Think Redbox for jet-setters who prefer to download rather than stream. Say what? It's a new movie-rental option found in several airports in the U.S. and Canada.
Available: iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. Requires iOS 6 or later. Also available for Android 2.3 or later on Google Play and Windows. Requires 4GB available space
Cost: The app is free; movie rentals are $4.99.
What it does: It's an app that works in conjunction with a digital rental kiosk.
What's hot: It was just what I needed at just the right time — on a 31/2-hour layover in Houston before the last leg of a return flight home. The kiosk directions were easy to understand, the app was quick to download to my smartphone and although the movie took 15 minutes to download, I was told in advance and continued because I had the time. The best part? I didn't have to rely on sluggish airport Wi-Fi because the Digiboo kiosk has its own.
