The IMDb mobile app will provide users with all of the information they could possibly want concerning movies, television shows, as well as the actors involved.

 

Introduction

IMDb, or Internet Movie Database, actually began as a hobby. A movie buff named Col Needham started the database in 1987. IMDb actually began in usenet with participators compiling their own list of actors and movies. Needham, a computer programmer pulled together all these lists as other film fans continued to participate. In time this became what is now known as IMDb. IMDb is the largest Internet movie database online. It includes sections for movies, actors, and also television shows. It became a website in 1990 with Amazon purchasing the site in 1988. Even today, this website continues to grow and is now taking place on mobile apps.

The IMDb mobile app allows users to find show times for their favorite programs, browse through image galleries, and add their own reviews for their favorite movies and television shows. The biggest purpose of the website and also the mobile app is to provide every piece of information for every movie ever made. This includes actors, ratings, trailers, reviews, and much, much more. IMDb database holds more than 2 million movies and television program titles and more million entries on celebrities, actors and directors.

This is part of what makes this such a great application for movie buffs of all kinds. Any information imaginable pertaining to movies or television can be found by using this application. Itís possible to search through a list of ratings for all movies also. At first, the user may believe that IMDb only provides information about movies. However, that is not the case as the same amount of information can also be found for television programs. In fact, they provide extensive information for television programs. Users will even be able to find a current schedule for television programming as well as full episode synopsis. Fortunately, any time there is a spoiler this app will make the user is aware so they can decide whether to continue reading or not.

Trailers and Video Quality

While searching for information for your favorite movies or television programs, itís possible to watch trailers and teasers for that program. A user is correct to assume that since this is the largest movie database available, it is also the largest database of movie trailers that can be found.

With all of the trailers and previews available with this application, users will have no problem deciding what they would like to watch.

It is also very easy to navigate from one movie to the next, one television program to the next, or one after to the next as all of the information is interlinked very well.

Verdict

Most movie buffs are big fans of the IMDb website. Users will be pleased to know the app is just as informative, in fact more so. This application is very organized making it easy to research movies before deciding to watch. Additionally, there is no shortage of user reviews to get the opinions of other people before making a decision. With an application that is so easy to use and provides so much information, we have no problem giving it a full five stars.
