We've just launched our first iPad app, and it's available free in the
Apple App Store.
Easy to use
Using the new Nanocrowd Movie Search app is easy -- enter the name of a movie you love and we'll suggest several channels that capture why other people enjoyed that movie. Pick the channel that matches your interest (and your mood) and then click on any of the movies in the list to get more information or to watch it on your iPad.
Here's a short demo/how-to video (try fullscreen and HD for the best view).
To watch all the movies in our application, you'll need an iPad and a Netflix streaming account.
We know WHY people like things
The new app is built with Reaction Mapping® technology, which we developed to analyze viewer comments about movies. These comments capture people's reactions to movies, and analyzing them allows Nanocrowd to understand not only what movies people enjoy, but also why they enjoy them. Understanding why is crucial because movies evoke a variety of feelings and emotions that are complex and can’t be captured by ratings or rental histories. More about our Reaction Mapping tech can be found at a previous blog post.
Watching movies instantly is a click away
Every movie in the Nanocrowd movie search app is available to watch instantly on an iPad from sites like Netflix, YouTube, and Internet Archive (with more sites planned).
Of course, we want to do lots more than just help you search for a movie, so we're already working on the next update to our app, where you'll be able to save the channels you like and then we'll automatically alert you if there are new movies available in your favorite channels. If you'd like an invitation to become a beta tester for this update, you can click on the links in the search app or send us an email now.
I hope you have fun with our new app!
