At REX, we think the best recommendations come from people you trust.
That's why we built our iOS app to be the easiest way to connect with friends to share your favorite movies, music, books, TV shows, videos, restaurants, bars, travel destinations, and anything else you like.
• Share anything that’s too good to keep to yourself.
• Save posts you want to checkout later in one easy place: the Vault. No more emails to yourself, sticky notes, or screenshots necessary.
• Tap any post to watch, read, download, listen to, purchase or learn more about it. No more dead-ends.
• Explore featured and trending content - or curated collections.
• Use the Map to discover places down the street, or on the other side of the world from friends and experts alike.
• Filter by category. See what you want, when you want.
Welcome to REX.
This app uses background location sparingly to let you know when you're nearby places you've saved. Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.

Ratings and Reviews
My go-to when I'm looking for recommendations
This app is many things: easy to use, well-designed, fun.
But the best parts are the whip-smart community, the expert curation by the staff, and the intelligent content. When I'm in need of something fresh for my mind - a good film, book, album, thing to see, video to watch, article to read - this is the place I come to.
This is a hidden gem where cool people with great taste come to share their goods. Unearth some great stuff from music, film, articles, podcasts, restaurants, and more from folks with a sense of discernment. Not sure why it's not more popular but maybe that's a good thing. And for chrissakes don't let the advertising brand managers know about it.
Nobody uses it/never updates
Traffic on this app has steadily decreased since I started using it over a year ago. I follow hundreds of people, but there will only be one or two posts added to my feed per week. The recommended feed (which promotes the coolest posts from the entire network) probably updates once every two weeks. Maybe less? It's a bummer because this app is awesome in almost every other way. There's nothing else out there like it. Maybe there's a reason for that...
