Windows Mobile Gets an IMDB App


IMDB, aka The Internet Movie Database, is now available on Windows Mobile Phones thanks to an independent, 3rd-party developer who posts under the name of Blade0rz on the XDA-Developers forums.

Interestingly enough, he created the app by parsing the iPhone IMDB API for information instead of the IMDB web pages themselves.

Included in this application are the following features:

  • User Ratings and Reviews
  • External Reviews
  • Search for Movies/TV/Video Games/Actors
  • DVD Covers
  • Actor Headshots
  • Trivia
  • Quotes
  • Photos
  • Top 250
  • Coming Soon List
  • Videos/Trailers
  • App-to-Date Support
  • TV Episode Listings
  • Parental Guide Info
  • Movie Certificates

He also says the app has been designed for touch-friendly interfaces and is screen/orientation independent.

The app requires the .NET framework 3.5 and can be downloaded (for free) from here. (Will require forum sign-in first).
