Briefly: IMDb app gains ticket purchasing, Transport Tycoon for iOS
Tuesday, July 16, 2013 @ 1:14pm

IMDb has pushed out an update for its iOS app, adding the ability to purchase US movie tickets from directly within the app. A new "buy" link has also been added to movie pages, directing users to the Amazon Mobile app with a search for the item they were looking at. Other changes includes additional bios for celebrities, the ability to add release dates to a calendar by tapping on the Coming Soon bar, and fixes for numerous bugs.

Transport Tycoon coming to iOS later this year A short teaser video posted to YouTube has confirmed that Transport Tycoon will be coming to iOS devices later this year. First released for the PC in 1994, Transport Tycoon challenges players to create a transport empire by building transport routes for moving passengers and various goods. The teaser reveals little other than the game is actively in development, however anyone interested in staying up-to-date on the project can sign up for a mailing list on the game's official website.
