This used to be the best, and one of my favourite apps. Now it takes forever to start on my OPO and Samsung Tab 2 & artist details take a long time to appear. Is it really necessary to show ads after every trailer when promoting a show. I can barely stand to use this anymore. After last update, it takes 3 or more attempts before the banner ad at the bottom will close.
For some reason it doesn't seem to load all the information anymore. Priority is given to add rather than database content. I totally.get that internet businesses need to make money by doing ads but not at the expense of the reason for using the app or the site. I just seem to have an app that shows me ads rather than giving me the information I downloaded the app for. If imdb developers want screenshots of the issues I'd be happy to provide them
UPDATED REVIEW: They have since fixed the update issues causing the problems below with a new update. Everything seems to be now working so I have given 3 stars instead of 1. ORIGINAL REVIEW: Thanks for the worst update imaginable. The app is now unusable. It doesn't even freeze, it never actually works for it to then freeze. Way to go IMDB/Amazon.
This used to be a great app, and IMDb is the gold standard for movie info. The latest update completely ruined it. It's so hard to navigate and almost impossible to use. Showtimes and tickets and movie information are buried, I can't imagine what the rationale behind that is. The flout menu is gone, so the navigation is nonexistent. I will not be using this app any more, it takes too long to navigate to the only reason I'm using it.
Forums removed Useless without the forums. There is really not much reason to frequent this site anymore. With each update it gets worse, this used to be such a good app/site but now the home page is just a cluttered mess.
The only things I can think to improve now are that, when viewing a movie, let me scroll horizontally through the series cast (like the mobile web view already does) instead of only seeing the first 4 and having to tap "See all." That and I'd still love an option to pay to remove ads, as they're still annoying.
We've updated the app with a new section on Awards and Events – get complete coverage of the annual awards season from the Golden Globes to the Academy Awards as well as the latest updates from the festival circuit. Also in this release:
- From the Home tab, explore Featured Lists
- From the Movies tab, browse popular movies by genre
- Bug fixes and performance improvements
