Oh, MoviePass! How Quickly You Turned to Crap

Oh, MoviePass! You were such a dream service for movie professors… until you implemented a policy requiring photographs of ticket stubs and then introduced bugs into your app so that it would not accept said photographs.

So, now your Android app has 5,495 one-star reviews–fully 47% of all submitted reviews.

You even provoked me to write a review and that’s only about the third time I’ve done so.

Here’s the transcript of what I wrote:

App crashed when I tried to take a photo of a ticket stub–a new, hinky method to limit abuse of subscriptions. Now I’m prompted to submit a photo (which the app won’t accept) and effectively blocked from accessing my PAID subscription because the app won’t go beyond the photo screen. Extremely poor implementation of a dumb policy.
