IMDb iOS App Adds Amazon Prime Instant Video Links

By: Josh Wolford - February 19, 2013

The Internet Movie Database (IMDb) has updated its iOS app to provide seamless functionality with Amazon’s Prime Instant Video app.

With the new version, any TV show or movie that’s available to stream using Prime Instant Video will feature a link on its IMDb page. This feature has been available on for some time now.

All you have to do is click the “Watch Now on Amazon Prime Instant Video” button and you’ll be taken to that title on the Prime Instant Video app. This update applies to both the iPhone and the iPad.

As you may remember, Amazon bought IMDb back in 1998.

That’s not the only thing to ship with today’s update. the IMDb app now sports a new Oscars section as well.

Here’s the full list of what’s new today:

  • Titles available on Amazon Prime feature a link to watch if the Amazon Instant Video app is also installed (iPhone/iPad)
  • Special Oscars® section: list of nominees and photos from the red carpet and ceremony and live winners on iPhone and iPad during the ceremony
  • Recommendations: tap on the “i” in the corner of the poster to see why it’s recommended for you, rate the title if you’ve seen it, or indicate “not interested” (iPad)
  • Improved accessibility for TV episode navigation (iPad)
  • Updates to side navigation (iPad)
  • Bug fixes include episode picker in VoiceOver (iPad)

You can grab the new version right now on iTunes.

    Have you ever thought about including a little bit more than just your articles?
    I mean, what you say is important and everything.
    However think about if you added some great images or video clips to give your posts more, “pop”!
    Your content is excellent but with pics and videos, this website could definitely
    be one of the most beneficial in its niche.
    Fantastic blog!
