About IMDb iOS public watchlist

Is there a feature to search and add public/shared watchlist created by other users in the iOS app? It seems only those recommended by the official websites can be viewed.

Hi @David050503 

At this time we don't have a list search feature available on IMDb.

I'm going to update this post to an "Idea" so that other users can vote/comment upon this for future consideration.

Also in the iOS app version the user can not click on other users to see their shared list and it does not show relative lists to the movie you search like the pc version does.  It will be convenient for users to have these features added in later updates.

How do I view this list in the iOS mobile app?

In Safari on iPhone, if I touch and hold a link, one of the options in the pop-up menu is "Open in IMDb". So if you open this thread in Safari, try using the link:

https://www.imdb.com/list/ls041730523/

In many cases if I open an IMDb page in the browser, I also get the option to open it in the app.

@Peter_pbn​ Thank you! You are right, "clicking" a list link from a web page or email opens the IMDB app to that list.

Additionally, if I add the link as a Favorite within Safari, open the webpage within Safari, there is a banner at the top of the webpage to open the list within the app.

I suppose it would be nice to avoid having to open Safari to get to a list within the app. It would be nice if I could "bookmark" the list within the app itself. I'll look at creating a feature request.

But, thank you again for clarifying what currently works.

And... once you have found a public list (like https://www.imdb.com/list/ls041730523/) be able to bookmark it or something so that I don't have to try to find it every time.
