  1. Focus search bar on double tap of search tab

    Hi, when searching for something it can be really uncomfortable having to reach all the way up to the search bar, just to go down to the keyboard again. Especially with phones getting bigger.
    I’d love to be able to double tap on the ‘Search’ tab on the bottom bar to put focus on the search bar, allowing me to stay in the keyboard area the whole time.
    The behavior would be:
    - Hit of ‘Search’ tab when not on Search Page: Open Search page
    - Hit of ‘Search’ tab when on Search Page: Put focus on the Search bar…

    • Barcode scanner

      Would it be possible to use for example the Amazon API to enable scanning of DVD or Blu Ray barcodes in order to add films to the 'watched' list quickly? Currently I have to manually search for all the films I have on DVD, whereas scanning them with my phone could be much quicker. I'm not sure if it's possible to scan a barcode (as opposed to a QR code) on a phone camera, but it seems plausible?

      • Add a way to jump to a day/month/year/etc. on the diary tab in the iOS app

        Similar to how on the website you have the option to click on a diary page number to jump far back into your log, it’d be nice to have this option on mobile. It takes forever to scroll all the way through your diary entries in chronological order, especially if you’re a longtime user.

        • Look at (and filter) top rated films from multiple users silultaneously

          Use the sort and filter options for multiple users simultaneously. Basically I would like to look at the top rated films from all the people I follow in a single list and be able to filter them by watched/not wached, genre, etc

          • Similar Favorites

            It would be cool to see if there are any other users that have the same 'Favourite' movies as me. From one match to all 4.

            I think having 4 out 4 favourite movies the same as someone else would be cool to see as you obviously have similar taste. This could also improve the social side of the app too.

            It might also be cool to see some stats in common on users a profile, such as how many movies you have both watched, rated, reviewed.

            e.g.
            You have 50 movies in common!
            You have 35 movies with the…

            • where to watch

              Maybe a little naughty. But there is an app i use called JustWatch. It allows you to see what movies have been added to a streaming service (Netflix, Prime Video, Shudder, Now TV, etc.) it's updated everyday.

              Also, when searching for a movie it will show you what service you can stream it from or even where you can buy it and how much.

              Just some ideas :)

              • Add a feature

                It would be great if you could add a feature to be able to sort movies by language. There are so many to go through when searching, I’d love to be able to eliminate all the films not in a specific language. That way, if I want to find all French films, I can do so more easily; or all English language films, etc. Also, it would be great to be able to search major releases or by production company or by country of origin. Thanks!

                • Add a Notepad/Canvas feature that allows you to draw in your reviews.

                  What if you have an idea in your head, but you can’t express it unless you draw it?

                  It would be awesome to allow sketches or drawings especially on the iPad version of the app. That could potentially interest even more people in the app because some people want to review a film, but are far more equipped to express their thoughts and feelings when they use a visual medium such as drawing or painting than they are when they write a text based review. It would still be hugely social because this whole other mode of expression could start…

                      • To be able to sort lists by preference

                        Could we choose the sorting of lists? I would very much like to be able to sort my lists in the order that I wish and that this change remains final until another change.

                            • Push notifications for favorite users

                              It would be a useful feature to allow a user to turn on push notifications for there favorite users, so they can always see their reviews!

                              This feature would be none-intrusive as they could be turned on/off

                              It would look as follows, somewhere on a users profile:

                              Turn on push notifications?
                              O When a review is published
                              O Commented on one my Reviews

                              The list is subject to anything really!

                              Best regards

                                I'm not sure if there are issues with copyright, but showing a slideshow of photos from the movie or attaching the trailer could make it easier for us users to identify if we really have seen the movie!

                                • User List Collections

                                  Much like how Instagram let’s you put your saved posts into different categorical collections that a user can name, I thought Letterboxd could do the same with a user categorizing their lists into collections instead of scrolling through a members endless lists.

                                  For example, all the lists I have about directors I could place in a collection I would name “Director Rankings” or the same with actors with a collection called “Actor Rankings.” Or if I had separate lists about how many Blu-ray, DVD or Criterion’s I own those lists can be found in a collection a user could name…

                                  • I keep getting click bait spam on your app

                                    I’m really enjoying using this app and I’m new to the platform. So it’s worrying me that I always get the same type of click bait / phishing type of advert that claims I’ve won an iPhone cause I’m the 1000th customer. Please fix this, if I’m investing time and putting my info into this app, I need to be assured that data isn’t completely being ransomed to anybody. I’m not ignorant I know cause it’s free we can expect adverts but click bait spam ads, really ??

                                    • Add Profile Header on Website to App

                                      I'd like to see the Profile Header that displays the number of Total Films / Films this Year / Lists/ People Following / Followers that appears on the website be added to the App when viewing a Profile.

                                      • Force Touch

                                        This may be a little extra, but I think a nice feature would be to utilize the "force touch" feature on IOS. Like in the app 'photos' where you can 'force touch' a photo in the camera roll to view it full screen, I think it would be cool to 'force touch' a movie to bring up the movie details. Not a huge priority but a suggestion to make the app a little more efficient.

                                        • iOS app: Filter Film List by Single Rating

                                          I would love to have an option to sort the films you have watched and rated by a single rating. I want to see only the films I've rated 1 star and only the films I've rated 5 stars. It would be a nice feature to add. Keep up the great work!
