The IMDB app is one of those things you always end up installing. It's the biggest database of movies, TV episodes, and actors around, after all. Today the app is getting a big update to v3.3. This will refine a few features and add support for movie ticket purchases in the app.
Let's be real: typing your password in order to sign into an app on your phone or tablet is one of the most annoying things currently known to man to exist. It is maddening. The best way around it? Google Account sign-in - because Android lets you do it without the archaic "actually needing your password" part. On a smartphone or tablet, it just makes sense.
So, IMDB's app for Android now allows you to do that.
Following today's announcements, Amazon decided to take some time to introduce a few awesome new features those who buy from the Kindle line can expect to enjoy from their new Amazon-branded tablets. In this post, we'll take a brief look at the bevy of new features, starting with X-Ray for Movies.
Movies by Flixster has a very interesting design history. The developers behind this app are usually among the first to adopt new Android design guidelines—they had a Honeycomb-style action bar back when the Xoom was the only Android tablet around—and today it got another new refresh. The good news is that now it looks better on the Nexus 7, as opposed to the broken mess it was before. Now, for the bad news.
The Internet Movie Database, or IMDb as it's commonly known, pushed an update to its official Android app earlier today that includes some new features, including full Honeycomb support - and it looks quite good, too. The interface is very intuitive and clean, and it takes full advantage of the large display.
The update also brings movie rating, a watchlist where you can track movies and TV shows, enhanced showtimes, the ability to purchase tickets directly within the app, improved performance, and tons of bug fixes.
TV and movie geeks alike are bound to be giddy with joy today as IMDB has released their official (and free) Android app to the Android Market. We’ve provided a few screens for you take a look at below.
Overall, the app appears fully functional, and actually quite useful. You’re able to look up TV recaps, schedules, box office results, local showtimes, and movie reviews. Pressing your phone’s search button will bring up the search bar set for IMDB, eliciting results just like IMDB.com’s web-based search.
