    My only complaint

    Sometimes I get logged out of my account for literally no reason. It doesn’t happen as much as it used to, but it’s very annoying when it does happen. Other than that, I love using the app to keep track of all the movies I watch and I love using tags to make collections of movies. I’ll put tags of the actors in movies I know that I watched, so I have a collection of Jennifer Lawrence movies and I know which ones I’ve seen and which ones I still need to watch. I know I probably don’t need this, cause who can’t remember which Jennifer Lawrence movies they’ve seen? But I like to visually see all of the ones I’ve seen together in one place, maybe that’s just me being weird, but it can’t be too weird if it is a feature in the app.

    Goodreads for film, but far better than Goodreads

    this app is my favorite app to review movies, keep lists, and keep track of the things I’m watching. I tried out Goodreads (for books, obviously) and their mobile site isn’t nearly as streamlined. I love italics and bold functionality, list-making, and the half-star rating system. Every once in a while I experience a bug, but most of the time it works just fine. I’m not a shill or anything, my college film TA just recommended it and I’ve been hooked ever since. Must-have for film students and movie lovers. Even casual moviegoers would benefit from logging what they’ve seen and keeping track of reviews so they don’t waste money.

    Interface Idea

    I want to say that I absolutely love this app. I love reviewing movies, making lists and seeing other people’s reviews of movies I want to see in the future. However, I think the ability to see those reviews should be improved. I think the interface should be like a Twitter or instagram feed. You should scroll to see the reviews and it should laid out like the reviews page of a person’s profile on this app. This can make it easier to read reviews of people you are following. You can also easily comment on the review and like it if you wanted on that screen as well. I hope this idea could be implemented in the future!

    Amazing interface with no bugs

    I’ve been using this app for about 4 years now and have never had any problem finding the information I want or using its logging features. I love how easy it is to navigate to exactly what I want quickly. It packs a lot of functionality and data into an app relative to similar apps (looking at you, GoodReads). The only reason I may ever need to use my desktop for this app instead is if I need multiple tabs. Otherwise, this app pretty much seamlessly made the whole website’s utility available on mobile, and with a very smooth and intuitive interface.

    Movie Twitter

    Delightful (and occasionally useful) reviews, a nice sense of community, and — my favorite bit — an excellent, easy system to keep track of both the films you’ve seen and want to see! I would love to be able to add a movie to my watch- or seen- list from the search results page, instead of having the extra two steps (silly, but sometimes you’re adding a film to your list on the fly!) or clicking into the film, and then into the “rating, watchlist,” etc. options. But no complaints; this app is the one app to rule them all. Heart eye emojis for days; I recommend this app to everyone I know.
