Find the Closest Movie to Where You’re Standing

Movies on the Move is a free service for GPS-enabled Palm OS and Windows Mobile handhelds that lists theaters and showtimes by how close they are to the person scouting for a movie.

Users also have the option of downloading Earthcomber, which carries reviews, descriptions and images of the movies playing. It is also free. Earthcomber’s show listings cover nearly 5,400 theaters and 30,000 screens.

It also lists much more than movies. It includes maps of every region in the United States, and offers the locations of anything from an ATM to a waterfall, cup of coffee, museum, bistro, school, golf course, bar, or even local events.

Movies on the Move and Earthcomber are available at

Astraware Launches Block-Stacking Game with a Twist

Astraware is now offering Big Box of Blox, a new block-stacking game with a twist. Using stylus or button controls, players arrange the three-blox-high stacks as they fall. Match blox in groups of three or more, vertically or horizontally, to eliminate them before the stack reaches the top… but it doesn’t end there.

Players don’t just stack the blox. They smash them, blast them, or explode them with special blox including jokers, bombs, frogs, mushrooms, fireballs and slot machines.

Big Box of Blox, which is available for Palm OS and Windows Mobile handhelds, is available for $19.95  from the Astraware web site.
