What happened to the option to sort your watchlist by release date, which I used most of the time? Now, in the latest update, you can only sort by release year? Super lame.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Please add back sorting lists by release date (not just release year) for the IMD....

Confused why this was removed in the most recent update to IMDb on iPhone since it is still available on the site

We're working on getting the Release Date sort back for Watchlist and other Title lists in the next app release.

This still seems to be broken. Right now if I sort by release date on mobile app vs release date on desktop 2 different thing happens:

Mobile app: sorts by release date, down to the day. This is great.
Desktop site: sorts by release date, but movies that are released in the same year are shuffled within that year.

We will likely have a build with Release Date sort back in tomorrow for beta testing. Please email iphone@imdb.com if you'd like to help test it, and I'll send you a beta testing invite.

I beta tested the latest version and I can confirm that release date sorting works again. Thanks for restoring the functionality so quickly! The "border text" that surrounds the show image still just shows the year, but the release date is listed below the show/movie title, so that's acceptable for me, at least. I do notice several TV shows that don't actually have a release date that shows up (Billions, Brickleberry, Happyish, and Quantico, for example), but I assume that's a wholly different data quality issue...
