Simply great

It’s the watch list for me
Amazing
by Lovepink15 on 2020/09/23 08:17
It is quite the wonderful app, indeed. I've been using it for 10 years
This is a great streaming app
by TCocob on 2020/09/22 19:30
I was hoping that the Croods came out with a new movie or series and here we go in November available to watch right here. I love this app because it plays movies back to back great for dosing off on a Saturday afternoon and waking periodically to a new movie. I call it cozy tv/streaming Saturday.

I wish she was in more movies she’s great she’s in not enough movies.
UX/UI clunky
by Bookworm Expatriot on 2020/09/22 12:43
Like the app as a while but the new interface design is counter-intuitive.E.g., you’ve added a search icon to the bottom of the screen but the search bar pops up at the top of the screen. If it’s going to pop in anyway, why not just put it at the bottom of the screen. If you say, “because we put it at the top where people are used to it being,” then why didn’t you put the search icon up there too? You’re making me work too hard, and the #1 rule of UX/UI is “Don’t make m think!”

Not impress with this app.
by sandra0724 on 2020/09/21 21:23
I was excited about getting this app. Not bad app at all but honestly it will not at all airplay to my Apple TV at which it just freeze and that’s it. Don’t mine watching shows on my phone while I’m not home but if I want to watch on the Apple TV it will freeze highly disappointing..
IMDB is like TV Guide on steroids
by woody54 on 2020/09/21 20:47
I use this app almost daily to search for movies, television series and actors. IMDB makes it easy to quickly locate the name and roles played by almost every actor past and present. Extensive movie plots and series episode descriptions serve as useful guides to find what suits my mood. Cross referencing the movies and series with their main cast makes short work of narrowing down my viewing choices—and settling family disagreements.
Stop moving stuff around!
by Paleo Schnauzer on 2020/09/21 16:13
I use this primarily on an iPad in landscape mode. I hate the search at the bottom. I’m used to search on the top where it is in a browser.
Gr8 Source.
by Number 1 Guitarman on 2020/09/21 15:12
This site is awesome. It use to be you didn’t have many sources to turn to, if you needed more information on Actors, Directors, Movies, etc. By a simple click of the mouse, you have lifetimes of collected works at your finger tips.
Useful but...

STOP constantly nagging me to create an account and sign in. Please stop rearranging the user interface.
Watchlist widget??
by kc.is.me on 2020/09/21 02:04
Good app. It needs a Watchlist widget though.
Widgets Not Showing Info
by banditt76 on 2020/09/21 01:51
The app is great as always except for the Widgets on iOS 14. The movie titles for the Trailers Widget are not showing below the poster and the person’s name is not showing below on the Born Today Widget.
Love this app

Great to be able to access all these details
by JmeRides on 2020/09/20 14:20
Love to see all the classic movies that my favorite actors and actresses are in. The younger generations should watch the classics, and IMDB allows us to do that.
Awesome app
by mya109 on 2020/09/20 02:32
I don’t usually write reviews but I love this app, I’ve been using this app for as long as I can remember and I never had any problems with this app, also the new updated version is awesome. I’ll definitely recommend anyone to use this app.

Needs A Fix
by ISecretSpy on 2020/09/18 13:42
IMDb is a great service. The app has come a long way, as far as not being overly convoluted anymore. However, the latest iteration of this app won’t let me sign in with any service. I’ve been getting error messages for months now.
Outstanding App Except...
by Money $teve on 2020/09/18 05:29
Perfect app but for 2 improvements: First... I’m SICK OF ALL THESE ADS!!!!!! I don’t mind you making money but give me the option to purchase no ads. I want to be your CUSTOMER, not your PRODUCT (for ad customers). FIX THIS!!!! Second... I can rate movies and keep personal lists and organize all my thoughts about movies for myself (by making notes tied to a movie in a list) but I need the ability to make notes (for myself) about movies and people that are global, not tied to a list entry. In this age of social media I'd be happy with a comments section for sharing comments with others as long as I have the option of restricting the access to those comments to no one (essentially private vs public). Thank you so much for using meta critic as your primary ranking system. It is the best system for quickly assessing critics reviews of a movie. Don't consider switching to rotten tomatoes or anything else. Please make those two changes!!! Especially the advertising one.
I don’t watch anything without checking IMDB first
by sRamBler7 on 2020/09/18 01:11
IMDB is my go-to app when choosing what to watch. The ratings and reviews are usually spot-on! I also compulsively check when I’m watching something and can’t remember where I’ve seen an actor before. I also like that it usually tells you what platform you can watch a movie on. Everything I need.

Why is movie news all video games?
by sludge on 2020/09/17 00:09
Really annoying that the movie news tab has been taken over by stories about video game development. Why can’t you just add another tab called Games? IDGAF about games. It’s called Internet movie database not gaming database. UGH!
Terrible
by Tdogcolo on 2020/09/16 01:59
This used to be great site. But now that it was purchased the ads have tripled and you are required to sign in. There is nothing additional than before but now they have your info.
Sexual exploitation of children!!

Searching difficulty.
by Sonia8066 on 2020/09/14 00:59
Only one thing I think it’s not as good as the Letterboxd, that is the searching filter. Some movies name and TVs and filmmakers are highly similar. If I search “Dave” I will get hundreds of filmmakers but I really just want to check out the film; vice versa. Also, I wish the searching engine can list the most popular/well known/ classic movie of a title first in the result, instead of the most recent one.

Best movie/entertainment app ever
by $mky308 on 2020/09/13 19:50
I have been an IMDB user since forever. You can find out any & all pertinent info about movies and the actors in them, yes; but IMDB is useful for so much more! You can check release dates for upcoming theatre releases, biographical info on your favorite actors, actresses, producers, directors and there is still more! You can link it to an Amazon Prime account if you have one, make watch lists for movies or television shows you are interested in, and even find interesting factoids or quotes from your favorite actors/actresses. This is one of my VERY favorite apps to have, and I use it all the time. IMDB is my bible for everything related to movies and television, and if you try it, you will soon find it to be an essential app to have. I absolutely cannot be without my IMDB!
Stuck in previews, no main menu
by dramaQkarri on 2020/09/13 17:54
It seems there is no way to get back to the main menu without restarting your iPhone if you dare to watch a preview for an upcoming movie. How can something that basic get screwed up?

I enjoyed this movie. It left me stunned .. tears of love for her story .. I liked it. She is actualizing all through the movie ... incredible story .. done very well, the end was just wonderful .. it’s about love & friendship and individuation ... fr family yet still being a part of family. Struggles with her mother’s emotional pain and their cultural etc etc...it was a stunner for me. Consciousness, identity ..
Great!!!

How & WHY don’t you have an AppleTV app?!?
by Ontir on 2020/09/12 03:59
Mirroring from the iPad/Phone app to the AppleTV is ginchy, it keeps cutting out. You need to add one a year ago!

The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly
by Troy W on 2020/09/11 02:27
The Good: - The UI is very nice—it flows well and looks great. Heck, even the search tab only requires a single tap to get going (most UIs will require two taps at minimum). - IMDb , without question, has compiled the largest amount of information. From tv and short films to full-length features, everything you need is hear—and it’s all organized and interconnected. - While some apps are RAM hogs causing constant refreshing and reloading, this app seems to manage it all well. I’ve experienced very little reloading or crashing. - Robust set of shorting and filter options. The Bad: - Management: No good way to track your place throughout a tv series. - Management: No good way to mark titles as uninterested. - Management: When scrolling through title images, there is no good way to see/filter/sort titles that I have in my user created lists. The Ugly: - From Apple TV+ to Hulu, the set of streaming filters runs deep. This is a good thing, but there is an Achilles' heel -- no Netflix! IMDb includes a list of streaming filters from both those owned by its parent company (Amazon) and those not. With Netflix being one of the big boys, it's very inconvenient not have a Netflix filter. This is the one thing that keeps the IMDb app from being my one and only tool for managing my media content. Epilogue: Hands down, this is one of the bests apps out there and it is a must-have for any movie or tv fan. I just wish I didn't have to split my time on supplemental third party apps to track Netflix content. I truly would love IMDb to be my one-stop shop.
Since before IMDb was an APP!
by TinAndrewsHarris on 2020/09/11 02:14
I’ve loved IMDb since even before it was an APP in the early 2000’s! The review section, quotes and easy access to actors biographies and so much more!

A bit glitchy
by Neon5162 on 2020/09/10 19:28
It has a habit of starting up the next episode while I’m still watching the previous episode which means I’m getting both episodes sounds overlaying each other and then the app says I have no internet connection because the app overloaded itself by playing two videos at once. Plus the constant starting and stopping of the vid to load which I have tested on multiple different internet connections in different buildings so I know it’s not my home connection. Other than all that it’s a decent app with good shows on it.
Wasting time, not
by ROK 77 on 2020/09/10 16:54
Before watching a 2 hr movie I usually check it rating to ensure I’m not wasting time. The rating & review usually inform me enough I know if I will enjoy the move

Although I love the website, half the time the app will not load anything. I open it, and the screen is blank. I try to search something, and the spinney load icon just goes forever. When the app does work, I love it. It’s formatting is very similar to the website, and it’s very easy to navigate.
Another one bites the dust
by TheRealLadyShine on 2020/09/08 13:48
Amazon got too big for their boots, and now IMBD is a yet another casualty of conglomerates. Quality is lacking, proof-reading, for one, as the spelling and grammar are atrocious across IMBD and Prime. Ad-ridden, cluttered interface. Life used to be so simple, I’m going back to the start. Also, every update pushes Background Refresh on - just stop!!!
Half Empty Half Full
by BBG/CME on 2020/09/08 02:05
Very entertaining, emotionally complex themes not usually addressed in film. I thoroughly enjoyed the characters and issues in this film. Hope to see more projects from Andy Gershenzon in the future.
Essential
by Witty, or otherwise. on 2020/09/08 01:55
Not only do I use this App for information on whatever film (or program) I am in need of, but often you can watch fantastic films, at no cost, and that is rad, especially if you're not able to leave the house fr whatever reason & want something different than the usual offerings. The most difficult aspect of this App is the deluge of info, and reading about the new sequel that I was not aware of, and this leads into a virtual plethora of clicking on new posts, leading to new premiers, and that turns into HOURS I am not complaining at all. I am so full of knowledge about film & such that being so aware of said topics allows one to inform any person that would unknowingly miss my banter during lunch or dinner with friends, thank you IMDb! I have so much to say about so many films, I am affectionately known as "The Movie Guru"!
Not working.
by G.AbbyDuck on 2020/09/07 19:52
I have now installed and uninstalled the app three times on my iPhone promax 11. It will not open will not search won't do anything the little wheel in the middle still goes around around around in circles. Deleting it forever.

I love this app because it super duper helpful for finding appropriate shows for me to watch. One show that I love is Ties That Bind and it got canceled after one season. That really bothered me and I don’t know why it was canceled, but other than that this is a great app and it is rly helpful.

Custom lists are gone?
by lex-sf on 2020/09/03 01:44
Maybe it's me, but I can't seem to access my custom lists any more from the app. I like the new filter features in the Watchlist, but I have years of listings stored in custom lists - are they gone?? Will happily change this back to higher rating if they are restored (or if my mistake and can't find them!)
Love it!!! But..

Who's rating these movies?
by Lovechef21 on 2020/08/29 10:22
When I look up movie reviews I like to see the demographics of who is rating the films what. (Age, sex, American/not, etc.) You can do that on the PC version by clicking on the number of people who rated the movie underneath the overall rating. Doesn't seem to work on the mobile version. Otherwise fairly useful when I'm out and want to look up a title.

IMDB I am disappointed. But I guess I can at least find a name. Just join another organization to find out the important things.
Hate the ‘Rate App’ pop up box
by GruberHQ on 2020/08/27 21:50
If you want my positive review then remove the rate ‘Rate App’ pop up box. The ’Rate App’ pop up is extremely annoying and bad UX. I will always rate any app that does this with one star.
Amazing.

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.
Been using IMDB since the beginning of time but....
by Anon.111 on 2020/03/01 10:19
Excellent app, I use it daily, and always on the fly for a quick search. However with the last update you made the default load page not ‘Search’ but ‘Home’. This is a huge problem for me. First, the ‘Home’ page by design is cool, but because it’s loading content it’s slower to load. Instinctively I expect the home page to have a search bar but it doesn’t. So by the time the page loads I realize I have to manually click the ‘Search’ option in the lower bar. While this isn’t a huge problem, it adds the extra step of me having to having to click the search icon, which is counter-intuitive. This wasn’t the design in all previous IMDB updates, why the change now? This would be a 5 star review but because of the un-intuitive design I’m giving it 3. Not going to lie, I’ve used IMDB less and Google more for quick searches. Please either allow for a ‘Default’ setting where the user can choose what loads on startup or put a search bar on the ‘Home’ page. Even the latter, quick searches mean fast results, and having to wait for a ‘Home’ page to load and cache content every time I start the app doesn’t allow for rapid results.
Unfortunate
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!
Y IMDb?
by DroobieScoobie on 2020/02/18 23:15
Because, it is a one stop shop for all things cinematic. It is my favorite source (BEYOND Rotten Tomatoes, Metacritic, ect.) for professional and non professional reviews, overviews, random facts, technical specs, movie news, upcoming films, and an over all sense of community amongst cinephiles. It accepts contributions from professional and non professional reviewers as well as trivia facts which is then checked and approved by people hired to review the individual submissions. I enjoy how the program makes it possible to not only express individual opinions of all films and television shows, but also provides a place to increase their knowledge of film and get suggestions of other films they may not have found on their own. I trust the IMDb score over other media reporting because it is a collective intake of people who are fascinated and appreciative of the craft of film making and are interested enough to take the time and express their opinions. It’s worth having for anyone intrigued by the art of film.
Kinda Bad
by Cameron M. P. on 2020/04/02 19:58
If it weren’t for the fact that it is the only streaming service that has the show I’m looking for and offers it for free, I wouldn’t use it. I’ll leave the app for a minute and it will completely lose my spot in what I was watching. This is unfortunate especially considering the episodes are on the longer side so it can be hard to find my way back to where I was. Additionally, when I try to skip too far ahead in an episode after it has inevitably lost my place after I close the app for a second, it also tends to freeze up(yes I mean freeze, not buffer). As far as I know, this is not due too my connection as my internet is fine when using any other application. On several occasions, it has frozen when an ad is supposed to play. The ads are short and didn’t seem like a problem until I found myself constantly having to skip around looking for where I was after it loses my place; needless to say, this wasted a lot of time I’d rather be spending just enjoying the show. I appreciate the wide variety of shows offered here for free but the aforementioned problems really prevent me from enjoying it to the fullest.
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.
Love the info, hate the search feature
by TisaMeta on 2019/12/22 02:16
Okay, so, iOS devices all have search bars at the top (albeit, after pulling down). We are used to it. And we are used to having a cursor in the search bar, ready to go. Now you’ve gotten rid of the search bar on the main page (searching, of course, is probably at least 85% of the reason users have the app), moved the search feature to a button tap way at the bottom, but with the search bar itself being back at the top. I know we are to “touch search again to pull up the keyboard,” but it is seriously clunky. If I touched search, it should be obvious I am trying to type my query. Since this specific app is for iOS, why not match the gestures of the operating system and have users pull down on the home page to open search *with a keyboard up? Would be such a streamlined search to appease the iPhone crowd, and the home page and its articles would still be present to those browsing. IMDB is my go-to service for movies and celebrity info, but every time I open the app makes me regret it. Please change it!
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.
Terrible update
by Chewysrobot on 2019/12/24 05:13
I’ve been using the IMDB app for years. It used to be great but now it’s just frustrating. For example, I wanted to find the top box office numbers for the week. Can’t find it. I want to check movie news and now I have to keep scrolling down past stuff I don’t wanna see. Previous versions, you would tap “movies” and then check out whatever you wanted. Now it’s like pulling teeth. Been stressfully exploring the app now for a half hour. I still don’t know the box office numbers for this week. It is still fairly easy to find a movie. Search option is now down on the bottom. Click that and a search bar appears at the top. Kind of annoying but it’s fine. The “What To Watch” and “Top Picks” is a huge waste of time. The top picks we’re Saving Private Ryan, Up, and the 24 tv show movie from 11 years ago. Please bring back some of the past options and make it more user friendly. The app was very focused before. Now it’s all over the place and filled with fluff I don’t want to see.
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.
Horrible streaming platform. Just the worst.
by jordan3119 on 2020/05/04 11:49
Every part of your streaming service for movies and TV shows is awful. You should be able to pause it then come back and have it actually start from where you left it off. Not make me watch 5 minutes of commercials then start the whole show over again. It’s slow to load, too many commercials, and just looks awful. I’m not talking about picture quality either, I’m talking about the layout. It’s like you took as little time and effort as possible to put this thing together. You’re the only place I can freely stream one of my favorite TV shows - Fringe - and it’s getting to the point where I’d rather just not watch the show than deal with your horrible app. It’s seriously awful. I’d rather spend the day at the DMV then try to use your app to watch a show. I’d rather call my mother than use your app to watch a movie. Judging by the quality of your app I’d say you don’t have the highest quality employees so I’ll just put it in a way you will have an easier time understanding: YOUR APP=BAD. APP IS BIG BAD. NO NO GOOD. MAKE BETTER. MAKE APP WORK GOOD.
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.
The app design is breaking bad bigtime.
by kriket011 on 2020/01/17 03:29
When you look at an actor’s page, the years of the movies/shows they’ve done are removed. When you look at a movie/show page some of the actor’s role names are removed. What’s up with that? All you‘ve really done is turn the app into something less useful than it was before, degraded it. I don’t understand why people do that, it’s just stupid. I’m sure there’s a reason behind IMDb’s app design breaking bad, I just wish I knew what it is, because you can’t go so wrong by accident. This bad design is by design but why? Crucial information removed from the pages (title’s year, actor’s role names), UI’s main function (search) removed from the main page. iOS has search box literally on each and every screen, I wonder now if it would be faster and easier to search IMDb from iOS search without opening the app first, or with 3D touch on the app icon. Now when I think about it, it must be. That still doesn’t bring back the missing info misteriously removed from the pages. Maybe the web interface proves itself better than the app.
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... ☹️😥🤯🥵

Moviegoer Must
by EZEELC on 2020/04/08 03:16
Outstanding app that allows you to review movies and their credits from old to new. I especially like reviewing the autobiographies of cast members which include actors, directors, writers, and producers alike. The associated photo galleries are fun to scroll through as well. The trivia notes associated with each movie production are also so very interesting. Truthfully there are so many neat features that this app offers that I really can spend the time to describe them all. In fact, I am certain that there are many functions that I’m not even aware of and I use this app everyday because I love all genres of movies and I find it fun to explore all aspects of their production. They also offer free movies and TV programs for streaming which is a real bonus for me. For me personally it is the most entertaining, informational, and educational app that I have ever used!
Essential
by Witty, or otherwise. on 2020/09/08 01:55
Not only do I use this App for information on whatever film (or program) I am in need of, but often you can watch fantastic films, at no cost, and that is rad, especially if you're not able to leave the house fr whatever reason & want something different than the usual offerings. The most difficult aspect of this App is the deluge of info, and reading about the new sequel that I was not aware of, and this leads into a virtual plethora of clicking on new posts, leading to new premiers, and that turns into HOURS I am not complaining at all. I am so full of knowledge about film & such that being so aware of said topics allows one to inform any person that would unknowingly miss my banter during lunch or dinner with friends, thank you IMDb! I have so much to say about so many films, I am affectionately known as "The Movie Guru"!
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!!
Simply the best movie database
by the house ai on 2020/05/22 23:18
I’ve been using IMDb for years, mostly in app form, and I consult it daily, if not many times a day. Except for some rare foreign, or old, not well known ones, the database is so complete. I love being able to search by title, actor, or any number of things. Being able to see when, who, what, etc. is a movie buff's dream. I have big books on movies, but this is so easy, so fast, and I get the answers I need. I use it as a personal reference - a movie Wikipedia. I look up to see if I’ve watched a film (memory problems), what I thought of it via my rating on my internal system, other films with an actor, stills, trailers, videos. Films like it, or related As I plan an evening's viewing, I refer to it several times. The ease of the interface is amazing! My favorite app.
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!
New interface is garbage
by Ryhanon on 2020/04/30 00:26
This app used to be excellent until the UI redesign last year. Now the only thing keeping it installed on my devices is the fact that IMDb is the only game in town when it comes to this kind of data. If they had literally any meaningful competition they’d be crushed in a heartbeat because their app design is awful. As just one example: searching is awful, requiring you to tap a search button, then tap inside the search field before you can 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 redesign was phoning it in. Just awful.
Frustrating Horrible Redesign
by TLaffin on 2020/01/25 07:15
I’ve tried hard but can’t anymore. The “second” recent redesign is too frustrating for me to bother with. I used to read the “News” daily or a couple times when bored and now I have to scroll 9 screen lengths past a ton of movie placements and “topics” I don’t care about just to get to the news section. I quickly got used to the search feature clicking on the bottom and then the text box being right above it - now it’s back on top. So click at the very bottom of the screen but the next thing you want to do, type the actual search, is not then a giant thumb reach to the top of the phone - last all of the “suggested”/paid placements. My two local theaters don’t even use a compatible source for IMDb ticketing. I’ll just use Google for my movie searches now. Maybe Google will direct me back now and again, or maybe not. I guess it depends who is paying Google to appear above IMDb in the results.
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.
Terrible since the recent 2019 changes.
by gretagarbo123* on 2019/12/21 03:49
The recent changes in 2019 are terrible. I have an I Phone 8 and now there is garbage and pop up videos all over my IMDB screens. I can’t even access my “ history” easily. I have to click multiple times in search. There is no menu. When I do finally get my history I only get about 10 movies listed. Please someone FIX THIS! My husband has an I Phone 10 and his phone isn’t like this. He gets a menu where he can click history and then he gets his entire viewing history. I can’t get anything easily except a bunch of junk the clutters my screen. Prior to your changes I would have given this app a 5. Now it’s a 1 or lower. I’m going to quit using this if there isn’t a fix. My phone is not ancient. This was a wonderful app before. Now it’s annoying.
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?
They just can’t stop messing with a good thing!
by Newnexus6 on 2020/04/08 23:25
Wow! You guys at IMDb just can’t help screwing up this app can you? The developers obviously aren’t film lovers or at least don’t do much film research. I’ve barely, but begrudgingly, gotten used to the user ‘unfriendly’ search bar they devilishly concocted at the end of last year and now, as of today’s update they’ve decided, for no apparent reason that I can see, to put the artists credits under separate tabs for acting, writing, directing, etc. So we can’t run down the list to check an artists multiple credits, but have to go back and forth, and back and forth, and (you get the idea) .... between tabs. Maybe consider hiring developers who know something about film research???? I’ve used IMDb for at least 15 years and probably 20 years. As film lover and reviewer IMDb is indispensable to me. Please stop making it harder to use.
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.
Love it!

I use this app ALL THE TIME. If I’m watching something on TV, recognize someone but not sure from what, I’ll whip out my phone and look up the actor. After a trip to the theater, over dinner with my mom, we go down a rabbit hole, oh look, she was also in that movie with so-and-so. I like the way it suggests other films I might enjoy. I was going to complain about one little thing, but I updated my app a few minutes ago, and my complaint is no longer valid! (Cast names were limited to two lines of text, which sometimes meant the character name was cut off. But now they’re showing again!) I like the idea that I can watch some content for free, I just wish the app supported ChromeCast so I could watch it on something larger than my phone.
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)
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!
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!!!
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.
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
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!
Does the job
by BrentonBrown96 on 2020/03/22 12:02
I get the info I’m looking for but IMDb underrates the value it added to the film community through the forums and the ease of sharing lists and recommendations from the people these movies are actually made for. It just turned more into a members club for insider information and that’s because it either got bought or sold but at the end of the day movies are art and the user apps made around the medium should promote it as such. But the mortal fear of losing out or not getting what’s available motivated decisions from big wigs who don’t genuinely care about the millions of users of the database, because it is essentially the Wikipedia of entertainment and they should’ve kept the focus on the community like any forward thinking businessperson actually would’ve.
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

Great App but odd design choices
by corduroypillows on 2020/04/26 16:35
I use this app to look up shows, movies, actors, creators, etc. and always beat my friends who are googling it at the same time. I find it to be a great resource. However! When they moved navigation to the bottom... well, it just doesn’t make sense, because when you hit search at the bottom, the search bar appears at the top still; so rather than just tapping twice in the same general area, you are moving the whole length of the screen just to search, which is the only thing I do on the app. Seems like a strange choice. I have heard they increased the font size too much on the most recent update, so I will be waiting until there are adjustment settings for that to update. (Especially because I have a smaller older model iPhone.)
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!
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.
There’s no way to pause or stop a video once you start it!
by Steadinan on 2020/03/18 22:07
This is so horribly irritating! Why did you take all the transport controls, especially the pause button, away from videos (trailers, etc.)? I had to quit the app, and I was ready to delete it from my iPad after this. This is not the only time it happened, either. Also, as everyone else is complaining about, changing the search button to the bottom of the page but making us go back up to the top and tapping on the search bar, when it’s obvious that’s what we want to do when we tap on the search button at the bottom of the screen, is horrible! Another terrible thing that other people are also complaining about is the fact that there is no more back button and there never was a forward button. Please add those.
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!
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.

This is a great streaming app
by TCocob on 2020/09/22 19:30
I was hoping that the Croods came out with a new movie or series and here we go in November available to watch right here. I love this app because it plays movies back to back great for dosing off on a Saturday afternoon and waking periodically to a new movie. I call it cozy tv/streaming Saturday.

UX/UI clunky
by Bookworm Expatriot on 2020/09/22 12:43
Like the app as a while but the new interface design is counter-intuitive.E.g., you’ve added a search icon to the bottom of the screen but the search bar pops up at the top of the screen. If it’s going to pop in anyway, why not just put it at the bottom of the screen. If you say, “because we put it at the top where people are used to it being,” then why didn’t you put the search icon up there too? You’re making me work too hard, and the #1 rule of UX/UI is “Don’t make m think!”

I was excited about getting this app. Not bad app at all but honestly it will not at all airplay to my Apple TV at which it just freeze and that’s it. Don’t mine watching shows on my phone while I’m not home but if I want to watch on the Apple TV it will freeze highly disappointing..
IMDB is like TV Guide on steroids
by woody54 on 2020/09/21 20:47
I use this app almost daily to search for movies, television series and actors. IMDB makes it easy to quickly locate the name and roles played by almost every actor past and present. Extensive movie plots and series episode descriptions serve as useful guides to find what suits my mood. Cross referencing the movies and series with their main cast makes short work of narrowing down my viewing choices—and settling family disagreements.
Stop moving stuff around!
by Paleo Schnauzer on 2020/09/21 16:13
I use this primarily on an iPad in landscape mode. I hate the search at the bottom. I’m used to search on the top where it is in a browser.

IMDb is a great service. The app has come a long way, as far as not being overly convoluted anymore. However, the latest iteration of this app won’t let me sign in with any service. I’ve been getting error messages for months now.
Outstanding App Except...
by Money $teve on 2020/09/18 05:29
Perfect app but for 2 improvements: First... I’m SICK OF ALL THESE ADS!!!!!! I don’t mind you making money but give me the option to purchase no ads. I want to be your CUSTOMER, not your PRODUCT (for ad customers). FIX THIS!!!! Second... I can rate movies and keep personal lists and organize all my thoughts about movies for myself (by making notes tied to a movie in a list) but I need the ability to make notes (for myself) about movies and people that are global, not tied to a list entry. In this age of social media I'd be happy with a comments section for sharing comments with others as long as I have the option of restricting the access to those comments to no one (essentially private vs public). Thank you so much for using meta critic as your primary ranking system. It is the best system for quickly assessing critics reviews of a movie. Don't consider switching to rotten tomatoes or anything else. Please make those two changes!!! Especially the advertising one.
I don’t watch anything without checking IMDB first
by sRamBler7 on 2020/09/18 01:11
IMDB is my go-to app when choosing what to watch. The ratings and reviews are usually spot-on! I also compulsively check when I’m watching something and can’t remember where I’ve seen an actor before. I also like that it usually tells you what platform you can watch a movie on. Everything I need.

Searching difficulty.
by Sonia8066 on 2020/09/14 00:59
Only one thing I think it’s not as good as the Letterboxd, that is the searching filter. Some movies name and TVs and filmmakers are highly similar. If I search “Dave” I will get hundreds of filmmakers but I really just want to check out the film; vice versa. Also, I wish the searching engine can list the most popular/well known/ classic movie of a title first in the result, instead of the most recent one.

Best movie/entertainment app ever
by $mky308 on 2020/09/13 19:50
I have been an IMDB user since forever. You can find out any & all pertinent info about movies and the actors in them, yes; but IMDB is useful for so much more! You can check release dates for upcoming theatre releases, biographical info on your favorite actors, actresses, producers, directors and there is still more! You can link it to an Amazon Prime account if you have one, make watch lists for movies or television shows you are interested in, and even find interesting factoids or quotes from your favorite actors/actresses. This is one of my VERY favorite apps to have, and I use it all the time. IMDB is my bible for everything related to movies and television, and if you try it, you will soon find it to be an essential app to have. I absolutely cannot be without my IMDB!

The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly
by Troy W on 2020/09/11 02:27
The Good: - The UI is very nice—it flows well and looks great. Heck, even the search tab only requires a single tap to get going (most UIs will require two taps at minimum). - IMDb , without question, has compiled the largest amount of information. From tv and short films to full-length features, everything you need is hear—and it’s all organized and interconnected. - While some apps are RAM hogs causing constant refreshing and reloading, this app seems to manage it all well. I’ve experienced very little reloading or crashing. - Robust set of shorting and filter options. The Bad: - Management: No good way to track your place throughout a tv series. - Management: No good way to mark titles as uninterested. - Management: When scrolling through title images, there is no good way to see/filter/sort titles that I have in my user created lists. The Ugly: - From Apple TV+ to Hulu, the set of streaming filters runs deep. This is a good thing, but there is an Achilles' heel -- no Netflix! IMDb includes a list of streaming filters from both those owned by its parent company (Amazon) and those not. With Netflix being one of the big boys, it's very inconvenient not have a Netflix filter. This is the one thing that keeps the IMDb app from being my one and only tool for managing my media content. Epilogue: Hands down, this is one of the bests apps out there and it is a must-have for any movie or tv fan. I just wish I didn't have to split my time on supplemental third party apps to track Netflix content. I truly would love IMDb to be my one-stop shop.
Since before IMDb was an APP!
by TinAndrewsHarris on 2020/09/11 02:14
I’ve loved IMDb since even before it was an APP in the early 2000’s! The review section, quotes and easy access to actors biographies and so much more!
Excellent

A bit glitchy
by Neon5162 on 2020/09/10 19:28
It has a habit of starting up the next episode while I’m still watching the previous episode which means I’m getting both episodes sounds overlaying each other and then the app says I have no internet connection because the app overloaded itself by playing two videos at once. Plus the constant starting and stopping of the vid to load which I have tested on multiple different internet connections in different buildings so I know it’s not my home connection. Other than all that it’s a decent app with good shows on it.
Wasting time, not

Before watching a 2 hr movie I usually check it rating to ensure I’m not wasting time. The rating & review usually inform me enough I know if I will enjoy the move

Although I love the website, half the time the app will not load anything. I open it, and the screen is blank. I try to search something, and the spinney load icon just goes forever. When the app does work, I love it. It’s formatting is very similar to the website, and it’s very easy to navigate.
Another one bites the dust
by TheRealLadyShine on 2020/09/08 13:48
Amazon got too big for their boots, and now IMBD is a yet another casualty of conglomerates. Quality is lacking, proof-reading, for one, as the spelling and grammar are atrocious across IMBD and Prime. Ad-ridden, cluttered interface. Life used to be so simple, I’m going back to the start. Also, every update pushes Background Refresh on - just stop!!!

Essential
by Witty, or otherwise. on 2020/09/08 01:55
Not only do I use this App for information on whatever film (or program) I am in need of, but often you can watch fantastic films, at no cost, and that is rad, especially if you're not able to leave the house fr whatever reason & want something different than the usual offerings. The most difficult aspect of this App is the deluge of info, and reading about the new sequel that I was not aware of, and this leads into a virtual plethora of clicking on new posts, leading to new premiers, and that turns into HOURS I am not complaining at all. I am so full of knowledge about film & such that being so aware of said topics allows one to inform any person that would unknowingly miss my banter during lunch or dinner with friends, thank you IMDb! I have so much to say about so many films, I am affectionately known as "The Movie Guru"!

I love this app because it super duper helpful for finding appropriate shows for me to watch. One show that I love is Ties That Bind and it got canceled after one season. That really bothered me and I don’t know why it was canceled, but other than that this is a great app and it is rly helpful.

Custom lists are gone?
by lex-sf on 2020/09/03 01:44
Maybe it's me, but I can't seem to access my custom lists any more from the app. I like the new filter features in the Watchlist, but I have years of listings stored in custom lists - are they gone?? Will happily change this back to higher rating if they are restored (or if my mistake and can't find them!)
Love it!!! But..

Who's rating these movies?
by Lovechef21 on 2020/08/29 10:22
When I look up movie reviews I like to see the demographics of who is rating the films what. (Age, sex, American/not, etc.) You can do that on the PC version by clicking on the number of people who rated the movie underneath the overall rating. Doesn't seem to work on the mobile version. Otherwise fairly useful when I'm out and want to look up a title.

Hate the ‘Rate App’ pop up box
by GruberHQ on 2020/08/27 21:50
If you want my positive review then remove the rate ‘Rate App’ pop up box. The ’Rate App’ pop up is extremely annoying and bad UX. I will always rate any app that does this with one star.
Amazing.

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.
Been using IMDB since the beginning of time but....
by Anon.111 on 2020/03/01 10:19
Excellent app, I use it daily, and always on the fly for a quick search. However with the last update you made the default load page not ‘Search’ but ‘Home’. This is a huge problem for me. First, the ‘Home’ page by design is cool, but because it’s loading content it’s slower to load. Instinctively I expect the home page to have a search bar but it doesn’t. So by the time the page loads I realize I have to manually click the ‘Search’ option in the lower bar. While this isn’t a huge problem, it adds the extra step of me having to having to click the search icon, which is counter-intuitive. This wasn’t the design in all previous IMDB updates, why the change now? This would be a 5 star review but because of the un-intuitive design I’m giving it 3. Not going to lie, I’ve used IMDB less and Google more for quick searches. Please either allow for a ‘Default’ setting where the user can choose what loads on startup or put a search bar on the ‘Home’ page. Even the latter, quick searches mean fast results, and having to wait for a ‘Home’ page to load and cache content every time I start the app doesn’t allow for rapid results.
Unfortunate
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!
Y IMDb?
by DroobieScoobie on 2020/02/18 23:15
Because, it is a one stop shop for all things cinematic. It is my favorite source (BEYOND Rotten Tomatoes, Metacritic, ect.) for professional and non professional reviews, overviews, random facts, technical specs, movie news, upcoming films, and an over all sense of community amongst cinephiles. It accepts contributions from professional and non professional reviewers as well as trivia facts which is then checked and approved by people hired to review the individual submissions. I enjoy how the program makes it possible to not only express individual opinions of all films and television shows, but also provides a place to increase their knowledge of film and get suggestions of other films they may not have found on their own. I trust the IMDb score over other media reporting because it is a collective intake of people who are fascinated and appreciative of the craft of film making and are interested enough to take the time and express their opinions. It’s worth having for anyone intrigued by the art of film.
Kinda Bad
by Cameron M. P. on 2020/04/02 19:58
If it weren’t for the fact that it is the only streaming service that has the show I’m looking for and offers it for free, I wouldn’t use it. I’ll leave the app for a minute and it will completely lose my spot in what I was watching. This is unfortunate especially considering the episodes are on the longer side so it can be hard to find my way back to where I was. Additionally, when I try to skip too far ahead in an episode after it has inevitably lost my place after I close the app for a second, it also tends to freeze up(yes I mean freeze, not buffer). As far as I know, this is not due too my connection as my internet is fine when using any other application. On several occasions, it has frozen when an ad is supposed to play. The ads are short and didn’t seem like a problem until I found myself constantly having to skip around looking for where I was after it loses my place; needless to say, this wasted a lot of time I’d rather be spending just enjoying the show. I appreciate the wide variety of shows offered here for free but the aforementioned problems really prevent me from enjoying it to the fullest.
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.
Love the info, hate the search feature
by TisaMeta on 2019/12/22 02:16
Okay, so, iOS devices all have search bars at the top (albeit, after pulling down). We are used to it. And we are used to having a cursor in the search bar, ready to go. Now you’ve gotten rid of the search bar on the main page (searching, of course, is probably at least 85% of the reason users have the app), moved the search feature to a button tap way at the bottom, but with the search bar itself being back at the top. I know we are to “touch search again to pull up the keyboard,” but it is seriously clunky. If I touched search, it should be obvious I am trying to type my query. Since this specific app is for iOS, why not match the gestures of the operating system and have users pull down on the home page to open search *with a keyboard up? Would be such a streamlined search to appease the iPhone crowd, and the home page and its articles would still be present to those browsing. IMDB is my go-to service for movies and celebrity info, but every time I open the app makes me regret it. Please change it!
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.
Terrible update
by Chewysrobot on 2019/12/24 05:13
I’ve been using the IMDB app for years. It used to be great but now it’s just frustrating. For example, I wanted to find the top box office numbers for the week. Can’t find it. I want to check movie news and now I have to keep scrolling down past stuff I don’t wanna see. Previous versions, you would tap “movies” and then check out whatever you wanted. Now it’s like pulling teeth. Been stressfully exploring the app now for a half hour. I still don’t know the box office numbers for this week. It is still fairly easy to find a movie. Search option is now down on the bottom. Click that and a search bar appears at the top. Kind of annoying but it’s fine. The “What To Watch” and “Top Picks” is a huge waste of time. The top picks we’re Saving Private Ryan, Up, and the 24 tv show movie from 11 years ago. Please bring back some of the past options and make it more user friendly. The app was very focused before. Now it’s all over the place and filled with fluff I don’t want to see.
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.
Horrible streaming platform. Just the worst.
by jordan3119 on 2020/05/04 11:49
Every part of your streaming service for movies and TV shows is awful. You should be able to pause it then come back and have it actually start from where you left it off. Not make me watch 5 minutes of commercials then start the whole show over again. It’s slow to load, too many commercials, and just looks awful. I’m not talking about picture quality either, I’m talking about the layout. It’s like you took as little time and effort as possible to put this thing together. You’re the only place I can freely stream one of my favorite TV shows - Fringe - and it’s getting to the point where I’d rather just not watch the show than deal with your horrible app. It’s seriously awful. I’d rather spend the day at the DMV then try to use your app to watch a show. I’d rather call my mother than use your app to watch a movie. Judging by the quality of your app I’d say you don’t have the highest quality employees so I’ll just put it in a way you will have an easier time understanding: YOUR APP=BAD. APP IS BIG BAD. NO NO GOOD. MAKE BETTER. MAKE APP WORK GOOD.
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.
The app design is breaking bad bigtime.
by kriket011 on 2020/01/17 03:29
When you look at an actor’s page, the years of the movies/shows they’ve done are removed. When you look at a movie/show page some of the actor’s role names are removed. What’s up with that? All you‘ve really done is turn the app into something less useful than it was before, degraded it. I don’t understand why people do that, it’s just stupid. I’m sure there’s a reason behind IMDb’s app design breaking bad, I just wish I knew what it is, because you can’t go so wrong by accident. This bad design is by design but why? Crucial information removed from the pages (title’s year, actor’s role names), UI’s main function (search) removed from the main page. iOS has search box literally on each and every screen, I wonder now if it would be faster and easier to search IMDb from iOS search without opening the app first, or with 3D touch on the app icon. Now when I think about it, it must be. That still doesn’t bring back the missing info misteriously removed from the pages. Maybe the web interface proves itself better than the app.
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... ☹️😥🤯🥵

I would love to audition to be the Counselor for the couple’s on the show I think that I could have helped keep a lot of couples together or at least tried to, and there are a lot of couples that may need to call it a day. My 49 year old daughter could have written for Saturday night live. She is addicted to all of your shows with me. I am on social media as Debra Marie Yunson-gulledge and Celebrate Deliverance. I have been called an old hag and old woman by the left yet I am constantly told that I don’t look my age. I am a local Gospel and Country singer. And had many years on stage as a Community Actress on Oahu where I am from. Thanks for your time had to send u this message get it off my chest so I can stop thinking about it. My husband is an 82 yr old country harmonica singer songwriter. I will send u his cd and my gospel single not mixed yet. Love love love your show thanks for this happiness thru COVID-19.

Moviegoer Must
by EZEELC on 2020/04/08 03:16
Outstanding app that allows you to review movies and their credits from old to new. I especially like reviewing the autobiographies of cast members which include actors, directors, writers, and producers alike. The associated photo galleries are fun to scroll through as well. The trivia notes associated with each movie production are also so very interesting. Truthfully there are so many neat features that this app offers that I really can spend the time to describe them all. In fact, I am certain that there are many functions that I’m not even aware of and I use this app everyday because I love all genres of movies and I find it fun to explore all aspects of their production. They also offer free movies and TV programs for streaming which is a real bonus for me. For me personally it is the most entertaining, informational, and educational app that I have ever used!
Essential
by Witty, or otherwise. on 2020/09/08 01:55
Not only do I use this App for information on whatever film (or program) I am in need of, but often you can watch fantastic films, at no cost, and that is rad, especially if you're not able to leave the house fr whatever reason & want something different than the usual offerings. The most difficult aspect of this App is the deluge of info, and reading about the new sequel that I was not aware of, and this leads into a virtual plethora of clicking on new posts, leading to new premiers, and that turns into HOURS I am not complaining at all. I am so full of knowledge about film & such that being so aware of said topics allows one to inform any person that would unknowingly miss my banter during lunch or dinner with friends, thank you IMDb! I have so much to say about so many films, I am affectionately known as "The Movie Guru"!
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!!
Simply the best movie database
by the house ai on 2020/05/22 23:18
I’ve been using IMDb for years, mostly in app form, and I consult it daily, if not many times a day. Except for some rare foreign, or old, not well known ones, the database is so complete. I love being able to search by title, actor, or any number of things. Being able to see when, who, what, etc. is a movie buff's dream. I have big books on movies, but this is so easy, so fast, and I get the answers I need. I use it as a personal reference - a movie Wikipedia. I look up to see if I’ve watched a film (memory problems), what I thought of it via my rating on my internal system, other films with an actor, stills, trailers, videos. Films like it, or related As I plan an evening's viewing, I refer to it several times. The ease of the interface is amazing! My favorite app.
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!
New interface is garbage
by Ryhanon on 2020/04/30 00:26
This app used to be excellent until the UI redesign last year. Now the only thing keeping it installed on my devices is the fact that IMDb is the only game in town when it comes to this kind of data. If they had literally any meaningful competition they’d be crushed in a heartbeat because their app design is awful. As just one example: searching is awful, requiring you to tap a search button, then tap inside the search field before you can 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 redesign was phoning it in. Just awful.
Frustrating Horrible Redesign
by TLaffin on 2020/01/25 07:15
I’ve tried hard but can’t anymore. The “second” recent redesign is too frustrating for me to bother with. I used to read the “News” daily or a couple times when bored and now I have to scroll 9 screen lengths past a ton of movie placements and “topics” I don’t care about just to get to the news section. I quickly got used to the search feature clicking on the bottom and then the text box being right above it - now it’s back on top. So click at the very bottom of the screen but the next thing you want to do, type the actual search, is not then a giant thumb reach to the top of the phone - last all of the “suggested”/paid placements. My two local theaters don’t even use a compatible source for IMDb ticketing. I’ll just use Google for my movie searches now. Maybe Google will direct me back now and again, or maybe not. I guess it depends who is paying Google to appear above IMDb in the results.
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.
Terrible since the recent 2019 changes.
by gretagarbo123* on 2019/12/21 03:49
The recent changes in 2019 are terrible. I have an I Phone 8 and now there is garbage and pop up videos all over my IMDB screens. I can’t even access my “ history” easily. I have to click multiple times in search. There is no menu. When I do finally get my history I only get about 10 movies listed. Please someone FIX THIS! My husband has an I Phone 10 and his phone isn’t like this. He gets a menu where he can click history and then he gets his entire viewing history. I can’t get anything easily except a bunch of junk the clutters my screen. Prior to your changes I would have given this app a 5. Now it’s a 1 or lower. I’m going to quit using this if there isn’t a fix. My phone is not ancient. This was a wonderful app before. Now it’s annoying.
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?
They just can’t stop messing with a good thing!
by Newnexus6 on 2020/04/08 23:25
Wow! You guys at IMDb just can’t help screwing up this app can you? The developers obviously aren’t film lovers or at least don’t do much film research. I’ve barely, but begrudgingly, gotten used to the user ‘unfriendly’ search bar they devilishly concocted at the end of last year and now, as of today’s update they’ve decided, for no apparent reason that I can see, to put the artists credits under separate tabs for acting, writing, directing, etc. So we can’t run down the list to check an artists multiple credits, but have to go back and forth, and back and forth, and (you get the idea) .... between tabs. Maybe consider hiring developers who know something about film research???? I’ve used IMDb for at least 15 years and probably 20 years. As film lover and reviewer IMDb is indispensable to me. Please stop making it harder to use.
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.
Love it!
by Cellovator on 2020/03/01 03:04
I use this app ALL THE TIME. If I’m watching something on TV, recognize someone but not sure from what, I’ll whip out my phone and look up the actor. After a trip to the theater, over dinner with my mom, we go down a rabbit hole, oh look, she was also in that movie with so-and-so. I like the way it suggests other films I might enjoy. I was going to complain about one little thing, but I updated my app a few minutes ago, and my complaint is no longer valid! (Cast names were limited to two lines of text, which sometimes meant the character name was cut off. But now they’re showing again!) I like the idea that I can watch some content for free, I just wish the app supported ChromeCast so I could watch it on something larger than my phone.
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)
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!
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!!!
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.
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
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!
Does the job
by BrentonBrown96 on 2020/03/22 12:02
I get the info I’m looking for but IMDb underrates the value it added to the film community through the forums and the ease of sharing lists and recommendations from the people these movies are actually made for. It just turned more into a members club for insider information and that’s because it either got bought or sold but at the end of the day movies are art and the user apps made around the medium should promote it as such. But the mortal fear of losing out or not getting what’s available motivated decisions from big wigs who don’t genuinely care about the millions of users of the database, because it is essentially the Wikipedia of entertainment and they should’ve kept the focus on the community like any forward thinking businessperson actually would’ve.
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

Great App but odd design choices
by corduroypillows on 2020/04/26 16:35
I use this app to look up shows, movies, actors, creators, etc. and always beat my friends who are googling it at the same time. I find it to be a great resource. However! When they moved navigation to the bottom... well, it just doesn’t make sense, because when you hit search at the bottom, the search bar appears at the top still; so rather than just tapping twice in the same general area, you are moving the whole length of the screen just to search, which is the only thing I do on the app. Seems like a strange choice. I have heard they increased the font size too much on the most recent update, so I will be waiting until there are adjustment settings for that to update. (Especially because I have a smaller older model iPhone.)
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!
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.
There’s no way to pause or stop a video once you start it!
by Steadinan on 2020/03/18 22:07
This is so horribly irritating! Why did you take all the transport controls, especially the pause button, away from videos (trailers, etc.)? I had to quit the app, and I was ready to delete it from my iPad after this. This is not the only time it happened, either. Also, as everyone else is complaining about, changing the search button to the bottom of the page but making us go back up to the top and tapping on the search bar, when it’s obvious that’s what we want to do when we tap on the search button at the bottom of the screen, is horrible! Another terrible thing that other people are also complaining about is the fact that there is no more back button and there never was a forward button. Please add those.
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!
APP CRASHES

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.
