Recommendation apps

Get social while you find great new movies

It seems to get more and more difficult to find a really good movie these days - especially if your taste runs to more than multi million dollar blockbusters that seem to dominate the multiplexes. There used to be the local DVD store down the road that would always have someone working that knows their stuff but they are few and far between in the digital age. So there needs to be another knowledge base of good films to tap into that ensures that lesser known masterpieces like Donnie Darko and Cloud Atlas don't slip through the cracks. We've seen plenty of movie recommendation apps over ...  More

Its like Goodreads for movies

There used to be a time when books like Leonard Maltin's Movie Guide and Moviehound were certainties to be found on the bookshelves of many homes around the world. But the last ten years or so has seen the growth of online content over the printed book and it's now far more convenient to search online than it is to try to find the book. The emergence of the app has made it an even more user friendly experience. Rinema is a movie review and recommendation application that is perfect for both the casual viewer and the film buff.   Rinema is a beautifully organized film app that serves ...  More

Search globally and locally for the best entertainment

They decided to develop this classy, informative, localized entertainment guide that encourages entertainers to promote their event and  gives the audience a place to find out everything that is going on around them or wherever they are planning on visiting.   Gablit solves a problem that people ...  More

Get your social community to compare worldwide product prices

Your local Main Street retailer isn't going to like hearing this but there are an awful lot of items that can be bought at much cheaper prices in other countries rather than at your local shopping complex. And while it may not be particularly good for the local economy, if you spent a bit of time shopping around online you can probably find your item at a better price in a store in a different country. The problem is, though...how do you get hold of your item after you've found it? PriceItBuy takes your online shopping social by connecting you with a network of shoppers all around the ...  More

Social recommendations from fellow users

It's often said that critics are simply failed performers who got out of the bed the wrong way before they saw the film, played the game or visited the restaurant but that's not really fair. There are some great reviewers around these days with a pure passion for the things they love - but they are getting few and far between. Personally, I have a rule that I never review anything that I don't like, whether it is an app, a movie or a piece of music. But, with everybody seemingly having an opinion about everything these days, it seems the most reliable form of reviewing might well be by ...  More

It's a 21st Century next generation interactive city entertainment guide

I wonder how many of you know what's going on in terms of entertainment in your city tonight. You'll probably think you have a pretty good idea but it's actually fairly difficult to get a grip on the multitude of events that are happening every night in a major city unless you buy an evening newspaper, the local 'whats on' guide and then check a few local Internet sites. Wikido is a very flexible  geolocalization-based entertainment search engine that hunts down all the entertainment in your city from countless websites whether it be a concert, a rodeo or sports event. What's more, ...  More

Show your emotional side in your content hunt

The Internet is a weird evolving object that springs up more than a few surprises. People can be even weirder. If you have read any Malcolm Gladville you will be well aware of the organized chaos that we live in. Take social networks for example. I remember a friend telling me not long after Facebook's inception to "just sign up" and it wasn't that long before its reputation grew and the "Tipping Point" was reached. Now it is getting close to a billion users and everyone from cute Kentucky girls to Sherpas in Tibet seems to have an account. Add to that the phenomena of Twitter and, more ...  More

A shelfload of movies and tv floating in the cloud

Having worked in the movie and video industry for quite a few years I can spot a film buff at twenty paces. They are often a bit of a loner and can have weird obsessions with b-grade actors like Dolph Lundgren or Sean Young. You know the type. AirShelf is a nice and simple free tv and movies application that is kept in the cloud. It's a place where movie and tv geeks of all persuasions can list and display movies, read reviews and watch trailers and then recommend their favorites to their friends in true film buff style.   It's a funny thing about the true film fan (or music or book ...  More
