As a remote worker during the global pandemic, I found myself watching a lot more content from streaming providers. However, after I got through the classics, I felt almost overwhelmed by the amount of content I could watch. My friend, an actor, posts fun movie & tv reviews on IG, and I realized I would totally watch the things he's recommending because friends of mine have similar taste to me. I searched for a recommendation engine that would show me what my friends are watching and where to watch it, but couldn't find anything. I went from paper sketch to designs in two days, then mapped out the technical infrastructure and showed it to my friend Alaxic. Within a week we had a working prototype, and in under a month we were approved by Apple and Snapchat to launch!
We learned a lot from launching RECS v1, and we're working on a new iteration.
v2 coming eventually
