It’s Friday night after a long week. You just want to grab something to drink, sit down, and watch a movie. Nothing too deep. Nothing violent. Maybe a comedy. And so the thought process continues as you get online and start searching for something to watch. Simple. Then it happens. 10 minutes goes by, then 20. Frustrated you think, “There’s nothing to watch!” On to plan B: Checking e-mail, trolling the web, World of Warcraft, scrolling through your TV channels.
Picking up your shiny new iPad, you point your browser to search.nanocrowd.com and type in “The Proposal” – a movie you loved. “Chemistry Sweet Adorable” sounds like what you’re in the mood for. You see a channel full of movies which include some of your all-time favorites. But then you notice one you haven't seen “One Fine Day” – Hmm… something you may not have thought of, but it sounds good. You watch the trailer and decide to watch it instantly. Nanocrowd launches the movie, available from Netflix, and off you go to enjoy your movie. No login. No hassle.
If you have an iPad and love to watch movies but hate the hassle of searching and finding one to watch, pull out your iPad, open Safari, and browse to our new movie-search application (search.nanocrowd.com). We currently link to movies from Netflix and YouTube, and we're working on linking to more sources.
At Nanocrowd, we actually understand why people like movies (for more details, see our earlier blog post) and because we understand why, we can make quick and accurate movie recommendations without the need for you to give us pages of profile data or provide us with movie ratings.
We know that on Friday night, after a long week, you’d rather be watching a movie than spending time looking for one. Try it out and tell us what you think.
