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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty Good, but room for improvement July 16, 2011
Verified Purchase
Okay there was just an update, so some of this may have been addressed. I love the app when looking for a movie, and I am kind of an IMDb junkie so in general like the tool.
The thing that was bugging me was the news feeds. They would get stale, and couldn't figure out how to refresh (and I am talking by weeks not hours).
So that may have been addressed in the last release.
Also would be nice to attach to Amazon more(since it is owned by them) so I could watch directly or see pricing easier but I may just not know how to work that.
The trailer stream great even at 3G which is good when you got to entertain a 4 yo for a few minutes.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the greatest websites at your fingertips! January 2, 2012
As has already been stated, this is really just another version of the mobile website, however I think that it has slightly better performance. I prefer the app layout to the mobile theme because it just looks a little cleaner.

That being said, IMDb is one of those websites that I can't live without. Before I discovered IMDb, something or someone would come up in conversation and we would rack our brains trying to remember an actor's name or the name of the TV show that was being discussed. Usually we wouldn't remember it and then sometime, days later even, in the middle of something completely unrelated, the name would pop into my head... Alan Tudyk! THAT'S IT!. With IMDB, I can easily find what I'm looking for an get the answer immediately, rather than days (or weeks) later.

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.

Visit my blog with link given on my profile page here or use this phonetically given URL (livingasseniors dot blogspot dot com). Friday's entry will always be weekend entertainment recs from my 5 star Amazon reviews in film, tv, books and music. These are very heavy on buried treasures and hidden gems. My blogspot is published on Monday, Wednesday & Friday.

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Helps a lot in Father / Son movie debates July 5, 2013
Verified Purchase
Have used it a few times, seems a decent app, and when you have a son who's as argumentative as mine (he gets it from his mother), can be a handy thing to have to resolve disagreements over things like cast, plot, etc.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Movie App! February 12, 2012
IMDb is a great app for the Kindle Fire! You can review movies, showtimes in your city, and create reviews for the movies you see. Preloaded on the Fire, this app is great for movie goers! You must create an IMDb account to submit reviews and overall this app provides great trailers and descriptions of movies which may prevent you from spending your hard earned money on a dud movie!

Cannot remove the IMDb app from my Kindle Fire HD
I too would love to remove some of the apps I will never ever use. ( IMDb for one). They take up space I would rather use for something I really want. Why are we not allowed to choose for ourselves what we want? I am sorry I bought the Kindle.

IMDB app not working (parental control?)
I am having the same issue. If i turn parental controls off, IMDB app works fine, turn them on, and I get "parental controls stopped unexpectedly..." Hoping for a fix, Amazon.

why can't I watch videos on my kindle fire?
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. This, I believe has something to do with how strong or weak the internet connection is. The wiring in my apartment is very old. Probably never got... Read More
