    Movie database app IMBb has been updated to version 3.3, adding support for movie ticket purchases directly within the app for customers located in the United States. The upgrade also includes integration with the Amazon Mobile app, allowing users to buy a movie or TV show on DVD or Blu-ray that they have viewed in the IMDb app with the tap of a button.

    Additional celebrity bios have been added, along with a number of bug fixes. The iPhone version of the app will now offer one tap access to full cast and filmography details from movie and celebrity pages, and Watchlist functionality has also been improved.

    One of IMDB's better updates I think. The tickets go right into passbook, I'd assume?

    I guess that'means I can probably get rid of Fandango!

    I'm just estatic it no longer crashes automatically for iOS 7 users (or at least it doesn't for me).

    There's no mention of Passbook integration.

    Is there the same transaction fee of $1+ per ticket for the "convenience" when buying movie tickets?

    Yes! I was so excited about this. I use this app all the time and using it in Safari just wasn't good enough.

    So does Apple get their 30% cut on this?

    Was wondering if and when the IMDb app would allow purchasing tix.
    Looks like they simply make calls to some kind of Fandango API.
