IMDb for WM is Back!

We hate to see good projects stop, or seeing that devs announce final versions when we know that there are always improvements to be done. Worry not! The popular WM app IMDb mobile is back with a new version, which was just released by XDA member Blade0rz.

Do you need to know who was the actor in that movie that you were discussing with your workmates over your lunch break? Are facts that you wish to know about movies hunting you day and night? Do you have the name of that character in the tip of your tongue but it just won’t roll off? These are some of the things that you can do with IMDb, and the mobile version does the same thing, but on your WM device. The new version comes loaded with fixes and updates, so if you liked the app before, make sure that you get it while it’s hot!

v0.7 – Changelog

  • Interaction with HTTP is now rewritten. Hopefully will remove all ObjectDisposedExceptions.
  • Added GZip Compression. Should be faster on slower connections.
  • Added “Recent Searches”
  • Added skinning support. Two themes installed by default
  • Added finger-friendly “pressed” state for buttons.
  • Added simple data caching
  • Reduced memory footprint
  • Fixed TV episodes. Lists episodes by season, episode air date & click-through for more details on each episode
  • Fixed person filmography – now lists all roles as Director, Producer, Actor, Self, etc.
  • Fixed quotes display issues. Some quotes still get cut off…still looking into this
  • Fixed some localisation bugs
  • Fixed settings dialog
  • Changed all icons to better quality ones and got rid of the nasty pixelated fader at the top. Icons now use alpha transparency & fader is native GDI code.
  • Animated loading screen

You can get more information in the application thread.

Material and Material Dark Hit Samsung’s Theme Store

The latest version of Touchwiz, launched alongside the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge, was aimed at providing a vastly improved software experience in lieu of the bad reputation its predecessors had gained. While this iteration turned out to be a vast improvement in terms of lack of bloatware, fluidity and user experience, Samsung's OEM skin fell short in the aesthetics department by a long shot, abandoning a plethora of Material Design principles and leaving users wanting more. However, Theme Store...

There comes a sad time in everyone's life where you must part ways with your gadgets.
