“Movie Connections” information missing on iPad app

I looooove the Connections section on IMDb. The iOS apps used to have an “i” icon over each image in said section, and by tapping that a message explaining the relationship between the two items (e.g. character in movie X says a quote from movie Y) would be displayed. This disappeared both from the iPhone and the iPad a long time ago. It sort of came back to the iPhone (now there’s no “i” icon but the explanation is right there below the image) but years passed by and I still have no way of seeing this on the iPad. What gives?

Please see attached screenshots for examples.





Please bring back this feature to the iPad.

Hi there,

So that we can offer further help, can you please confirm the iOS version and IMDb app version currently installed on your iPad?

Thanks in advance.

A new version of the app was released this week (9.0 and then 9.0.1), the release notes say that a bug was fixed on the Connections page but I still can’t see the missing information. Any news?

An update from our technical team:

On the iPad, we added a way to switch between the grid and list view on the Connections page. The list view is the same thing you see on the iPhone, which displays the connection details under each item. Press the grid/list toggle button in the header to see it.

Let us know if you have any further questions.

Ok thanks, now I see. It doesn’t make much sense for me (I prefer the grid list, with the option to see the info by tapping an icon, like before), but at least I don’t have to go to the website anymore.
