fanhattan showed me that it’s available through Netflix or iTunes. Since I’m a Netflix junkie and have the app installed on my iPhone, I tapped on the “Watch Now” window; I’m anticipating the TARDIS being commandeered by the Angels any moment now. Quick and easy.

The service taps into practically every streaming service available to the iPhone: iTunes, Hulu Plus, Netflix, Crackle, ABC, HBO Go, Amazon Prime and a bunch more. There’s also a ton of depth built into the app, like a wealth of social media options and reviews and news about what’s coming up for our favorite series. Best of all, it’s free.

    I can never leave this page. I can’t blink. If I blink, I’ll be dead. 

    DUCK, SALLY SPARROW!
