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. The app is equipped with newly developed features including the ability for a member to upload photos and manage their page on the go as well as IMDbPro Track, which offers a custom newsfeed and notifications on the people and film & TV projects a member has selected to follow. The app leverages other IMDbPro member-only benefits, including the ability to explore more than 25,000 in-development film and TV titles and gain exclusive insights into which professionals and titles are trending via IMDbPro STARmeter and MOVIEmeter data.

“As we continue to enhance our IMDbPro app, feedback from our members guides our decisions on the new features and functionality to add,” said Matt Kumin, Head of IMDbPro. “Making the app available for Android means all members now have on-the-go access to our powerful tools and information and the ability to quickly research and make connections from anywhere in the world.”

The addition of contact information for resources including the Women In Film Sexual Harassment Help Line and the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) supports industry efforts to work toward professional conduct and gender parity, including a recently announced collaboration between IMDbPro and ReFrame — a coalition of industry professionals and partner companies founded by Women In Film and Sundance Institute whose mission is to increase the number of women of all backgrounds working in film, TV and media — to recognize standout, gender-balanced film and TV projects.

The IMDbPro app for Android is the latest in a series of product innovations guided by customer input, including an enhanced desktop experience that makes it even easier to access the IMDbPro-exclusive data and insights members use the most. New features are regularly added to the IMDbPro app, such as the addition of IMDbPro Track. IMDbPro members are entertainment professionals across nearly every major job function in the industry, comprising a growing number of decision makers, including many of the most prolific producers, casting directors, filmmakers, agents, managers and studio executives.

The IMDbPro app is exclusively available for use by IMDbPro members and can be downloaded for free in the Google Play Store (Android) and App Store (iOS). To become an IMDbPro member today, visit www.imdbpro.com.
