IMDb for WM is Back!
Posted August 1, 2010 at 12:00 am by egzthunder1
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!
