Recommendation apps and networks generally either try to give users recommendations based on some kind of automated system or give recommendations in a small niche market like books (Goodreads) or restaurants and nightlife (Yelp). LoveThis is a social network where friends can give recommendations to each other on almost anything imaginable (movies, TV, books, restaurants, and more).
LoveThis, a name that vaguely reminds me of a portion size at Coldstone Creamery (I keep accidentally typing Love It), helps users get recommendations from people that really matter to them. Users can save recommendations to their collections for later viewing and discuss those recommendations either in-app or via Facebook. LoveThis is displayed on a clean and easy-to-use interface.
The app even works for people that haven’t downloaded or registered in the iOS app. This is way LoveThis stands out from other recommendation apps and networks. The app allows users to send and receive recommendations in other ways including Facebook and email. This is a great way for new users to become exposed to LoveThis and to expand recommendations beyond the app itself.
LoveThis is free to download. Grab the app and start recommending anything and everything to friends.
Now that the iOS App Store has become overloaded with software, it has become rather difficult to separate the wheat from the chaff so to speak. The problem is that for every awesome application released, there are one hundred other garbage titles for it to become buried under. This is why AppGrooves decided to release their new recommendation tool, meant to only show users the best that the App Store has to offer.
Applying the ‘Hot or Not’ model for rating items to applications looks to yield a constantly updating list of the best software available on the marketplace. Users can even link directly to a specific program’s App Store page from within AppGrooves itself. If that isn’t customer service, then I don’t know what is.
Take an active role in letting others know what is amazing on iOS. User votes can truly make a difference. Give it a look, it might even save you a buck or two someday.
