Ratings and Reviews
I have always said I’m not a movie person because all the movies my family watched growing up (especially my brother close in age to me and a movie junkie) I disliked or was meh toward. Since getting the app, I have begun to find films and documentaries that are well recommended to my personal tastes. It’s also fun to run across other people in the app who share the same tastes as you. I always remind myself that somehow Bridesmaids is someone else’s guilt pleasure too.
One thing that I would like to see in the future is the utility of the karma. Making people with high positive ratings “gurus” or adding in some level of at least making myself feel like I’m cool and know what I’m talking about in film. Also, maybe pair with a movie chain or something and get people to exchange karma for discounts or tickets to the movies?
Great app, needs some vital updates
Important note- this is my first EVER App Store review. I have so many ~feelings~ for this app that I needed to say something lol. I’m a huge movie buff and therefore am known by my friends to be very pretentious with my taste- and this app has only helped me propagate that pretentious taste even more!!! I love it!!!
However, there are a few major bugs that have been pretty irritating in my usage of the app. Even after saving a movie into my watchlist, Taste will continue to recommend it to me. Over. And. Over. Again. I’ve saved movies 10+ times and still see them pop up on my feed. It’s really annoying. Along those lines, it seems as if the app has issues saving profile info & recommendations.
If I could also recommend a feature, I would say that some users have internal breakdowns when it comes to ranking movies that maybe aren’t so good but mean a lot to them as “Amazing”. Instead of the predetermined “guilty pleasures” feature, I think it would be a pretty good idea to just have a “guilty pleasure” button. Two birds with one stone, amiright?
But yeah, all in all, I think the idea and most of the reality of the app is brilliant. Some bugs (that I hope will be tweaked in the near future!) take away from the experience. Would give 5/5 stars without these bugs.

Thank you Matty.
We'll dig into the repetition issue...could you send us a message via our Facebook page? Need to dig a bit deeper to see where exactly you're seeing the repeat, might be a bug, might be the way the product was built, or might be a glitch in just your profile....we'll get to the bottom of it.
Separately, the guilty pleasure button is a brilliant idea. Might be a bit of a design challenge to get it into the screens, but we'll certainly consider it!
Takes too long to level up.
When I first downloaded the app I was so excited, as I absolutely love movies and always enjoy watching good ones, but often have trouble finding ones I like. The layout was very easy to navigate and really easy to use. But as I started to rate movies, I found it taking longer and longer to go up by one percent. I spent literally hours just going through the lists with very minimal increase in the percent. I finally got sick of it and decided to see how long it would take for me to get to level 2. I just repeatedly hit ‘meh’ to see how many it would take. Over one thousand movies later and I hit level three. It should not take over a thousand movies to get past level two, that’s just insane. I know it sounds stupid that I’m annoyed at how long it takes to level up on a movie rating app, but if it takes that many movies to get past the second level then there is no point in the level system in the first place.

You do not need to get to 100% or "level up" to get movie recommendations. In fact, upon answering the few questions when you signed up, the whole app is already personalized to you with match% on most movies. Increasing your profile only continues to help the system optimize recommendations for you (and hide the ones you've already seen). Hope this resolves your issue!
