The Internet Movie Database is the top movie reference website and it now has an exceptional app. It’s a huge database of everyone and everything in Hollywood such as movies, TV, actors, and more. In addition, you get a serviceable tv listings app and a nice movie showtimes app as well. If you don’t need to buy your tickets on your phone, you really don’t need a separate movie listings app. Here you can watch trailers, read reviews, read the latest news from Hollywood, plus so much more.

Trivia, quotes and more. Even if you are a total movie buff, I bet there are still some things that you may not have known about your favorite movie. Whether you're a fan of trivia or not, IMDb is chock-full of information. It has complete synopsis and episode details, list of cast and crew, and even more fun things like trivia, quotes for you to say or keep track of, and other fun things. IMDb does a great job of being both informative and fun.

Search. With IMDb, there's no limit to what you can search for in the app. Just use the search and start typing in what you want to find, whether it's a movie, actor, television show, director, producer, or even other entertainment figures. Chances are if they have a good name to them, you'll be able to find it in IMDb. The information that comes with the app is virtually limitless.

It's a rabbit-hole. Since IMDb is so packed with information, it's hard to not get lost in the app once you get started. You can find the latest trending titles on the main page, but once you start clicking around to view movies, actors, other movies that actor is known for, and other movies, well, it's a never-ending cycle that will take up hours of your life away, but for good reason. You'll come out of the rabbit hole more enriched and knowledgable about your favorite movies and actors — it's something we all want, right?
