IMDb’s Android and iOS App Now Lets You Buy Movie Tickets
The IMDb app has been updated for Android and iOS to support the ability to buy tickets for movies for U.S. users. By adding the ability to buy movie tickets, IMDb is now competing directly against Fandango. Competing against Fandango will be a challenge for IMDb because Fandango has deep integration with Apple Siri.
When you tap the “buy” link on the iPhone or iPad app, you will be taken to the Amazon.com Mobile app with a search for the movie that you are looking at all. Amazon.com owns IMDb.
IMDb updated their iPhone app to have one-tap access to the full cast and filmography lists. There is extensive “watch list” support for future movie viewing.
