Film Closet for Windows Phone updated, brings Lockscreen support, voice control and more

Film Closet for Windows Phone

We first looked at Film Closet back in mid-May. It’s one of the coolest apps for both Windows Phone and Windows 8. Consider yourself a movie buff? Then you want and need Film Closet. The latest update adds even more to an already solid app. Let’s check it out.

Film Closest is a beautiful and functional app that uses data from The Movie Database (http://www.themoviedb.org). The Movie Database is an awesome, community powered database for movies that includes things like movie poster, trailer, and all the information you’d want about the directors, cast and much more. The latest update in the Store, version, brings a few new features to the table:

  • Chance Lockscreen by either selecting a movie or randomly
  • Voice commands – jump to any page
  • Text to speech – listen to the overview of the movies and the biography of the casts
  • New option to donate
  • Minor bug fixes

Film Closet for Windows Phone

This update brings some very awesome features to the table. Finding out what’s playing is a simple voice command away. And if you’re too lazy to read, the app will read back the overview and stats about the movie to you. Pretty cool. Lockscreen support is an always welcomed feature for anyone who loves to play around with it.

Film Closet is free for users on both Windows Phone 7.x and 8. There’s also a Windows 8 version so you can browse on your Surface or laptop. It’s an excellent app and really worth donating to the developer if you appreciate the effort.

Grab the Windows Phone version in the Store. Don’t forget to check out the Windows 8 version as well.

Film Closet for Windows Phone updated, brings Lockscreen support, voice control and more


I love this app since day one. The best app for movie buffs ever. There is no equal in any other platform, it's so complete.

This is great. I just started using this app after having it installed for over a month without opening. My friend and I was just talking about how the IMDb app would be so much more useful if it had voice integration because otherwise it just easier to look up things via search > mobile site.

It's excellent, design wise and all, but unfortunately it doesn't have a link to RT. Guess I'll keep using Good Movie, though I like this one UI and UX better.

Nobody binged Naomi Watts after reading this article?

I will have to d/l this to see how it compares with Flixster. 

I wish one of these movie apps would give you a counter on the tile for movies that you want to see, a la TVShow from Rudy Huyn.
