Ratings and Reviews
Good for Indie film watchers but one major issue
The basic version of this app executes its purpose well. It allows you to create and track movies you want to watch and ones you have watched. You can also create custom named lists.
Because this app is backed by TMDB, you have the option of adding films through TMDB that might not have IMDB listings. As someone who watches a lot of independent films, I found this very useful and set this app above other similar apps.
The biggest ongoing issue I have with this app is the inability to set the 'watched' date. That date defaults to whatever the date is when you add the film to the Watched list. When trying to import large historical lists, not having this piece of data is unfortunate.
Good Until It's Gone
To Do Movies is the best movie list platform I've seen since Jinni went offline. Exhaustive movie database, including an impressive catalog of indies, foreign films, old silents, and shorts. Although the number of lists you could have was limited, the list feature (as well as ratings) worked well. The Discovery feature could have been better - To Do lacked Jinni's versatility and relevance in searches and recommendations. But mostly good.
However, if you ever have to delete the app (say, if you periodically delete and reinstall apps to clear out storage space), say goodbye to any effort you've invested in tracking your movie watching in To Do. They don't have a login feature so nothig is tied to a profile and saved - it's 100% app data. I even tried "upgrading" which they claim lets you keep an unlimited number of lists (and theoretically a way of saving them) but could never get that function to work within the app. So every movie I've listed as Watched, Want to Watch, or rated within the better part of a year? Gone.
If To Do adds a functional account feature, I'll be back, but not until.
Super useful app and well designed
June 17, 2016 update: great update! Enjoying how this version remembers which tab you've last selected and uses that at the next launch of the app. Saves a tap!
Very well designed app that's extremely useful. Worth upgrading to support the developer and the bonus is the ads go away. Yes, you can backup your lists. I do that often and it's worth it in case something happens to your phone. Love the curated lists too - discovered some great movies thanks to them!
This app helps keep track of what you want to watch and what you have watched. It's simple but super useful. Yes, you could use the built in reminders app as I used to but that can take longer if you're not sure of the movie name or don't want to type it all out. This app will offer suggestions after typing just a bit of the title. Very stable, fast and beautifully designed!
