My IMDB app just updated to version 6.3.0 and I can't find the option to check in the movies I watched anymore. The option used to be with the share button, but now it's not there. Not only that, but I'm also unable to see my check-ins in the app, only on the website.

Thanks for the feedback and sorry for the inconvenience.  This change should not have gone live in the app.  We are following up with appropriate team to find out how this happened. 

We appreciate that this is not always an easy workaround if the screen on your device is small or bandwidth is limited, but until this is fixed,  if you navigate to the title page on the main www.imdb.com site, you can still check-in to titles via the "Share" link in the upper right of the title page.

For example from http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2671706/ 

Note that depending upon your location some new titles may have ad promotions on IMDb which affects the location of the button.  For example, http://www.imdb.com/title/tt3748528/

To view your check-ins on the desktop site, please visit http://www.imdb.com/profile and there's a link to your check-ins in the "Quick Links" section in the upper right which can then bookmark / favourite directly.

Hi Everyone

I've received word from my technical team that they've released a new IMDb Android Application version 6.3.1 that should resolve this issue and bring the Checkin feature back. To resolve this please proceed by updating your IMDb Android Application to this newest version from the Play Store.
