Amen, the app launched at TechCrunch Disrupt designed to find out the best of everything on the planet, has been in closed private beta with over 3,500 users, but it has finally fit the iPhone app store officially.
Here’s how it works. You fire up the app on the iPhone or web browser and say a person, place or thing is “the best” or “the worst” ever, like like, the Best Dubstep track ever. Or perhaps, as actress Demi Moore (a beta user) puts it, “After Sex is the Best State For Amening Ever.” Hubbie Ashton Kutcher – an investor – “Led Zeppelin is the best rock band ever.” You can agree with this statement with an “Amen”. But with a “Hell no” you have to suggest an alternative answer. It’s a rigid structure, but you can post whatever you want.
Amen is all about continually getting more finessed data since each statement is a structured data point.
Amen has raised a Seed funding from Index Ventures and Ashton Kutcher and has a team made up of ex Nokia, Twitter and MIT people. Here’s our full review from Disrupt.
