Over the last 4 months or so, we have been working hard on upgrading the user interface of Indicine. The goal was to make the design simpler, faster and compatible with every device (Mobile phones, iPad/Tablet, Laptops and Desktop PC’s) , while also adding more features and making different sections easier to access.
The most requested feature was to make the website more colourful (images, videos etc), but the major downside to including a lot of images is that the site gets slower, especially for those who browse Indicine using a 2G internet connection. We were also keen on ensuring that we do not waste bandwidth (data) of our readers, so a lot of time has been spent on optimising the website including all the images.
With the new design, we have tried to strike that perfect balance and we are pretty pleased with the new design. The main page has more images, loads quickly and doesn’t consume too much data.
Also, the main page has tons of new features. The left section of the page has latest article updates, while the right section has links to almost every possible box office data that we currently have in our database. In the next couple of days, a few pages of overseas collections from various countries will be added too.
Some quick links to new features

Any feedback or suggestions are always welcome. A few minor changes to the comments section too. You can now use the reply button to directly reply to a comment. There are new icons for ‘thumbs up’ and ‘thumbs down’ – do tell us if you like these set of buttons or should we revert back to the previous icons?
And finally, we hope you like the new improvements to Indicine. It might take a few days of ‘getting used to’ the new design, but over time, we hope most of you like the new changes.
Thank you for your support!
P.S: We thought we’d add a few pictures of how the website looked in 2006 (Version 1), 2008 (Ver 2) and 2010 – 2014 (Ver 3).
