It’s nice but buffers a lot
by Lilleone on 2019/12/13 06:51
I downloaded the app so I could watch one show in particular and I’ll most likely keep it after I finish the show. My only problem is that I can’t get through an entire episode without it pausing and buffering. This happens several times throughout an episode
Going strong with IMDB and hanging in there.
by nightflight6 on 2019/12/13 04:18
I simply love having to be involved with films and entertainment with this fantastic post. There isn’t one day that I don’t look at IMDb for all the joy it brings me. I perhaps remember those old critics reviews they were off the wall and funny. There new opinions are refreshing. You wonderful people are doing a great job. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays. The very best for New Year 2020.
Previous version vs. new version.
by big poppa 2017 on 2019/12/13 03:35
The new version is hard to navigate. I liked the old version better.
New UI is Really Bad
by Baroda Bulldog on 2019/12/12 22:26
After giving it another week, this new UI is worse than my initial estimate. I don’t mind change, but this new UI adds clicks, forces users to scroll past garbage to get to the tools, and is generally unpleasant to use. It feels like any other poorly designed app out there. It has lost sight of why people use the app in favor of pushing its far less interesting lists and stories. Worse, the 3rd party stories they link to either reload constantly for ads, making things unreadable, or (in the case of The Wrap) require a user account to read the story. I don’t understand linking to a site where the content is not enabled. Used to be good. Now, it’s just a PITA.
When can we share our eating on social media??

Can no longer clear search history

Lost the ability to clear the search history with the last update. Otherwise I still like the app
Updated version of IMDB
by TimtimeTr on 2019/12/12 05:08
First I want to say I’ve been a supporter of IMDB for over a decade. However this new updated version is an absolute disappointment. The user’s history tab has been eliminated, I lost all the movies I’ve ever searched for. The search bar in any app is always at the top, why did they put it at the bottom? Different isn’t always better. This app is Soooooo bad I’m going to delete it and use Flixster from now on. When the developers pull their head out, I might down load it again.
Worst app ever
by magabigan on 2019/12/12 00:41
You have to watch 130 seconds add after every few minutes 😡 Tubi is 1000 times better than this crappy thing.
New update brings search functions several clicks away
by Pakitt on 2019/12/11 20:50
To search something you now always have to click a couple of times instead of simply accessing the search field on the home page as it was in the old but helpful UI. You cannot even set the search tab as the default one when opening the app. An excellent app for movie lovers with excellent lookup of information, is now focused being more of a promotional tool. Pity.
Indispensable!
by MagnumPeon on 2019/12/11 19:43
This app is a godsend, a fountain of valuable information on all things related to television and movie theater viewing! It’s truly encyclopedic!
Sellouts
by Burr the Conqueror on 2019/12/11 16:15
The app (as well as the website) has become so inundated with ads, suggestions and utter crap that it takes all the fun out of it. Like battling a huge crab for the tiniest piece of meat. It’s so disappointing that it decided to cater to the lowest hanging fruit. Zergnet? Your better than that.
2019 version is all ads
by Hattiehein on 2019/12/11 14:59
I used to use IMDb to track my viewing, find showtimes, etc. Now I have to click through tons of Amazon Prime ads & other junk.
Keeps getting worse
by iehxblwiidbnskwiehbzbxjejd on 2019/12/11 14:27
Keeps getting harder and harder to use. I just want to find movie listings and show times. Now harder than ever. They keep pushing to create an account and log in. Yet they don’t even offer Sign In With Apple. No thanks.
Search!!! Ughh!!!!
by deedlit999 on 2019/12/11 13:57
Please please PLEASE move the search box back up to the top. I legit now avoid this app when I used to love!
New update is annoying
by Gnocca2000 on 2019/12/11 13:26
I, like most users use this app to search for movies and look up who the actors are in those movies... it’s incredibly annoying that you have to click the search button not only twice but at the bottom of the screen then click a third time to be able to type in the actual search bar... why on earth wouldn’t there be a permanent search bar when this is the main reason people use IMBD? change it back and fire whatever millennial thought this was a good idea. I also miss the new movie previews that were right underneath the search bar and frequently would click on them (although the previews NEVER WORKED for me, and so I had to go to YouTube to watch a preview)
A Big Step Backward
by Deca Man on 2019/12/11 11:39
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.
Great app

Where are the cast pics on the right?
by Beckaroo52 on 2019/12/11 03:11
I hate these changes! I liked the large cast pics on the right scroll. They were large enough to compare to the faces on screen when I am trying to figure out who is who. Everything before was easy to use, and easy to look at. IF your redesign was to get us to read ads and click on links, you will have failed, because I will not be using it. This is the second of my favorite apps to Change its GUI for no good reason. What is going on?
New layout is not an improvement
by Tricky23 on 2019/12/11 02:07
I am longtime user of IMDb. I’ve loved this app since before it was an app and was simply a website. Please listen to the reviews and simplify the navigation of the app. Tapping at the bottom of the screen to search, when it simply brings the search bar right up to the top after is just poor design. The search bar should go back to the top of the screen.
Hate the new app
by Jasch21 on 2019/12/11 01:53
Dislike everything about the new app. Put the search at the top. It’s a shame you’re just try to monetize everything now.
Forced to watch ads
by Kelltroy on 2019/12/11 01:48
This was by far the best app to watch trailers until now. Now you are forced to watch ads before every single trailer. Not worth the time. I’m done.
Hate Dark Background
by YUCare on 2019/12/11 00:41
This app WAS great. The whole screen is much harder to find your way around. Don't upgrade! You'll regret it. Please bring back the easier interface. Please put the search option back where it was! You now have to click 2 - 3 times to search. Counterproductive change. Hate it.

Blatant and Feature Intrusive Advertising
by Steel Drums on 2019/12/10 17:22
What’s up with the latest rev or in the last couple weeks with advertising at the top of -and even in the middle of- the first screens on each tab or on show/movie detail pages?! This is disruptive and annoying! If this is the first impression you want to give - that IMDb is financially poor - or greedy - and has to resort to these kind of user-unfriendly tactics - then your core purpose is starting to crumble.
New here.

Unusable Thanks to Latest Update
by Redheadeditalian on 2019/12/10 05:24
I have used and loved IMDb from the time it was internet only to now (Dec 2019). Worst update ever. Can’t find anything due to all the ads. In fact, cannot tell difference between ads and articles and categories. Who puts the search function at the bottom of a screen? I give up. Wish I could reverse an update. <delete app>

Why change something that we liked. The new design encourage me to not use the app.
Terrible update!
by gorenrocks on 2019/12/10 03:55
Long time users here. Have you ever heard the expression ‘Don’t fix it if ain’t broke’ ? Well this update broke the app. The GUI is awful. Please change it back. I don’t know if there’s an app comparable to IMBD before this update, if there is, I’ll find it.
Bring back search bar to front page
by Glamdrach on 2019/12/10 02:21
I like the app, but why did you move the search function so I have to click 2-3 times before I can search. Isn't the purpose of a database to primarily be searchable? Please put the search function on the main page.
App has gotten worse over the years
by Scarter3689 on 2019/12/09 23:35
My number one used app. It’s gotten worse and worse. Every time I want to watch a trailer it just goes black or I have to watch 4 adds. The new search function is junk. Go back to basics
First time user, disappointed
by Yaman kalaji on 2019/12/09 23:03
Technically: -Slow, a lot of loadings, small buttons in some places, doesn’t feel like an iOS app, seems more like a browser.. Usage: -Needs to add season for watch later (i.e. I want to watch a specific season). -Watch List needs to be on watched/to be watched basis, I want to see what I have watched before. Update: Please stop ask me to turn on notifications!

by DaylilyFan on 2019/12/09 21:19
Moving the search field from the top to the bottom of the screen and now having to tap search to access the search field is really inconvenient. I’m not happy with the new placement of the episode guide, either.

Hate the new UI
by AndyBiznane on 2019/12/09 17:31
Restore the search bar to the top of home page and restore the “clear all” search history button. IMDB is my go to research tool while watching movies, tv, YouTube, etc. If I see something I want to know more about I *search* IMDB. Why add extra steps? I’ve seen a recent trend in UI/UX of adding extra needless steps (I’m looking at you Apple). Guess IMDB attended the same school of bad design.
Very disappointed
by Terry2002 on 2019/12/09 07:13
I’ve enjoyed the app almost daily, but this latest update makes you have to click at the bottom to open the search function (which I use all the time!). It seems this new design is simply to make room for more and larger ads. Really sorry I updated. Can you tell me how to go back to the previous version?
New design destroys your browsing history
by Cuzimadork on 2019/12/09 06:56
Every time you perform a new search, it resets the browsing history. Sure, you can go to “You” and scroll down to “Recently Viewed” but in the old app you could just swipe right/back and view your entire history per that session.
Terrible Redesign
by Josh Skaff on 2019/12/09 05:54
The new design is terrible. Before searching was just one tap in the search bar, now you have to tap the search tab, then tap again in the search bar on the bottom. Not to mention, that when I scroll through the actors, I seem to accidentally tap on the small heart icon on some random actor, adding them to a “favorite people” list. If that was an option before I didn’t notice it, but it sure is annoying. This went to one of my favorite apps to something I want to use less, as Wikipedia seems more user friendly now.
We all need a movie like this one
by chicagofeedback on 2019/12/09 04:12
In this era of political strife and division, we all need a movie like this. Being reminded how to deal with our feelings and rally connect one-on-one as people might go a long way to helping us heal as a country. The story is inspired by a journalist who wrote a story for “Esquire” magazine about Mr. Rogers, and in doing so helped to heal himself, reunite his family, and improve his chances of being a good father to his newborn son. Tom Hanks gives an award-worthy performance as Mr. Rogers, as does Chris Cooper who plays his estranged father.
Poor design decisions
by emmarkllib on 2019/12/09 02:54
The new UI completely disregards UX. Go back to design school—you abandoned an industry standard hamburger menu to switch to bottom page nav and it is obnoxious.
Love the app but hate the recent changes
by AMCDTC on 2019/12/09 02:46
I love IMDB but hate the recent changes. It’s very annoying to have to click search at the bottom then have to move to the top to type what I want to search.
What happened?
by zillyzil123 on 2019/12/09 02:07
This used to be my favorite go-to app. for entertainment info. Now it’s so bad I don’t even want to use it. If this is your ploy to get me to subscribe to something it’s a major fail.
Bad design
by mbumb on 2019/12/08 22:52
Still hate that the search bar is gone and I have to go to a dedicated search page (and then click on something else before finally being able to search) rather than just at the top of the screen. Also, the Share button is gone, replaced by a menu with other junk. Whoever was in charge of this redesign needs to find work in a different field.
A once great app now ruined
by Kenper222 on 2019/12/08 20:55
Too many ads. No longer worth the effort. This is even worse that Flixster. I feel I am forced to uninstall. I will reinstall if and when you dispose of the full screen ads. Until then goodbye IMDB.
My Go To Source

For 20+ years IMDB has always been my go to source for Internet Movie Reference at a glance. Thank you IMDB! Keep it up!
Great app
by BlueRoseCrow on 2019/12/08 19:14
When the update was released, I got very jazzes up because I couldn’t find the search feature. That was my bad, as if I would have taken a second to actually look instead of getting all rages out, I would have seen that they just moved it to the bottom instead of the top. The new design also makes it easier to go to the home screen. It is a solid app. Though, I do still wish that there was a message board. Yeah, there was some toxic behavior on the message board, but also a lot of really good conversations.
Search should be the focus
by crplotne on 2019/12/08 17:28
The recent update to app navigation (Nov 2019) is terrible. Search is the only reason I go to IMDB. The “home” tab is useless. Search should be front and center and easy to use. Currently I have to click on the search button and then hunt for the text entry box at the bottom of the screen. This is a bad update. Put search back to front and center on the first screen that opens when the app opens.
Battery Drain
by Jmoneydog on 2019/12/08 17:12
The newest version drained my battery 20% in 5 minutes. I can’t use this anymore.
No split view support, no state
by MichaelNordmeyer on 2019/12/08 15:28
Doesn’t support split view and reloads the home screen after a couple of minutes so I lose the movie I was looking at before. Overall quite an annoying app.

Among my most used apps and websites ever.
by hompsar on 2019/12/08 05:40
Absolutely love IMDB. Both the website and the app. Use it numerous times a week. Five stars all the way! There is one little gripe I have which has to do with the search function. For some reason they have moved the text box to the bottom. Call me old fashioned but it belongs on top. Throws me off every single time. If that could be changed back to being on top that would sure be appreciated. Otherwise, great app. Love IMDB.
Love this app

Great for Movie Lovers!
by Cliffwert on 2019/12/08 05:15
This is a great app for any movie lover, the amount of information etc is unparalleled anywhere. The watchlist is great, and the app is smooth and easy to navigate. My one small, albeit important critique would be the rating system. I REALLY REALLY WISH IT WAS A BIT MORE DETAILED, instead of a simple 1-10. IT WOULD BE PERFECT IF IT WAS 2 digit 1-10, or 1-100. Nobody cares about my movie ratings but I’d love to be able to differentiate between something I think is say a 7.1/10 than something thats 7.9/10. Lets make that happen IMDB!!!
Where did the FAQ for each movie go?
by Rater1234 on 2019/12/08 05:14
Trying to follow any link to a movie FAQ opens the app -- and I have not been able to find where they hid the FAQs after the new update. The new update intersperses a lot of ads and content totally unrelated to the movie or show you looked up which makes it really difficult to use. Sigh. Guess it's time to delete the app and go back to using the website. Or maybe using another service. Too bad! Deleted.
Watchlist is gone.
by AngreeCat on 2019/12/08 03:51
Where the f*** did watchlist go? After the last update my saved watchlist is all gone.

Latest update
by Leia522 on 2019/12/07 22:52
I’m not sure why the platform/look was changed, it’s not bad, it’s just weird where the search bar was placed. P.S it’s very laggy and kinda glitchy. Please fix that
Search not working (and app crashing)
by brandon_nirvana on 2019/12/07 22:04
The new search bar on the second page does not work in the iPhone app. When I click “search” it just takes it right back to the first home page. Then I have to go to the second page again for the search bar, type what I want in again and sometimes it shuts down all together. ...May I suggest putting the search bar back on the first/home page again and above everything as it was before the update? It was so easy to scroll and type rather than to click a few times and reopen after a crash. I kind of wonder why it was changed in the first place...
Massive usability loss
by Daryl Zero on 2019/12/07 21:00
The new interface that removes the persistent search field is an unbelievably massive regression in the usability of the app. Not only does it break a decade of expectations, it forces the user to go to both extremes of the screen as you tap a button at the BOTTOM of the screen to get the search field, and then you have to tap on the field at the TOP of the screen to place the cursor and bring up the keyboard. Did I not hit a button to perform a search? Why do I have to perform another action to actually do the search? This is something that users do ALL THE TIME in this app! I can’t understand how this went out the door.
Let The mosaic design Rest In Peace
by Some honest reviewer on 2019/12/07 19:34
Last update with changing the interface and navigation icons is too much change in one serving! Specially the search icon with very out of date 2 time tap to activate the keyboard!! At least if the change was inevitable, you could have saved the search bar at top for faster search. Now I’m writing this review (As I seldom do for any app) because I think IMDb is the largest and most useful database of movies out there and I have been with them from early days of a simple website till now and hope you guys fix this soon. Thanks. Also the drop down easy to access menu is replaced by an out of date mosaic design! The mosaic design died with windows phone, let it Rest In Peace!

Newest “redesign” is horrible
by BistroEngine on 2019/12/07 07:42
I rarely bother to leave reviews but this most recent update has compelled me to. It’s absolutely terrible. Please put the search bar back on the TOP of the home page.
What did you do to IMDB. Looks terrible and not usable. Bye-Bye until you fix it.

Terrible update. Too bad won’t use it any more.
No Need To Fix What Isn’t Broke
by SoozEmm on 2019/12/07 03:11
I use the app daily, BUT, I think the Search update was unsuccessful. To “simplify” the search process you took away the Search Box at the top and put the Search Magnifying Glass at the bottom with a message that it would “simplify” the search process, but all you did was add a step to the process because now I have to click on the Magnifying Glass at the bottom to make the Search Box show up again at the top. Adding a step to get to what already existed is complicating the process not simplifying it. Other than that, love the app.

Search on iPad - hidden, takes two taps to use it!!!
by SuperShoeDiva on 2019/12/07 02:00
Why do I use IMDB? I use it to SEARCH for information about movies. So why does it take two taps to be able to search for anything? And it is every single search! This makes it impossible to follow the rabbit hole! And no one at IMDB is paying attention to the reviewers! They are just commenting to restart the app which doesn’t fix this bad design!!! Cannot search for episode names!
Older version is better
by Tysearch on 2019/12/07 00:52
The older version has a better search interface. Please remember most people use this app for searching a title or an actor and at the same time people may browse the news on the page. The search field should be on the front page!
New interface is garbage
by Ryhanon on 2019/12/07 00:10
The new interface is terrible. Searching now requires you to tap a search button, then tap inside the search field to actually search (I just tapped the button, why do I need to tap inside the field as well? It should be pretty clear I want to search), then on the iPhone the search field inexplicably starts on the bottom of the screen and jumps to the top of the screen (where it *almost* changes back to the old interface) causing me to have to redirect my attention from bottom to top back to bottom as I search for things. This is easily one of the worst app redesigns I have ever seen - whoever came up with this UX needs to go back to school because they do not understand how to build a functional and pleasant UX. Just awful.

I don’t like how you can’t watch movies on this app. You have to go on amazon or whatever to just do it.

Amazing app till the latest version
by Nebulla Stark on 2019/12/06 22:44
It’s an amazing app but lately the last version of the app wasn’t as good as before, i mean i used to have an easy access to my watchlist but now it’s little hard. Anyway it’s still my favorite app but i wish you could restore the old version.
Put the search bar back on the home screen!
by gdubh on 2019/12/06 22:06
This is literally the main reason any of us open this app. To look something up. Put the search bar back on the home screen!
Terrible Update
by Newnexus6 on 2019/12/06 19:48
The latest update which eliminated the search bar at the top of the page was unnecessary, inane and creates an unwieldy app. Now, instead of just typing into the search bar I must first tap the search icon to get to the search bar. An extra step for those of us who are avid movie watchers and use the app dozens of times daily makes absolutely no sense. Why not add an advanced search ability like what’s available on the web page if you want to make the app better? I’ve used IMDb for nearly 2 decades and it just seems to be getting worse instead of better.
Why make Search harder to get to?
by M A 4 on 2019/12/06 19:11
The search function is the entire reason to use this app. Now they’ve made it harder to get to.
Not a fan of the redesign
by ZachSny on 2019/12/06 18:48
Thought I’d try and give it some time, but it just doesn’t seem to navigate well.
UX is trash.
by iTunesForHome on 2019/12/06 18:42
The UX is horrid thanks to the new UI. Placing the search icon at the bottom of the screen and now having to go the top of the screen to input search queries is absolutely aggravating.
Please
by 7rmason7 on 2019/12/06 18:41
Please bring back the upper fixed menu (search bar) 🥺
Very Useful & Entertaining
by Syr Spark on 2019/12/06 16:22
Whenever I need to get information on an entertainer or background on on a production, I start here. I have been using this website for years, and now with the app it is even more convenient. Even the least known movies you can find them at your fingertips. I can’t begin to imagine what goes into gathering the research and the design of your work.There must be a lot of dedicated people who put all of this information in one place. Thank you for all the work that you put into this app and website.
New update super glitchy
by Formerbarista on 2019/12/06 16:21
The update makes the app run like my phone is from 2008
New version
by Lying Nickname on 2019/12/06 15:05
I don’t get it. IMDb has always been a great way to find out details about shows/movies. New search for iPad is in a dumb location at the bottom. Search pulls up all sorts of obsolete information. Anyway to go back to an earlier version? Sure wish I’d never updated. But maybe there is another such database out there....

Love this app. Use it almost daily
Terrible update!

Been using IMDB for years, but this update is abysmal! Zero stars if I could
REDESIGN RUINS APP
by peepaw815 on 2019/12/06 06:46
I love imbd. I use it so often and it’s a great resource. The recent redesign of the UI is garbage. It’s insane someone gave the greenlight to approve the redesign. The issue here is the SEARCH BAR. It’s been moved to the tab at the bottom of the screen AND THEN you have to tap the search bar at the top. They have essentially added a step to search the name of the actor in an episode, etc. Clicking the bottom and then top of a large phone one handed is now nearly impossible. CHANGE THE SEARCH BAR BACK TO THE ORIGINAL AND FIRE WHOEVER CAME UP WITH THE IDEA TO MOVE THE SPACEBAR This isn’t rock science here, folks 🙄
I love the app...
by KelseyNova on 2017/10/05 11:10
Edit: Thanks to the devs for responding to the issue. It's either stopped or you fixed it! I love the app! It's helpful and I use it a lot! **previous review** Recently there has been an invisible ad that pops up when I search for something. I don't have a problem with ads if it keeps the app free, my issue is that I can't click on anything while it's there. Example: I open the app and search for a title, on the search page an empty see-through box appears. If you try to click on something behind/within the box it goes to a video ad. There's no other way around it. I'm not sure if it's on purpose - again I don't mind ads to keep the app free - but it's a little intrusive in that I can't get around it. If it is on purpose, like I need to watch it before continuing, then the feature needs a tune up. The only way to get around it is to close the app entirely and go back in and start over. Otherwise I love the app, use it a lot, it's very helpful and in my opinion the app is even better than the actual website.
Unfortunate
by H16H_C0MM4ND3R on 2018/03/08 02:48
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.)
The BEST APP EVER!
by Saftymn on 2019/07/05 00:57
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
Fantastic app to track movies and shows & view ratings
by multiple uses on 2019/10/21 01:46
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!
Great, Useful App
by Discoball34526 on 2017/10/16 14:17
I use IMDb all the time after I watch a movie, TV episode, etc. and I love it. It's perfect for anything entertainment related and I recommend this app to any movie lovers. In order to keep track of every movie and show I have seen, I add them to my watchlist, and after viewing a movie, I always rate it and occasionally write a review. Overall this is a great app. 5/5 Stars Edit: I am still giving 5/5 stars for this app, but there has been even more stuffing of votes lately with regards to 1* ratings on Breaking Bad and The Walking Dead especially. Over the past few months, most episodes of TWD have fell around .2-.3 stars each, which is ridiculous considering the fact that older episodes should not be decreasing in ratings this much. Meanwhile, episodes of the overrated Game of Thrones are given 10’s every episode by so many fake accounts. This is hurting the validity of IMDb ratings and I hope that they can do something about these fake votes.
The best entertainment app!
by Alaskared49 on 2018/10/12 23:41
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…
by Summers03 on 2018/02/12 08:40
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.
Ratings are ridiculous
by Tannner17! on 2017/09/24 03:19
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.
Commercials with Commercials?
by Browncoat Cowboy on 2019/09/19 01:38
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
by Rajona on 2017/12/21 16:07
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.
Unable to add to my WatchList...?
by BlondeEnigma on 2019/08/23 23:05
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... ☹️😥🤯🥵
Attention grabber from the very first episode!
by Jjjeeeennnn on 2019/08/08 17:54
I was looking for something to watch. I felt like I had already watched every series worth watching from the 80’s, 90’s through today. I saw the previews for this and thought it looked rather interesting but I was still Leary so I waited and tried to start a few other shows with no luck catching my attention. I decided I would give it a chance. Well, it’s a new day and the season is about over! Since it’s new, there is only 1 season 🥺. I hope so much they keep making season after season after season!! It’s not one of those cheesy SYFY shows either. It is very realistic to what the future will probably be like in another 50 to 100 years (like FTL shuttles etc.). To wrap this up with a short summary, terrific show! One to definitely recommend! Enjoy!!
Good movie if you are cognitively equipped
by Skyking808 on 2019/05/28 01:27
From a person who worked with the medical, extended care, sports medicine and psychiatric care for more than 40 years; I clearly understand the point of this film and what it tries to help those who are the most resistant (yet ignorant) to life maintenance understand clearly. We in the United States have dealt with, in our youth of being a nation, just the maintenance of our lives with the medical and pharmaceutical industries supplying a fix to our shortcomings in the way we lead our lives. The convenience, and just a short symptom to ask for what is more of a larger lifestyle problem. (The above statement is outside of the scope of disease such as cancer and other life-threatening maladies which are beyond ‘first person human control’) This film is positioned to try to help you overcome acceptiong just symptom like fixes and to hopefully get you to understand and address what drives your body as you age and what you can do to make sure that you may better plan the length of your life, the quality of your life; while understanding what drives your system and what things you need to do in terms of hormone therapy, as you age, which will assist you a more productive, more enjoyable existence leading towards the end of your life.
Please help me so that I can watch movies on IMBD!!!
by rap500 on 2019/06/09 19:14
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!
55 Steps
by gloria's sister on 2018/10/26 18:59
What a wonderful surprise to see in the movie “55 Steps” such a sensitively written and well acted movie of events I remember so well. During the time period portrayed in the movie which starts in the adult psych unit at Saint Mary’s Hospital in San Francisco, I worked in another psych program and a friend of mine was a psych tech at St Mary’s. Discussions centered around the use of Merrill and other psychotropic medications were common place as we observed the damaging Impact on patients noting it not being unusual for the treatment being worse than the disease. The writing is elegant and sensitive and the acting spot on. 55 Steps finds moments of humor juxtaposed to the agony of mental illness, terror and the loss of control over ones body and ones life. And while the subject matter is as serious as it can be it is a lovingly craft movie and the best film I have seen in years.
I cried thru half of the film
by footballer009 on 2018/11/14 06:40
This is an amazing film that is moving, informative, painful, and beautiful at the same time. I watched “and they came for us” with my 13yr old daughter and I cried thru half of the film. I’m a 4th generation Hawaiian Japanese and my grandmother turned 98 on Sunday. She has never spoken a word about her imprisonment during the war. My parents were both given western names and not taught to speak, read or write in Japanese. My uncles and aunties lost their farms, homes, and dignity in Oahu, the big island, and Southern California and I’m outraged. My uncles bled in the war for the USA fighting in the pacific while their parents were imprisoned. This can never happen again. I’m furious about the treatment of Muslims blacks, and native Americans today. This normalization of hate speech, and characterizing whole groups of people is sickening.
Gone down hill
by BallouBear on 2017/09/15 19:57
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!!!
thank you and please
by Swmnupsrtm on 2019/11/09 15:46
We used to have a giant book of movies with ratings now IMDB is all that and more. This app is a wonderful resource of all things movies as well as an outlet for fans. Thank you. My only complaint is the inability save a written review to work on later or at the least automatically save my draft. I have lost some of my best written reviews because my phone rang or because I wanted to look up a word . Technically my phone should save the page or I could remember to write elsewhere and then cut an paste my reviews ,but that's a a repeated fail on my part. This app could have it all. A link or even option to watch some of the more obscure films would make it complete. Please consider an auto-save on drafts option , it would be so appreciated.
Recent disappointment
by RascalGirl on 2018/03/07 05:53
Before I just re installed it on my phone I would have given it 5 stars. Now??? I'm very sorry to knock my rating down to a 3. Just the other day, I deleted a bunch of apps because I'm running out of memory on my iPhone. I really missed IMBD! So tonight I uploaded it again. It couldn't look more different. It looks like a full web page instead of what most apps look like; a manageable size and construction for an iPhone. (I have a decent sized screen, too. It's an iPhone 6s+.) The words are too small for me to see and I'm unable to view the whole page at once and must move it around in order to see only part of the page at a time. I sure hope you have a suggestion for me. I loved looking and searching and learning about movies, tv shows and celebrities. Now I doubt I can use it. Is there any way you can revert this to the previous set up?
Only the Best thing Ever
by Soybean87 on 2018/11/24 19:50
I’ve been using IMDb since before smart phones were popular. It’s the most inclusive cache of movie knowledge on the planet. The amount of time I end up spending on this website/app is ridiculous because I just get sucked in! You look up a movie to see who was in it, then you start looking at all the other stuff Willam Dafoe is in, next thing you know you are reading trivia facts about Stanley Kubrick. It’s a rabbit hole but the best kind! Any dispute you have with your friends about what year a movie was or who the director was, will be instantly solved by a quick IMDb search. I don’t think this service even needs to be reviewed since it should be apparent to everyone how useful it is! Truly a ground breaking database! Great job guys!
App is Good but needs improvements
by Addison J on 2017/12/15 13:45
I’m a lifelong IMDB fan, I have found myself going to this site almost everyday for the past near 10 years. That won’t change. The app is good and I do expect it to get better. I did have a recommendation, something that I find personally annoying. When watching trailers, it is hard to capture the time ticker with finger to rewind or fast forward, and also you have the screen set up to swipe to the next trailer and what is annoying is that if we don’t catch the ticker then it just swipes to the next trailer. I find myself having to go back repeatedly, wait for it to load then try to go back to where I was and it’s just a big hassle because the same thing happens over and over. I would recommend getting rid of the easy swipe to next trailer or at least give us an option to turn it off.
Useful and Fun
by ramzyroo on 2019/01/01 21:36
This is a great app for anyone like me who always needs to keep track of what they need to watch or to review. I always have tons of films that my friends and family recommended to me, so I always go on IMDb to add whatever films or TV shows they said I should watch to my watchlist. I also rate whatever I watch on a 1-10 rating scale so I can keep track of what I’ve seen. Super useful, it keeps me organized very easily. Other people review Films and TV on the app too. so if i’m not sure if i want to watch something or not, i’ll go and see what other people think about it. All in all, this is a perfect app for any film buff out there to talk about films with other people, and to keep track of films and TV you need to see.
I Miss the Forums
by Recynd on 2018/10/20 22:25
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)
Thanks IMDb employees!!!!!
by Informative Dude on 2019/06/18 17:14
I wrote a review for IMDb before, but I must write another because they deserve it. ImBD is the best at giving you everything that relates to movies. I do have a few recommendations though. IMDb, you should add a feature that allows us to select movies that we have not seen, but would like to see, and place them into a “Would like to Watch List”. Then, when we watch the movies that our friends want us to watch so badly, we can put it into our watch list!! Also, would you be able to add what production company made each film? I know it’ll take a while, it it would very much help those of us who like to keep up with that! Thank you for your hard work, and keep it up!!!
IMDb is the best!
by Beagle the Boomer on 2017/09/28 18:39
IMDb is the best app to find information about anything relating to movies or television. You can find everything you’d ever want to know about any movie, any film short ever made (even the most obscure) or any tv series from the past or present. Info about any tv or film personality you could think of. There’s no limit on what you can find on the IMDb and you can use it on your desktop, tablet or smartphone. The only thing I can think of that they could add would be to have all the movie trailers and photos grouped together in one place so you could search for them - by year, decade, genre, star or just at random - so you could binge on them and discover the great treasures if the Hollywood dream factory.
Diamond in the Rough
by Royal Cherokee on 2019/10/06 02:58
This app, for me, is a diamond in the rough. By my standards, we live in a world where it seems as though for every app by which you are to learn and/or be cultured, there are 5 to do the very opposite. I love being able to look up movies and tv shows from my childhood to see who all took park in its creation. It’s is also fun being able to see some of my friends be listed - even friends I’ve lost. I’m only 30, but I’ve been blessed to just be a man from Texas who knows famous people. It makes their movies more fun, and their posted accomplishments is extremely fun for me! It gives me great pride in my friends. This site is well-run, and I proudly give you 5 stars. Please continue to be the diamond in the rough!
Movie bomb
by Fun Ni Guy on 2019/11/01 22:54
Have you played movie bomb? IMDB makes this game possible. Just get some friends to play. The first person says a movie, the next person has to name an actor in that movie, the next has to name a different movie that actor is in, the next person has to name a different actor in the last movie mentioned etc. When someone is finally stumped they say “movie bomb” of the last person cannot name another actor or movie, depending on what the last person said, they get a strike. You can determine how many strikes it takes to get out, we usually play three. This is an addictive game! IMDB makes it possible to fact check if you think someone is fibbing, if they are, they get a strike. Have fun!
Dead body
by Dizznmo on 2017/12/06 03:12
I would like to write a review for that movie but not sure if that’s what I’m doing as I seem to have to run through hoops to simply write a review on IMBD. You can’t just go to the bottom of the movie to write it, you have to go to the bottom on a certain page that I can’t seem to find every time I actually want to put my two cents in. Really freaking annoying as I can never remember how to do this! If this is an actual review of the movie I just watched I must say, it was awesome! It was bad as in not a great movie but it brought me back to the old slasher flicks like HappyBirthday to me in that we don’t know the killer, obvious maybe but it while you know it’s obvious that throws you off as you make yourself keep watching! I knew from the start but by the end I kinda forgot about him, maybe the wine, lol but brought me back to my teenage years in the 80’s and by the end I was like, oh my god, I knew it but still I totally forgot about him! Good job
This app so cool but some minor tweaks need to be done
by Campbell Howell on 2019/07/28 15:40
Let me just say this so I can get this off my chest this app is so cool true ratings all of that stuff. But there is something for me that I don’t like. 1. When people are writing reviews they don’t understand the show and they need explaining or they are asking a question about the show. But we can’t reply so if someone is misunderstood about something in the show or someone is asking questions then how can we fix. So that was the most important. Now on the last one. 2. The parents guide there are movies or shows that show what explicit stuff happened in the movie or show but there are some as if they don’t show anything. So I’m a kid so nudity or Quentin Tarantino violence. My parents are ok with violence and definitely swearing but when it comes to gross violence or nudity they say no. So In these movies that show anything in the parents guide when it’s pg-13 or R I’m not able to watch because it might have nudity or mega violence. Overall this app is really great especially when you try to find showtimes on movies it as easy as pie. Definitely suggest you to get it.

Relative Race
by Ruby girl 48 on 2019/05/26 20:22
BYU TV provides a large number of excellent programs that are family Friends and teach some important lessons about life from various perspectives. There is no doubt that the best produced program is Relative Race. The rules change for season to season and that is understandable; the strive to keep the competition aspect even. The search for and discovery of family is by far the most valuable as you get to see so much raw emotion and joy from the contestants and their new family members. Most of the challenges are fun to watch and it is sad when various teams run into construction zones and lose valuable time. So many viewers fell in love with the twins (Team Black) but when the left the show there was still so much to draw and hold a viewers interest. Certainly some teams are able to have more exciting activities than others; but that is not that meaningful to me. The joy I feel is when mysteries and dead ends are resolved. That is truly inspiring. If I had my preference there would three seasons each year! Thank you to all involved in the production of the outstanding show.
Great app — some suggestions
by stovebuscemi on 2018/05/05 03:09
Love this app! does exactly what I need it to and I especially appreciate the Birthday Widget for apple devices. One suggestion would be to have a “Currently Watching” option like how you have a “Watchlist” and “Ratings” list. Id find this helpful specifically for mini series and television shows— because one or two seasons in I’m not ready to give it a rating but I also don’t want to lose it if I’m taking a break. I feel this option could also be helpful for tv show/movie statistics for imdbPRO users to keep an eye on how many are “currently watching” their content instead of just seeing who has rated it. Just some suggestions— great app/website!
STILL HAS A MAJOR PROBLEM
by Control45 on 2019/02/03 16:00
You developers still need to solve the problem with emails. No matter what I do I can’t turn them off. I have tried EVERYTHING!!! I even signed out and signed back in using a different email address BUT your application keeps finding all my email addresses and filling my inbox with USELESS email. FIX THIS!!!! Please don’t tell me to change my preferences because I have already done that and even with them all turned OFF it continues to stuff all my email inboxes with email. I enjoy your application but this problem is a major frustration. Why can’t you just fix this? This is NOT the first time I have tried to get a reasonable response. DO SOMETHING!!!!
APP CRASHES
by JoeVarughese19 on 2019/11/19 13:59
I love this app but only within the last month it has been crashing consistently on my iPhone X. My phone is only 2 years old and doesn’t have similar trouble/problems with any other applications. The problem only arises when I use the IMDb app too long doing deeper searches of movies and TV shows. For example, I would search a movie and then click on the director’s name and then see what else he/she has made. Then continuously go on further from there looking up other people until the app can’t process all the info and starts to slow down, lag and heat up my phone. The brightness on my screen increases along with a message popping up saying “Zoom Enabled”. I pray that I am NOT the only person with this problem. I love movies and tv shows, so IMDb is my app to go to.
Not enough stars to rate this app
by Give it a try 15 on 2017/12/31 00:22
The best app and most used app on my phone. I use it on a daily basis. When I talk to people who watch movies and TV like I do and they don't have or in a few cases have never heard of IMDB, I am shocked. It answers so many questions and solves so many arguments. As I open up IMDB to look at one thing, whether it be an actor, actress, movie, or TV show, I frequently find myself exploring other people or entertainment that wasn't my initial focus. The different platforms, iPhone vs iPad vs Mac are all so different. On the road I always use my iPhone, but when sitting in front of TV my iPad is open and on my lap It's all good though. If you don't have IMDB, you should.
App just stops working frequently
by Doufbag on 2018/09/05 19:20
I use IMDB a lot, maybe more than the average user. It’s an extremely helpful tool for following favorite performers’ work... and settling arguments, from time to time. It’s incredibly comprehensive, and though the ratings are skewed by shills/bots more often now than in the past, they’re still helpful. My problem is that the app will just stop loading after using for a few to several minutes. It can’t be just me. This has persisted across a couple to a few iPhones, and uninstalling/reinstalling doesn’t seem to help. I have to close the app, wait a while, open it back up, sometimes repeating the process several times in one day. I don’t know why this is, I’m not a super heavy user. Aside from the loading issue, it’s a good app.
Love the app and use it almost daily
by Changalicious on 2019/09/28 19:03
Love this app and use it almost daily. It’s super helpful to see the series order, show names and to be able to search for guest actors on specific episodes Feature request: please add a toggle feature or an option to look at the animated character pictures for animated movies and shows. It would be so helpful to us parents who are forced to suffer through all our kids movies and shows and want to search for an actor but aren’t paying close enough attention to get the names of the characters. Or when our kids say “what’s that characters name” and I have no idea because I wasn’t paying attention. PLEASE!
Nov 2019 overhaul...
by JKraley on 2019/11/24 11:16
...really is a terrible mess. I'm completely baffled by the incessant need to conform to "tiles", "blocks", "grids", etc. I'm keeping track and rating episodes of shows along with move, (previously) relying heavily on the simple search (history) which this newly reformed UI has complicated to the point of almost obliteration and warranted frustration. I just want the search option to be the way it always had been until late Nov 2019. I actually roll my eyes and groan when trying to quickly find my search history of shows which i episodicly rate, but I'm hit with complication and unnecessary rules, like a Windows 8 nightmare of an app that is now unexpectedly closer to "a trite made flesh". That was a quote from one of my favorite movies and I'll be damned if I can find that title alone as easily as I used to for 7 years... Change it back for the love of Ebert and all that, well, sadly used to make sense!
Truly a Database for entertainment
by Jillgee on 2018/06/19 03:31
IMDB is my Go To source for any question about movies, tv shows and stars. I have yet to find a question that I could not find the answer to on this App. Its great to have open when watching a show or movie bc it shows the cast and then when you click on each cast member, it shows everything that person has been in leading to a detailed look at each of those shows - and so it goes, ad infinitude from what I can tell. Last nite Someone looked familiar on Shades of Blue- went there and saw it was Jack from Revenge. No more frustrating brain - wracking! It does so much more, but I love it for looking up casts and ratings.
I am I destined to live with disappointments?
by I hate to be a bother but... on 2019/09/28 04:22
Once again I am very disappointed in this app. I have tried on numerous occasions to watch the TV show titled “Midsomer Murders”. This app is a joke. Every single time I have tried to watch an episode of this series a little notice appears on my screen after about 2/3 of the episode saying that “ we are so sorry but we have encountered a problem, please try again” I would have expected a company as large as you are to be able to put out a product that works. I have had to load and then get rid of this app about 10 times in two weeks because you are unable to deliver an episode without an issue. I am very puzzled about this because from what I understand this app has been available for quite a while and you still haven’t fixed it. Be happy you received one star because if it was possible I would give you zero stars
A Truly Amazing App (Movie Lover Or Not)
by YoshiTheBeast on 2018/02/24 21:34
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!
Horrible very limited app
by Mbsmollin on 2018/09/07 01:21
Don't get this app! The normal website is way better. All this app does is limit the amount of information you get on the movies you look up, and feed you more adds then you would get on the site. If you look up movies there are no user reviews of movies. They only show you main stream reviews from critics who are getting paid. They are trying to make it look like the movies they list are better then they may actually be, so you can't be discriminating. And I thought one of the main functions of imdb is so normal people can voice their opinions on movies to help others make good choices. Without user input, IMDb is just another version of fandango meant to promote movies for studios regardless of quality. Support user input and control on IMDb and don't get this app unless they fix it. Unless you like extra adds and limited info.
Great
by zombichick000 on 2017/12/02 17:11
I love this app, for informational purposes and also just for fun. My question is, how do we (the registered users) make edits/add to a page on the app? I used to be able to edit here and there, and after a few updates, I can’t seem to find what I’m supposed to click or hold or hover on anymore. Has that functionality been removed? Do I have to go to a desktop site to do this now? I won’t remove a star just because of that, it’s just disheartening. I hope that part of IMDB comes back to the app soon. Other than that, I’ve never had an issue with this app, it works great, and I love the endless info it provides.
Love, but I am not a fan of the most recent update.
by carrieq4 on 2018/03/27 15:50
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.
A Twist on Western Influence
by CDJ2419iPad Air2 on 2019/04/16 21:22
This was a different role for Kate Beckinsale and I found her compelling, along with the rest of the cast. The constant twists and turns in the plot made the story watchable while questioning which shoe was going to drop next. Whistle blowers are at risk in any country, but especially in an area like the Congo where lawlessness is a government specialty. The suspense kept me binge-watching for two days. The story is multi-layered and it makes me appreciate the U.S., because while we are also a “broken country” we still have rule of law in place to protect citizens from outright wholesale mass murder in the streets. Ms. Beckinsale stopped being “Selina” to me and owned Georgia. The rest of the cast was also superb.
Just a few items...
by cMonster7D8 on 2019/07/06 04:15
Movie trivia and info sections are great. Some of the user reviews are either bots or planted by those involved in productions(not that big of a deal). However, parts of the news section itself are very bias and drag down the app. I’m neither a Republican nor a Democrat. I also don’t necessarily like our current commander in chief, but do you have to waste time listing articles with constant wisecracks and/or dumb attacks on the president? I get that IMBD is left leaning, and that attacking the Trumpster is the current cool thing to do, but it gets old after awhile. Some of the articles don’t even concern film or tv for that matter! It would be nice just get a break from all that. The current box office is depressing enough we don’t need help. :)
Ruined the experience
by peacefulmike on 2019/11/22 05:50
Any good app developer knows, user experience is everything. The old app conveniently had everything in a logical place. It took one tap to do searches, and anything you needed was one tap away. Now you have to tap around to try to find things. It is a convoluted mess. It doesn’t even look good. The home tab is completely useless, and forces you to start there. It is just a place to throw ads at you. And the rest of the tabs have no logical rhyme or reason as to why certain things are in it. I’d hate to say whoever designed this really doesn’t deserve the job they have, but I can’t see how anyone will be happy with using this app in this state. I used to spend so much time in it and now I immediately wanted to close it with no interest is opening it back up. I guess the current mission statement for IMDb is: if it ain’t broke, break it.
A Big Step Backward
by Deca Man on 2019/12/11 11:39
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.
Trapped in IMDB, had to kill it
by Paulium42 on 2019/08/29 01:29
I have enjoyed using this app for many purposes. Among them has been looking at trailers, looking up directors and actors (and what a wonderful rabbit hole that is to fall into sometimes!!) and recently the new IMDB content including interviews of people in entertainment. However, I got quite alarmed and frustrated tonight when i was unable to stop a video and get out of the particular section I was in, such as the "More great videos of the week". The iPad became unresponsive and I had to actually double click the home button and terminate the app or select another one to get it to stop. This occurred twice in a row and then I could not replicate. So not sure if this was a glitch in the app or in my iPad. I will keep an eye out.

It’s nice but buffers a lot
by Lilleone on 2019/12/13 06:51
I downloaded the app so I could watch one show in particular and I’ll most likely keep it after I finish the show. My only problem is that I can’t get through an entire episode without it pausing and buffering. This happens several times throughout an episode
Going strong with IMDB and hanging in there.
by nightflight6 on 2019/12/13 04:18
I simply love having to be involved with films and entertainment with this fantastic post. There isn’t one day that I don’t look at IMDb for all the joy it brings me. I perhaps remember those old critics reviews they were off the wall and funny. There new opinions are refreshing. You wonderful people are doing a great job. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays. The very best for New Year 2020.
Previous version vs. new version.

New UI is Really Bad
by Baroda Bulldog on 2019/12/12 22:26
After giving it another week, this new UI is worse than my initial estimate. I don’t mind change, but this new UI adds clicks, forces users to scroll past garbage to get to the tools, and is generally unpleasant to use. It feels like any other poorly designed app out there. It has lost sight of why people use the app in favor of pushing its far less interesting lists and stories. Worse, the 3rd party stories they link to either reload constantly for ads, making things unreadable, or (in the case of The Wrap) require a user account to read the story. I don’t understand linking to a site where the content is not enabled. Used to be good. Now, it’s just a PITA.

Updated version of IMDB
by TimtimeTr on 2019/12/12 05:08
First I want to say I’ve been a supporter of IMDB for over a decade. However this new updated version is an absolute disappointment. The user’s history tab has been eliminated, I lost all the movies I’ve ever searched for. The search bar in any app is always at the top, why did they put it at the bottom? Different isn’t always better. This app is Soooooo bad I’m going to delete it and use Flixster from now on. When the developers pull their head out, I might down load it again.
Worst app ever

New update brings search functions several clicks away
by Pakitt on 2019/12/11 20:50
To search something you now always have to click a couple of times instead of simply accessing the search field on the home page as it was in the old but helpful UI. You cannot even set the search tab as the default one when opening the app. An excellent app for movie lovers with excellent lookup of information, is now focused being more of a promotional tool. Pity.

Sellouts
by Burr the Conqueror on 2019/12/11 16:15
The app (as well as the website) has become so inundated with ads, suggestions and utter crap that it takes all the fun out of it. Like battling a huge crab for the tiniest piece of meat. It’s so disappointing that it decided to cater to the lowest hanging fruit. Zergnet? Your better than that.
2019 version is all ads

New update is annoying
by Gnocca2000 on 2019/12/11 13:26
I, like most users use this app to search for movies and look up who the actors are in those movies... it’s incredibly annoying that you have to click the search button not only twice but at the bottom of the screen then click a third time to be able to type in the actual search bar... why on earth wouldn’t there be a permanent search bar when this is the main reason people use IMBD? change it back and fire whatever millennial thought this was a good idea. I also miss the new movie previews that were right underneath the search bar and frequently would click on them (although the previews NEVER WORKED for me, and so I had to go to YouTube to watch a preview)

Where are the cast pics on the right?
by Beckaroo52 on 2019/12/11 03:11
I hate these changes! I liked the large cast pics on the right scroll. They were large enough to compare to the faces on screen when I am trying to figure out who is who. Everything before was easy to use, and easy to look at. IF your redesign was to get us to read ads and click on links, you will have failed, because I will not be using it. This is the second of my favorite apps to Change its GUI for no good reason. What is going on?
New layout is not an improvement
by Tricky23 on 2019/12/11 02:07
I am longtime user of IMDb. I’ve loved this app since before it was an app and was simply a website. Please listen to the reviews and simplify the navigation of the app. Tapping at the bottom of the screen to search, when it simply brings the search bar right up to the top after is just poor design. The search bar should go back to the top of the screen.
Hate the new app
by Jasch21 on 2019/12/11 01:53
Dislike everything about the new app. Put the search at the top. It’s a shame you’re just try to monetize everything now.
Forced to watch ads

This was by far the best app to watch trailers until now. Now you are forced to watch ads before every single trailer. Not worth the time. I’m done.
Hate Dark Background
by YUCare on 2019/12/11 00:41
This app WAS great. The whole screen is much harder to find your way around. Don't upgrade! You'll regret it. Please bring back the easier interface. Please put the search option back where it was! You now have to click 2 - 3 times to search. Counterproductive change. Hate it.

by Steel Drums on 2019/12/10 17:22
What’s up with the latest rev or in the last couple weeks with advertising at the top of -and even in the middle of- the first screens on each tab or on show/movie detail pages?! This is disruptive and annoying! If this is the first impression you want to give - that IMDb is financially poor - or greedy - and has to resort to these kind of user-unfriendly tactics - then your core purpose is starting to crumble.
New here.
by Gumbo 70427 on 2019/12/10 14:58
I’m new to this app. It’s very straightforward and easy to navigate for this 69 year old. I use it to follow Mr Robot.
Great!
by TexasDeb99 on 2019/12/10 08:19
I do not like the recent changes to the app. It was much easier to use before. If I ever need quick info, it has never let me down. Thank you......
Unusable Thanks to Latest Update
by Redheadeditalian on 2019/12/10 05:24
I have used and loved IMDb from the time it was internet only to now (Dec 2019). Worst update ever. Can’t find anything due to all the ads. In fact, cannot tell difference between ads and articles and categories. Who puts the search function at the bottom of a screen? I give up. Wish I could reverse an update. <delete app>
A MUST have for ANY and EVERY movie/TV fan!!

Annoying UI
by emiliano.sauceda on 2019/12/10 04:40
Why change something that we liked. The new design encourage me to not use the app.
Terrible update!
by gorenrocks on 2019/12/10 03:55
Long time users here. Have you ever heard the expression ‘Don’t fix it if ain’t broke’ ? Well this update broke the app. The GUI is awful. Please change it back. I don’t know if there’s an app comparable to IMBD before this update, if there is, I’ll find it.
Bring back search bar to front page
by Glamdrach on 2019/12/10 02:21
I like the app, but why did you move the search function so I have to click 2-3 times before I can search. Isn't the purpose of a database to primarily be searchable? Please put the search function on the main page.
App has gotten worse over the years
by Scarter3689 on 2019/12/09 23:35
My number one used app. It’s gotten worse and worse. Every time I want to watch a trailer it just goes black or I have to watch 4 adds. The new search function is junk. Go back to basics
First time user, disappointed
by Yaman kalaji on 2019/12/09 23:03
Technically: -Slow, a lot of loadings, small buttons in some places, doesn’t feel like an iOS app, seems more like a browser.. Usage: -Needs to add season for watch later (i.e. I want to watch a specific season). -Watch List needs to be on watched/to be watched basis, I want to see what I have watched before. Update: Please stop ask me to turn on notifications!

Rating was 5 stars before recent updates
by DaylilyFan on 2019/12/09 21:19
Moving the search field from the top to the bottom of the screen and now having to tap search to access the search field is really inconvenient. I’m not happy with the new placement of the episode guide, either.
Weird, but annoying issue
by Dusty_Bananas on 2019/12/09 20:40
This app has never loaded fully unless I am on wifi.
The latest update is horrible. Don’t update!
by SNL fan 55 on 2019/12/09 19:02
The latest update is horrible...there are no functional improvements. The previous version worked quite well. Why fix something that isn’t broken? To justify someone’s high salary?
Hate the new UI
by AndyBiznane on 2019/12/09 17:31
Restore the search bar to the top of home page and restore the “clear all” search history button. IMDB is my go to research tool while watching movies, tv, YouTube, etc. If I see something I want to know more about I *search* IMDB. Why add extra steps? I’ve seen a recent trend in UI/UX of adding extra needless steps (I’m looking at you Apple). Guess IMDB attended the same school of bad design.
Very disappointed
by Terry2002 on 2019/12/09 07:13
I’ve enjoyed the app almost daily, but this latest update makes you have to click at the bottom to open the search function (which I use all the time!). It seems this new design is simply to make room for more and larger ads. Really sorry I updated. Can you tell me how to go back to the previous version?
New design destroys your browsing history
by Cuzimadork on 2019/12/09 06:56
Every time you perform a new search, it resets the browsing history. Sure, you can go to “You” and scroll down to “Recently Viewed” but in the old app you could just swipe right/back and view your entire history per that session.
Terrible Redesign
by Josh Skaff on 2019/12/09 05:54
The new design is terrible. Before searching was just one tap in the search bar, now you have to tap the search tab, then tap again in the search bar on the bottom. Not to mention, that when I scroll through the actors, I seem to accidentally tap on the small heart icon on some random actor, adding them to a “favorite people” list. If that was an option before I didn’t notice it, but it sure is annoying. This went to one of my favorite apps to something I want to use less, as Wikipedia seems more user friendly now.
We all need a movie like this one
by chicagofeedback on 2019/12/09 04:12
In this era of political strife and division, we all need a movie like this. Being reminded how to deal with our feelings and rally connect one-on-one as people might go a long way to helping us heal as a country. The story is inspired by a journalist who wrote a story for “Esquire” magazine about Mr. Rogers, and in doing so helped to heal himself, reunite his family, and improve his chances of being a good father to his newborn son. Tom Hanks gives an award-worthy performance as Mr. Rogers, as does Chris Cooper who plays his estranged father.
Poor design decisions
by emmarkllib on 2019/12/09 02:54
The new UI completely disregards UX. Go back to design school—you abandoned an industry standard hamburger menu to switch to bottom page nav and it is obnoxious.
Love the app but hate the recent changes
by AMCDTC on 2019/12/09 02:46
I love IMDB but hate the recent changes. It’s very annoying to have to click search at the bottom then have to move to the top to type what I want to search.
What happened?
by zillyzil123 on 2019/12/09 02:07
This used to be my favorite go-to app. for entertainment info. Now it’s so bad I don’t even want to use it. If this is your ploy to get me to subscribe to something it’s a major fail.
Bad design
by mbumb on 2019/12/08 22:52
Still hate that the search bar is gone and I have to go to a dedicated search page (and then click on something else before finally being able to search) rather than just at the top of the screen. Also, the Share button is gone, replaced by a menu with other junk. Whoever was in charge of this redesign needs to find work in a different field.
A once great app now ruined
by Kenper222 on 2019/12/08 20:55
Too many ads. No longer worth the effort. This is even worse that Flixster. I feel I am forced to uninstall. I will reinstall if and when you dispose of the full screen ads. Until then goodbye IMDB.
My Go To Source
by joebo8 on 2019/12/08 19:23
For 20+ years IMDB has always been my go to source for Internet Movie Reference at a glance. Thank you IMDB! Keep it up!
Great app
by BlueRoseCrow on 2019/12/08 19:14
When the update was released, I got very jazzes up because I couldn’t find the search feature. That was my bad, as if I would have taken a second to actually look instead of getting all rages out, I would have seen that they just moved it to the bottom instead of the top. The new design also makes it easier to go to the home screen. It is a solid app. Though, I do still wish that there was a message board. Yeah, there was some toxic behavior on the message board, but also a lot of really good conversations.
Search should be the focus
by crplotne on 2019/12/08 17:28
The recent update to app navigation (Nov 2019) is terrible. Search is the only reason I go to IMDB. The “home” tab is useless. Search should be front and center and easy to use. Currently I have to click on the search button and then hunt for the text entry box at the bottom of the screen. This is a bad update. Put search back to front and center on the first screen that opens when the app opens.
Battery Drain
by Jmoneydog on 2019/12/08 17:12
The newest version drained my battery 20% in 5 minutes. I can’t use this anymore.
No split view support, no state
by MichaelNordmeyer on 2019/12/08 15:28
Doesn’t support split view and reloads the home screen after a couple of minutes so I lose the movie I was looking at before. Overall quite an annoying app.
A step backwards
by jam9999 on 2019/12/08 14:38
The latest update is really a step backwards with respect to the usability of the app.
Love IMDb
by SVeeBeth on 2019/12/08 12:15
I love IMDb. It does what it can. But I dislike the new app format. Too in your face, counterintuitive. And not user friendly.

Terrible update!

I used to love this app but do not like this latest version. Why on earth did you move the search function off the home page. Stupid! Microphone wont work now either. Terrible update.
How do I watch stuff

I don’t know how to find stuff please help
Just why
by Magzpony on 2019/12/08 07:24
The app was fine prior to recent “update”. More of a downgrade with the layout being much more archaic.
Among my most used apps and websites ever.
by hompsar on 2019/12/08 05:40
Absolutely love IMDB. Both the website and the app. Use it numerous times a week. Five stars all the way! There is one little gripe I have which has to do with the search function. For some reason they have moved the text box to the bottom. Call me old fashioned but it belongs on top. Throws me off every single time. If that could be changed back to being on top that would sure be appreciated. Otherwise, great app. Love IMDB.
Love this app
by rossnfound on 2019/12/08 05:22
This app is great for looking up movie and actor info and fun to learn so much about movies/shows we love !
Great for Movie Lovers!
by Cliffwert on 2019/12/08 05:15
This is a great app for any movie lover, the amount of information etc is unparalleled anywhere. The watchlist is great, and the app is smooth and easy to navigate. My one small, albeit important critique would be the rating system. I REALLY REALLY WISH IT WAS A BIT MORE DETAILED, instead of a simple 1-10. IT WOULD BE PERFECT IF IT WAS 2 digit 1-10, or 1-100. Nobody cares about my movie ratings but I’d love to be able to differentiate between something I think is say a 7.1/10 than something thats 7.9/10. Lets make that happen IMDB!!!
Where did the FAQ for each movie go?
by Rater1234 on 2019/12/08 05:14
Trying to follow any link to a movie FAQ opens the app -- and I have not been able to find where they hid the FAQs after the new update. The new update intersperses a lot of ads and content totally unrelated to the movie or show you looked up which makes it really difficult to use. Sigh. Guess it's time to delete the app and go back to using the website. Or maybe using another service. Too bad! Deleted.
Watchlist is gone.
by AngreeCat on 2019/12/08 03:51
Where the f*** did watchlist go? After the last update my saved watchlist is all gone.
New Design/Layout
by jd022571 on 2019/12/08 01:13
The navigation of the app since is re-design is awkward.
Hate the redesign
by bccf500 on 2019/12/08 00:28
The redesign is terrible. Why did you make it a picture app? Couldn't you have just released a new app for people who like the pictures and kept the old one for power users?
Latest update
by Leia522 on 2019/12/07 22:52
I’m not sure why the platform/look was changed, it’s not bad, it’s just weird where the search bar was placed. P.S it’s very laggy and kinda glitchy. Please fix that
Search not working (and app crashing)
by brandon_nirvana on 2019/12/07 22:04
The new search bar on the second page does not work in the iPhone app. When I click “search” it just takes it right back to the first home page. Then I have to go to the second page again for the search bar, type what I want in again and sometimes it shuts down all together. ...May I suggest putting the search bar back on the first/home page again and above everything as it was before the update? It was so easy to scroll and type rather than to click a few times and reopen after a crash. I kind of wonder why it was changed in the first place...
Massive usability loss
by Daryl Zero on 2019/12/07 21:00
The new interface that removes the persistent search field is an unbelievably massive regression in the usability of the app. Not only does it break a decade of expectations, it forces the user to go to both extremes of the screen as you tap a button at the BOTTOM of the screen to get the search field, and then you have to tap on the field at the TOP of the screen to place the cursor and bring up the keyboard. Did I not hit a button to perform a search? Why do I have to perform another action to actually do the search? This is something that users do ALL THE TIME in this app! I can’t understand how this went out the door.
Let The mosaic design Rest In Peace
by Some honest reviewer on 2019/12/07 19:34
Last update with changing the interface and navigation icons is too much change in one serving! Specially the search icon with very out of date 2 time tap to activate the keyboard!! At least if the change was inevitable, you could have saved the search bar at top for faster search. Now I’m writing this review (As I seldom do for any app) because I think IMDb is the largest and most useful database of movies out there and I have been with them from early days of a simple website till now and hope you guys fix this soon. Thanks. Also the drop down easy to access menu is replaced by an out of date mosaic design! The mosaic design died with windows phone, let it Rest In Peace!

Newest “redesign” is horrible
by BistroEngine on 2019/12/07 07:42
I rarely bother to leave reviews but this most recent update has compelled me to. It’s absolutely terrible. Please put the search bar back on the TOP of the home page.
What did you do to IMDB. Looks terrible and not usable. Bye-Bye until you fix it.
by Eggie's Dad on 2019/12/07 04:03
Terrible update. Too bad won’t use it any more.
No Need To Fix What Isn’t Broke
by SoozEmm on 2019/12/07 03:11
I use the app daily, BUT, I think the Search update was unsuccessful. To “simplify” the search process you took away the Search Box at the top and put the Search Magnifying Glass at the bottom with a message that it would “simplify” the search process, but all you did was add a step to the process because now I have to click on the Magnifying Glass at the bottom to make the Search Box show up again at the top. Adding a step to get to what already existed is complicating the process not simplifying it. Other than that, love the app.

Search on iPad - hidden, takes two taps to use it!!!
by SuperShoeDiva on 2019/12/07 02:00
Why do I use IMDB? I use it to SEARCH for information about movies. So why does it take two taps to be able to search for anything? And it is every single search! This makes it impossible to follow the rabbit hole! And no one at IMDB is paying attention to the reviewers! They are just commenting to restart the app which doesn’t fix this bad design!!! Cannot search for episode names!
Older version is better
by Tysearch on 2019/12/07 00:52
The older version has a better search interface. Please remember most people use this app for searching a title or an actor and at the same time people may browse the news on the page. The search field should be on the front page!
New interface is garbage
by Ryhanon on 2019/12/07 00:10
The new interface is terrible. Searching now requires you to tap a search button, then tap inside the search field to actually search (I just tapped the button, why do I need to tap inside the field as well? It should be pretty clear I want to search), then on the iPhone the search field inexplicably starts on the bottom of the screen and jumps to the top of the screen (where it *almost* changes back to the old interface) causing me to have to redirect my attention from bottom to top back to bottom as I search for things. This is easily one of the worst app redesigns I have ever seen - whoever came up with this UX needs to go back to school because they do not understand how to build a functional and pleasant UX. Just awful.
Can’t watch movie
by UnknownSecretLover on 2019/12/07 00:07

Amazing app till the latest version
by Nebulla Stark on 2019/12/06 22:44
It’s an amazing app but lately the last version of the app wasn’t as good as before, i mean i used to have an easy access to my watchlist but now it’s little hard. Anyway it’s still my favorite app but i wish you could restore the old version.
Put the search bar back on the home screen!
by gdubh on 2019/12/06 22:06
This is literally the main reason any of us open this app. To look something up. Put the search bar back on the home screen!
Terrible Update
by Newnexus6 on 2019/12/06 19:48
The latest update which eliminated the search bar at the top of the page was unnecessary, inane and creates an unwieldy app. Now, instead of just typing into the search bar I must first tap the search icon to get to the search bar. An extra step for those of us who are avid movie watchers and use the app dozens of times daily makes absolutely no sense. Why not add an advanced search ability like what’s available on the web page if you want to make the app better? I’ve used IMDb for nearly 2 decades and it just seems to be getting worse instead of better.
Why make Search harder to get to?
by M A 4 on 2019/12/06 19:11
The search function is the entire reason to use this app. Now they’ve made it harder to get to.
Not a fan of the redesign
by ZachSny on 2019/12/06 18:48
Thought I’d try and give it some time, but it just doesn’t seem to navigate well.
UX is trash.
by iTunesForHome on 2019/12/06 18:42
The UX is horrid thanks to the new UI. Placing the search icon at the bottom of the screen and now having to go the top of the screen to input search queries is absolutely aggravating.
Please
by 7rmason7 on 2019/12/06 18:41
Please bring back the upper fixed menu (search bar) 🥺
Very Useful & Entertaining
by Syr Spark on 2019/12/06 16:22
Whenever I need to get information on an entertainer or background on on a production, I start here. I have been using this website for years, and now with the app it is even more convenient. Even the least known movies you can find them at your fingertips. I can’t begin to imagine what goes into gathering the research and the design of your work.There must be a lot of dedicated people who put all of this information in one place. Thank you for all the work that you put into this app and website.
New update super glitchy
by Formerbarista on 2019/12/06 16:21

New version
by Lying Nickname on 2019/12/06 15:05
I don’t get it. IMDb has always been a great way to find out details about shows/movies. New search for iPad is in a dumb location at the bottom. Search pulls up all sorts of obsolete information. Anyway to go back to an earlier version? Sure wish I’d never updated. But maybe there is another such database out there....

REDESIGN RUINS APP
by peepaw815 on 2019/12/06 06:46
I love imbd. I use it so often and it’s a great resource. The recent redesign of the UI is garbage. It’s insane someone gave the greenlight to approve the redesign. The issue here is the SEARCH BAR. It’s been moved to the tab at the bottom of the screen AND THEN you have to tap the search bar at the top. They have essentially added a step to search the name of the actor in an episode, etc. Clicking the bottom and then top of a large phone one handed is now nearly impossible. CHANGE THE SEARCH BAR BACK TO THE ORIGINAL AND FIRE WHOEVER CAME UP WITH THE IDEA TO MOVE THE SPACEBAR This isn’t rock science here, folks 🙄
I love the app...
by KelseyNova on 2017/10/05 11:10
Edit: Thanks to the devs for responding to the issue. It's either stopped or you fixed it! I love the app! It's helpful and I use it a lot! **previous review** Recently there has been an invisible ad that pops up when I search for something. I don't have a problem with ads if it keeps the app free, my issue is that I can't click on anything while it's there. Example: I open the app and search for a title, on the search page an empty see-through box appears. If you try to click on something behind/within the box it goes to a video ad. There's no other way around it. I'm not sure if it's on purpose - again I don't mind ads to keep the app free - but it's a little intrusive in that I can't get around it. If it is on purpose, like I need to watch it before continuing, then the feature needs a tune up. The only way to get around it is to close the app entirely and go back in and start over. Otherwise I love the app, use it a lot, it's very helpful and in my opinion the app is even better than the actual website.
Unfortunate
by H16H_C0MM4ND3R on 2018/03/08 02:48
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.)
The BEST APP EVER!
by Saftymn on 2019/07/05 00:57
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
Fantastic app to track movies and shows & view ratings
by multiple uses on 2019/10/21 01:46
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!
Great, Useful App
by Discoball34526 on 2017/10/16 14:17
I use IMDb all the time after I watch a movie, TV episode, etc. and I love it. It's perfect for anything entertainment related and I recommend this app to any movie lovers. In order to keep track of every movie and show I have seen, I add them to my watchlist, and after viewing a movie, I always rate it and occasionally write a review. Overall this is a great app. 5/5 Stars Edit: I am still giving 5/5 stars for this app, but there has been even more stuffing of votes lately with regards to 1* ratings on Breaking Bad and The Walking Dead especially. Over the past few months, most episodes of TWD have fell around .2-.3 stars each, which is ridiculous considering the fact that older episodes should not be decreasing in ratings this much. Meanwhile, episodes of the overrated Game of Thrones are given 10’s every episode by so many fake accounts. This is hurting the validity of IMDb ratings and I hope that they can do something about these fake votes.
The best entertainment app!
by Alaskared49 on 2018/10/12 23:41
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…
by Summers03 on 2018/02/12 08:40
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.
Ratings are ridiculous
by Tannner17! on 2017/09/24 03:19
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.
Commercials with Commercials?
by Browncoat Cowboy on 2019/09/19 01:38
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
by Rajona on 2017/12/21 16:07
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.
Unable to add to my WatchList...?
by BlondeEnigma on 2019/08/23 23:05
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... ☹️😥🤯🥵
Attention grabber from the very first episode!
by Jjjeeeennnn on 2019/08/08 17:54
I was looking for something to watch. I felt like I had already watched every series worth watching from the 80’s, 90’s through today. I saw the previews for this and thought it looked rather interesting but I was still Leary so I waited and tried to start a few other shows with no luck catching my attention. I decided I would give it a chance. Well, it’s a new day and the season is about over! Since it’s new, there is only 1 season 🥺. I hope so much they keep making season after season after season!! It’s not one of those cheesy SYFY shows either. It is very realistic to what the future will probably be like in another 50 to 100 years (like FTL shuttles etc.). To wrap this up with a short summary, terrific show! One to definitely recommend! Enjoy!!
Good movie if you are cognitively equipped
by Skyking808 on 2019/05/28 01:27
From a person who worked with the medical, extended care, sports medicine and psychiatric care for more than 40 years; I clearly understand the point of this film and what it tries to help those who are the most resistant (yet ignorant) to life maintenance understand clearly. We in the United States have dealt with, in our youth of being a nation, just the maintenance of our lives with the medical and pharmaceutical industries supplying a fix to our shortcomings in the way we lead our lives. The convenience, and just a short symptom to ask for what is more of a larger lifestyle problem. (The above statement is outside of the scope of disease such as cancer and other life-threatening maladies which are beyond ‘first person human control’) This film is positioned to try to help you overcome acceptiong just symptom like fixes and to hopefully get you to understand and address what drives your body as you age and what you can do to make sure that you may better plan the length of your life, the quality of your life; while understanding what drives your system and what things you need to do in terms of hormone therapy, as you age, which will assist you a more productive, more enjoyable existence leading towards the end of your life.
Please help me so that I can watch movies on IMBD!!!
by rap500 on 2019/06/09 19:14
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!
55 Steps
by gloria's sister on 2018/10/26 18:59
What a wonderful surprise to see in the movie “55 Steps” such a sensitively written and well acted movie of events I remember so well. During the time period portrayed in the movie which starts in the adult psych unit at Saint Mary’s Hospital in San Francisco, I worked in another psych program and a friend of mine was a psych tech at St Mary’s. Discussions centered around the use of Merrill and other psychotropic medications were common place as we observed the damaging Impact on patients noting it not being unusual for the treatment being worse than the disease. The writing is elegant and sensitive and the acting spot on. 55 Steps finds moments of humor juxtaposed to the agony of mental illness, terror and the loss of control over ones body and ones life. And while the subject matter is as serious as it can be it is a lovingly craft movie and the best film I have seen in years.
I cried thru half of the film
by footballer009 on 2018/11/14 06:40
This is an amazing film that is moving, informative, painful, and beautiful at the same time. I watched “and they came for us” with my 13yr old daughter and I cried thru half of the film. I’m a 4th generation Hawaiian Japanese and my grandmother turned 98 on Sunday. She has never spoken a word about her imprisonment during the war. My parents were both given western names and not taught to speak, read or write in Japanese. My uncles and aunties lost their farms, homes, and dignity in Oahu, the big island, and Southern California and I’m outraged. My uncles bled in the war for the USA fighting in the pacific while their parents were imprisoned. This can never happen again. I’m furious about the treatment of Muslims blacks, and native Americans today. This normalization of hate speech, and characterizing whole groups of people is sickening.
Gone down hill
by BallouBear on 2017/09/15 19:57
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!!!
thank you and please
by Swmnupsrtm on 2019/11/09 15:46
We used to have a giant book of movies with ratings now IMDB is all that and more. This app is a wonderful resource of all things movies as well as an outlet for fans. Thank you. My only complaint is the inability save a written review to work on later or at the least automatically save my draft. I have lost some of my best written reviews because my phone rang or because I wanted to look up a word . Technically my phone should save the page or I could remember to write elsewhere and then cut an paste my reviews ,but that's a a repeated fail on my part. This app could have it all. A link or even option to watch some of the more obscure films would make it complete. Please consider an auto-save on drafts option , it would be so appreciated.
Recent disappointment
by RascalGirl on 2018/03/07 05:53
Before I just re installed it on my phone I would have given it 5 stars. Now??? I'm very sorry to knock my rating down to a 3. Just the other day, I deleted a bunch of apps because I'm running out of memory on my iPhone. I really missed IMBD! So tonight I uploaded it again. It couldn't look more different. It looks like a full web page instead of what most apps look like; a manageable size and construction for an iPhone. (I have a decent sized screen, too. It's an iPhone 6s+.) The words are too small for me to see and I'm unable to view the whole page at once and must move it around in order to see only part of the page at a time. I sure hope you have a suggestion for me. I loved looking and searching and learning about movies, tv shows and celebrities. Now I doubt I can use it. Is there any way you can revert this to the previous set up?
Only the Best thing Ever
by Soybean87 on 2018/11/24 19:50
I’ve been using IMDb since before smart phones were popular. It’s the most inclusive cache of movie knowledge on the planet. The amount of time I end up spending on this website/app is ridiculous because I just get sucked in! You look up a movie to see who was in it, then you start looking at all the other stuff Willam Dafoe is in, next thing you know you are reading trivia facts about Stanley Kubrick. It’s a rabbit hole but the best kind! Any dispute you have with your friends about what year a movie was or who the director was, will be instantly solved by a quick IMDb search. I don’t think this service even needs to be reviewed since it should be apparent to everyone how useful it is! Truly a ground breaking database! Great job guys!
App is Good but needs improvements
by Addison J on 2017/12/15 13:45
I’m a lifelong IMDB fan, I have found myself going to this site almost everyday for the past near 10 years. That won’t change. The app is good and I do expect it to get better. I did have a recommendation, something that I find personally annoying. When watching trailers, it is hard to capture the time ticker with finger to rewind or fast forward, and also you have the screen set up to swipe to the next trailer and what is annoying is that if we don’t catch the ticker then it just swipes to the next trailer. I find myself having to go back repeatedly, wait for it to load then try to go back to where I was and it’s just a big hassle because the same thing happens over and over. I would recommend getting rid of the easy swipe to next trailer or at least give us an option to turn it off.
Useful and Fun
by ramzyroo on 2019/01/01 21:36
This is a great app for anyone like me who always needs to keep track of what they need to watch or to review. I always have tons of films that my friends and family recommended to me, so I always go on IMDb to add whatever films or TV shows they said I should watch to my watchlist. I also rate whatever I watch on a 1-10 rating scale so I can keep track of what I’ve seen. Super useful, it keeps me organized very easily. Other people review Films and TV on the app too. so if i’m not sure if i want to watch something or not, i’ll go and see what other people think about it. All in all, this is a perfect app for any film buff out there to talk about films with other people, and to keep track of films and TV you need to see.
I Miss the Forums
by Recynd on 2018/10/20 22:25
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)
Thanks IMDb employees!!!!!
by Informative Dude on 2019/06/18 17:14
I wrote a review for IMDb before, but I must write another because they deserve it. ImBD is the best at giving you everything that relates to movies. I do have a few recommendations though. IMDb, you should add a feature that allows us to select movies that we have not seen, but would like to see, and place them into a “Would like to Watch List”. Then, when we watch the movies that our friends want us to watch so badly, we can put it into our watch list!! Also, would you be able to add what production company made each film? I know it’ll take a while, it it would very much help those of us who like to keep up with that! Thank you for your hard work, and keep it up!!!
IMDb is the best!
by Beagle the Boomer on 2017/09/28 18:39
IMDb is the best app to find information about anything relating to movies or television. You can find everything you’d ever want to know about any movie, any film short ever made (even the most obscure) or any tv series from the past or present. Info about any tv or film personality you could think of. There’s no limit on what you can find on the IMDb and you can use it on your desktop, tablet or smartphone. The only thing I can think of that they could add would be to have all the movie trailers and photos grouped together in one place so you could search for them - by year, decade, genre, star or just at random - so you could binge on them and discover the great treasures if the Hollywood dream factory.
Diamond in the Rough
by Royal Cherokee on 2019/10/06 02:58
This app, for me, is a diamond in the rough. By my standards, we live in a world where it seems as though for every app by which you are to learn and/or be cultured, there are 5 to do the very opposite. I love being able to look up movies and tv shows from my childhood to see who all took park in its creation. It’s is also fun being able to see some of my friends be listed - even friends I’ve lost. I’m only 30, but I’ve been blessed to just be a man from Texas who knows famous people. It makes their movies more fun, and their posted accomplishments is extremely fun for me! It gives me great pride in my friends. This site is well-run, and I proudly give you 5 stars. Please continue to be the diamond in the rough!
Movie bomb
by Fun Ni Guy on 2019/11/01 22:54
Have you played movie bomb? IMDB makes this game possible. Just get some friends to play. The first person says a movie, the next person has to name an actor in that movie, the next has to name a different movie that actor is in, the next person has to name a different actor in the last movie mentioned etc. When someone is finally stumped they say “movie bomb” of the last person cannot name another actor or movie, depending on what the last person said, they get a strike. You can determine how many strikes it takes to get out, we usually play three. This is an addictive game! IMDB makes it possible to fact check if you think someone is fibbing, if they are, they get a strike. Have fun!
Dead body
by Dizznmo on 2017/12/06 03:12
I would like to write a review for that movie but not sure if that’s what I’m doing as I seem to have to run through hoops to simply write a review on IMBD. You can’t just go to the bottom of the movie to write it, you have to go to the bottom on a certain page that I can’t seem to find every time I actually want to put my two cents in. Really freaking annoying as I can never remember how to do this! If this is an actual review of the movie I just watched I must say, it was awesome! It was bad as in not a great movie but it brought me back to the old slasher flicks like HappyBirthday to me in that we don’t know the killer, obvious maybe but it while you know it’s obvious that throws you off as you make yourself keep watching! I knew from the start but by the end I kinda forgot about him, maybe the wine, lol but brought me back to my teenage years in the 80’s and by the end I was like, oh my god, I knew it but still I totally forgot about him! Good job
This app so cool but some minor tweaks need to be done
by Campbell Howell on 2019/07/28 15:40
Let me just say this so I can get this off my chest this app is so cool true ratings all of that stuff. But there is something for me that I don’t like. 1. When people are writing reviews they don’t understand the show and they need explaining or they are asking a question about the show. But we can’t reply so if someone is misunderstood about something in the show or someone is asking questions then how can we fix. So that was the most important. Now on the last one. 2. The parents guide there are movies or shows that show what explicit stuff happened in the movie or show but there are some as if they don’t show anything. So I’m a kid so nudity or Quentin Tarantino violence. My parents are ok with violence and definitely swearing but when it comes to gross violence or nudity they say no. So In these movies that show anything in the parents guide when it’s pg-13 or R I’m not able to watch because it might have nudity or mega violence. Overall this app is really great especially when you try to find showtimes on movies it as easy as pie. Definitely suggest you to get it.
Love this app
by Kitkat221 on 2019/08/22 10:33

Bet way to find out about news and movies you can’t wait to see so excited about little mermaid the cast looks amazing I love the new cast and Ariel perfection and Tritons is amazing explains why she’s Spanish black princess he needs a solo flounder so cute omg is ya scuttle funny day and Ursula va va voom maker sexy cartoonist looks of flounder and scuttle when Ariel becomes human flounder and scuttle and Sebastian becomes humans put sparkles on flounder face like scales on something like that you can get ya honey honey is okay I sooo love you babe hunny sorry about last night.

Relative Race
by Ruby girl 48 on 2019/05/26 20:22
BYU TV provides a large number of excellent programs that are family Friends and teach some important lessons about life from various perspectives. There is no doubt that the best produced program is Relative Race. The rules change for season to season and that is understandable; the strive to keep the competition aspect even. The search for and discovery of family is by far the most valuable as you get to see so much raw emotion and joy from the contestants and their new family members. Most of the challenges are fun to watch and it is sad when various teams run into construction zones and lose valuable time. So many viewers fell in love with the twins (Team Black) but when the left the show there was still so much to draw and hold a viewers interest. Certainly some teams are able to have more exciting activities than others; but that is not that meaningful to me. The joy I feel is when mysteries and dead ends are resolved. That is truly inspiring. If I had my preference there would three seasons each year! Thank you to all involved in the production of the outstanding show.
Great app — some suggestions
by stovebuscemi on 2018/05/05 03:09
Love this app! does exactly what I need it to and I especially appreciate the Birthday Widget for apple devices. One suggestion would be to have a “Currently Watching” option like how you have a “Watchlist” and “Ratings” list. Id find this helpful specifically for mini series and television shows— because one or two seasons in I’m not ready to give it a rating but I also don’t want to lose it if I’m taking a break. I feel this option could also be helpful for tv show/movie statistics for imdbPRO users to keep an eye on how many are “currently watching” their content instead of just seeing who has rated it. Just some suggestions— great app/website!
STILL HAS A MAJOR PROBLEM
by Control45 on 2019/02/03 16:00
You developers still need to solve the problem with emails. No matter what I do I can’t turn them off. I have tried EVERYTHING!!! I even signed out and signed back in using a different email address BUT your application keeps finding all my email addresses and filling my inbox with USELESS email. FIX THIS!!!! Please don’t tell me to change my preferences because I have already done that and even with them all turned OFF it continues to stuff all my email inboxes with email. I enjoy your application but this problem is a major frustration. Why can’t you just fix this? This is NOT the first time I have tried to get a reasonable response. DO SOMETHING!!!!
APP CRASHES
by JoeVarughese19 on 2019/11/19 13:59
I love this app but only within the last month it has been crashing consistently on my iPhone X. My phone is only 2 years old and doesn’t have similar trouble/problems with any other applications. The problem only arises when I use the IMDb app too long doing deeper searches of movies and TV shows. For example, I would search a movie and then click on the director’s name and then see what else he/she has made. Then continuously go on further from there looking up other people until the app can’t process all the info and starts to slow down, lag and heat up my phone. The brightness on my screen increases along with a message popping up saying “Zoom Enabled”. I pray that I am NOT the only person with this problem. I love movies and tv shows, so IMDb is my app to go to.
Not enough stars to rate this app
by Give it a try 15 on 2017/12/31 00:22
The best app and most used app on my phone. I use it on a daily basis. When I talk to people who watch movies and TV like I do and they don't have or in a few cases have never heard of IMDB, I am shocked. It answers so many questions and solves so many arguments. As I open up IMDB to look at one thing, whether it be an actor, actress, movie, or TV show, I frequently find myself exploring other people or entertainment that wasn't my initial focus. The different platforms, iPhone vs iPad vs Mac are all so different. On the road I always use my iPhone, but when sitting in front of TV my iPad is open and on my lap It's all good though. If you don't have IMDB, you should.
App just stops working frequently
by Doufbag on 2018/09/05 19:20
I use IMDB a lot, maybe more than the average user. It’s an extremely helpful tool for following favorite performers’ work... and settling arguments, from time to time. It’s incredibly comprehensive, and though the ratings are skewed by shills/bots more often now than in the past, they’re still helpful. My problem is that the app will just stop loading after using for a few to several minutes. It can’t be just me. This has persisted across a couple to a few iPhones, and uninstalling/reinstalling doesn’t seem to help. I have to close the app, wait a while, open it back up, sometimes repeating the process several times in one day. I don’t know why this is, I’m not a super heavy user. Aside from the loading issue, it’s a good app.
Love the app and use it almost daily
by Changalicious on 2019/09/28 19:03
Love this app and use it almost daily. It’s super helpful to see the series order, show names and to be able to search for guest actors on specific episodes Feature request: please add a toggle feature or an option to look at the animated character pictures for animated movies and shows. It would be so helpful to us parents who are forced to suffer through all our kids movies and shows and want to search for an actor but aren’t paying close enough attention to get the names of the characters. Or when our kids say “what’s that characters name” and I have no idea because I wasn’t paying attention. PLEASE!
Nov 2019 overhaul...
by JKraley on 2019/11/24 11:16
...really is a terrible mess. I'm completely baffled by the incessant need to conform to "tiles", "blocks", "grids", etc. I'm keeping track and rating episodes of shows along with move, (previously) relying heavily on the simple search (history) which this newly reformed UI has complicated to the point of almost obliteration and warranted frustration. I just want the search option to be the way it always had been until late Nov 2019. I actually roll my eyes and groan when trying to quickly find my search history of shows which i episodicly rate, but I'm hit with complication and unnecessary rules, like a Windows 8 nightmare of an app that is now unexpectedly closer to "a trite made flesh". That was a quote from one of my favorite movies and I'll be damned if I can find that title alone as easily as I used to for 7 years... Change it back for the love of Ebert and all that, well, sadly used to make sense!
Truly a Database for entertainment
by Jillgee on 2018/06/19 03:31
IMDB is my Go To source for any question about movies, tv shows and stars. I have yet to find a question that I could not find the answer to on this App. Its great to have open when watching a show or movie bc it shows the cast and then when you click on each cast member, it shows everything that person has been in leading to a detailed look at each of those shows - and so it goes, ad infinitude from what I can tell. Last nite Someone looked familiar on Shades of Blue- went there and saw it was Jack from Revenge. No more frustrating brain - wracking! It does so much more, but I love it for looking up casts and ratings.
I am I destined to live with disappointments?
by I hate to be a bother but... on 2019/09/28 04:22
Once again I am very disappointed in this app. I have tried on numerous occasions to watch the TV show titled “Midsomer Murders”. This app is a joke. Every single time I have tried to watch an episode of this series a little notice appears on my screen after about 2/3 of the episode saying that “ we are so sorry but we have encountered a problem, please try again” I would have expected a company as large as you are to be able to put out a product that works. I have had to load and then get rid of this app about 10 times in two weeks because you are unable to deliver an episode without an issue. I am very puzzled about this because from what I understand this app has been available for quite a while and you still haven’t fixed it. Be happy you received one star because if it was possible I would give you zero stars
A Truly Amazing App (Movie Lover Or Not)
by YoshiTheBeast on 2018/02/24 21:34
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!
Horrible very limited app
by Mbsmollin on 2018/09/07 01:21
Don't get this app! The normal website is way better. All this app does is limit the amount of information you get on the movies you look up, and feed you more adds then you would get on the site. If you look up movies there are no user reviews of movies. They only show you main stream reviews from critics who are getting paid. They are trying to make it look like the movies they list are better then they may actually be, so you can't be discriminating. And I thought one of the main functions of imdb is so normal people can voice their opinions on movies to help others make good choices. Without user input, IMDb is just another version of fandango meant to promote movies for studios regardless of quality. Support user input and control on IMDb and don't get this app unless they fix it. Unless you like extra adds and limited info.
Great

I love this app, for informational purposes and also just for fun. My question is, how do we (the registered users) make edits/add to a page on the app? I used to be able to edit here and there, and after a few updates, I can’t seem to find what I’m supposed to click or hold or hover on anymore. Has that functionality been removed? Do I have to go to a desktop site to do this now? I won’t remove a star just because of that, it’s just disheartening. I hope that part of IMDB comes back to the app soon. Other than that, I’ve never had an issue with this app, it works great, and I love the endless info it provides.
Love, but I am not a fan of the most recent update.

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.
A Twist on Western Influence

This was a different role for Kate Beckinsale and I found her compelling, along with the rest of the cast. The constant twists and turns in the plot made the story watchable while questioning which shoe was going to drop next. Whistle blowers are at risk in any country, but especially in an area like the Congo where lawlessness is a government specialty. The suspense kept me binge-watching for two days. The story is multi-layered and it makes me appreciate the U.S., because while we are also a “broken country” we still have rule of law in place to protect citizens from outright wholesale mass murder in the streets. Ms. Beckinsale stopped being “Selina” to me and owned Georgia. The rest of the cast was also superb.
Just a few items...

Movie trivia and info sections are great. Some of the user reviews are either bots or planted by those involved in productions(not that big of a deal). However, parts of the news section itself are very bias and drag down the app. I’m neither a Republican nor a Democrat. I also don’t necessarily like our current commander in chief, but do you have to waste time listing articles with constant wisecracks and/or dumb attacks on the president? I get that IMBD is left leaning, and that attacking the Trumpster is the current cool thing to do, but it gets old after awhile. Some of the articles don’t even concern film or tv for that matter! It would be nice just get a break from all that. The current box office is depressing enough we don’t need help. :)
Ruined the experience

Any good app developer knows, user experience is everything. The old app conveniently had everything in a logical place. It took one tap to do searches, and anything you needed was one tap away. Now you have to tap around to try to find things. It is a convoluted mess. It doesn’t even look good. The home tab is completely useless, and forces you to start there. It is just a place to throw ads at you. And the rest of the tabs have no logical rhyme or reason as to why certain things are in it. I’d hate to say whoever designed this really doesn’t deserve the job they have, but I can’t see how anyone will be happy with using this app in this state. I used to spend so much time in it and now I immediately wanted to close it with no interest is opening it back up. I guess the current mission statement for IMDb is: if it ain’t broke, break it.
A Big Step Backward

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.
Trapped in IMDB, had to kill it
by Paulium42 on 2019/08/29 01:29
I have enjoyed using this app for many purposes. Among them has been looking at trailers, looking up directors and actors (and what a wonderful rabbit hole that is to fall into sometimes!!) and recently the new IMDB content including interviews of people in entertainment. However, I got quite alarmed and frustrated tonight when i was unable to stop a video and get out of the particular section I was in, such as the "More great videos of the week". The iPad became unresponsive and I had to actually double click the home button and terminate the app or select another one to get it to stop. This occurred twice in a row and then I could not replicate. So not sure if this was a glitch in the app or in my iPad. I will keep an eye out.
