How often do you get recommendations for movies or TV shows from your friends, only to forget them by the time you visit the DVD store? These apps will help you keep track of what you’ve seen and offer recommendations right when you need them.
Working as a movie recommendation engine that learns about your tastes, Foundd requires some time to set up. After rating a bunch of films, you’ll be able to see a tailored "Watch List" of movies that you might like.
You can also create a group list with up to five people on it, and Foundd will suggest films that you will all enjoy. If you’re a regular movie-night person, or you have trouble agreeing on a movie to see with friends, this is a good way to pick your next flick.
Goodfilms is a movie recommendation engine built by friends of Attendly, which takes an original approach to the ratings system. Each film has two ratings: a ‘critical’ rating out of five stars, and a ‘re-watchability’ rating with five happy faces.
For each film, you can view the ratings on a grid, showing both the likelihood that people would watch it again and the actual quality of the film.
This makes choosing a movie to watch a very different process, as you can narrow it down depending on whether you’re after a feel-good romp or a high-brow doco.
Miso started out as a social network site for movie and tv-show lovers. You "check-in" to share with your friends the TV shows that you are watching. LIke or comment on particular episodes, and keep track of your showreels.
A new interesting feature that has been added is SideShow. If you love to find and share trivia about your favorite shows then this is the best invention ever.
When you check-in and watch your favorite show, these synchronized bits of trivia will show up on your phone so as to not interrupt your TV viewing.
If you’re a bookworm, you’ll probably enjoy this highly-focused network.
Goodreads is the king of social reading. You can share your progress as you work through a book, create a to-read list, and add ratings and reviews to books you’ve read.
