  1. Add TV series

    Many own TV series on DVD and blu ray. Being able to add them to the collection would be great.

        • Alpha/Chronological Thumbnail or List View

          Alphabetical and chronological (based on release date) List or Thumbnail view option. The current view would be quite tedious to scroll through when you have more than 10 movies, which we all do.
          To be clear, I would like the movies to list alphabetically by name and chronologically by your released within the alphabetical list. For example, The Italian Job was originally made in the 1960s, whereas the newer version would have a much later release date. The same is true for The Bourne Identity. True videophiles would have both copies of a particular duplication such as these.

            In MOVIST 1.7 you can tweak the sort options for each list from the settings pane. We’ll improve this mechanism over time.

          • Add movie search and filters

            I want to search for a movie already added in movist and also filter movies based on the genre or the release year.

              This is available in MOVIST 1.9 currently available on the App Store. Enjoy!
              Genre sort/group by will be available soon.

            • A-Z sidebar for scrolling quickly to a particular letter

              Easily skip through to find movies beginning with a particular letter

                So I know how many movies I own.

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

                • Sorting Option

                  Different Sorting options like
                  Sorting based on user's choice
                  sorting based on the year in which the movie was released
                  Etc

                    You can find some sorting options in the settings under MOVIST 1.7.
                    The sorting mechanism will be improved in future versions with more options.

                  • Add more lists (seen, watch list, custom list)

                    We should be able to mark movies has watched. We should also be able to add a movie to an "I want to watch that movie" list.

                    Custom lists could also be great. Like trakt does.

                      Seen and watch list have been added in 1.4.
                      Custom lists are coming later this year.
                      This idea will be closed since the custom list feature has been asked by someone else. Do not hesitate to up vote the idea.

                        • Add browse option

                          It would be great to have this option since sometime we just can't remember or recall all movies we've been watched until we saw its name.

                          • Related movies.

                            I'd like to be able to find sequals/prequals when looking at movies and I think it's a much needed feature.

                                For those with large collections, it would help when searching through if there was a break and a letter after all the movies that start with A, then B, etc.

                                    Movie details should be available offline too.
                                    This could be an option in the settings so that users that have less storage capacity could disable it.

                                    • Quick Letter Reference

                                      Would be nice if you can have an alphabet listing along the side to be avle to quickly select the letter of the movie your seaching for. When a movie listing gets long, takes some time to find a specific movie.

                                      • Speed up loading times

                                        Seems to take ages from selecting a movie in watch list to then get the details screen up. Likes to sit loading for a good 10-15 seconds for each movie?

                                        Not a problem for say 1 movie but when you are trying to find something to watch and want to look at multiple it is annoying.

                                        Great app for tracking movies tho and can't fault it apart from speed.

                                        Is it just me or are others finding this? Haven't tried disabling trakt so not sure if that is affecting it.

                                          The new version of MOVIST (1.5) available today on the app store fixes this issue. Trakt.tv has still some troubles with performance but this should be resolved in 24 hours.

                                        • Movie check-in feature for trakt

                                          It would be awesome to be able to check-in on a movie for trakt.tv
