IMDb Rolls Out Android App
Amazon.com’s Internet Movie Database (IMDb) has launched an Android app and a new mobile and social feature called "IMDb Everywhere."
IMDb’s Movies & TV App for Google Android devices features voice search, sharing and option menus. The Android app allows users to look up local movie show times, TV listings, watch trailers, buy movies and share.
IMDb’s new "Like" and "Share" buttons allow users to indicate their favorite movies, TV shows, actors and publish their preferences on Facebook and Twitter.
IMDb has added "Like" and "Share" buttons to all movie trailers, character pages and news stories on the site.
IMDb has also launched a Twitter page @imdbbot that allows users to tweet a question about a celebrity name or movie and receive an answer.
"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."
