    Downloaded it to my N1 as soon as I saw this. I'm a huge movie buff and absolutely hated having to use the imdb website to get info while other IMDB apps were mostly crap.

    This one tho, is absolutely awesome. And it's about time! Love it.

    Does the quick search box integration work for anybody? On my Moto Milestone it doesn't seem to work at all: IMDb is selectable on the seaerch options but typing on the quick search box doesn't get any IMDb results (while other integrated searches like Weatherbug, Spotify and Music work fine).. Great little app never the less!
