Organize movie, TV, podcast, and book recommendations.

Sofa: Downtime Organizer

Lists for movies, books & more


This comprehensive media organizer corrals all the movies, TV shows, podcasts, albums, and videogames you’ve yet to enjoy into one handy spot.

What we love: How easy Sofa makes adding a recommendation. Type in a partial title if that’s all you have—the app automatically adds cover art, a synopsis, run time, and release date. From there, organize your picks into lists and groups to suit your mood.

Customize the look of your collection with Sofa’s whimsical themes.

Quick tip: Liven up your lists with Sofa’s colorful themes. (We’re partial to Terminal, of course, and VHS).

Meet the creator: Movie-night picks were a point of contention between Sofa founder Shawn Hickman and his spouse, so the couple decided to alternate. “At the time, I kept track of this in a notes app, but thought something more purpose-built would be better,” says Hickman.
