It won’t show a theater right down the road that I want to visit.
Only two that are further away; this app is now completely useless.
Miss the old days... 3/5
Miss the old days when they had humorous descriptions for upcoming movies & message boards...
Not Interested Button 1/5
Where did it go? Now all these movies and shows keep popping in my recommendation feed, and I can’t get rid of them. Bring back the Not Interested tab please.
Best app for film/television Info 5/5
Great trivia on most films and actors as well!
Easy to use, just don’t know why they want you to make an account and acquire yet another username and passwordwhen you can get all the info u want without signing in
I use it everyday 3/5
Ever since I updated the iOS it keeps asking me to turn on location settings. I have turned off all the correct things in my phone settings to prevent any location pop ups but keeps coming up with this app only. Recently, pop up would not go away until I hard reset my phone.
Would be 5 stars if this was fixed.
Also, still bitter about getting rid of message boards..
missing 1 thing 3/5
Please add ability to pay to remove the annoying ad at the bottom of the screen! The X to remove it only works for that screen, and once a teen changes it's back.
Please I'll pay for the app just let me get rid of it permanently!
Closes completely when switched apps 2/5
By Sai PKG
Everytime I switch apps it closes completely! Why can't it stay open in the background like every other app??
No network information 3/5
This app is missing one of the most important key aspects... which is the television network of tv shows! This drives me CRAZY!!! It’s so frustrating having to go online to search for the network. This app has everything and anything you need to know (other than network), yet I still have to go online to find out which network the show is on, deeming this app useless! The original website will give me a synopsis and cast anyways! Annoying! Which is why I only give a 3 star rating.
IMDb buzz?? 5/5
Love this app too but also loved IMDb buzz. Are you no longer updating/supporting that?? It doesn’t work for the latest iOS update.
One glaringly frustrating con 3/5
Does not list the network that a tv series is on. I learn about a series I want to watch all the time, go to this app to learn more about it, but can’t find anywhere, in any of the info about it, where I need to go to watch the series.
So painfully annoying.
Use a lot!! 5/5
I depend on imdb for info I don't find anywhere else so easily found in one place like I do on IMDb. So much info, so happy they do what they do
Please bring back the "Not Interested" option 3/5
I loved this app until they removed the "not interested" option when showing recommendations. I now have to stare at a long list of movies that I will never watch while trying to sort through the ones that I would. Please bring this option back. I thought updates were supposed to improve the app not make it worse... Whoever's decision was to change that needs to be fired. ;-)
Great, Useful App 5/5
I use IMDb all the time after I watch a movie, TV episode, etc. and I love it. It's perfect for anything entertainment related and I recommend this app to any movie lovers. In order to keep track of every movie and show I have seen, I add them to my watchlist, and after viewing a movie, I always rate it and occasionally write a review. Overall this is a great app. 5/5 Stars
Edit: I am still giving 5/5 stars for this app, but there has been even more stuffing of votes lately with regards to 1* ratings on Breaking Bad and The Walking Dead especially. Over the past few months, most episodes of TWD have fell around .2-.3 stars each, which is ridiculous considering the fact that older episodes should not be decreasing in ratings this much. Meanwhile, episodes of the overrated Game of Thrones are given 10’s every episode by so many fake accounts. This is hurting the validity of IMDb ratings and I hope that they can do something about these fake votes.
My tv and movie bible! 5/5
Before I watch anything, I go to IMDB to see all of the info. I decide what I will watch by the reviews as well as the actors involved. I enjoy much time reading about actors and directors through the bio and trivia sections. Honestly, I’m addicted!
"Not Interested" Button Missing 4/5
I got the latest update, and now the "Not Interested" button is missing from the "Recommended for You" list. Turns out, according to an employee on the support team, this isn't a bug but an intentional change. This is NOT an improvement, and I'm about to give all these movies 1 star just to get them off my list. Please bring this back. Otherwise, I LOVE this app and its ability to keep track of all my movie lists and update in real time. One suggestion: I'd love to get notifications of new trailers of release date changes for all the movies in my Watchlist.
Great information source 4/5
By JMO HMS
The IMDb app is great. It would good if the data included
1.) the original broadcasting network for television shows
2.) details on the producing studio
3.) where to watch covered all services/venues.
By Mr caigcyhdfg
This app is amazing, but what I love the most is the watchlist function. I’ve been using that for years and it’s so helpful to keep track of all the movies I’m interested in watching!
Rather like watching an incredibly self-indulgent French sci fi film that might have been created in the 1950s had the tech been available. A couple of plot leaps of faith did not help. But it was beautifully filmed. Just soak up the photography and effects, be patient and wait for Harrison Ford to appear when the film finally approaches a reasonable level of plot liveliness.
This is one of my favorite apps. Keep up the good work
Why no Apple TV App 5/5
I love this app. Why have they not put it on Apple TV?
Wifi only? 2/5
I love IMDb and the app interface is great..... but the app only works when I'm connected to wifi. I have cellular turned on. I've tried all the obvious things; restarting the app, deleting and downloading again, checking my data and wifi settings, but nothing works. I either get an error message or the indefinitely spinning wheel of doom.
Long time forever fan 5/5
By Jesse Davis Crossland
I have been using IMDB since it's creation. What better way to prove a loved wrong about a certain actor being in a movie or tv show than IMDB?! Plus, I live for the trivia section. Plus the intrusive, MUST KNOW part of my personality loves seeing who they've been married, engaged and divorced from. I use this app more than social media. I'm ready to move to LA but I'm stuck in Kansas City, so this app helps make it through until I can pursue my own dreams.
YOU RUINED IT 1/5
You took away what I loved even more than the info. The wonderful people talking with each other about what we love so much. Now it’s just a sterile place with words.
I use the IMDb app every single day. I would work for this company if I could!
I'm sure this will fall on deaf ears but please bring back the forums.
N. H. P 4/5
Never Have Problems with this app. Very easy the BEST movies information app out there! Not perfect but really dang close to it.!.!.!
Honestly I love IMDB itnisnthe best app to use. I don't know what I'll do without it.
This app keeps freezing for me! Has been happening for so long . Please update it . I can’t hit the ‘back button’ or scroll down
Best Film App 4/5
Great app and website, but the ads are ofter completely overdone and annoying.
Too Complicated 2/5
The latest version is too complicated. I don't know this is on purpose but is ridiculous what one has to go through define both theaters and showtimes.
My Go-To Source for TV and Movies 5/5
Excellent, mind-boggling database.
Pop up ads 2/5
After many years of use & totally loving this app, I was saddened to see full page pop up ads. I would have loved the option to pay to avoid these. I really don't care for the change.
Watchlist gone 1/5
Thanks to the latest update, my watchlist is now empty. Wonderful.
No credibility 1/5
IMDB is a wealth of information when it comes to movies and tv. No one can deny that. However with all the fake reviews that are constantly uploaded to boost a new movies rating it's completely lost any shred of credibility that they may have owned. Case in point is the recent Blade Runner movie. What a snooze fest. 2 hours and 40 minutes of a lame plot and slower than molasses in January. I find that from now on I'll avoid IMdB unless I want to read the parents guide cause that's about the only thing factual left on this APP.
So terrible. Don't know why I even finished it. Wish zero stars was possible.
By Great Savage
Problem resolved - THANKS! 5/5
By The Blonde Cookie
UPDATE: I didn't return to update this review because I've never had a developer contact me before about something I wrote. I was STUNNED and amazed (in a good way) to be contacted and asked if everything was ok, was there an error code. THANK YOU to IMDB for checking with me!
I don't know what happened, whether it was dumb luck, years (and YEARS) of plugging away at software, or what. I deleted the app, totally restarted my phone (including turn off-on), downloaded the app again, and was able to get back in my account. I'm SO relieved, I've been using the account/app for a looooong time, and I have loved it over the years.
I actually feel sorry for all the developers working with Apple's (blankety-blank) unstable IOS - WHAT a PIB that must be! Every release has NEW issues and problems. Yuck! Kudos to you, IMDB, for actually caring about your customers. Many thanks for years of pleasure.
I had the app on my iPhone 6 Plus for a while, then had to delete it briefly. Just downloaded it and CAN ~NOT~ log in with my IMDB account (as opposed to Amazon or Facebook). I do DON'T choose to log in with other apps, not Amazon, do NOT bother with Facebook for the past 1.5 years. I'm using IOS 10.3.3. All I get is this dumb trailer that plays. What the HECK???
So what? I'm stuck, can't get into my account anymore? BOOOO HISSSSS!!!! That STINKS!
IMDB continues to show it censorship side by not including all the movies in their database. How sad. The MULLY Movie 2017 is missing like many movies of High Morals.
I love the app... 5/5
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.
Beauty and the Beast 3/5
By Dart Tart
Enjoyable film. I want to correct a comment in the goofs. It was stated that Belle couldn’t have remembered the room size since she was a baby the last time she was there. The line was, “It’s smaller than I expected.” She imagined it would have been larger.
Too many ads. 2/5
This app has been hijacked by ads.
Great go to app. Use it all the time, thank you.
There have only been a couple of times I have searched and not found info of what I was looking for. I suggest the site to friends all the time.
Thanks again IMDB
Freezes all the time now 2/5
The iOS 11-compliant update is a mess. It freezes all the time, crashes, and is generally buggy as heck.
When navigating backward in the app is too slow.
The very best ! 5/5
Every thing you need to know about actors, movies and television stars
Ads Galore 1/5
Intrusive ads everywhere! Ads get in the way of everything. Ads, ads, and nothing but ads.
Best application 5/5
This app is a must. I use it in a weekly basis. Never fails me.
Still use it daily 5/5
At least once a day.
Well done 5/5
An amazingly well made documentary. Film is very well done. Must see!
Perfect for movie lovers 5/5
By Luke Seven
Love the app, no problems with it, just good all around.
