[prMac.com] Bath, United Kingdom - Renniksoft today is pleased to announce that Movie Genius 4.5, their popular movie recommendation app for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch devices has passed the 250,000 user mark. Movie Genius provides more than 30 film genres to choose from and a database that includes tens of thousands of films.
With a unique movie matching algorithm that provides intelligent recommendations based on matching themes, plots, and audience opinion, Movie Genius users are prompted to rate films and indicate whether they liked it, didn't like it, or just want to ignore its listing. Over a quarter million users have received more realistic recommendations and discovered new movies they might enjoy using Movie Genius.
"The way (Movie Genius) works is kinda like Netflix in a way," says Steve and Raju of EPN.TV. "You go through lists of movie categories and specific titles and you say whether you like it or you don't like it or if you've never seen it, you just ignore it. And based on that, over time, the app will recommend movies of things you might see." (12 June 2012)
With Movie Genius, users can search upcoming movies, movies now playing in theaters, popular movies, and top rated movies. Listings in Movie Genius can include cast and crew lists, film overviews, biographies, filmographies, photos and movie trailers. Movie Genius also provides the film's MPAA age rating, its release date, its duration, language, ratings by audiences and critics, and votes. Further filters include the ability to customize the Genius screens and determine the movie recommendations based on the MPAA ratings. Additionally, users are informed whether a film is available for streaming on Netflix, Hulu, Vudu, Amazon, Crackle, Redbox, XFINITY Streampix, HBO GO, Showtime, Blockbuster, Youtube Movies, EPIX, and iTunes.
