Fandango Launches New Amazon Fire Phone App

Los Angeles-based movie ticketing site and service Fandango said late Tuesday that it has launched a new app, this time on Amazon's new Fire Phone. The app--like the company's other mobile apps--offers up movie discovery and movie ticketing. Fandango said the app has been customized for Amazon's Fire Phone, taking advantage of a number of custom features that has been pushing with the device. Fandango reports that more than 50 percent of its movie tickets are now being sold on mobile devices, and says that it saw a 31 percent surge in tickets sold via mobile compared with 2013 so far this year.
