Going to the movies is one pleasant activity of spending your free time. However, we sometimes find ourselves regretting going to the cinema, or renting/buying that DVD. One reason for feeling that way is because we always enter a cinema with great expectations. Of course, it is mainly our fault, our opinion based on the movie trailer we viewed. Some people are just better at detecting bad movies from good ones just by seeing the movie trailer. Most of the times the movie is so bad that it just makes you walk out of the cinema even after watching half of it. We walk out of there, with a bitter taste in our mouth and a loud though in our head “If only I had known!” But those days are gone, now there is an app for this, as well. The Movie Tarot app allows you to enter the movie hall with valuable knowledge about the movie you are going to watch.
Movie Tarot app does exactly what its name states: just as tarot cards, it foresees how the movie fares at the box office and foresees its performance in the theaters. An app for knowing in advance whether a movie is worth watching or not is useful enough, but knowing this even before the release of the movie is already too… magical, too good to be true. But it is true, it is actually as downloadable as it gets.
Movie Tarot app came out in March 2013 and it hit over 2,000 downloads within 5 days of its launch, making it a must-have among movie lovers. The application is available for android and collects and selects data regarding movies from different sources such as: forums, blogs, reviews on the internet, Facebook and Twitter feeds, videos and other sites. The data is then analyzed and compiled in order to provide a valid and logical result. The company underlying Movie Tarot is named “RIAFY” and was founded by 6 engineering students.
The application gives a tarot card to every forthcoming movie that is about to be released. The original feature called “Happiness Quotient” points the percentage of people who have watched the movie and are truly happy with it. Obviously, the higher the Happiness Quotient, the better the movie is and the better your chances are of enjoying it. The application uses among other qualifications, the word “Sleeper” which is a term used when a for movie even if it has failed to get a good opening, it still runs with success for a long time. Movie Tarot app takes only a few moments to download and does not even occupy a lot of space on your phone, just 819KB.
