1.0 out of 5 stars Doesn't work on Kindle Fire HD anymore April 1, 2013
I used to have this app on my Kindle Fire HD and it was great. I use the web site and the iPhone app all the time to get info on movies, tv shows, actors etc. It's a great reference. However, the other day it stopped working on the Kindle Fire HD and now it's says it's not compatable with my device. So, what's the deal?

I am starting to think I should have gone with the iPad as it has several apps that I would like to see available on the Kindle Fire HD.

5.0 out of 5 stars I've Got an Even Better Tip July 16, 2011
This is a good app. It doesn't do anything that IMDB on your laptop or desktop doesn't do identically. However, if you want to experience a genius use of IMDB, install the Google Chrome Browser onto your laptop or desktop. Then add the free IMDB extension for that browser. Next time you are reading about a tv show or movie, highlight it with your cursor. All of a sudden, the extension lights up on your toolbar with a red number. That number is the rating for the movie or tv show. If you want to read more, click on that red number and a new tab will open and you are there on the very page and can read the synopsis, reviews, cast list, etc., I use it every single day.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not too impressed June 7, 2011
Verified Purchase
The IMDb app doesn't really add anything that you couldn't get from the IMDb mobile website already, and since there is no offline mode there really isn't any point. This is just another app front end to a web site.

5.0 out of 5 stars USEFUL March 24, 2011
I find myself using this all the time. It's straightforward, and its free. Couldn't ask for more. I'll say it's fast, and i've enjoyed using it. Can't imagine this app not being on someones phone.

2.0 out of 5 stars Came on Kindle Fire, but not so good. June 12, 2012
When I bought my KF it came preloaded with the IMDb app. I was excited and was anxious to use it. It didn't take long to completely hate it. In any case, Amazon now says it's not compatible, so my assumption is that the app was upgraded and doesn't work well on KF now. In truth, I wouldn't know because of the reason I stated before; I don't like it, so I don't use it anymore and let me tell you why.

* It only displays the abbreviated version of IMDb and is difficult to navigate. I love the Trivia items and it is a pain in the neck to find the link on any given page.
* Unlike using the web browser, you cannot search the page for text. When you are perusing a prolific star's list of films or TV, it is very tedious looking for one lone title. Page text search is an absolute must have.
* Also it doesn't offer tabbed viewing. I like opening up various pages in separate tabs, so I don't have to constantly hit the back and forward buttons.

Really, those are my only complaints but those are all the complaints I need to make me decide to never use it again.

There is one more point I wish to make and this is in their favor. One reviewer complained saying that you still have to be connected to the net in order to use it and so found it useless. Yes, you do have to be connected but can you imagine the size of download that would contain all of that information? We're talking hundreds of thousands of pages! If you've ever tried using iBird Pro 2 you'll know right away what I'm talking about. iBird Pro 2 has less than 1,000 entries and is an enormous, time consuming, pain in the butt, download.

This was just ok. Nothing special. It could use some more refining to make it function better. I don't know if I will keep it or not.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome. February 19, 2013
Verified Purchase
There have many times when watching a movie or TV show when we've wanted some details about what we were watching - maybe we saw a familiar face on screen in an early bit part and wanted to identify the actor, or we wanted to check out whether a soundtrack was available - whatever, IMDb is the place to go. I've used this app on my smartphone for years, and installed it recently on my wife's tablet to give her the same experience. We love it, and if you watch as many movies as we do, you'll love it too.

The only problem I have with viewing any trailers(movie app IMDb) on my Kindle Fire is that it will start, then it will stop and then start again.
