    Redbox | Windows Phone Apps+Games Store (United States)

    The official Redbox app takes your rental experience to a whole new level. Find a box near wherever you’re at, then look inside to see what’s for rent. Find a movie or game you want? Click “Reserve” and check out, and we’ll save you a copy to pick up later that day. Search by release date, genre and rating, and watch trailers. See a list of the closest Redbox locations, and get driving directions to any box in the country.

    Thanks 'androidtoWM' !

    Does seem a bit laggy at startup. Mapped box locations are slightly off (needs a flag/pin icon to accurately locate visually) as well as multiple boxes at locations. And it needs movie reviews (User reviews, Rotten Tomatoes ... something). Offical trailers at auto-full screen are very nice to have. Directions and HERE Drive integration is also very nice for navigation to unfamiliar box locations.

    But it would be nice to be able to save filtering(or not) between app uses....especially filter DVD only or Blu-Ray only, and I imagine families would appreciate that feature on ratings filter also. But currently the choices aren't 'sticky' between app uses. Just a thought.

    The biggest saving grace is that this app's Account Login/Checkout UI is much easier on the phone than trying to do the same via a webpage UI. However the Account Login also currently doesn't 'stick' in that you're logged out when the app is closed(security). An App PIN would be the ideal solution for quick access and security. And if that's too much to ask then at least activate the keyboard orientation in the app for the (now) repetitious info entry, a fault all-too-prevalent in many WP8 apps.

    A good effort tho. Optimize, optimize, optimize.
