    So the IMDB app has not been updated for Windows Phone for over 1 year now, I am not able to use the same functions as on my android and I cannot even login to the windows phone version.

    Anyway to get their attention, there is no way to contact them directly expect to post on their community, which I have:

    I guess if you use the app like I do, you can +1 it to push it to the top and get their attention

    Have you also tried contacting them on Twitter @imdb?

    You can contact them directly through the app under 'About' > 'Feedback' which sends an email to windowsphone@imdb.com. :)

    I emailed them before but never got a reply.

    I sent an email to Amazon customer support asking when Amazon would support Windows Phone with their digital platforms, such as the Amazon Music Cloud or the Amazon Video player. I am a Prime customer, and having access to those videos on the go would be awesome...I received a canned response that said they would take the idea under consideration.

    With the tight integration with the OS and the web browser... you'd expect loads of features for it or constant updates.

    Still no update or reply, tried tweeting them aswell with no response.

    What else can we do? I don't mind the app as a while I just don't like the fact that I cannot log into my account

    Microsoft said that 2014 would be a year of focusing on app quality than quantity. The first app they need to consider is IMDb and get it in line with that of Android. IMDb is my favorite site for movies and TV shows info and I use it a lot on the laptop. Its about 2 years now and not a single update which is seriously pathetic ! Hope something is done soon, can only keep my fingers crossed.

    hope they keep their word. Flickr, Trip advisor are some other apps that haven't been updated in years. I remember Joe tweeting about Flickr (that he talked to Yahoo and there was nothing to announce).

    can I kindly request people, even those who do not use the app to put pressure on the company to update this app through this thread:

    https://getsatisfaction.com/imdb/top...etting_updates

    It would be greatly appreciated, not being able to log in and having 1000s of movies in my list is no good for me having to use my Android handset just to access one app.

    Thanks

    IMDB have ignored every attempt I have tried, twitter, their support page, they even mark threads about windows phone as answered without answering the questions, this company is disgusting.

    IMDb simply turns a deaf year towards Windows Phone users. I have contacted them in the past and never got a reply. Don't expect an update for the next 1 year at least.

    As of recently, IMDB app lost sharing with FB on my 8.1 Lumia 920... well, it's not fully lost, but it is broken; when I try to share movie from IMDB to FB, it comes across as textual link, instead of usual movie image, title etc. Quite sad. Anyone else experienced same problem..?

    I've completely switched over to Film Closet, since IMDB doesn't give a flying f*ck about their WP app.

    Here's a link, if you want to check it out: http://www.windowsphone.com/s?appid=...b-99cb6a965717

    I think IMDB is not aware of the WP8 and 8.1, they still think we'are at WP and hence ignore us. :lol:

    IMBD is owned by Amazon. So I wouldn't hold my breath getting an update for this app.

    I have been emailing them for months about the kindle app.
    Same answer everytime. Sorry bla bla .

    Amazon at the moment have had a falling out with a publishing company and are making selling books a bit difficult for them. I now wonder if Amazon has an issue with Microsoft as both windows 8.1 and windows phone either lack amazon apps, or the apps that are made are forgotten.

    may be we are not ignored. but the developers might be finding difficult time to get some developing because, they are seeing a future with WP and don't understand what to do first. thus getting confused and end up in doing everything altogether with delays.

    Doesn't make sense, imdb released several updates when WP was on v7 now WP has the most market share it ever has and growing and they are ignoring customers. How stupid a company can be

    can anybody tell me what kind of update is needed? i mean, whatever we have, is working fine. i don't know any special features of IMDB site for US, as i am in India. and whatever i am getting in the website, i am getting in the app.

    For one we cant even login. That is a major issue. For a lot of people the app is now unstable with the wp8.1 update.

    App on my phone is quite stable with wp8.1
    But surely, no login, no lists and no rating. That's true.
