I cannot decide if I am more excited for this movie or Man of Steel. A real toss-up for this year. I definitely think Into Darkness will be better. But, I hope MoS surprises me!

This app is a battery killer on the iPhone. It keeps GPS location services on constantly, even when you x out of the app to close it.

The best things about the app are access to an early Star Trek: Into the Darkness screening through Fandango and a contest to win tickets to the US premiere.
