    • Shake to suggest new movies

      The biggest speed bump is in creating your list.

      Shake to suggest should recommend movies you may have seen, that you can then add to your collection or wish list.

      The current functionality--shaking to recommend a random movie from your collection--can be replaced with a button.

        Hi there,
        We will be pushing a new version of MOVIST this month with a Trending movie list.
        We will be adding some other discover features in MOVIST in 2015.
        I’m declining the suggestion because we will keep the shake to have a random movie in the collection selected. The “shake to suggest new movie” will have more sens in another screen.
        Thanks for your feedback.

      • Add alternative title

        In the UK we often have different names for films eg "Belleville Rendezvous" in UK is called "The Triplets of Belleville" in the USA.
        Perhaps a field for preferred name would be a way around this.

          We rely too much on trakt.tv to do that kind of thing. Maybe if they add the ability for us to do it…
          Sorry but than you very much for your feedback.

        • Full Screen Movie Posters

          I'd like to be able to tap the movie poster and see it full screen without the overlays. The ability to zoom in would be great too.

            It’s not something we want to do right now. The poster is already almost fullscreen. We’ll add a photo gallery someday were you will be able to do all of that but not from the movie poster itself.

                  At first, it seems like a great idea but a lot of people also have movies in their collection that they didn’t watched yet. So we may address your issue but differently to be able to do something every user would want.

                • More intuitive Search

                  The search is absolutely terrible, you have to spell and space the movie title exactly right, please make it more intuitive. And if I search for a movie can all of its sequels should come up to? Would it also be possible for search results to have a sorting feature, e.g. Most Popular or Release Date.

                    Hi,

                    The search is done via trakt.tv API. For the moment, trakt is tweaking their server load and cache. They will improve the search results after that.

                    We can’t do anything our side for the moment.

                    Thanks for your feedback.

                    Regards,

                    Kevin

                        Unfortunately, we can’t do that. We are using trakt.tv as a data source and this would break our application flow.

                      • Add Missing Films

                        "The Gogs", for instance, is one such example that doesn't appear when searching, so it is crucial to be able to get such titles added as soon as possible with the relevant accompanying data and image(s).

                          This should be asked directly to Trakt.tv.
                          This is our data provider. They will soon release a new version with twice as much movies than they have now. And they are also improving the search feature.
                          Thanks for your feedback anyway ;)

                            This would be awesome but technically really hard. We would have to match file names with movies and support a lot of systems.

                                        An Android version is planned but I’m declining it from this forum since it is for MOVIST iOS related suggestions ;)

                                      • Add different editions to collection

                                        It would be great to be able to add different editions of a DVD. Currently Movist only shows I have a generic version of a movie. But sometimes I have a special edition, like the extended Lord of the Rings.

                                          We rely too much on trakt.tv to do that kind of thing. Maybe if they add the ability for us to do it…
                                          Sorry but than you very much for your feedback.

                                        • Add movie poster

                                          It would be nice if there was a way to add a poster for the movie that doesn't have one already.

                                            For the moment there is a bug Trakt side. Our aim is to always have a movie poster for you. We will de our best to hit that soon, we do not want you to do that, it should be done for you.
