When we hosted our 2011 Android Central Editors' Pick Awards we chose IMDb Movies & TV as the tablet app of the year. Now, IMDb is gunning for that title again in 2012 having just released a new Android 4.0 optimized version with a new home screen layout and more:
- Improved design and experience for a variety of 7” tablets
- We greatly reduced the size of the app by removing the “Scan DVD” feature (based on customer feedback)
- The “Hardware Controls: Take Pictures & Video” permission is no longer required.
- Improved showtimes
Having sat down with the app briefly before writing it up, it's certainly a worthwhile update. The new layout feels a little bit more intuitive and natural, making getting your around the app a whole lot easier. The update is available now in the Google Play Store, you'll find the link past the break.
