Give your brain a break from remembering—or, in our case, forgetting—what you’re going to try next with Sofa. With support for books, movies, podcasts, videogames, music albums, and TV shows (phew!), the app leverages public metadata to help you create information-rich lists and track your progress. You can even save apps that catch your eye, a very convenient inclusion for certain app-focused professions.

ADHD Life-Saver

My life consists of a lot of moving pieces and commitments, add in a sprinkle of ADHD and I’m the most forgetful person on this planet. I’m always looking for a way to easily log and track the different books or shows I want to watch when I finally get some free time. I’ve tried things like written notes or the notepad app but always manage to lose or forget about them. I’m also a very visual person, so not being able to easily see the cover of the media makes it harder to recall what it was about or why I even wanted to watch/read it. Sofa makes it so easy to quickly log a piece of media without having to hunt down all of the information itself. The shelf feature allows you to store media of all kinds in one category. I use it to log all of the media I am currently consuming and plan to consume next. Adding the widget to my phone makes it easy to quickly figure out what I want to watch next without having to rack my brain trying to remember that movie I saw on Netflix last week. It’s a game changer. 10/10. If the developers ever make something geared towards students or working professionals (marking conferences or technical documents), I’ll gladly use that too. My work around is adding in a custom category and inputting the titles manually. Multiple shelves would also be cool. Big thank you to the developers for the awesome app!

The backlog to end all backlogs

Truly the app I never knew I needed. Sometimes I put media in my backlog onto my daily to-do list just because it doesn’t really fit into any better place, so this is the perfect app to curate every piece of the pie I’ve dipped a finger in lol. It really is a great concept for those days when you know you have a nice chunk of free time, but aren’t sure what to do with it. Plus, having lists across multiple media genres in this one app consolidates many of the backlogs that I’m keeping in different places.

The UI is clean and intuitive, and I love the resource lookup integration, as even obscure titles readily appear when I search for them. Adding custom items is a great feature, too.

I do wish we had the ability to manually reorder items on a list rather than only by A-Z or date added. I look forward to seeing what new media formats get added to the app!

Thanks so much for taking the time to write such a nice review! I'm glad Sofa is working out for you.
