The Academy Awards are Sunday and I can just feel your excitement. Whether you are a tech geek who is praying for Avatar to be the best picture or a softie who wants to see Precious get some awards, you have to be excited about knowing what to put in your Netflix queue next, and everyone wants to see all the winning movies. To get us fully ready for the show, I’ve come up with a list of some apps that will really get you into the Oscar loving spirit.

1. The Oscars – Sure, it may seem like an obvious selection, but sometimes the obvious is necessary. The Oscars app has lists with small descriptions of all the nominations, as well as a way to lock in the movie or actor you think will win… just to show off to others. Once you’ve submitted your picks, you can go to a results page to see what the rest of America thinks will win. According to the app, 51% of people voted for Avatar to win best picuter. Interesting. Well regardless, The Oscars is an inviting, well made, free app. Get it and make some guesses, it’ll be fun.

IMDb Hits the App Store


If you just love movies like me, it’s probably a dead given you know about the Internet Movie Database, or IMDb to the rest of the world. Cataloging one movie at a time, IMDb is an online repository and has grown to become the number one place on the web to find out about movie releases, who star in them, directed them and just about anything else you’d want to know. Last week, this online catalog of information came to iPhone, in the form of the official Internet Movie Database application.

IMDb for iPhone offers a variety of movie-based data, but just like the online version .. it doesn’t stop at movies. Opening the app you’ll find sections for both Movies, TV Shows, and People, with the app offering movie showtimes, titles which are coming soon, US Box office results, the top 25 most searched titles on IMDb and the top 250 movies. What’s interesting about the TV side of this app though, is IMDb for iPhone will ask for your location, and then using the iPhone’s built in geo-location feature, pull TV Shows which are actually airing tonight, in your state or region. So far, this feature only seems to be supported in the US though, but here’s hoping an update resolves that.

The ‘People’ section of IMDb for iPhone relates to the actors and actress that make our movies experiences, memorable. Again, the app will display the top 25 most searched people on IMDb, allowing you to see who is the most popular in search, with the world. What’s really cool though is, as well this, the app will also display an entire list of all the actors and actresses who were “born today,” according to today’s date.

Alongside these immediate features though, if you like you can just search IMDb as you usually would. I have to say that the way information is set out in IMDb for iPhone has clearly been well though out. Everything is clear, readable, and spaced – Making for an enhanced experience over the online version. In fact one app store reviewer commented they like the app more than the website, and I don’t blame them. My only caveat in this is that really, it’s a viewer rather than an interactive experience. The application won’t allow you to log into your IMDb account, it’ll just allow you to view the information as an outsider looking in.

Still, being FREE it’s definitely one for the movie lovers among us!

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
Released: 2009-12-08 :: Category: Entertainment

I’m shocked that I’ve been posting these picks for five weeks already. For this week, my utility of the week is the IMDB app – Movie Genie.

Movie Genie is basically just an interface to IMDB (Internet Movie Database). It allows you to search movies and actors and provides you with a ton of details about them. Movie Genie is a well developed and fast app that interfaces with IMDB perfect. The developer promises a lot of features in the feature, but the app is great as-is. Check out the review here.

If you’d like to suggest a utility for my “utility of the week”, visit my thread on our forum here. And below is a list of previous Utility of the Week picks:

Week 1 – Groups
Week 2 – Put Things Off
Week 3 – Stick It
Week 4 – Air Mouse Pro

You might know SomaSim best from their gold rush sim, 1849. Well, the developer is taking things to new heights (I apologize for nothing) with Project Highrise. It’s still in the extremely early stages – as in concept sketches and not much else – but it sounds like it could be quite neat. Project Highrise […]
