Mango Apps: Fandango Gets UpdatedOctober 29, 2011 No Comments
After a year of no updates, Fandango has updated to Windows Phone 7.5 Mango.
The update is packed with a crazy amount of new features but what is there just changes the whole use of the app. Fast app switching and in-app pinning is pretty much what you are getting from this updateÂ otherÂ than a few UI tweaks. The new features it does have though, do change how you use and enjoy this app tremendously.
I just pinned my theatre to start, it doesnt get any easier than that!
