    • Reminders for watch list movies in theaters

      Notifications for when a movie in the watch list opens in theaters and for when one in the wish list is released on DVD/for purchase. Maybe even a counter on top of each wish/watch list for how many days until released.

      • Sort by Release Date

        Currently the app is sorting all movies by name. This isn't useful IMO. Please add a option in settings to sort by release date of the movie (trakt allows release date sorting in lists in their website).

        • Movie Suggestion besides collection and wish list

          Able to browse through list of popular or trending movies would make searching some great titles to be added to wish list easy.

          • Trending movies

            Any way to remove marked items from trending movies in death? (for instance ones that have been added to watch list) so you can see more that are trending.

            Majority of trending on mine have been the same ones for a while even though I've marked them. Would be good to find new movies easier through the app instead of going to imdb or actually on to the trait website.

            Or make trending movies list bigger so it shows more trending but above would be better.

                You can now do that with version 1.5 of MOVIST. When you are on a list (let’s say your seen list) tap on the highlighted icon (e.g. seen list) to switch between 3 modes. Enjoy.

              • Add movies by UPC

                Have too many in my collection to add manually. Would be SO much easier to scan UPC and have them come up.

                        • Many movie posters missing

                          I love this app ! I don't know if it is correct to write it here - if not please delete. The problem that I encountered about a week ago - i entered the app and saw that there were many posters missing (Movist logo is there) but no posters. I have about the half of posters missing from my collection, and movies to watch. The search section does not show any posters at all. Is this only happening to me ? Should I re - install the app - I really don't want to because I'm afraid to loose…

                            Hi,

                            Please make sure you are running the latest version of MOVIST first. We’ve had to make an update to images t change provider as trakt.tv removed the images from their API.

                            If after the update you find images are still missing, please send a message to support (“contact support” on this page : https://linitix.uservoice.com). This here is the feedback forum for new ideas and stuff like that ;)

                            Thanks!

                            Kevin

                          • Discovery feature for forgotten movies

                            This feature would allow users to find movies that they've seen many years ago, or movies that they've just forgotten, but would remember the movie cover/actors etc. This would simplify expanding the personal library collection. I, amongst others have watched so many films that we would never be able to name them all. If you could solve that, you'd have the complete package.

                                This is possible with the list options. You can group your collection by seen and unseen movies. The list option is available with a pinch gesture on the collection.

                                Currently the screen does not auto lock/turn off and therefore drains battery if app is left open. Auto lock works fine in other apps eg YouTube but not when Movist is open.

                                      We added 3 modes for that :
                                      The standard mode: showing list names under the list icons. This is the default mode.
                                      The current list count mode: showing the movie count only under the current list.
                                      The list count everywhere mode: showing the movie count under every list.
                                      The mode can be changed by doing a simple tap on the currently highlighted list. It’s easy to change from the main interface itself.

                                        Thanks a lot for this suggestion.
                                        We are using trakt.tv as our database. And they are using tmdb as a database so you can go to trakt.tv and import a tmdb movie :

                                        Make sure the movie exists on TMDB, then import it using the TMDB ID.

                                        If the movie doesn’t exist on tmdb, you can insert it. https://www.themoviedb.org/movie/new

                                        When a film is "x'ed" on the discovery feature it will not appear on it again unlike now when the same films appear each time

                                        • Tops movies from other websites

                                          Lists showing the Top 100 of any genres. Rotten Tomatoes, has lists of "Top Box Office", "Top Horror", "Top Sci-Fi"..
                                          I think it's a good idea import these lists to the application.

                                            This is already available in MOVIST 1.11 (only available on iOS 9).
                                            From the menu, you can choose to “browse” our lists (a lot of them comes from imdb, rotten tomates or are trakt lists curated by ourselves or other trakt users).
