Add goof contribution on the app

I contribute goofs very frequently, but I can't do it from the mobile app unless there's already one for that movie or episode. And I can't do it on the website even if I go through the Internet app because the contribute option isn't on the mobile site. So I literally have to go to my computer if I want to add a contribution, which is very inconvenient since my computer isn't in the same room as my TV. I think it would be much more helpful to have that option available on the mobile app.

Lisa: As I understand it, IMDb is trying to expand the kinds of data that can be submitted through the mobile app, but that is an ongoing process. (See https://getsatisfaction.com/imdb/topics/new-feature-mobile-contribution for a prior discussion of this.) I don't know when it will be possible to add goofs through the app, but I suspect that it is at least a higher priority for IMDb than some other projects.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled The Fun Stuff section is woefully underrepresented on the iPhone app.

Viewing a title's page on the iPhone app, viewers can see and contribute to the following Fun Stuff sections:

  • Trivia

Visiting to a title's page on IMDb.com, viewers can see and contribute to these following sections:

  • Crazy Credits
  • Goofs
  • Movie Connections
  • Soundtracks
  • Trivia

So the app currently offers 1/5 of the interactive content offered on IMDb.com under this category. Why the disparity? Surely mobile users of IMDb have just as much to contribute as desktop users do. So what is the rationale for limiting the iPhone app so drastically?

The IMDb iPhone app should have a way to add to or edit items under the other four categories just as the desktop site does.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Enable add quote function for iOS app.

The iOS app would be better if users could add items to the quote sections of films and television shows/episodes.

Please add this! Going to the site, scrolling and clicking to get to the right page to add goofs is ridiculously cumbersome!

Plus it's just generally bad UI/UX to provide such different experiences, functions, and capability between mobile and desktop devices

And can we please get a retitle for this thread? After the merge with my FunStuff thread, this current title is a complete misrepresentation. Why not merge it the other way around so my title covered both threads?
