IMDB apps updated with social network integration, global movie showtimes


Moviegoers love the free IMDB apps for iOS. Between the huge, searchable database of movies and actors, the reviews, and the ability to look up movie showtimes in the US, it's no surprise that the app is downloaded over a million times per month.

Things just got even better for IMDB users. A new update of the apps for iPhone and iPad released today now expands movie showtimes to a dozen more countries: UK, Canada, Australia, Italy, France, Germany, Spain, Portugal, Mexico, New Zealand, Chile and Argentina. The home screen now shows the latest available trailers for upcoming and newly released movies, as well as expanded entertainment news coverage.

Hard core professional IMDB users with IMDB Pro accounts can now log into their accounts from the apps to access contact and representation info, and the iPhone app will be able to dial those contacts. IMDB has included social network integration into the apps by letting Facebook users log in using their accounts and enabling Facebook and Twitter updates from the apps.

The updated version of the IMDB app is available in the App Store now, and will show up as an update if you already have it installed.
