Rotten Tomatoes mobile app

Problem

There just does not seem to be a great all-purpose hub for all your movie/show favorites, and yet we all have access to so many streaming services, which is sometimes more of a challenge than a benefit. Often, when I think I have found the time to unwind and watch something, I am at a loss for what I should watch. I then end up doing “research” online to find something I really feel like streaming. Sometimes, by the time I am done with all my “research,” I have put so much effort into the search that I have lost interest.

Solution

What if there were a hybrid of all the review & watching platforms? An APP driven by Rotten Tomatoes ratings, and allowing the easy importing all your past ratings from your Netflix, Hulu, or Amazon accounts; or even for the user who does not have any of these accounts, that would allow them to rate movies directly though the app? It would then give you suggestions about what to watch next. Or you could just search by genre or artist (actor, director, studio), connect with your friends or celebrities (like the Spotify model), see what movies they have favorited recently, how they ranked certain movies, and find recommendations that way. See showtimes / which platform(s) you can stream from. Buy tickets via your favorite 3rd party platforms..

Browse Available titles

Scroll through titles that are available for streaming. User will have already indicated which streaming services they have accounts with when they created an account. 

User can see Rotten Tomatoes Scores from this screen to make quick decisions. Or they can bookmark a title immediately and save it for later in their “watch later” page. 

 

 

Sort by Genre

To narrow down the title options available for selection, the user can sort the titles by genre. Select as many genres as you would like to help find a title you are in the mood to watch. The more genres you select, the closer you get to finding the title you’d like to watch, and the faster you can find it. 

From there the user can then view the sorted titles and see more information about each one.

View selected title

Once you have narrowed down your options, select a title to view more detailed information about it, including categories such as Summary, Scores, Cast Members, Length, or Release Date. From here the user can add to their watch list or again start streaming the title immediately. 

The user could also add a rating to the title if they have already seen it and would like to further improve the algorithm of predicted scores for future titles.
