With Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen opening tonight at midnight and Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince opening July 15, Fandango’s popular application with mobile moviegoers is sure to continue its amazing growth.

The Fandango iPhone app rocketed to #1 among free entertainment applications in Apple’s App Store. The app has consistently been in the Top 25 in that category since its launch, and has ranked as high as #8 among all free iPhone and iPod touch applications overall.

Due to popular demand, a new and improved version is now available for the iPhone and iPod touch, offering Fandango users greater convenience via the ability to access their online accounts from the app.
