Please bring back age display 1/5
I’ve been using IMDB since forever. First on a PC, currently on the iPhone app. Removing the actor’s age, specifically from the iPhone app is a questionable modification. When looking at the various actor’s information, birthday is nice but a quick age display lets me zip throug various actors without having to resort to math to get their age. You display the age for those that passed away, why not display the age of the living? Please bring back that feature.
I just installed the 8.8 update. Didn’t fix the age display that many users are asking to be restored. I’m taking away another star.
Installed the latest update 8.9.
Still no age display that many users are asking to be restored. Why take it away?
Losing another star.
Installed the latest update 8.9.1.
Still no age display restoration.
Your excuse for removing the age was..,
“We’ve removed ages for living persons from Name pages in order to unify our experience across web and apps”. That excuse is ridiculous as the age display was in the app and I believe the web version for a long time. I’ve been using IMDB for years, first the web site, then, once I got an iPhone, the iPhone app.
Please put the age back in the iPhone app and web site. I mean, you display the age in the “Born Today” section, why not in the main page for the Name page?
I’ve been a programmer for over 30 years and if I was told to remove something as simple as an age display, I would comment out the code because I believe the feature would be put back after enough people bitched about it being removed. I believe that if you actually polled your users they would want the age display restored.
Oh, I’ve taken away another star.
I do really like the app. I use it constantly to look up actors and movies. At many times I’ve found myself on the web site or app for over an hour or more. I want to restore your stars.
Keeps me up to date. 5/5
I always find the info I’m looking for plus more.
Getting worse… 3/5
Great app, except for the fact that they inexplicably removed the age of all the actors, which makes it a little inconvenient. Why? It's still there for deceased actors…
The Best 5/5
OLD , NEW or coming soon there is no better than IMDb to find it!!
The best ever, when it comes to VIDEO entertainment!
Last update has BIG GLITCH 1/5
Unfortunately since today's update I am unable to move from the Home screen to Movies, TV, Celebs, etc.. I used the app earlier today before the update and it worked fine. After the update it isn't working at all. Hope it's fixed soon so that I can give the app a decent rating and review again.
Complete Movie/Film Resource 5/5
IMDB is absolutely my go to for all things film. The ratings and reviews are correct and thorough but not wordy. Leaves me with just enough info to pursue a new show or add to my list to watch later! Brilliant!
Great App with Oversights 5/5
By WordBrain Fiend
This is such a wonderful resource, and is extremely useful and detailed, but there are some major oversights which I hope will someday be rectified.
1. IMDb absolutely is the most popular reference site for film and television, but Amazon Prime absolutely isn’t the most popular reference for streaming. Those facts being in evidence, regardless of which company owns which services, a user should be able to look up a movie on IMDb and be shown whether the title can be streamed on any of the popular streaming services.
2. In lieu of rectification 1, users might settle for this: text-copying functionality.
Here’s hoping the powers-that-be read and take heed.
Age Removed 1/5
Would you guys please put the age data back into the app ? I can’t understand you would have birthdates but removed the age. If I want to see how old someone is I have to calculate from the person’s birthdate how old they are. It makes NO sense why this was removed. Please put it back.
Love this app, but..... 3/5
I have been using this app for some time now and find it to be packed with information. I find myself referring to it on a regular basis while watching a movie. The one thing that recently has become an annoyance is the pop up prompt to sign in! I think it’s ludicrous to even consider having to sign in to view information that is public and all over the Internet anyhow. If IMDB continues to try and force people to sign in, when you are only viewing information and not writing a review, then I will end up deleting the app. My rating would have been 5 stars if not for this issue.
By Portland Promise
Solid app. IMDb is a constant source of reference.
Had information I need! 5/5
Always has information I need before I rent or buy a movie that I am unsure of.
Why even look somewhere else? 5/5
By Ric Valentino
If I’m watching a movie, and want to know more about a character, or filming location, I go straight to IMBD. There is no alternative!
Would not recommend 2/5
When u search up free movies this app anit free u have to go to amazon prime and buy it do not download for your own sake
It’s definitely the best 4/5
And most thorough movie app/database. The app has so much info and yet, it’s still easy to find everything. The only thing I don’t like are the ads before the trailers. It’s like, here watch this ad before you watch an ad for this movie.
Useful info, minor bug fixed 5/5
I use this app a lot and love it. It is great for researching movies, remakes, actors and so on, and has reasonable international coverage (could use more detail on Korean media — AsianWiki would be a good tie).
Worth noting that the developer is quite responsive. Previously I’d noted that the search memory was not staying, but that has been fixed.
Bring back the TV LISTING’S!!!!!! 5/5
Love IMDb I wanted to slam them from pulling the tv listings on the site as it was the best layout online but I’ll look past that for the deep database of everything entertainment.
My favorite go to site! 5/5
My favorite site for all my entertainment information!
No Sign In with Google option in iPhone app 1/5
When I use IMDb in browser I have the option to sign in with my google account. When using the app, my only options are Amazon or Facebook. When I use my gmail info to sign in manually IMDb doesn’t recognize my password... I just want access to my lists.
Playback issue 3/5
By Analog gibes
In landscape, it’s nearly impossible to grab the playhead.
Fantastic Asset To Move Goers! 5/5
By play h4 fun
I have been a fan for years to this awesome, clearly written, informative website. Easily accessible, user friendly!
Great movie updates and awesome info about different actors.
If you could take an x-ray of entertainment, you would find IMDb. This is the blood and bones of the industry. I found this ocean of trivia because I’m one of those people that asks, “Oh, who IS that?” Annoying, maybe. But we’re out there. And this is where we go for answers. Can’t find anything to watch on TV? Go to IMDb and browse. This is a must have app!
Miles to Go 5/5

A fine indy film by Tim Russ.
Love it! Love it! 5/5
By Emerald Faerie
I love IMDB. It is very informative about anything about movies from oldest to newest, about actors, etc. It is worth to have this apps. One improvement I would like to see is the release dates for DVD.
My go to for information 5/5
Seems to always have the answer.
Wonderful for EVERYTHING!!!!!!!!! 5/5
By SSOPT 1
This app is awesome!! It’s soooooooooooo simple to work and is 1,000,000,000 X better than Fandango!! U really should download it it’s worth it!!!!!!!😀😀😀😇😇😅
It’s good but… 3/5
By The other Tyler Durden
When is the IMDB quiz game going to be playable again?
I like to search for movies or people but sometimes I don’t get enough information.
Just Fabulous! 5/5
By Jacqui A
Anything or anyone you want information on in movies or TV, you will find it here. It’s all cross referenced with links to and from everything. I was amazed that I could even look up an early episode of Law and Order and get the complete cast list. There are plot information, trivia, everything to keep you spending lots and lots of time with this app.
Review app review app 5/5
This is a review of an app that reviews things.
The Florida Project 1/5
The most boring movie I have ever seen. I can not believe I watched the entire thing. I kept thinking it would get better. it did not.
Great website Really bad app. 1/5
Like most people, really enjoy researching films and actors. But, the app is irritating and filled with unneeded hurdles in order to use it.
Its actually easier to simply use your browser and add IMDb to a question then use the app.
Easy to Navigate 5/5
Love this ap, easy to navigate. I use it all the time.
Video downloads consume cell budget 3/5
I don’t like that this app automatically downloads and plays video. That consumes my limited data budget with data I usually don’t want. Video should download and play only upon user’s request.
More & More Ads 1/5
The amount of ads has become absurd.
Vicar of Dibley 5/5
After repeated viewings, it’s still hilarious! A full cast of wonderful characters makes it always fresh and delightful!
I love this app
Awesome app! 5/5
For anyone that’s ever asked, “who is this person, in this show?”, IMDB has the answer for you, instantly! I’d encourage you to download this app today if you’re in need of answers, to those burning questions. Lol.
Fantastic app... 5/5
Great app! Always works!
Movie lovers dream 5/5
My go to resource for everything film related. If you love or even like the movies you must have this app.
Everything lands 5/5
So in the reviews everything seems to land between 6.3 and 7.9 when the tomato meter seems to provide a more accurate detail
I like the app but..... 3/5
It used to have the ages of the stars at the top of their page but now it's just their birthday. Now you have to figure it out like it used to be 🙄
MAKE IT SO WE CAN WATCH THE STUFF ON IT 3/5
By Slither .io
I like this app it is really good for looking up movies and tv shows and I really love it but I really wish we could just watch them on this app as well because it’s very annoying having to download another app to watch the show plz plz plz do this and if you I will give you all five stars thank you
iOS 11.3 broke it.
Best Movie Guide Out There 5/5
By Austin R. Grant
Anything you need to know about the film industry. Love this app!
No Split View Support - I use the browser 1/5
The title says it: There is no Split View support on my iPad Pro. This is really important for me, so I just use the Safari browser (I have IMDB bookmarked) which does support Split View. The sad thing, is that it is really easy for developers to implement Split View. For some reason Amazon just refuses to do it for IMDB. Using the browser isn’t as slick as the app would be, but without Split View, the app is virtually useless to me.
It would also be nice to have Picture-in-Picture (PiP) for trailers and such, but this is not as critical to me as Split View.
Win the trivia contest 5/5
By Bo wildhax
It’s IMDB. Come on.
Perfect to watch new and old stuff with! 5/5
By Too much to buy!
This app is the greatest thing to happen to entertainment nerds! The trivia section of a movie and/or TV show makes for awesome behind the scenes stuff
Practically useless 1/5
Reviews are completely biased, doesn’t offer information in regards to release dates on various movies.
Very little benefit to “IMDb”
