IMDB, the Internet Movie DataBase, has released an Android application, providing Android users to find showtimes, watch trailers, browse photos, get TV listings, track DVD/Blu-Ray releases, explore popular charts and top 100/250 lists, and search their database of over 1.5 million movies and TV shows.
Personally, I’m very excited for this release (and have been waiting for this since Day 1 of my Android ownership) as IMDB is a service I use almost religiously. I like knowing lots of information about what I just watched, am currently watching, or am going to watch, and sharing that information with friends. Nerdy, yes, but knowing the Android community, I think it’s safe to say that several of you will be as excited as I am for this release.
For a 1.0 release, the IMDB app is very clean and really has almost all of the information that can be found on the website, plus it still has you covered when the information isn’t in the application. At the bottom of each screen, IMDB gives you the option to view the IMDB web for more information, and even the ability purchase the movie/TV show through Amazon.com. Additionally, everything in the IMDB app seemed to flow pretty well, and stuff just works. Trailers launched immediately, the text formats perfectly on the screen, and the main menu and sub-menus are laid out very well. In short, IMDB looks and feels very solid for a 1.0 release.
At the very least, the free IMDB app is certainly worth trying for yourself. Head over to the Android market or scan the barcode above to download and try it out for yourself. In the mean time, enjoy the images below.
