Roger Ebert’s Great Movies is now available as an app on iOS devices. Read on for more.

The app includes all of the aforementioned over 300 movies and reviews with stills from the film.

You can also create lists of your own of films that you want to see and those you have seen. The app also allows you to share reviews with Facebook and Twitter and via e-mail.
