IMDb
Cost: Free | Developer: IMDb.com | Platform: Windows Phone 7 | Version: 1.2.0.0 | 1 MB |

If you love movies, then it's likely that you have used the IMDb web site at least once to look for information about your favourite movies and celebrities.

Since the information intensive website is designed for desktop browsers in mind, the Windows Phone app simplifies the browsing experience through the Metro-styled user interface.

Users can access dynamic content such as trailers and browse photo galleries through the app, as well as explore ranking charts and share movie information.

In addition to critics’ reviews for movies and TV shows, user reviews can also be viewed for an added level of interaction.

The app also tracks your browsing and search history on IMDb, so you can easily come back to any listing that you viewed earlier.

Pros: A well designed interface for an information intensive database.

Cons: TV listings and release dates are US-centric.

Verdict: A great way to access the world’s largest movie database.
