  1. Premature ratings

    Movies should only be able to be rated or liked/hearted once the movie is out. Ex: the green lantern corps comes out in 3 yrs but already has a 53% ❤️ by 23 people! Flixster suffers terribly from this too.

      MOVIST already asks that you mark the movie as seen to be able to rate it. The issue here is that trakt doesn’t enforce this and we just fetch the data.

        • Edit Movie Titles

          Allow for movie titles to be edited so as to allow collections to be in proper sequence. For example: Alien vs Predator: Requiem is listed before Alien vs Predator. If titles were editable, the issue could be rectified so that the title is listed in the proper order!

            If you want, you can sort your movies by release date instead of by title. To do so, you can pinch on a specific list to access the list options panel.

            Tell me if it helps.

          • Feature to search digital collection

            There should be a better way of listing all the existing digital movie collection from hard drives, portable drives and NAS. For example if you have 200+ movies already in your hard drive you would not like to search each one by one. The app should search itself by DLNA or other methods. There are other app which does is so there is no reason why this app can't. A must have feature.

            • Search from Browse section

              This seems like a weird omission. Looks like we can't search from within the Browse section, only from Library, which is just weird. Browse seems like the most natural place to search for movie information. Ideally we'd be able to search from anywhere in the app.

                I have no idea what the x and the check are for in the discovery screen, would help if they were labeled.

                  We need to make it more obvious. In the meantime, the FAQ is there to help. It is basically a like (give me more like this movie) and unlike (don’t give me more movies like that).

                • Rented Movies

                  I would like to be able to mark a movie as 'rented' as well as seen. Rented could be an optional new tab.

                    • List of films from Awards and Film Festivals

                      So many times i spot some great movies in the articles from Sundance Film Festival or Cannes Film Festival... but it takes forever for them to be released, and I lose track of them. This app will be irreplaceable if you could introduce "events" sections, with movies from major film events. Like the list of all Oscar-nominated movies, the list of Sundance highlights, the list of trending Cannes movies! Many of us who use this app are real movie geeks, that would be a great and useful addition! Plus, i don't even know any websites that provide clear lists of…

                        • Add a Favourites section!

                          Great App so far! I'm glad to see you are listening to the ideas being posted here so I hope you'll listen to this one.
                          I've enjoyed sorted films into ones I own and ones I wish to see and so on. It would be really great to have a list for favourite films as well!
                          Thanks :)

                                • Random unmarked movies on Searching List

                                  For someone using the app from start, its a waste of time and really annoying having to remember all movies and put them in the different lists. For that, the serch tool is very useful and would be awesome if it could :
                                  1) exclude from trending movies the ones you have already marked (there's no point on being there after that, right?
                                  2) make the trending list bigger and randomly replace movies (maybe for the most popular, the ones that most people have marked; that would accelerate the process of marking them way faster!!)
                                  3) option of hiding movies…

                                    • Be able to import a .csv file.

                                      I have my collection already in my computer via delicious library. However there is no mobile app. That's why I'm trying movist. I am able to export to a csv file any categories I want. If movist could import a csv file with two categories: title and UPC code, I could import 100's of titles with perfectly matching info immediately. Then movist does the lookup and artwork/ cover match, etc....

                                      • Windows 10 port

                                        It would be awesome if we could have a Windows 10 port of the app, so you could sit on your computer and manage your films as well.
