Is there a "genre search" option in the IMDB app, and where do I find it? If this feature isn't available, why not? It seems like a pretty foundational function to have, considering that when one searches for a specific movie title, included in the description is a hierarchical list of genre terms. Why can't those genre descriptions be made "tappable" links to find other movies that fall within the same category? You've already done the work of categorizing movies, would it be that difficult to implement a genre search feature?

Genres are clickable for me in the iPhone app. It's odd if that's not the case on Android.

I also see a link to "Most Popular by Genre" under the Movies section.

Hi Chris,

You can find films filtered by Genre by clicking on the "MOVIES" tab in the top navbar, then scrolling down to find "Popular Genres":

Clicking on one of these genres will open the films in that category:
