We're learning a bit more about that very cool IMDB program for Windows Phone 7 that we saw on Monday. In short, it's really, really sharp and many of you will find it quite pleasing to use.
New features include daily application tile image updates, panorama views, and the ability to receive IMDb movie recommendations by shaking the phone. Users can also find show times, watch trailers, browse photo galleries, get TV listings, find DVD and Blu-ray releases, explore popular charts and share movie information. The application is available in English US, English UK, French and German. To understand the complexities and deliver on all the goals of this project, IdentityMine researched IMDb’s business needs, user profile, movie assets and technology capabilities. Over a course of three weeks, IdentityMine’s team of UX experts worked with Silverlight and Microsoft web services to integrate IMDb’s enormous database of 1,633,300 titles and 3,649,234 names with graphics with an interface that users could easily access, search, sort and engage with.
