The Spoke: The Best Recommendation App
The Spoke is a social recommendation app that is meant to help you discover new movies, shows, and restaurants to try out.
Do you ever find yourself scrolling through Netflix looking for something new to watch, but there are so many options that you resort to watching “Friends” or “The Office” for the 6th time in a row? Or maybe it’s date night and you nor your partner can decide what’s for dinner. Our App of the Week, The Spoke, is the best recommendation app to help you make decisions easier.
The Spoke’s goal is to help you do one thing: make your next decision. This recommendation app is meant to help you discover new movies, shows, and restaurants in a more authentic way. Sure, you can go to Facebook and post, “I need recommendations for a new show to watch on Netflix” but the responses will vary across all genres. The Spoke is designed to help you discover exactly what you’re looking for, all with the help of your friends. This social recommendation app allows you to sync with your friends to not only see what they recommend but also to make group decision-making easier. “Spoke Score” is a personalized score for movies and restaurants that is based on the average of your friends’ ratings.
So how does The Spoke work? The service has lists upon lists varying from “Top Date Spots in NYC” to “Underrated Movies.” The Spoke is very similar to Tinder, except you’re swiping for your next movie rather than for your next date. Pick a list and swipe right if you’re interested, swipe left to skip, or tap stars to give that underrated movie a rating. After you’ve swiped through a list, your interested choices will go to a “Saved” list for future reference. Even better, you can sync with your friends to not only see what they recommend but also to make group decision-making easier. Once you’ve found something you like, you “tap to do;” The Spoke connects with services like Netflix, Postmates, and Fandango to help put your decision into action.
Though it’s still in beta, The Spoke is on the rise and helping fix decision-making. With a 4.8/5 star rating in the App Store, Forbes featured The Spoke as the “recommendation engine you need to fix decisions.” iDownloadBlog featured The Spoke as the app that makes it easy to find new things you’ll love.
