Movist Feedback Forum

How can we improve Movist?

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".
(thinking…)

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Combine "Rate" and "Mark as Seen"

    ...or at the very least stop forcing the drawer/popover to minimise after I've marked as seen. It's frustrating to hit the action button, hit mark as seen, wait for the animation, hit the action button again, tap rate, etc...

    Combine the two, when you rate something then logic dictates you've seen it, or make me take less steps to do both.

    • movie to watch

      It would be a nice feature to have the ability to select a genre of movie and the app will provide a list of movies in my collection that fit that genre. Especially when trying to decide on a movie to watch.

      • Categorise Movies by Release Year

        If in filters we could select the particular year the movie was released in then subsequently the month the movie was released it ( in our collection not search ) then a persons movie collection would be categorised very systematically.

        • DVD/Blu Ray release date

          I would really like it if you could add when a movie will be released on DVD and blu ray. You could add digital release as well since they tend to have a digital release about a month before the DVD release.

          • Need a quicker way to mark movies

            Would be great to have a (configurable?) panel of quick buttons to mark movie as seen or add to watchlist when in Discover mode. The share sheet is kinda clunky and takes a couple of taps sometimes to make things work. Maybe make the icons that already exist on top of the cover image tappable?

              • List maker

                I guarantee you I'll buy the app when you add lists you can make yourself. Not just the lists you already made like watchlist or Bond Movies, but a list with a customisable name and where you can keep on adding movies.
                example: I want to make lists for the movie marathons I want to organise and send them to my friends

                • Better movie browsing

                  It would be awesome to be able to go find movies with things other than the title. I'd really like to be able to find more movies to watch. Being able to browse by genres or year or actor would be an amazing addition.

                  • Localized movie release date

                    It's quite difficult, but having localized movie release date would be really useful! (IMDB has it, you could take the datas from it)

                        What about when I sit down to pick a movie and want to browse all the movies I own that I haven't watched yet?

                          • List format

                            Have the titles in an an easy to see list format. Like how the phone book in your phone with the names is easy to see. With an a-z along the side to quick find the films you want to find. I find the tiles can be difficult to see.

                            I only have about 10 films on my list so far. Although it looks nice, with a few hundred films to add, I can see it getting cluttered pretty quickly.

                            • iCloud syncing/split screen support/Mac version?

                              I have three ideas haha :)

                              1. Maybe allow the choice of iCloud syncing or Trakt syncing? It may be difficult to implement but it would be great to have my entire library on my phone as well.

                              2. It's an odd idea but it would be great if Split Screen support was implemented? So, if you are in Safari and read up about a movie that interests you; you can just add the movie to your library by opening the app beside Safari [hopefully that makes sense]

                              3. This is just a dream honestly but it would be awesome…

                              • A "statistics" feature.

                                If at all possible, it would be cool if there was a "statistics" feature that would include how much time you've spent amongst all the films, what movies you've seen the most from a particular era, and what actors/actresses you've seen the most throughout all the movies you've watched.

                                • Sort by Runtime

                                  Have you ever choose a movie to watch based on the length of free time that you have? I do. Sometimes, I have only 1 hr. and 30 mins left before I have to leave home, and wondering what movie I can watch during this free time. Full length movies run from 1 hr. to 3 hr. It's not very easy to check each movie in my collection to see how long it is (that's already a lot of time spending on finding).

                                  Since Trakt.tv data provider already has runtime data, it would be very helpful to display this information…

                                  • Discover should not show seen/listed

                                    The discover, tinder-esqu, interface is OK. However it needs one mind or tweak - don't show movies that I marked as seen or put in watchlist. I have already discovered these.
                                    I know it may also be to gather info on like/dislike, but you'd be better served (as would we) but getting this information elsewhere I.e from our rated movies and watchlist items. Suggest making discover for only stuff we haven't interacted with already.

                                      You are right. We’ll make a setting for this.
                                      For your info, we don’t gather your likes/dislikes. We just felt it was cool to re-discover a movie and trigger the need to watch it again ;)

                                    • Include custom tags and categories

                                      It would be good to be able to categorise and tag your personal library. It would also be good to rate titles.
                                      If TV Episodes are going to be included the above should be applied in an episode level rather than just a series level.

                                        I think be able to scan multiple movies at once to add to my collection would make this app 5 star, however I have to scan one movie at a time and majority of them aren't found, I have to let them in manually.

                                        • Blu-ray info

                                          If this is an app about my movies collection doesn't make much sense the lack of info about the blu-ray or DVDs we have.

                                          This is more about movies. Sadly.
