IMDb is the world's most popular and authoritative source for movie, TV and celebrity content.
Available on: Android and IOS
Our rating: 5/5
Watch trailers, get showtimes near you, buy tickets, read critics and user reviews. In addition, you can explore popular movies and TV shows, entertainment news, and the latest rewards and events. This app allows you to personalise IMDb by letting you track what you want to watch on your Watchlist, and rate movies and TV shows you've seen.
The app is available on both Android and IOS. Go to your app store and search IMDb – it should be at the top of the list. Quickly download and install and feel free to scroll through user reviews and further information.
When you open the app, it will give you options of how to sign in/sign up – Facebook, Google, Amazon, IMDb (the website version details) or creating your own account. Once you've entered your details, IMDb will send you an email in order to verify your account and complete the registration process. Just click on the link in your email, prove to the site that you're not a robot, and you're registered. Once your registration is complete and you open the app, you will notice that the app asks permission to access your location. This was confusing at first. However, we noticed that this function exists to suit the app to your needs – the cinema feature applies to cinemas near you, and local content (relevant to you) will appear as well as global content. So don't worry, you can let them in!
Now you're on the app and there is an abundance of information and content on there. A general feed is displayed on the home page. However, if you'd like to narrow down what you're looking for, simply swipe to the right and the other pages will show you more specific content. These pages include Movies, TV, Celeb, Awards & Events.
As you continue to use the app, you will be adapting your profile account to suit your individual interests. This is done by customising your "Watchlist" and giving you extensive information, times, and reviews of the cinemas near you. As you use the app more and more, it will become more personalised to you.
If you want a very refined search there is, of course, a search option. This means you can find whatever you'd like and, in addition, you can be a contributor to the app. If you'd like, you can also rate and review movies and other entertainment content for others to see.
IMDb is an incredible way to find out more about your favourite entertainment content.
