    One of the hardest things a stage manager has to do is find actors and actresses to fill the roles. IMDb can help them do that. A manager can literally spend 5 hours a day or more on this app. I love searching through it myself to learn more about the people behind the entertainment.

    I tend to watch movies based on true stories and those that are top rated, usually 6 on IMDb. Browsing through this category gives me enough and more suggestions to take up my whole weekend watching some of the best dramas and thrillers.

    There's so much going on at comic book conventions and it can be difficult to keep up with the 100s of celebrities there. If you see someone and arent sure if they are from a blockbuster movie or just another fan, you can check out IMDb to help you identify them.

    Actors who are just getting their foot in the door need to make connections with all types of people in the industry. It can be difficult to determine if your 20 new followers on Instagram are fellow actors, writers, or directors, or if they are simply part of your growing fan base. IMDb can help you recognize exactly who you are talking to in showbiz and learn more about their past projects.

    I use the app mainly for watching shows. Nice to be able to watch shows for free. Ads aren't ridiculous. My biggest complaint is sometimes when you turn your phone, or minimize the app, then it will just randomly take you back an episode or two and will reset your watch history on the episode you were on. So you have to start it over and rewatch all the ads again when you fast forward to the part you left off on.

    Excellent app, I use it daily, and always on the fly for a quick search. However with the last update you made the default load page not ‘Search’ but ‘Home’. This is a huge problem for me. First, the ‘Home’ page by design is cool, but because it’s loading content it’s slower to load. Instinctively I expect the home page to have a search bar but it doesn’t. So by the time the page loads I realize I have to manually click the ‘Search’ option in the lower bar. While this isn’t a huge problem, it adds the extra step of me having to having to click the search icon, which is counter-intuitive. This wasn’t the design in all previous IMDB updates, why the change now? This would be a 5 star review but because of the un-intuitive design I’m giving it 3. Not going to lie, I’ve used IMDB less and Google more for quick searches. Please either allow for a ‘Default’ setting where the user can choose what loads on startup or put a search bar on the ‘Home’ page. Even the latter, quick searches mean fast results, and having to wait for a ‘Home’ page to load and cache content every time I start the app doesn’t allow for rapid results.

    I’ve long looked to IMDB for most, if not all of my pop culture news... and unfortunately with the last update I’m forced to use google news instead... The news topic list drones on without a seeming end and in order for me to switch topics (Top, Movies, Tv, Celeb) I either have to scroll all the way back to the top or I have to back out of the news and then open it again and switch. There was a similar issue a few updates back but it was resolved. It’s too clunky now and really like it if they streamlined it again. Until then I’m left giving it a 3 star review... 😞 (Update: I had known about tapping the top of the screen, as I said it’s just a clunky design. Before the update, the topics were at the top and immediately accessible for switching with just a tap. It just felt more streamlined. I am understanding of change and I accept it freely, especially when it makes things easier and functions better. I’m a big fan of the bug fixes that were addressed like when the app would restart as I was changing back and forth between this and other apps. Or when it would close the page I was on when my screen would lock.... Those fixes were great, and I thank you for them.)

    I've had the app for years. Great 99% of the time, until I want to watch a trailer, then it skips all over the place, doesn't load. Just recently I tried to watch the trailer for Remeniscence and when I rotated my screen, I got a third of my screen playing a trailer for another movie while the other 2/3 were just black. Just get a decent media player IMDB
  • The BEST APP EVER! Jul 5, 2019

    I use the IMDB Every Day, normally SEVERAL times a day! The only other App that even comes close is my Bible apps! The amount of information available at the tip of my fingers is Outstanding! The only thing I wish The owners the IMDB app would bring back is the ability to note “Goofs”! I love the ability to note “Trivia” is Great but I sure do miss reading the goofs that people were able to notice and comment on. I wish y’all would consider bringing that one little feature back. Other than that, it’s amazing how much information that’s stored and available to us free of charge! I frequently ask other people who don’t have the IMDB on their Smartphone one simple question: “WHY?” On a side note, when the window popped up in the app asking me to rate IMBD, I gave you the highest available star, but when I went to write my comments, the message line on the “Write a Review” section of the review said to “Tap a Star to Rate”. Although I tried tapping on the fifth star, meaning the Highest Rating, nothing happened. Just thought I’d let you know! Bryan Phillips

    Loved the app. But the new updates are horrendous. Now in the TV episode guides there are unnecessary pictures next to each episode, which means more chance of spoilers if you just want to skim the episode ratings of a show you havent watched. Another problem is ratings and the number of ratings also do not update until days later. Also the search is now really bad it doesnt show all the results anymore.
  • Fantastic app to track movies and shows & view ratings Oct 21, 2019

    By multiple uses
    I love the many functions on this app! I use the add to watch list function to create a running list of things I want to watch. It’s great because you can view your entire list but it also puts it into categories (tv, movies, etc), so you don’t have to filter through your whole list. I only remove things from my list once I’ve completely watched every season and the show is over so I don’t forget what season I’m on. I make sure I rate any movies or shows I watch as it’s a good way to remember if I’ve watched it before. Four years later I’m not going to remember if I watched a mediocre movie unless I rated it. I can see I rated it by searching the movie on IMDb or they also have a “your rated movies and shows list.” I also use my rated list to give people recommendations. I use the app a lot for movie trailers and overall ratings. I also use it for tv show and movie suggestions based on what’s popular. Now they even have free streaming content! Fantastic app!

    Because, it is a one stop shop for all things cinematic. It is my favorite source (BEYOND Rotten Tomatoes, Metacritic, ect.) for professional and non professional reviews, overviews, random facts, technical specs, movie news, upcoming films, and an over all sense of community amongst cinephiles. It accepts contributions from professional and non professional reviewers as well as trivia facts which is then checked and approved by people hired to review the individual submissions. I enjoy how the program makes it possible to not only express individual opinions of all films and television shows, but also provides a place to increase their knowledge of film and get suggestions of other films they may not have found on their own. I trust the IMDb score over other media reporting because it is a collective intake of people who are fascinated and appreciative of the craft of film making and are interested enough to take the time and express their opinions. It’s worth having for anyone intrigued by the art of film.

    Am constantly using IMDb. When watching TV and movies I guess at what shows I have seen the actors and actress in, or if they are new I find out about them using IMDb. I use it for finding information on tv shows/movies like when and where they were made, well as trivia about the show/movie and the actors. Also if they’re remakes. I love trivia like this and IMDb gives me the answers I am looking for 99% of the time. IMDb also has an option to create an account. This lets me flag movies that I would like to see and IMDb let’s me know when moves will be in my area as well as the theaters, times and costs. IMDb lets me know about new TV programs, news about new and old programs, what’s popular and what’swhat’s coming going to be on new in the fall and spring times and dates. I think anybody with the love for movies and TV will a really enjoy this app. Major kudos to the inventors of this app! A fantastic job!
  • Love this app but… Feb 12, 2018

    By Summers03
    My husband and I use this app very often to look up movie stuff, mostly to try and prove the other wrong in something lol. I would go on the app every night to look at all the headlines for top news, movies, tv and celeb to see what’s going on. Lately there are soooo many articles it takes forever to scroll through them all to read the headlines and see if there is anything I would like to read up on. The problem is most of it is just repetitive headlines just from different sources. I honestly don’t go on and look anymore because it’s too much now. If it was all different story subjects I wouldn’t mind but seeing the same ones over and over and over and over again it just annoying. Wish there was a way that the headline shows once and when you click on it it will show all the different choices for sources for you to chose from. At least then it wouldn’t be so much to scroll through. Also what happened to being able to rate reviews on the app? Please bring that back.

    After the most recent updates, I am not happy with the app. The search bar is at the top of the page while the search button is at the bottom. Videos don't play correctly. There are now more ads than even Facebook has. That is a huge statement in of itself. There are many more areas that need improvement as well. This has been my go to for all things movie related for many years. Sadly, I will be going elsewhere for my movie fix.

    May update ruined what used to be a great app. Rather than making it faster and fixing bugs as the update claimed it's made the app far slower and crashes or freezes regularly. Guess there's other apps in the sea! June update seems to have stopped it freezing but app still painfully slow and pages still jump up or down randomly. I spoke too soon as app still freezing.

    New updates are terrible. Everything takes longer to load now, and my app crashes frequently. Even some of my ratings of shows have vanished. My watchlist is sometimes there and sometimes I have nothing in my watchlist. I can't use the app with my WIFI, only with my mobile data????Never had these issues in all my years using IMDb until the latest update. The UI looks worse as well, talking longer to scroll through pages, would like the old version back. This is a major downgrade, not an update.
  • Kinda Bad Apr 2, 2020

    By Cameron M. P.
    If it weren’t for the fact that it is the only streaming service that has the show I’m looking for and offers it for free, I wouldn’t use it. I’ll leave the app for a minute and it will completely lose my spot in what I was watching. This is unfortunate especially considering the episodes are on the longer side so it can be hard to find my way back to where I was. Additionally, when I try to skip too far ahead in an episode after it has inevitably lost my place after I close the app for a second, it also tends to freeze up(yes I mean freeze, not buffer). As far as I know, this is not due too my connection as my internet is fine when using any other application. On several occasions, it has frozen when an ad is supposed to play. The ads are short and didn’t seem like a problem until I found myself constantly having to skip around looking for where I was after it loses my place; needless to say, this wasted a lot of time I’d rather be spending just enjoying the show. I appreciate the wide variety of shows offered here for free but the aforementioned problems really prevent me from enjoying it to the fullest.

    I used to love this app but since recent update it is slow slow sloooooow. Works for maybe a minute then hangs up. Then it says Wait or Close App or Try Another Network (what!?). Also stupid to put Search button at bottom of page then you have to go to top of page to type in your search. Put it back the way it was at top, no button. I'll be using desktop instead of app until you fix everything.

    One of my main reasons for checking IMDb is checking for movie reviews. For some reason the app shows much less reviews than the website. For some movies there's no reviews at all (but on the website there is)! Could be very aggressive caching. For me up to date results are essential. On the good side, the app is fast and simple. Then again, I would not want to have to use an app in the first place, but I'm forced to because the website is so heavy on phone.
  • Love the info, hate the search feature Dec 22, 2019

    By TisaMeta
    Okay, so, iOS devices all have search bars at the top (albeit, after pulling down). We are used to it. And we are used to having a cursor in the search bar, ready to go. Now you’ve gotten rid of the search bar on the main page (searching, of course, is probably at least 85% of the reason users have the app), moved the search feature to a button tap way at the bottom, but with the search bar itself being back at the top. I know we are to “touch search again to pull up the keyboard,” but it is seriously clunky. If I touched search, it should be obvious I am trying to type my query. Since this specific app is for iOS, why not match the gestures of the operating system and have users pull down on the home page to open search *with a keyboard up? Would be such a streamlined search to appease the iPhone crowd, and the home page and its articles would still be present to those browsing. IMDB is my go-to service for movies and celebrity info, but every time I open the app makes me regret it. Please change it!

    Had to update and reinvent the wheel! This app went from brilliance in its ease of use and navigation, to convoluted and gimmick looking...and for what? Long time user and sustained rating for years...now turning to alternative sources for such movie database and TV series information. Please pass on the congratulatory praise to the app development team!

    They have some ok movies and shows, but they are really proud of their every 10minute WOKE ads, but whatever, its free. 6/11/21 now they cant help themselves by messing with the screen sizing going from full screen, to lettbox, to widescreen every couple of seconds... Lol but like i said its free and i wouldnt pay for a service if they had one now.

    New update - no change! Still slow to open pages, still freezes repeatedly, still has the same number of votes on each film/show frozen from about a month ago, still poor advance search function. Well done IMDB developers in making the update just as bad as it was before, that's a real talent you seem to have.

  • Ratings are ridiculous Sep 24, 2017

    By Tanner and Az
    I love movies, and i often base my potential viewing of more obscure (i am aware of most wide spread releases and usually avoid the majority) on a combination of the metascore and the user reviews of imdb. Sadly, the user reviews are horribly skewed by insane “10s” given by what are either really dumb people, or individuals that have something to gain by views of a particular film. How can imdb vet these people? I dont know, but i also don’t get paid to figure that out. I am confident that somebody does get paid for that and if not. Somebody should. I will not stop using the app only due to the fact that i am interested in both the trivia of a film and the usable information of past projects of actors. I am sure that i am not alone in this complaint. Imdb. Kindly clean up this shortcoming of an otherwise awesome app and website. A boom box can change the world.

  • Terrible since the recent 2019 changes. Dec 21, 2019

    By gretagarbo123*
    The recent changes in 2019 are terrible. I have an I Phone 8 and now there is garbage and pop up videos all over my IMDB screens. I can’t even access my “ history” easily. I have to click multiple times in search. There is no menu. When I do finally get my history I only get about 10 movies listed. Please someone FIX THIS! My husband has an I Phone 10 and his phone isn’t like this. He gets a menu where he can click history and then he gets his entire viewing history. I can’t get anything easily except a bunch of junk the clutters my screen. Prior to your changes I would have given this app a 5. Now it’s a 1 or lower. I’m going to quit using this if there isn’t a fix. My phone is not ancient. This was a wonderful app before. Now it’s annoying.

    Outstanding app that allows you to review movies and their credits from old to new. I especially like reviewing the autobiographies of cast members which include actors, directors, writers, and producers alike. The associated photo galleries are fun to scroll through as well. The trivia notes associated with each movie production are also so very interesting. Truthfully there are so many neat features that this app offers that I really can spend the time to describe them all. In fact, I am certain that there are many functions that I’m not even aware of and I use this app everyday because I love all genres of movies and I find it fun to explore all aspects of their production. They also offer free movies and TV programs for streaming which is a real bonus for me. For me personally it is the most entertaining, informational, and educational app that I have ever used!
  • Essential Sep 8, 2020

    By Witty, or otherwise.
    Not only do I use this App for information on whatever film (or program) I am in need of, but often you can watch fantastic films, at no cost, and that is rad, especially if you're not able to leave the house fr whatever reason & want something different than the usual offerings. The most difficult aspect of this App is the deluge of info, and reading about the new sequel that I was not aware of, and this leads into a virtual plethora of clicking on new posts, leading to new premiers, and that turns into HOURS I am not complaining at all. I am so full of knowledge about film & such that being so aware of said topics allows one to inform any person that would unknowingly miss my banter during lunch or dinner with friends, thank you IMDb! I have so much to say about so many films, I am affectionately known as "The Movie Guru"!
  • Commercials with Commercials? Sep 19, 2019

    By Browncoat Cowboy
    A preview for a film is a promotion to get audiences into theaters. A preview is already a type of commercial. Now I sit through commercials so I can see the commercials for the films and shows. This has been going on for quite a while now, so I very much doubt if it’s going to change. I just really feel like it’s going a bit too far and I hope it doesn’t go any further at this point. If the extra revenue is necessary, all I can say is that sometimes more isn’t necessarily better, sometimes it’s just more in my opinion. IMDB is still my go-to resource on the internet for accurate film entertainment information any time I need it. I’ve been using it for almost twenty years I think? There’s still no better site on the web for reliable film and television data and the application reflects that same reliability in my opinion. That’s my soul reason for still giving the application four stars for excellence.
  • Bring back controllable font size Dec 21, 2017

    By Rajona
    I agree with CAQueen wholeheartedly. I rarely write reviews, but I felt I had to write about the recent change to a consistently tiny font size in users reviews. I love reading these to get a sense of a movie. However, it is now much more difficult in the latest app version. The font is no longer controlled by me, but is fixed to a size that is too small for me to read comfortably. Please revert this to the way it had been prior to this change. I (and my eyes) will be eternally thankful. Update: for version 8.3.1 (Dec 18) Thank you so very much! In only 8 short days you have corrected the problem and brought back the ability to have a larger font in the user reviews. I can now read them without eye strain. You don't know how happy I am to be able to read these again. IMDB is an invaluable app for me. I love movies. And your app helps me to appreciate them even more. Thanks again.
  • Please help me so that I can watch movies on IMBD!!! Jun 9, 2019

    By rap500
    I love the IMBD website. I use it all the time! My only issue is that I would like to use your feature to watch movies and I meet the criteria outlined on your website to have access to this feature, however, I have not been able to use it. Whenever I try I'm told I'm not using a supported device. I have an iPhone 7, a 2017 UHD Samsung TV, a 3rd generation iPad, and an approximately 2012 ASUS tablet. Granted they are not the most up-to-date devices, yet, none of my devices work. It is possible that I'm doing something wrong, however, I've been unable to use your feature even though I meet the requirements as I understand them. Please provide instructions so that I and other IMBD loyalists can use your wonderful feature. I would appreciate it very much! Thank you very much for your attention to this matter!
  • I Miss the Forums Oct 20, 2018

    By Recynd
    I’ve been using IMDB from the very early days, and is now my go-to app for movie info. I love the 10-Star system (so superior to the 5-Star system, IMO), the (sometimes fairly extensive) film facts, the links to the actors, and the reviews, both professional and amateur. However...I miss the forums. While I understand why they were discontinued, it seems that a bit of creative problem-solving could have kept the only truly-interactive feature operating, and in a civil manner. Perhaps allowing forums for just the smaller, indy-type movies (I can see the problem with forums for blockbusters), with some way for the participants to self-police could be a compromise? It was amazing to be able to communicate with a film’s stakeholders and other fans, and I’ve missed it. Otherwise, ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ (five stars)
  • Gone down hill Sep 15, 2017

    By BallouBear
    I seem to have gotten more out of IMDB when it first came out, the content and availability of the films etc are not like I would like. Please film makers, suggestions are welcome.... I feel that the actor pictures are essential to this database due to its overwhelmingly large content of persons and films. I'm stuck on the content of the bio's because it is an essential part of how the actor came to this ridiculously hard entertainment industry and how they make it their own and put their personalities into their work. The method acting and profiling needed to portray a person be it a famous, struggling, rich, poor, healthy, dieing, .... etc is of a marvelous process that I would love each actors insight into. Please write your story to those who are being your eyes for 120 minutes, 7,200 seconds!!!
  • Does the job Mar 22, 2020

    By BrentonBrown96
    I get the info I’m looking for but IMDb underrates the value it added to the film community through the forums and the ease of sharing lists and recommendations from the people these movies are actually made for. It just turned more into a members club for insider information and that’s because it either got bought or sold but at the end of the day movies are art and the user apps made around the medium should promote it as such. But the mortal fear of losing out or not getting what’s available motivated decisions from big wigs who don’t genuinely care about the millions of users of the database, because it is essentially the Wikipedia of entertainment and they should’ve kept the focus on the community like any forward thinking businessperson actually would’ve.
  • A Truly Amazing App (Movie Lover Or Not) Feb 24, 2018

    By YoshiTheBeast
    IMDb is my favourite movie-media app of all time, and I find myself using it constantly for good reasons. It always allows me to browse Movies and TV Shows as I please very simply and easy. There are a LOT of times where I’m on my TV, endlessly browsing movies knowing I’m never going to find a good one to watch. But with IMDb, I can do quick and easy research to find the movie or TV show I want to watch. IMDb also makes it easier to rate movies and write reviews, seeing as I like rating movies and giving my opinion. And being someone who watches TV a whole lot, IMDb is just overall helpful in so many different ways. The app is also extremely simple and easy to use and operate, and in the two years I have been using the app, it has never crashed ONCE. Another thing about IMDb is that it’s completely free, and an app as good as this should be worth at least five dollars. IMDb also takes up almost no space on your phone whatsoever. In Conclusion, whether you’re a movie and TV lover or not, I’d recommend getting it. It is a great app, and is very useful in so many ways. Thanks for reading!
  • Love, but I am not a fan of the most recent update. Mar 27, 2018

    By carrieq4
    I have been using IMDB for years and love it. For me, it elevates the movie watching experience with easily accessible information about actors and Hollywood trivia. My only complaint is that you know longer supply the age of the actor in parentheses next to their birthdate. It’s a small thing that only saves a small amount of time, but it makes it so much easier for folks that are bad at math. It was also one of those small key things that separated you from your competition, such as google. This change will not cause me to stop using IMDB, but seems to be an easy fix that can be added back in the next update. Please consider doing so.
  • Should be better...Could be better... Oct 28, 2019

    By mapoorboy
    I love how I can find tons of info in one place about shows and actors and tech crew even, but I find that this app needs work! I know they have the resources and the money, so why not? If I find an actor or show I want to watch a video on, that video barely ever plays. I have to wait forever! I have tried this on old & new phones, with data or WiFi connection-many different kinds, iPad and computers. It’s the IMDB site that can’t seem to load them. About every 5th time, the video will play. We all know that the info can’t always be relied on, but I still enjoy what I learn. Just wish they wouldn’t show u options that don’t work!!
  • I love this app so much but I REALLY WISH.. Dec 4, 2018

    By the truth comes out
    I love this app so much!! But I REALLY WISH that when you were looking at an actors page and are scrolling through films and shows they have appeared in that you could click something that would allow you to see them IN THAT SHOW/MOVIE. Does that make sense? Like if I’m looking at Megan Fox’s page and go “Wait! What? She guest starred on New Girl?” Now when I click on the New Girl page I just see all the main characters but I wanted to see Megan Fox ON New Girl. Instead I have to scroll forever or google it. It would be so cool if you could click on their character name and see them AS THAT CHARACTER! Just a suggestion!:) but I love the app!
  • Jun 7, 2021

    By Brendan McGowen
    I use the app mainly for watching shows. Nice to be able to watch shows for free. Ads aren't ridiculous. My biggest complaint is sometimes when you turn your phone, or minimize the app, then it will just randomly take you back an episode or two and will reset your watch history on the episode you were on. So you have to start it over and rewatch all the ads again when you fast forward to the part you left off on.
  • Been using IMDB since the beginning of time but.... Mar 1, 2020

    By Anon.111
    Excellent app, I use it daily, and always on the fly for a quick search. However with the last update you made the default load page not ‘Search’ but ‘Home’. This is a huge problem for me. First, the ‘Home’ page by design is cool, but because it’s loading content it’s slower to load. Instinctively I expect the home page to have a search bar but it doesn’t. So by the time the page loads I realize I have to manually click the ‘Search’ option in the lower bar. While this isn’t a huge problem, it adds the extra step of me having to having to click the search icon, which is counter-intuitive. This wasn’t the design in all previous IMDB updates, why the change now? This would be a 5 star review but because of the un-intuitive design I’m giving it 3. Not going to lie, I’ve used IMDB less and Google more for quick searches. Please either allow for a ‘Default’ setting where the user can choose what loads on startup or put a search bar on the ‘Home’ page. Even the latter, quick searches mean fast results, and having to wait for a ‘Home’ page to load and cache content every time I start the app doesn’t allow for rapid results.
  • Unfortunate Mar 8, 2018

    By H16H_C0MM4ND3R
    I’ve long looked to IMDB for most, if not all of my pop culture news... and unfortunately with the last update I’m forced to use google news instead... The news topic list drones on without a seeming end and in order for me to switch topics (Top, Movies, Tv, Celeb) I either have to scroll all the way back to the top or I have to back out of the news and then open it again and switch. There was a similar issue a few updates back but it was resolved. It’s too clunky now and really like it if they streamlined it again. Until then I’m left giving it a 3 star review... 😞 (Update: I had known about tapping the top of the screen, as I said it’s just a clunky design. Before the update, the topics were at the top and immediately accessible for switching with just a tap. It just felt more streamlined. I am understanding of change and I accept it freely, especially when it makes things easier and functions better. I’m a big fan of the bug fixes that were addressed like when the app would restart as I was changing back and forth between this and other apps. Or when it would close the page I was on when my screen would lock.... Those fixes were great, and I thank you for them.)

    I've had the app for years. Great 99% of the time, until I want to watch a trailer, then it skips all over the place, doesn't load. Just recently I tried to watch the trailer for Remeniscence and when I rotated my screen, I got a third of my screen playing a trailer for another movie while the other 2/3 were just black. Just get a decent media player IMDB
  • Jun 9, 2021

    By Uzair Ahmed
    Loved the app. But the new updates are horrendous. Now in the TV episode guides there are unnecessary pictures next to each episode, which means more chance of spoilers if you just want to skim the episode ratings of a show you havent watched. Another problem is ratings and the number of ratings also do not update until days later. Also the search is now really bad it doesnt show all the results anymore.
  • Love this app but… Feb 12, 2018

    By Summers03
    My husband and I use this app very often to look up movie stuff, mostly to try and prove the other wrong in something lol. I would go on the app every night to look at all the headlines for top news, movies, tv and celeb to see what’s going on. Lately there are soooo many articles it takes forever to scroll through them all to read the headlines and see if there is anything I would like to read up on. The problem is most of it is just repetitive headlines just from different sources. I honestly don’t go on and look anymore because it’s too much now. If it was all different story subjects I wouldn’t mind but seeing the same ones over and over and over and over again it just annoying. Wish there was a way that the headline shows once and when you click on it it will show all the different choices for sources for you to chose from. At least then it wouldn’t be so much to scroll through. Also what happened to being able to rate reviews on the app? Please bring that back.

    Connecting can take 2 or 3 tries before the Sensi syncs with my router (RSSI=50). Programming would be easier if I had a Windows app - phone screens are too small. In fact, my 3 thermostats will not quite fit on the home screen. Instructions could be clarified, like "now connect your phone to the SENSI" and later "now connect your phone to your ROUTER."
  • Terrible update Dec 24, 2019

    By Chewysrobot
    I’ve been using the IMDB app for years. It used to be great but now it’s just frustrating. For example, I wanted to find the top box office numbers for the week. Can’t find it. I want to check movie news and now I have to keep scrolling down past stuff I don’t wanna see. Previous versions, you would tap “movies” and then check out whatever you wanted. Now it’s like pulling teeth. Been stressfully exploring the app now for a half hour. I still don’t know the box office numbers for this week. It is still fairly easy to find a movie. Search option is now down on the bottom. Click that and a search bar appears at the top. Kind of annoying but it’s fine. The “What To Watch” and “Top Picks” is a huge waste of time. The top picks we’re Saving Private Ryan, Up, and the 24 tv show movie from 11 years ago. Please bring back some of the past options and make it more user friendly. The app was very focused before. Now it’s all over the place and filled with fluff I don’t want to see.

  • Unable to add to my WatchList...? Aug 23, 2019

    By BlondeEnigma
    I’m not sure what the issue is, but I’m not able to add any more movies, TV shows, etc. to my WatchList...? Every time I attempt to add anything to my WatchList, this insanely long error message pops up, basically saying I’m unable to add items at this time...? The odd thing is, that I went on the Website and tried adding from a “separate” account, i.e. different email address, and I didn’t have a problem; however, when I signed back in with my original account, i.e. my primary email address, it wouldn’t allow me to add anything to my original WatchList, again... So, I’m not sure what the problem is, I’ve never had anything but positive experiences with the IMDb App, and I’ve been using IMDb from the beginning... I’m a longtime, frequent IMDb user, and I’m becoming concerned because I don’t want, nor do I have the kind of time to completely redo my IMDb account. I don’t want to lose everything I’ve saved, added, etc... Please help... ☹️😥🤯🥵
  • Kinda Bad Apr 2, 2020

    By Cameron M. P.
    If it weren’t for the fact that it is the only streaming service that has the show I’m looking for and offers it for free, I wouldn’t use it. I’ll leave the app for a minute and it will completely lose my spot in what I was watching. This is unfortunate especially considering the episodes are on the longer side so it can be hard to find my way back to where I was. Additionally, when I try to skip too far ahead in an episode after it has inevitably lost my place after I close the app for a second, it also tends to freeze up(yes I mean freeze, not buffer). As far as I know, this is not due too my connection as my internet is fine when using any other application. On several occasions, it has frozen when an ad is supposed to play. The ads are short and didn’t seem like a problem until I found myself constantly having to skip around looking for where I was after it loses my place; needless to say, this wasted a lot of time I’d rather be spending just enjoying the show. I appreciate the wide variety of shows offered here for free but the aforementioned problems really prevent me from enjoying it to the fullest.
  • May 29, 2021

    By Jukka Snellman
    One of my main reasons for checking IMDb is checking for movie reviews. For some reason the app shows much less reviews than the website. For some movies there's no reviews at all (but on the website there is)! Could be very aggressive caching. For me up to date results are essential. On the good side, the app is fast and simple. Then again, I would not want to have to use an app in the first place, but I'm forced to because the website is so heavy on phone.
  • Love the info, hate the search feature Dec 22, 2019

    By TisaMeta
    Okay, so, iOS devices all have search bars at the top (albeit, after pulling down). We are used to it. And we are used to having a cursor in the search bar, ready to go. Now you’ve gotten rid of the search bar on the main page (searching, of course, is probably at least 85% of the reason users have the app), moved the search feature to a button tap way at the bottom, but with the search bar itself being back at the top. I know we are to “touch search again to pull up the keyboard,” but it is seriously clunky. If I touched search, it should be obvious I am trying to type my query. Since this specific app is for iOS, why not match the gestures of the operating system and have users pull down on the home page to open search *with a keyboard up? Would be such a streamlined search to appease the iPhone crowd, and the home page and its articles would still be present to those browsing. IMDB is my go-to service for movies and celebrity info, but every time I open the app makes me regret it. Please change it!

  • Frustrating Horrible Redesign Jan 25, 2020

    By TLaffin
    I’ve tried hard but can’t anymore. The “second” recent redesign is too frustrating for me to bother with. I used to read the “News” daily or a couple times when bored and now I have to scroll 9 screen lengths past a ton of movie placements and “topics” I don’t care about just to get to the news section. I quickly got used to the search feature clicking on the bottom and then the text box being right above it - now it’s back on top. So click at the very bottom of the screen but the next thing you want to do, type the actual search, is not then a giant thumb reach to the top of the phone - last all of the “suggested”/paid placements. My two local theaters don’t even use a compatible source for IMDb ticketing. I’ll just use Google for my movie searches now. Maybe Google will direct me back now and again, or maybe not. I guess it depends who is paying Google to appear above IMDb in the results.
  • A Big Step Backward Dec 11, 2019

    By Deca Man
    This app has always been a must have. The number of downloads should be laurels enough for the value of this app. But this new home page redesign has really hurt the app’s efficiency and utility. The size of the jam packed image tiles make poor use of the valuable real estate on the mobile screen. Believe it or not some people still like to read or sort into lists! The lower screen navigation is particularly poorly implemented as well. It jumps around up and down, eventually ending back up to the top where it’s always been ( and where my subconscious muscle memory guides my thumb). No side bar to quickly navigate to sections means losing precious time as images jump around to rerender in the display. If you wish to do one thing positive in search, please allow us to save favorite lists created by others, not just ourselves. Some users and editors have curated great lists of films, directors or genres but once found you can never get back to them without a side leap to google and out of the app. The decision to change this home screen or landing page was a bad one. Hope IMDB listens to the voices of loyal users who have take the time to provide this kind of feedback.
  • Update went downhill! Nov 16, 2019

    By Harvick29rcr
    I’m truly upset to see the new update. I had a heck of a time trying to find my “watched list”/ Ratings and my “history”.. I use IMDb daily and have rates over 8,000 movies/tv. Now I have to search and search for what was a simple feature before. Before, one could just press the “recent” button on the top and there were ALL of your movies and ratings. It’s impossible to look through this mess of an app now to find these simple things. Most people don’t use IMDb to watch TV. Most people want to know what actor was in that movie they saw in 1983. Now it’s impossible. I used to give this 5 starts but now 2 is the most it’s worth. I’m now most likely going to delete my account. Rotten tomatoes is officially easier to use now. Shame on the developers.
  • Less & less useful with each iteration Mar 11, 2020

    By travelerCA57
    It seems to me that over the years this app has become less & less about movies and more & more about IMDb. It used to open to immediate info about what is playing right now near me. That primary information has gone ever-lower on the page, so that now it’s almost impossible to reach. Celebrity interviews pumping up their latest project don’t interest me, and birthdays or over-the-years comparisons of stars as they age, even less. Connecting with strangers socially is the last thing I want from a movie app. Tell us what’s playing HERE and NOW, and let us dig for more information about our favorite directors or actors - don’t front-load it. And please bring back the search field at the top.
  • Jun 3, 2021

    By Keith Armbrust
    After the most recent updates, I am not happy with the app. The search bar is at the top of the page while the search button is at the bottom. Videos don't play correctly. There are now more ads than even Facebook has. That is a huge statement in of itself. There are many more areas that need improvement as well. This has been my go to for all things movie related for many years. Sadly, I will be going elsewhere for my movie fix.

    New updates are terrible. Everything takes longer to load now, and my app crashes frequently. Even some of my ratings of shows have vanished. My watchlist is sometimes there and sometimes I have nothing in my watchlist. I can't use the app with my WIFI, only with my mobile data????Never had these issues in all my years using IMDb until the latest update. The UI looks worse as well, talking longer to scroll through pages, would like the old version back. This is a major downgrade, not an update.

    I used to love this app but since recent update it is slow slow sloooooow. Works for maybe a minute then hangs up. Then it says Wait or Close App or Try Another Network (what!?). Also stupid to put Search button at bottom of page then you have to go to top of page to type in your search. Put it back the way it was at top, no button. I'll be using desktop instead of app until you fix everything.

Please pass on the congratulatory praise to the app development team!
  • The app design is breaking bad bigtime. Jan 17, 2020

    By kriket011
    When you look at an actor’s page, the years of the movies/shows they’ve done are removed. When you look at a movie/show page some of the actor’s role names are removed. What’s up with that? All you‘ve really done is turn the app into something less useful than it was before, degraded it. I don’t understand why people do that, it’s just stupid. I’m sure there’s a reason behind IMDb’s app design breaking bad, I just wish I knew what it is, because you can’t go so wrong by accident. This bad design is by design but why? Crucial information removed from the pages (title’s year, actor’s role names), UI’s main function (search) removed from the main page. iOS has search box literally on each and every screen, I wonder now if it would be faster and easier to search IMDb from iOS search without opening the app first, or with 3D touch on the app icon. Now when I think about it, it must be. That still doesn’t bring back the missing info misteriously removed from the pages. Maybe the web interface proves itself better than the app.
  • Horrible streaming platform. Just the worst. May 4, 2020

    By jordan3119
    Every part of your streaming service for movies and TV shows is awful. You should be able to pause it then come back and have it actually start from where you left it off. Not make me watch 5 minutes of commercials then start the whole show over again. It’s slow to load, too many commercials, and just looks awful. I’m not talking about picture quality either, I’m talking about the layout. It’s like you took as little time and effort as possible to put this thing together. You’re the only place I can freely stream one of my favorite TV shows - Fringe - and it’s getting to the point where I’d rather just not watch the show than deal with your horrible app. It’s seriously awful. I’d rather spend the day at the DMV then try to use your app to watch a show. I’d rather call my mother than use your app to watch a movie. Judging by the quality of your app I’d say you don’t have the highest quality employees so I’ll just put it in a way you will have an easier time understanding: YOUR APP=BAD. APP IS BIG BAD. NO NO GOOD. MAKE BETTER. MAKE APP WORK GOOD.

    My favorite feature would have to be when you're typing a review for a movie or show and turn your phone sideways, it deletes it! It reloads the entire page, no matter how much you typed. I love that.
