New app tracks the movies you haven’t seen (yet)

Have you ever found yourself staring at the Netflix or Amazon Prime Video screen on your TV, or drooling a bit while you page through the Redbox screens at a red kiosk near you?

It’s frustrating, especially when you’re always hearing about movies that you must see right now, but can’t seem to remember when you’re on the couch (or sofa, get it?) with a remote in hand.

The developers of Sofa have you covered, though, with a new app aimed at helping you find and track all those flicks you haven’t seen, but want to.

The app’s functionality is fairly simple. You can browse through topical lists or search for specific movies that you might be interested in. Once you find a title you like, you can add it to your List, which then will become the first place you’ll look when you’re wondering, “Hmmm. What movie should we see tonight?”

The categories are interesting, like American Film Noir, Strikes a Chord (music movies), and Cheeky Horror Flicks. Of course, there’s also the Coming Soon and Now Playing sections, which will let you add films to your list to check out later via rental or On Demand, instead of paying $10 and up to see it in an actual movie theater.

What I really enjoy, though, is tapping through to the folks involved in a film. I searched for the Wachowskis, found Lana Wachowski, tapped on her name, and found all the great films she’s been a part of. I forgot they had done Speed Racer!

Whether you want something to fuel your Netflix and chill times with a sweetie or a way to keep track of all those “aha!” movie moments, Sofa has what you want and all in an attractive package.

Be sure to check Sofa out for free right now and never wonder what you’ll watch tonight again.
