Specific episode cast listing?

Thanks to the recent update to my IMDB app for iPhone, I am no longer able to access the cast for a particular episode of a show. For example, Mad Men. If I am watching the most recent episode and recognize an actor, I access the episode through the IMDB app but it no longer lists the actors in that specific episode. Only the cast in general is listed. Can anyone direct me how to access the specific episode cast? Thanks

I haven't checked, but is there a cast list on the IMDB site when you access it through a browser? Sometimes, the most recent episodes haven't been updated yet, although for something like Mad Men I'd be surprised if this was the case but worth a check.

I use imdb primarily on my iPhone via the app and I've been able to see the cast of a specific episode up until the last update. On the 1st episode of Mad Men this season was an actress from another show I used to watch. If I look her up by name she has Mad Men to her credit but I can't see her listed under the show for the specific episode. Frustrating!

I've just checked on the Android app and the cast list is showing up just fine, so this is something staff will need to look into.

Have you tried uninstaling the app and putting it back on?

The cast of a SPECIFIC episode shows up? I'll try uninstalling as well. I really appreciate your help

Yep, it all works fine for me, but on Android. The iPhone app might be different.

Just to confirm: the iOS app does support and display full casts for episodes.

Example:

1) Look up a show using the app's search feature. In this case, this is the main page for Mad Men:



2) Touch the "Episode Guide" section and you'll get the Episode selection page:



3) Once you are on the episode page you can scroll through the photos, and also touch "All Cast & Crew":



4) On the 'All Cast & Crew" page, touch the 'Cast' section.



5) And you get to the full cast listing for the selected episode (in this example, episode 5.12 "Commissions and Fees"):

Thank you SO much for the step by step instructions. I had been searching for weeks on how to get something like that through the app or App Store. The other part of the problem was that I had no such options previously. Thanks to Emperor for reminding me of the golden rule, uninstall & reinstall! I now have the episode cast options! Thanks so much. I was ready to give up!
