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.

Hi Carol,

Can you tell me what device you are using? I've just tested the latest version of the IMDB Android Application which is 6.2.6.1 and I am still seeing the check-in option and list appear. You mentioned that you have version 6.3.0? Which device is this installed on?

Best,
Kurt

I am having this same issue with the new update of IMDB. When I click share on the app, I only get the option to share that I watched the movie on Facebook, etc. Even doing this, the movie is still not recorded on my check in list. I am using a Samsung Galaxy Note 4 with Android version 6.0.1. Only the full web version allows for checking in. I have tried the mobile web version and still no check in option. I have provided screen shots.
App share options with no check in.


App options once check in is clicked.


Full website share options with check in available.

App version.

Below is the mobile web version of the share options with no check in available.

Without the check-in feature, the app is useless. Please restore this ASAP!! The holidays are coming up, lots of people will be watching movies and wanting to check in.

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. 

Best, 
Kurt
