IMDb has released an update to its universal app for iOS devices adding several new features including a watchlist, online movie ticket purchasing, and AirPlay support. With IMDb 2.1 users can now create and maintain a watchlist to track movies and TV shows that interest them, view all of the movies and TV shows that they have rated on IMDb and get live search results as they type. The update also adds improved showtime listings for movie theatres based on distance from the user’s current location and allows users in the U.S., U.K., Canada and Spain to purchase movie tickets directly within the app. iOS 4.3 users can also now stream movie trailers to their Apple TV with the addition of AirPlay video support. The update also adds an Entertainment News section to provide more news and updates about movies, TV shows and celebrities. IMDb Movies & TV 2.1 is a universal app and is available from the App Store as a free download.
