IMDb Buzz – Entertainment News

What’s the buzz surrounding IMDb’s latest app?

The idea behind the newest app from the world’s most comprehensive movie website is a simple one; deliver up-to-the-minute updates on users’ favourite celebrities or movies via quick links to IMDb. At the centre of this redesigned browsing experience is a Twitter-inspired ‘Following’ list; essentially a selection of actors or projects you’re interested in. A more elegant solution than constantly revisiting bookmarked pages online or re-typing into IMDb’s search bar, the ‘Following’ section is what sets Buzz apart.

Upon installing, you’ll be met with the ‘Buzz’ page, effectively IMDb’s feed of the latest entertainment news. Each entry features the story in a plain RSS-style layout, and includes links to the pages of related celebs, movies or TV shows, maintaining the IMDb’s reputation for meticulous cross-referencing. Like the entries for actors, each story features a ’Follow’ tab, enabling you to aggregate content. Buzz doesn’t feel quite as comprehensive as the IMDb proper – each entry links to the original IMDb app – making the latter best for those looking for movie gossip.
