Tired of having to look at different apps for the latest news in music, movies and entertainment? Wish you had a one-stop destination where you could listen to your favourite bands and also check out what’s on at the cinema?
Then, Entrance by AOL, designed exclusively for Nokia Lumia smartphones, is the app you have been waiting for.
This app is a unified gateway that offers the latest news in music, movies and entertainment from AOL’s top brands, such as AOL Music, Moviefone and The Huffington Post Entertainment.
Reading about the news is only one part of Entrance by AOL’s rich entertainment experience.
You can also listen to over 55,000 SHOUTcast radio stations and there is free music streaming via AOL Music, such as its exclusive CD Listening Party (CDLP), which showcases a full album by an up and coming band.
Augmented Reality at the Cinema
This unique app has plenty of special features for movie fans to enjoy as well.
Using a first-of-its-kind Augmented Reality function, users will be able to find cinemas, film posters and the screening times by just holding up their phone. This information will display itself on your Lumia’s screen overlaid as if by magic with the real world around you.
There is also integration with Moviefone so that you’ll be able to watch trailers, see nearby showtimes and even buy your cinema tickets directly from within the app.
“Augmented reality, live streaming music and movie trailers are the perfect use case to show off the capabilities of both the Lumia smartphones and AOL’s Mobile development team,” said David Temkin, Senior Vice President of Mobile and Mail at AOL.
“Entrance shows what’s possible when you combine great content with an elegantly designed, incredibly fast handset.”
Music and Movies together
Entrance by AOL has been designed to make the music and movie experiences as seamless and easy to use as possible.
For example, if you like a movie, then you can see the entire cast with a single tap and then, if you wish, continue to find out all the news related to a single actor. Similarly, if the film has a soundtrack, you’ll be able to listen to it and even download the tracks.
“Entrance by AOL leverages the depth of AOL’s content, whilst demonstrating the unique and differentiated experiences partners can bring to Nokia Lumia smartphones,” said Mark Fletcher, Nokia’s Director for Global Partnering & Application Development.
“With innovative features such as Augmented Reality, personalized and contextual Live Tiles and beautiful app design, enabled through the rich Windows Phone UI, we believe Nokia consumers will love this exclusive one stop shop for entertainment.”
