Improve your IMDB experience on the iPhone with Movie Genie

The double tap zoom of the imdb.com via Safari doesn't work the best.

The double tap zoom of the imdb.com via Safari doesn't work the best.

One of the few sites that has disappointed me when viewing via iPhone’s Safari browser is IMDB (Internet Movie Database) – which is a real shame as that’s one of the sites I visit most via my mobile (usually right after I’ve finished watching a film so I can read up on the trivia – or to find out what film I’ve seen that actor in before).

My only issue with the IMDB website on the iPhone is the fact that when you double tap the appropriate content (namely the main body or the cast list) it doesn’t zoom in too well (ie. either not enough or way to much). I appreciate you can manually zoom in, but its not as convenient as the double tap – it’s not how the iPhone is designed to be used.

I’d performed a few searches for IMDB in the app store but nothing useful showed up. Then somehow (I can’t remember how) I found Movie Genie.

Movie Genie acts as a front end to IMDB for the iPhone, and it works really well.

Its quick and easy to access the trivia, cast list and other details regarding all the films viewable via the IMDB web site.

If you use the IMDB web site via the iPhone its well worth buying this app.
