Whenever you have that question, "What should we watch?" - WatchBuddy is there for you.
We're a team of ninja engineers and avid movie lovers (yes, we're writing this on the Iron Throne). Our goal is simple: instead of spending 20 minutes or close to an hour scavenging the web for "best movies 2018" -
we want you to get that instantly, at your fingertips. And maybe, just maybe, with all that extra time get some ice cream for that movie you're about to watch.
WatchBuddy is dead simple. When you open the app, we present you with a few movies that you can swipe left or right on, indicating your like or dislike of that movie. Your decisions go through our magic sauce, and then we present you with some recommendations. Done.
But wait, there's more! As you browse, save and even click "Watch Now" we learn from you and our algorithms get better at predicting which movies you'll love and which you don't want to see.
You see, we're like that "buddy" (ah we said it!) that knows you so well that you know if you call them, they'll give you a good movie recommendation. The only difference between them and WatchBuddy, is that they're human and we're not... we've seen all the movies, they've seen only a handful of those available. And though WatchBuddy may not be able to give you a hug like your buddy during a sad movie, you'll definitely be yearning to give WatchBuddy a hug the next time it saves you fidgeting on the internet for hours to find your next movie. Enjoy!
Ratings and Reviews
Poor App, not sure why it had a pre-order.
This is a very poor app. The only way to login or register (to create a watchlist) is through Facebook. I do not use my Facebook account anymore, but I keep it around mostly for photos, but giving users only one way to register with the app through Facebook is a bad choice that I’m sure will be expanded. Anyways, I clicked through to sign into Facebook, but I entered my info and I kept getting an error message saying I needed “Developer permissions” or something similar. So the only way to login with your app is broken. Also, it’s not optimized for the iPhone X even though it just released. Whenever scrolling down the list of movies, after clicking on a movie to read movie synopsis, whenever you press the back arrow in the top right corner, it resets you back at the top of the page. So you have to scroll down and find your place again on the list. This app is really bad, I don’t see it getting better.
Nice look and feel
I also don’t use Facebook. Bummer.
The demo is pretty pointless. Who says no to any of those?
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
