Existing recommendation apps pretty much all suck. Generic content, ugly design, fake reviews, and plastered with ads. So we created a better and more fun way to find great recommendations – all in one place. We call it Friendspire, and we think it’s pretty awesome. Join now for free, and start finding great movies, tv-shows, books, and podcast recommendations!

* Start getting the best recommendations for movies, TV shows, books, podcasts No more endless scrolling on Netflix, browsing generic movie recommendations on IMDb, or having to look at Goodreads terrible UI (yes, we went there)

* Find out which streaming service any movie or TV show can be found on, and filter for services you have! So whether you have Netflix, Amazon Prime Vide, Disney+, Hulu, HBO Max, Peacock, Funimation or even Crunchyroll you can search for great movies and TV shows you know you can stream!

* Save all of your recommendations in one place. No more confusing notes on your phone! You will get a dynamic list that you can filter and sort with all the items you have saved for later! Looking for a great book for he beach? Check your saved! Are you the designated tv guide for family movie night? Check your saved! Want to discover a podcast for a long drive? You guessed it! Check your saved!

* Rate all of your favorites, and we will give you even better recommendations! We believe the best recommendations are personalized. So we use your genre preferences, who you choose to follow, and what movies, tv shows, books, or podcasts you like (or dont like) to find the best things for you!

* Discover curated lists and build your own, that can easily be shared in or out of Friendspire. This could be a list of “TV shows to watch with my love”, “Books I want to read this year”, or even just a great list like “Top Anime Shows You Will Love”

* Connect with friends or even make new ones. Always have their recommendations handy when you need them! Does your friend Raquel always know the best books to read? You can find them on her Friendspire! Need to find that podcast your friend Pedro mentioned (who never answers texts by the way). You can find it on Friendspire!

* Connect with inspiring tastemakers like Reese Witherspoon’s Book Club, IMDb, Screen Rant, BBC, Rotten Tomatoes, The Guardian Film Reviews, New York TImes Bestsellers, New York Times Movie Reviews, Emmy Awards, LA Review of Books, Oprah’s Book Club, Publishers Weekly, Amazon’s Bestsellers, Podcastreview, DiscoverPods and many many more!

Great app to communicate via reviews.

I recently started using Friendspire, and since then almost all of my movie, food etc choices have been based on it. You might be saying, isn’t it basically yelp. Here is what i have to say about that. The purpose is similar, but via Frienspire you can get a more personalized feeling. Also, instead of just restaurants, there are reviews on movies, shows, books, podcasts, bars and yes, restaurants. Another thing I enjoy is that the creators are actually active in the app. The make there own reviews and comment on yours with their own feelings. Last but no least, Friendspire has curated lists you can look at made by anyone, even celebrities.

Leo, thank you so much for your kind review! That is exactly what we strive for: a platform where you can find both a place to eat at and what to watch after your delicious meal! We think that this is far more helpful than jumping from one app to the next. I’m excited to hear your thoughts on our latest feature where you are now able to create your own list! We also tried to better personalization by adding the ability to choose your favorite genres as well as your streaming services! Let us know what you think (contact@friendspire.com).

An app that’s genuine and saves your time!

It's different from other apps in that you get to see reviews on multiple categories: movies, tv shows, podcasts, books, and food and drinks. And you can also invite friends! I like that you can filter movies and tv shows by either streaming service or genre. This makes it a lot easier when you need to decide what to watch.
I also like that it has lists like "trending movies," "all-time greatest movies," and "recommended by critics." And you really feel a genuine connection as you read the reviews. Overall, a wonderful app that makes you feel like you're looking at fun suggestions from friends.

My friends know what I like!

My favorite part of an evening with friends is when the conversation drifts to talking about favorite movies, shows, books, or restaurants. Who better to turn me on to new things than the people I know best, and who know me best? That’s why they’re my friends, right?

I generally avoid social media because it’s so impersonal. There’s an illusion of closeness that just doesn’t do it for me. I was thrilled to discover this app because it takes a specific aspect of my personal network and amplifies it by providing recommendations I know I can trust (I’m looking at you, Yelp), right here in my pocket.

And Friendspire does this well. I especially like the bookmarking feature. I was always having a hard time keeping track of random notes about shows to see or places to go, but Friendspire lets me keep a list right alongside my recommendations.

Minor nit: when inviting friends vial email, the subject header should populate with something more enticing than “view profile”... am I revealing my age that I still use email to invite people?

Hi Brojo,

What a coincidence - that's my favorite part of an evening too :) I love to share my favorite documentary, book, podcast or whatever else it could be with my friends! We've created Friendspire not because we want to replace those awesome dinner conversations, but because we want to amplify them. We want Friendspire to be your helper, so you can remember what shows you've seen recently, and can share that with your friends, even when you are not able to tell them about it over an awesome meal (buhh.. Corona!). Thanks for using Friendspire and for writing such a great review.

Your feedback about inviting friends via e-mail has been noted, and we will look into it! I greatly appreciate your taking the time to tell us, and if ANYTHING else comes up, please don't hesitate to reach us at contact@friendspire.com. Have an awesome day!

All the best,
Founder of Friendspire
