IMDb Android app update brings major redesign, trailers, global showtimes, and more

The official IMDb app for Android just got a big update, and it does not disappoint. Along with a complete design-overhaul, the app has been stuffed full of IMDb goodness to the point that it's now more enjoyable to use than the actual website itself. The redesign is very sleek. They've basically taken the original palette and layout, expanded it all, and turned up the sexy. As nice as it...

IMDb for Windows Phone 7 reviewed, very yellow indeed (video)

As one of the highest-rated and most-downloaded WP7 apps, IMDb might just be the most popular yellow app in the world. It's a nice yellow, though, a golden, orangey tone. Anyway, I digress: IMDb for Windows Phone 7 is excellent. It provides, with a couple of flicks, everything a film buff might need. In the video review (after the break), I take a quick stroll through each of IMDb's main...

A gallery of high-res Windows Phone 7 app screenshots

While I wasn't one of the handful of Chosen Ones to attend the Windows Phone 7 launch in London yesterday, I have been lucky enough to get my hands on some lovely screenshots of WP7 apps. So far, most major websites have only run photos-of-handsets, complete with skewed angles and glaring reflections. With these images, you can see what the interface of some big-name apps really look like --...

Seven essential apps for your iPad

Like every modern mobile device, the iPad is only as good as the apps you have running on it. Sure, Apple's entry into the tablet market comes packing a decent Web browser, mail client, and photo viewer, but with apps at your side, the iPad can be transformed from an expensive couch-browser into a truly useful tool. So, for those of you who've just bagged yourself a shiny new iPad, or if you're...

HelloMovies helps you quickly find what movies to watch

HelloMovies is a quick and easy-to-use website for filtering the enormous glut of films into a more manageable list of stuff you might actually enjoy watching. Using a simple sidebar filter, you can quickly whittle down the complete list of films by genre, style, approximate release date (very approximate – think "1990's"), language, and even by films that won a major award. Once you narrow...

IMDb celebrates its 19th birthday

The Internet Movie Database turned 19 yesterday. If you're scratching your head wondering how the IMDb can be older than the web, you'll notice that the first initial is I, not W. That's because the iconic destination for information about films and TV shows actually predates the web. In fact, the earliest version of the technology behind the IMDb was a set of scripts for searching the USENET...

IMDB adds video: Full length TV shows, movies

For years, the Internet Movie Database has been the go-to spot for information about movies, TV shows, actors, directors, and all sorts of other information related to the entertainment industry. But over the last few years as online video started to take over the web, there was one thing conspicuously absent from IMDB: video. Now that's all changed, as IMDB's parent company Amazon has rolled...

Comcast launches Fancast internet video portal (again)

Comcast has officially launched its online video portal Fancast, you know the same web site the company kinda launched last August? What's different this time around is that Comcast is building out a new plan called "Project Infinity" to make video on demand available via the web, your set top box, or pretty much anywhere else you want it. Oh yeah, and Comcast CEO Brian Roberts is speaking at...

Comcast launches Fancast media portal

Comcast has launched Fancast, a new online media portal that's best described as an IMDB challenger with way more multimedia, and a generally less useful interface. Fancast does have some good ideas. You can type in the name of an actor, movie, TV show, or director and Fancast pulls up a biography, photos, and videos. You can also buy movie tickets through Comcast-owned Fandango or play "six...
