This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: Writing Reviews straight from the App?

Why can't I write a users review on an android and/or an apple device in the UK? I can view the users review section but can't create a review. I have done in the past off a PC using Internet explorer.. I check the (most unhelpful) help page (which I couldn't find within the Apple App so had to go through Safari).. I can rate a movie.. I'm using the latest app from Apple App Store and on my android I'm using the latest app from Google Play.. Incredibly frustrating (as is the most inherently unhelpful 'help' page!) shed any light?

The IMDB App whether your on an android or iOS device does NOT allow you to write a user review for a film or tv show. The only rating offered is by stars from 1-10 on the mobile apps. If you goto IMDb website and sign in from any browser than you will find a large yellow button with "Write a review" at the bottom of the films info page. The IMDb team has been notified about how frustrating it is to have to switch from app to browser over 3 yrs ago and they said they were working on it. I just commented on another user asking the same thing only 3months ago and another team member said that they have it on their road maps but no ETA as to when users will be able to WRITE a review from the mobiles.....THIS IS CRAZY! I'm beyond frustrated at this point but I hope this clarifies ur issue GOOD LUCK

You CAN on iOS (possibly android too!)in any of these 2 ways:

1. If you go to the IMDb website on safari and press the little box with the arrow on the film you want to write the review on it comes up with a pop up, scroll along till you find "Request Desktop Site" press that and now you have the desktop page instead of the mobile page, meaning you can write reviews!
2. (I think this is on android too) Download the Puffin Browser free app, when it asks you if you want to use the app as a mobile or a desktop browser choose desktop and go on IMDb through that and you can write your reviews through that
