Amazon-owned IMDb, the world’s largest collection of movie, TV and celebrity information, has a nicely done iPhone and iPad application available for free in the App Store that has just gotten a whole lot better in the latest version 4.5 release.
For starters, the software at last provides a bunch of useful technical specifications for movies such as the original aspect ratio, color, audio, runtime and what not.
Next, movie pages now include box office information giving you yet another indication of the movie’s popularity — that’s in addition to the previous data like review scores. Note that U.S. box office result data was previously available only via the app’s Popular Charts feature.
If you want to write a plot for an obscure movie that lacks descriptions, or maybe add interesting trivia to a television show, you can now do so directly in the mobile app, without visiting IMDb’s interface on the web.
