What does the filter category "edition" mean?

It may not be obvious when you only use the iOS app, but the text in the header can actually be comprised of three fields:



You will always see the Title (in this case The Hands of Orlac).
There can also be an Original Title, shown in parenthesis (here Orlacs Hände).
And there can be an Edition (here The Master of Cinema Series).

The Edition field is for distinguishing between DVDs, and for indicating special versions and collections (for example The Criterion Collection, Widescreen, Full-Screen Edition, Director's Cut).

I hope this makes it a bit clearer. The screenshot is from the iPad app, but I assume that it looks more or less the same on an iPhone.

Interesting. So anything after a colon in a tittle is "the edition". Seems to work for me.

Works for titles in your database having a colon, but not for custom titles I create with a colon. Still nice to know.

Doesn't seem to work for all titles in your database having a colon. I guess it has to be entered as an "edition" and not just a colon in the title. Still nice to know. Similarly the "original title" shown in parens is useful to know. Thanks.
