I really wanted to love this app. Primarily I wanted it because there are so many apps out there, and ones that I hadn’t thought about even existing and I figured this app would help me with that. The trouble of course is that far too often you get things that you wouldn’t even consider wanting. And that’s where this app fails.
You see, if you’re going to put out a trial version of a paid app pick the subgroup of apps most likely to have great and helpful applications. Putting out this app with only the Entertainment category may have seemed like a good fit for the most users, but it’s likely to also be the category with the most fluff and indeed it is. The only app that even got close to something I’d consider purchasing required me to have a TIVO. Since I don’t watch much TV it’s unlikely this app will be very useful.
In the end the Genius portion of the iPhone store and a bit of research and reading will likely be more useful than this app. Maybe the full paid app is better but this lite version did a horrible job of inspiring me to purchase it.
