LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--IMDbPro (www.imdbpro.com), the leading resource for entertainment industry professionals, today announced the launch of its first-ever iPhone app in the App Store. The IMDbPro app empowers members with a convenient way to search the profiles of more than 4 million people, access the latest industry news, get contact and representation details for more than 300,000 industry professionals and tap through to call or email directly from an iPhone. The app leverages other IMDbPro member-only benefits, including the ability to explore more than 25,000 in-development titles for film and TV and gain exclusive insights into which professionals and titles are trending via IMDbPro’s STARmeter and MOVIEmeter data.
“IMDbPro members are busy professionals who are frequently out in the world taking meetings and making connections,” said Col Needham, IMDb’s Founder and CEO. “Our new IMDbPro iPhone app empowers members to access the entertainment industry’s most complete and authoritative information resource wherever they go, and was developed in collaboration with IMDbPro customers, who have told us that a mobile app is the #1 most impactful new product we could launch to support their daily professional needs.”
“IMDbPro, for me, is the source and culmination of all industry activity,” said Dacre Montgomery, actor (Stranger Things) and #2 on IMDbPro’s STARmeter ranking of trending talent as of November 21, 2017. “It gives me access to the latest news from the industry trades and seemingly infinite insight to everything film and television. The IMDbPro app makes it even easier and more convenient to stay on top of all the news and trends.”
“I love IMDbPro and have used its STARmeter chart virtually every day since I started at Funny Or Die in 2008,” said Mike Farah, CEO of Funny Or Die. “The new IMDbPro app gives me real-time, mobile access to STARmeter data, which I use when making casting decisions, to discover new talent, and to check our own personal value once a week. In fact, one of my proudest days in Hollywood was reaching number 35,657 on STARmeter. I'm hoping by supporting IMDbPro publicly I will be able to find out how and why I dropped 17,004 spots THIS WEEK ALONE. Seriously though, IMDbPro is a tremendous tool and Funny Or Die would not be the same without it.”
Enabling push notifications in the IMDbPro app will highlight new features and developments in the entertainment industry that may be relevant to a particular member. New features and functionality will be added on an ongoing basis, drawing upon customer feedback.
“IMDbPro is an essential tool for entertainment professionals, and we continue to make it even easier for our members to find the industry information they need,” said Matt Kumin, head of IMDbPro. “Today’s iPhone app launch will help our members stay better informed, make smarter business decisions and streamline industry connections when they are away from their desks. We are committed to innovation and will continue adding new features and functionality to this initial version of our iPhone app based on customer feedback and requests.”
