Description: Each January roughly 50,000 people gather in Park City, Utah for the Sundance Film Festival, the 10-day independent film showcase that has served as a launching pad for up-and-coming filmmakers ever since it started back in 1981. The values haven't changed much in the past three decades, launching the careers of many award-winning filmmakers.
With 200 films premiering from January 17 to 27, it's difficult to keep up, but with a little help from the Sundance Film Festival 2013 app, attendees and film fans can remain informed. Users can search screening schedules, watch trailers, and share information on social media. This easy to use, visually pleasing, and informative app is a must-download for festival attendees trying to organize their screening schedule and even those who didn't make it out to Park City this year but want to keep up on the latest indie premieres.
Pros: It's everything you'd expect from an app that's spent 50-odd weeks of the year in development. The different categories allow users to stumble upon a film or genre they might not have found otherwise, and overall, its organization is logical and clean.
Cons: Annoying advertisements.
