Have you ever met someone with strikingly similar taste? We discovered that they are the best people to help you decide ‘what to watch’.
Movie & TV show reviews and suggestions on the Taste app come from a community of like-minded users who share your personal taste.
Start by taking a quiz to ‘calculate your taste’. You can then search across thousands of titles to see two review scores, the first from ‘users like you’ & the second from ‘all users’. This makes it easy to identify the titles that match your unique taste.
And when you can’t decide on what to watch, you can browse by mood or genre to see what your community is watching and recommending.
By focusing on only the most relevant reviews and connecting you with users with similar taste, we remove the gender and commercial biases common on popular review and recommendation sites.

Ratings and Reviews
I have always said I’m not a movie person because all the movies my family watched growing up (especially my brother close in age to me and a movie junkie) I disliked or was meh toward. Since getting the app, I have begun to find films and documentaries that are well recommended to my personal tastes. It’s also fun to run across other people in the app who share the same tastes as you. I always remind myself that somehow Bridesmaids is someone else’s guilt pleasure too.
One thing that I would like to see in the future is the utility of the karma. Making people with high positive ratings “gurus” or adding in some level of at least making myself feel like I’m cool and know what I’m talking about in film. Also, maybe pair with a movie chain or something and get people to exchange karma for discounts or tickets to the movies?
Long review but worth it!
This is my first App Store review because I want to say that I am IN LOVE with this app. I go on it literally multiple times a day. It has really pushed me to learn more about myself and watch more film which is what I have been wanting to do. If you struggle with knowing what type of genres in movies and shows you like and/or want to discover more, this is the app for you. I love it and am constantly updating my profile.
Unfortunately, I gave it 4/5 stars for right now because I REALLY wish they would continually update the streaming portion of this app. They were smart enough to include this super useful labeling system to label which movies are streaming where but it’s never updated!! I constantly have to go through a bunch of my streaming apps to see what movies are available that I want to watch. While you’re at this, I strongly suggest adding TubiTV and Disney+ to the streaming section. I know services like Netflix are always adding and removing movies/shows but I think if this app can keep up with that, it would be near perfect.
If you read all of this thank you!! Again, I LOVE this app and strongly recommend it to everyone.
Great app, has changed a bit though
Best movie/tv recommendation app I’ve used; simple and to the point. Also seems to have gotten a critical mass which helps the system’s recommendation abilities.
I hadn’t used it in some months and when I came back the UI was a little different. Swiping left and right doesn’t seem to have specific actions anymore like marking as ‘not interested’ or saving. If it does there’s at least no visual indication like there used to be. I have to go through more taps to do these actions now. Also rating is not as frictionless where I can immediately tap one of the four ratings and move on. Now it’s a ‘post’ with more taps. For someone who has watched a lot and is usually rating vs. saving, this can get tedious. There are no more tap-able buttons on the cards either. I get that they may crowd the UI, but they were quicker.
Also it doesn’t seem like I can just view recs as a list anymore and sort by rating? Seems like it’s all in the card view and only my saved entries can be sorted. I don’t really want to have to swipe a deck of cards to get to stuff I want to rate. Perhaps this was done to increase responses across all movies so that ‘not interested’ and reviews alike could be gathered vs just reviews. Idk.
Great app, but seems like there is a little more friction lately. Keep up the good work though!
