What's New

This update is all about making Tastebud even more useful.

SAVE-FOR-LATER: Find a recommendation for something you might want to read, watch or listen to at a later date? You can now easily save it right to your profile.

IMPROVED SHARING: Recommendations will now look even better when you share out to Facebook, Twitter or via text. Plus, you can now share directly to some of your other favorite apps, including Pinterest, Tumblr and Evernote.

All of this new functionality can be accessed from the 'share arrow' at the bottom of any recommendation card.

App Description

Tastebud is a simple and fun way for friends to share recommendations on movies, music, books, TV, podcasts and apps. Ask friends and other trusted sources for specific recommendations or share your current obsessions.

If you’ve ever found yourself frustrated by not being able to find something appealing to watch, read or listen to, then Tastebud is the app for you.

Make/get trusted recommendations on:

- movies
- songs/albums
- books
- tv shows
- podcasts
- apps

Need a good beach read to help you relax while on vacation? Craving a compelling drama to binge-watch during a rainy weekend? Just ask your friends on Tastebud and get notified as the recommendations come in.

Or, impress your friends by pointing them to that obscure 80s romantic comedy they’ll enjoy with their significant other, or to that gripping true-crime podcast that will make them wish their daily commute were longer.

Discover great entertainment content by following people you know and other influencers.

Save recommendations you like under your profile for easy reference later on.

Customize your feed by filtering out any of the six entertainment categories you’re not interested in and you can even choose to see only recommendations or only requests.

Get notified when friends need a new recommendation, when someone responds to your own request for a recommendation, when a recommendation of yours is liked, and when you get a new follower.

Easily share recommendations and requests not just on the app, but out to Twitter, Facebook and your phone contacts as well - Tastebud posts are fully viewable on the web!
