What's new in CLZ Movies for Android?
v6.3: Automatic Audience Ratings from IMDb
A great addition to your CLZ Movies app today: Automatic Audience Ratings from IMDb, like the MPAA ratings for US, or the BBFC ratings for UK.
I know, we announced this feature a couple of months ago already, expecting it to be live soon. However, the project turned out to be quite a bit more complex and time-consuming as initially planned. Not only technically, but also in terms of cleaning up duplicate ratings, creating all the rating icons, etc…
But the feature is finally here now. And, after running the Update from Core on my own collection (3100 movies), I must say, it was well worth the wait!
How to get the new Audience Ratings for your movies
First, go to the Settings screen and select your region from the “Audience Rating Region” dropdown. Currently, the following regions are supported:
- United States
- Great Britain
- New Zealand
Then, again under Settings :
- Select “Update Audience Ratings”
- Tap “YES” to start the update process
For all future movies that you add, you will get the Audience Rating from IMDb automatically.
IMPORTANT: The Audience Ratings from IMDb feature is a new online service that we offer, and therefore always requires an active subscription for CLZ Movies.
