Posted on 1-Jul-2010 10:43 | Tags Filed under: News



IMDb.com, Inc. has announced IMDb Movies & TV App for Android as well as its new mobile and social initiative, “IMDb Everywhere.”

Via the IMDb Movies & TV app on the iPhone, iPod touch iPad and Android, as well as social integrations on Facebook and Twitter, users can now discover, view and share IMDb content whether they are online on a PC or using their preferred mobile device.

“We’re making a significant commitment to our ‘IMDb Everywhere’ initiative, expanding our footprint across the web and onto emerging technologies and platforms,” said Col Needham, IMDb founder and CEO. “Our customers want to socially engage with IMDb’s comprehensive and authoritative entertainment content anywhere they are – from IMDb.com to their mobile phone to Facebook and Twitter.”

IMDb’s Movies & TV App for Android-powered devices is custom-made for the Android platform, optimizing the user interface based on the capabilities of the platform. Functionality includes voice search, sharing, option menus and much more. As with IMDb’s other apps, users can search and browse its large entertainment database, look up local movie show times and TV listings, watch trailers, shop, share and much more.

According to the company, in just six months, the IMDb’s Movies & TV app for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad has been installed by millions of users worldwide and is being downloaded at a rate of nearly 1 million per month. IMDb’s Movies &TV App for iPad, which gives customers mobile access to the most comprehensive movie and TV database on the web as well as high-resolution video, is frequently ranked in the Top 10 on the iTunes Top Free Apps chart within the Entertainment category.

IMDb’s new “Like” and “Share” buttons further expand the IMDb experience, making it easy for users to indicate their favorite movies, TV shows and celebrities and then publish their preferences on Facebook and Twitter.

IMDb.com is part of the Amazon.com, Inc. group of companies.
