Why aren't the reviews on the app in date order? They are all over the place and when you post a review it's very hard to find on the app, surely the most recent should be on the top?

Hello,

Reviews are sorted by whether IMDb users found the review useful. You can see this on the desktop site here:

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt3631112/reviews

The review that most IMDb users rated as helpful will show at the top.

Thanks. So new reviews that startswith no likes could be right at the bottom of the pile so won't get any likes as no one will scroll down that far to read them

At this time on the app, it will sort will automatically by the reviews users voted most helpful. There isn't a way to filter users reviews on the app at this time. We appreciate your feedback on this!

If you're viewing the title page on the desktop site, you can filter reviews by many other qualifiers and can create a custom filter.

Ok thanks, I don't suppose actually being able to write a review on the app is happening anytime soon?

As this is not currently a feature of the app, I'm going to mark your question as an Idea, so other IMDb staff members can see your feedback and users can also add their feedback regarding this.  Thank you for your feedback!

Having reviews listed by usefulness is NOT useful at all. The previous settings allowed you to view reviews in varied order. Sometimes you want to see how early reviews differ from current ones. Sometimes you just want to read the bad reviews to see what people didn't like about a movie. It's not for you to tell us what you think we should find useful.
