Are you the kind of person who jumps up at the end of a movie, skipping the credits to get to the parking lot (or restroom – thanks, giant soda tub) before everyone else? If so, you’ve probably missed some pretty neat after credit experiences, called stingers. These are extra little bits of movie, teasers, or even bloopers, that are shown after the credits roll to reward the die-hard movie goers for their patience. The recent run of Marvel movies, for example, all teased the eventual Avengers movie at the end of Captain America, The Hulk, and Iron Man. If you left early, you’d have missed it.
Luckily, now, there’s an app to make sure you never do, and, conversely, you don’t sit around for an entire credit roll for no reason.
Called Anything After, the app lists current release movies and whether they have a post-credit stinger that’s worth waiting for. The app uses crowd-sourced information to gather intel from movies out in theaters. When you log into the app with Facebook, you can add to the body of knowledge of these stingers with a simple “Yeah,” or “Nope,” and help others using the app know when to stay put and when to jet to the lobby.
Give this free, universal app a try, and let us know what you think in the comments below. Together, we’re better!

✔ Quickly find out if there’s a post-credits scene (stinger) after the movie – without having to wait – right on your phone!
