Finding a movie can be time-consuming and challenging in the decentralized streaming world, where users hunt through numerous platforms.
MovieFinder addresses this issue by offering personalized movie recommendations through an initial movie quiz and rating system. Users input their streaming subscriptions, and the app provides tailored suggestions, with options to filter by Rotten Tomatoes scores and genres.
85% of U.S. households now have at least one subscription to a movie streaming service, such as Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime Video, or HBO Max. Out of that percentage, users have an average of four streaming service subscriptions, according to the Deloitte Digital Media Trends Study.
Users want personalized movie recommendations in one place, considering their streaming service subscriptions and Rotten Tomatoes scores, as finding good movies can be challenging.
I prioritized essential details while optimizing real estate, reducing the levels of "menu diving," and scrolls/clicks required to accomplish actions.
I ensured core app functionality is accessible through multiple physical interactions. For instance, users can rate movies in the 'Rate Movies' tab by tapping or swiping buttons.
Another accessibility consideration was adding a dictation button for speech input in quiz and search fields.
After app development, the next steps would involve extensive testing for user experience, functionality, and device compatibility.
