Countless apps have tried to nail down the recommendations space, with not one rising to dominance. Today, another launches out of public beta to try and win the space that’s been so highly sought after.
The app is called Vowch, and the main idea is that users can search anything they like, without any limitations. For example, if you want to like Rachel Berry on Glee, but you’re not too keen on Lea Michele (the actress), Vowch can make that happen for you. If you want to like Angelina Jolie’s lips, you can do that, too.
Once you’ve searched for your passions, Vowch helps you put together an interactive package around that item, restaurant, place, song, artist, or whatever.
You can search images on Google as a cover for your Vowch, or add in camera roll photos, and add a status update. You can even add in extra media like a video from YouTube or more images simply by searching on google within the app itself. Users who are Vowching for artists can add music, and then share on Facebook or Twitter.
What’s interesting is that, without any limitations on what you can Vowch, your stream of recommendations becomes a lot like a user profile, representing you through your likes.
In the stream, users can see what their friends are Vowching for, as well as like, comment and Re-Vowch.
Vowch also has a leaderboard of recommenders, called the Boss List. This shows who has the most Vowch points, received for engagement with your Vowches, in each category.
If you’re interested in getting your recommendation on, head on over to the App Store and check out Vowch.
