IMDb Finally Releases App For iPhone and iPod Touch

MV5BMTgyNDkzMzA1NV5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTcwMzcxODQwMw@@._V1_iPhone and iPod Touch users rejoice! Are you tired of cursing the programming gods because you have to use clunky Safari in order to look up what ever happened to Jennifer Grey or remember the name of your favorite Sylvester Stallone movie? Well, the smart cats over at the Internet Movie Database (IMDb to us locals) finally decided to put their heads together and come up with a coherent, iPhone friendly app for browsing their site.

No longer do we have to backdoor through Wikipanion or Movies App. Instead, the IMDb app is slick, and one could even say that it’s easier to navigate than the site itself. Nothing is watered down either. Users get the same access in the app as they would on the regular website, including:

• Over 1.5 million movie and TV titles
•  Over 3.2 million celebrities
•  US movie showtimes
•  Trailers
•  Photos
•  US TV listings
•  Top ranked movies (MOVIEmeter)
•  Top ranked celebrities (STARmeter)
•  Celebrity birthdays
•  US Box Office results
•  Movies coming soon
•  Top 250 rated films of all time

Best of all is that the app comes 100% free (which makes sense, considering that the site itself is free). IMDb is currently available in the iTunes App Store, so go grab it now, and be grateful that we live in an age of such jaw-dropping technology.

    it is a bit rough at places (very minimal things) but it makes browsing the IMDB a breeze. It definitely needs to be made available for the rest of the world too. Thanks!
