Too much work for not enough reward
by on July 21, 2012
There’s a strong fashion with apps nowadays to allow you to document your possessions – be its books on your shelf, clothes in your wardrobe or notches on the bedpost.
So it makes sense to be able to pop all the films you own into your phone and see then for future reference… or create a wish list of movies you want to get on your shelf.
You can enter titles by barcode, which makes the process a little faster – but as most people have loads of films, the process is really time consuming – more so when there’s no title that matches a bar code and you have to search manually.
However, you can sync your library onto the web, allowing you to check it out through fillib.com, and it works on multiple devices, so more than one member of the household can see which films they own before purchase.
The ways to use it are two fold: allowing you to decide on a film to watch, or see information, such as cast lists, on the one you’ve decided to pop in the DVD player. However, the former takes away from the joy of browsing the collection in real life, and the latter is much better served by the IMDB app.
Overall, we like what this app is trying to do, but needs features like being able to review films for your friends (and thereby suggest recommendations), have a random film generator to help you decide what to watch and trends on which films you might like on what days.
