Excellent app for a great book


This app works flawlessly, and has so many great features, it is a nearly perfect app. I have used it to check off all the movies I've seen from the list. It lets you rate them, make notes on each movie, even upload a photo, although movie poster art is included. You get a choice of three lists: Essential, New Edition, or Complete. You can sort or filter your list by several criteria. I had been keeping the list in a spreadsheet, but this is much nicer. It is a small app, but easy to use, fast and smooth, with no glitches.

Good checklist, lousy reference

I love the ability to check off and rate movies from the 1001 films book, but other than that there's is hardly anything else to offer. The posters/images of movies have to be manually updated. There's no real film information except the absolute basics. No actors, no synopsis, no links, or trailers... not saying this has to be a comprehensive diary of each movie, but for $5 I expected more than just a checklist...

It just a list.


I couldn't recommend this app to anyone. Much of the information is incorrect (wrong directors, years, etc.). You can't check movies off from the list view, which is pretty annoying for an app that is just a list. There is no additional information about the movies either (no descriptions, actors, why it's on the list). I'm really at a loss for what you're paying for.

It's 5 dollars for a list of movies with incorrect info on many titles. Don't buy it.
