iOS 6.1 Siri buys movie tickets

by Gareth Mankoo

The Siri platform just got more exciting than it ever was. With the new iOS 6.1 version arriving, movie buffs can soon look forward to movie-bookings made a lot simpler. reports that the all new speak recognition software will go on to book movie tickets for you, based on a simple request, at the theater nearest to you. Based on your voice commands, which should include the name of the theater, the application will pull out the show information for you. Next, you will be redirected to the Fadango application download page which will do the needful.

Given Apple’s existing tie-up with Rotten Tomatoes, there’s a great chance of a Flixster app connect coming to Siri. That would cover up for most of the missing theaters in Fadango’s catalog.
