Alright movie fans, the IMDB app for Android and iOS has just been updated, bringing with it some convenient functionality! With ticketing powered by another popular movie app, Fandango, users can now purchase movie tickets from supported theater’s directly through the IMDB app.

There’s also been some added Amazon integration, which, as The Next Web mentions, isn’t surprising since Amazon owns IMDB. There’s now a “buy” button you can tap, which will direct you to the product on the Amazon Mobile app, giving you the option to purchase the movie, if it’s available. Of course, you need to have the Amazon Mobile app downloaded for this to work, otherwise, it just opens your browser, and gives you a list of search results, using the name of the movie as the search term.

This update brings a “watchlist” to the IMDB app, as well. Basically, you can add movies to your watchlist to track films that you want to see in the future. While it’s a really basic feature, it can definitely come in handy, especially if you’re out on vacation, find a movie you want to see, and don’t want to forget about it by the time you get back home.

Aside from that, there isn’t much else you can expect to see in this update. There’s been a few performance enhancements, which makes scrolling more smooth and responsive, but that’s it. You can grab the IMDB update from the link below, or simply download it straight from your phone.

Do you plan using IMDB to buy tickets to see Pacific Rim or Despicable Me 2 this weekend?
