The App for Android is great, but it would be great if it could swap to Landscape mode. I like to type up a review using a bluetooth keyboard, but it is really difficult when the app will not switch modes.1 vote
We put this on hold for technical reasons. Android doesn’t handle orientation changes gracefully: in-progress requests/responses get killed with no warning, which isn’t a great user experience.
Hi. You keep deleting my comments automatically, I guess it’s because they’re written in hebrew. I suggest you fix that.1 vote

Is it somehow possible to not publish my review to my Facebook profile but to my Facebook site?1 vote
Unfortunately this isn’t a high priority right now, but we’ll keep it in mind.
It appears that my Amazon Prime filter under Services on my Pro account is no longer showing me just the free streaming options! It appears it is also showing paid options which is a bummer. Pretty sure it’s a bug. Mind looking into it for us?1 vote
Is this also an issue at GoWatchIt.com? We get this data from them. Mind checking a few titles to see if they have the same issue there? Thanks.
Native apps: show the actual number of times a person has watched a movie (if more than 10) instead of showing "!"
It's best to show the actual number of times I have watched a movie if I have seen it more than ten times. Right now, a movie with more than 10 watches just gives me a "!" sign instead of the actual number. It's a good way to keep track of movies and I thought that that was the point of this website.1 vote
This was a quick shortcut at the time, but would be good for us to address.
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 ??1 vote
Where are you seeing the adverts? In web views inside the app? The app iteself does not serve ads at this time.
This could happen with Apple’s ‘Marzipan’ project — which would allow us to bring our iOS app to the Mac desktop. It would have the same feature set and UI as on iPad.
Move the watch/watched and add to watchlist button to movie page, not inside plus button. Hitting plus button every time is annoying.1 vote
Note that you can long-press any poster (even on the film screen) to open the action sheet for the film and access these controls.
Not a big deal, I just got the "Please validate your new Letterboxd..." email twice.
Thanks, looks great so far!0 votes
At the moment if you re-visit the site but haven’t validated your email yet it will re-send the validation email. This was intended for the case where maybe someone had lost the email etc… but a lot of people have been getting multiple emails so we need to change the way this works. Potentially we may just change it to show a message on the site when revisiting if you haven’t validated yet.
I've submitted this problem before (and it's been fixed before) but once again I'm getting the problem where when I go to add a note to an item on a list I am creating the entire webpage will appear inside the 'add note' box.
Also, after I (temporarily) take care of this problem, whenever I add a new item to the list, it gets added twice.0 votes
We’ve been unable to reproduce this issue in testing, which is frustrating. If you’re able to, could you please record a browsing session in which it happens using an app like Charles Proxy (charlesproxy.com) and send us the .chls file.
Charles records all the traffic between your browser and our servers, so will help us isolate what’s going on. It’s written by Letterboxd co-founder Karl von Randow (see our team page under About).
I'm sorry but I can't find anywhere else to post this.
I added the following to TMDB
On the 3rd of this month (5 days ago)
On the 30th of last month, which is now a week ago.
None of these have materialised on Letterboxd as yet.0 votes
We’ll check out why these aren’t updating in a timely fashion.
The periodic "Rushes" email is long enough that gmail clips it and you have to open it in its own tab to see the whole thing. I suspect a significant portion of your users are on gmail so it wouldn't hurt to keep the email within their limits.
Also, the rushes email shows "recent" reviews from my friends. But my friends seldom write reviews so it shows me the same three reviews from my same three friends every single week. I'd prefer you just say "your friends haven't posted any reviews lately" than have to see those again.0 votes
You need to be out of edit mode to add a new movie to your favorites.
So instead of:
edit > remove > add > reorder > save
edit > remove > save > add > edit > reorder > save0 votes
We’ll have a think about this. Apple’s approach is to enable delete and reorder in Edit mode. We’ve added the Add facility, but will see if that can be improved at some point.
In the cast section of a movie it would be good if it showed the actor or actresses name plus the name of their character in the film and also their headshot.
A couple of times now I've found that it's easier to use another app or the web to find who the character/actor was then come back to letterboxd.0 votes
We’re thinking about how to bring character images to the web as an option. Character names are there if you hover over the actor.
Character names will be in the next release of the iPhone app too, and are already in Android.
