IMDb Mobile Final Version Released
The IMDb Mobile app by Blade0rz receives information from the iPhone-targeted IMDb API to allow Windows Mobile users to find important information about their favourite films. The project has been frequently updated but last week Blade0rz announced that the newest version, 0.6, would be the last.
Despite this, the continuous development means that the application is already considerably stable. By using information from the iPhone equivalent, users can find ratings, reviews, user comments, Top 250, trivia and almost all of the other features available on the full IMDb site. Additionally, the search function is fully operational, making finding the actor, movie or TV show you’re looking for very fast and simple.
Blade0rz is also offering access to the code for a developer who would like to continue the project. Anyone interested in continuing development or in simply picking up the app for themselves should check out the thread. WVGA and VGA phones running .NET CF 3.5 are supported, and Blade0rz warns that the app downloads a lot of data.
