Ratings and Reviews

Me to We

Great visualization and potential!

A great way to visualize movies and their connections, somewhat like the Discovr apps, but shows more connections. Its actually more like the web-based Visual Thesaurus, but for movies. The visualization is clean, the use of space is good, and I like how touch is used to show more information. More control over the visualization would be appreciated but this is a wonderful start.

As a movie lookup app, I would give it 3 stars. I'm giving it 5 stars for the platform, which I think has huge potential for other uses - words, social networks, and other databases. I would love to see this beta develop into a platform for other content of the users choice. Huge potential!

I like it.. For me - to be able to create clear pictures - it would make sense to introduce views.. that would make it possible to show only the relevant part of the huge number of graph points and connections in a certain scenario.


Very cool, needs an update.

This is a very neat data visualization of actors, filmmakers and their relationships to their films and each other. However on the iPad 3 there are some display issues. Also the database that this app draws on for it's information is not as complete as the IMDB, and lots of "smaller" movies are not represented, making this less valuable as a research tool, and more of a proof of concept.
