[prMac.com] Berlin, Germany - You've probably experienced it: You're sitting down, ready to watch a great movie... But you can't seem to find anything good. FOUNDD 1.0 has been solving this problem with its web app by using recommendation algorithms to personalize content selections. The service has proven very popular, hitting one million ratings within 5 days after the launch last July.
Today the company is extending its service beyond the web and releasing its iPhone app. FOUNDD co-founder and CEO Lasse Clausen: "We're excited to be taking the first step towards the multi-platform discovery experience. Smartphones are always present when people are enjoying digital entertainment. So it's the logical next step to provide our service on the device and in the environment where people like to use FOUNDD most."
