Today, we announced Will I Like It?, an app for figuring out if you are going to like a movie before you have seen it. We created Will I Like It? when we realized that people were using the information on our site not only to find new movies to watch, but also to decide which movies they would enjoy.
With this new app, there are 3 steps to find out if you are going to like a movie. First, you fill in a form showing if you have seen or enjoyed the movies that are most like the one you are thinking about. Then you do the same thing for each of the movie's 3-word nanogenres and finally for its Movie in a nutshell. It will take you about a minute, and based on those answers we will let you know whether or not you are going to enjoy the movie.
We have already heard from users having fun with it:
“Will I Like It? is a very cool app…and spookily accurate. I used it on Facebook and whenever I put in a movie that I really liked, it just nailed it. Magic! I'll be back!”
“No more duds from Netflix! Now, I use Will I Like It? before I update my queue. And it’s easy to add to my Netflix queue right from Nanocrowd.”
“When I’m trying to choose a movie to rent, I just pull out my iPhone and use Will I Like It? to help me decide. Now I’m not disappointed when I get home to watch my movie.”
It works, because all of the questions are based on other people's reactions to the movie. The nanogenres, nutshell, and most-like lists come from our analysis of comments people have made about movies. Taking the Will I Like It? quiz is like being able to ask a thousand people what they liked about a movie so you can quickly tell if you will enjoy it.
I hope you will try it out and let us know if it works for you! Will I Like It? is available on our website at www.nanocrowd.com/quiz, on Facebook at apps.facebook.com/nanocrowd, and in a mobile version that you can play from your iPhone at www.nanocrowd.com/mobile. With the iPhone version, you can use it wherever you are to be sure that all the movies you watch are right for you!
