Unfortunately, Windows Mobile 6.x never received an official IMDb application like the one we demoed for Windows Phone 7. However, thanks to XDA, there’s an unofficial app that gives access to many key features. The original developer announced a while back that he would be discontinuing development due to jumping platforms; however, today, a new developer has taken the reigns.
The new developer, who goes by The Darkman, has updated the IMDb app with a long list of additions and fixes, with hopefully, more to come in the future for those of us still rolling with the Windows Mobile crowd. Check out the full changelog below and as always, grab the latest download from XDA-developers.
