Popular social sharing application GetGlue has a new version available on the App Store that brings with it some great new features that should be of interest to die-hard users of the app. With this new update, users get a personalized TV guide for TV shows, movies and sports. Since you are using the app to check in to the things you watch the most, the app is able to discern the shows you like, and create a guide that works for your tastes.
The app also has a new recommendation engine that can help you find the best things to watch that are currently on. For users who turn their television on and mutter “there’s nothing to watch”, this feature should prove quite useful to you. Because the app has a ton of users, it has a good knowledge base to actually determine what is popular and what other lovers of the app are watching.
The new update also adds clips, articles, and photos to go with your favorite shows. This makes it more than just an app to check in to what you are watching. Now, it’s a complete tv and movie application with everything you need contained within.
The ability to check in to what you are watching has been cleaned up and streamlined. However, the app used to have the ability to check in to things like video games and other forms of media, but in an attempt to narrow the focus of the service, it now only features the ability to check in to TV, movies and sports.
Did you use GetGlue for more than just TV, movies and sports? Will you miss the ability to check in to other types of media? Let us know in the comments section below!
