Need Help Finding a Movie or TV Show? MightyTV Can Help!

Ever have trouble finding a TV show or movie you like? Good news, there’s an app for that called MightyTv.

This app is easy to use and is very much like the popular dating app Tinder. To use this app you are shown titles of TV shows or movies and then you are asked to swipe right, left, or up. If you swipe right, that means you’ve seen and like or love the choice. If you swipe left, you dislike the choice. You also have a third option of swiping up, which means you’ll skip that choice for now but may be shown it again at a later time.

With each title shown you tap the screen and then are shown details about the choice. Within this feature the length of the choice, when it was released, the rating, a short description, and where you can watch it is all shown. From this same screen you can actually click to begin watching that show or movie.

Over time you will receive recommendations based on what you’ve liked/disliked on the app. The app helps figure out recommendations that are truly personal.

The Mighty TV website describes the app as:

“MightyTV is a next generation discovery app that wants to help you find great videos. We are a team of technologists, artists and scientists who like to watch good stuff and we employ data science to create truly personalized experiences for our users. With so many streaming options, we know finding something to watch can be overwhelming.”

This app is available for free on iTunes, and, as of now, there is no information on whether the app is available to Droid users.
