digstant released for iOS to help find instant streaming movies

Alexandria, Virginia - be | daronco has announced digstant for all iOS devices: iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. digstant is an instant streaming movie search to help you find the best place to watch a movie. With new instant steaming providers seemingly being added daily, it's hard to check all sources for a movie before you rent or purchase it. It gets even worse when you pay for a rental only to find out later that it was available from a service that you subscribe to.

digstant makes searching for streaming movies simple. When you enter a search in digstant, digstant will search providers such as Netflix Instant Watch, iTunes, Amazon Instant Videos, YouTube Movies, and premium cable channels on demand. The search results will help you determine the best place for you to watch your movie.

You can use digstant to find newly released videos too. New releases will be loaded automatically when you first launch digstant. These are provided by Rotten Tomatoes so you will also be able to see the Rotten Tomatoes rating for each new release. You can then simply tap on a new release to search the instant streaming providers to see where the movie is available.

More content providers will be added to digstant as they become available. Below are several of the features found in digstant:

* Search multiple instant streaming movie providers
* New video releases displayed on launch
* Rotten Tomatoes ratings of all new releases
* Filter search results by swiping left and right
* Movie details provided directly within app
* Preview available for iTunes results
* Shake to clear search results

"The idea for digstant came about due to me renting all of my movies online," said Blaine DaRonco, founder of be | daronco, LLC. "One day I rented 'Get Him To the Greek'. The next day I was flipping though tv channels and saw that it was playing on a pay channel that I subscribed to. So I could have saved myself four bucks if I had an easy way to search all of the instant streaming options I have. So digstant was born! At $.99 digstant pays for itself the first time you find a movie available on a subscription service."

Device Requirements:
* iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad
* Requires iOS 4.2 or later
* 5 MB of free space

Pricing and Availability:
digstant 1.0 is only $0.99 (USD) and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Entertainment category.
