  • After Credits - Post-credits scenes are a common feature in many blockbuster films these days, but not every release has them. Rather than waiting for the credits to roll to find out if you need to sit through them, open up After Credits so you can know for sure. The app is entirely built on user submissions, and you can help out by submitting your own indications for which movies have post-credit scenes and which don't, including descriptions for each post-credit sequence. You can add tags to films to group them together and make them easier to search. You can even voluntarily spoil yourself on a film if you don't want to wait to know what happens. - Free - Download Now
