IMDb Helper 1.0b3 (Mac)
This product has reached "End-Of-Life" status.No further updates will be provided. See below for known issues. The source code has been released to the public domain without license. You may modify the source code freely. This simple application eases the search and retrieval of information about movies and TV shows from the Internet Movie Database (IMDb) Web site. I developed it because I wanted a way to retrieve only the information that I was interested in for a movie/TV show, namely cast and crew, memorable quotes, trivia and goofs. Known issues: If nothing seems to be happening when displaying a title's info, that is normal. The app is still downloading data from IMDb. Download times depend on what Internet connection you use. Check the status messages and/or Internet Connect (if you are using AirPort or a modem) to ensure that there is network activity. All of the menu items do not work, except About, Hide and Quit. Some strange codes e.g. #233 may appear in titles. That's normal. I haven't figured out how to translate that into human-readable characters yet. However, displaying these titles' info may cause the app to crash. Future improvements: Multithreading! I think that this is especially important for an application like IMDb Helper. Custom application icon. Improved About panel. Help contents. Saving movies/TV shows to a favorites database.
