Jan 3 2018 update: we have now officially turned off old service calls so please make sure you are on the most recent version of the app!

Original post for details:

On Dec 12th, we released several critical updates to the IMDb Android app. v7.3 is now available in Google Play. 

Please upgrade as soon as possible to ensure that all of the app features continue to work as expected.  As a reminder, we also added List functionality to v7.3; see this post for details: https://getsatisfaction.com/imdb/topics/imdb-android-lists-update

If you are using an older version of the app, you may experience missing content and errors, particularly on features such as news, ratings, and reviews. Anyone on a device that uses Android 19 (Kitkat) or above is eligible to upgrade. 

We no longer support Android versions 18 or below. For Amazon Fire devices, we no longer support versions 3.1.4 and 5.1.1. Please use www.imdb.com if you have a device that is no longer supported.  Thanks for your continued support of IMDb.

This latest update crashes the app every time I try to open it. I know it's the update, because immediately prior to installing it, I used the app with no issues. As soon as I installed it, the app started crashing immediately upon trying to open it.

Network Error - What is solution? I searched for a fix to this, found year old post with same problem, it was tagged as solved ... But there was no solution in the posting. I need a solution, out of the blue I started to get Network Error whenever I try to do anything. I have tried all I can think of, re-install, re-boot phone ... I know it is not my network, only problem on this app.

Hi Virgil, can you confirm you have upgraded to the latest version, 7.3?  You should not receive network errors on that version.  Anyone on a device that uses Android 19 (Kitkat) or above is eligible to upgrade.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Rating titles - network error.

Hi there,

Since a few days now, I'm unable to classify titles. I get a "erro de rede" (in Portuguese, which I belive I can translate into network error). Last time it happened was with Crazy Ex Girlfriend and Don't Trust The B--- in Apartment 23.

Can you please help in this? What is wrong and what can I do to fix it?

Thank you very much!

Best,
Andreia

I've always been able to access the user reviews....no problem. Now....all of a sudden I can't so I kno it's not to it not being available on my phn or nethng like that. I'm seriously hope it can be fixed cuz it's one the main things I use the app for! I like to check out reviews b4 renting a movie or goin to the theater & I don't trust critic reviews. Although, I can access those.
