LikesExplorer is a cool recommendation engine which serves results based on the liking activity of your Facebook social network. Use this app to discover things to watch, read and do.
WHY YOU SHOULD GIVE IT A TRY:
- The app is free and ad-free.
- It is an easy way to keep track of what your friends are liking on Facebook.
- The next time you want to decide on a movie to watch or a book to read, you can do it in one click by browsing titles endorsed by your friends!
- Once your data loads, you can browse really fast.
WHAT IT DOES:
The app downloads your friends' likes and places them into these categories: Activities & Interests, Books, Games, Groups, Movies, Music and Television.
Example: For the Books section, LikesExplorer downloads ALL the books liked on Facebook by ALL your friends and puts them in one place. When you select the category "Books", you can view the top 50 books most liked by your friends. You will also have the option to sort and view recently liked titles. In a similar fashion, you can also view the most popular and most recently liked items in the other categories. In addition to that, you can instantly pull up detailed information for each item, with just a click!
As your friends keep liking pages on Facebook, your results will change too!. If the data cache on your phone is older than a week, it will automatically be updated.
This application uses Facebook's OpenGraph API for authentication and retrieving your friends' likes and groups for the above mentioned categories. If you are already signed in to the Facebook app on your phone, you need not sign into Likes Explorer again as you will be authenticated using Facebook's Single-Sign-On (SSO) mechanism.
THIS APP IS NOT FOR YOU:
- If you have poor 3G connectivity. Initial data loading might take a few minutes.
- If your friends don't actively 'like' pages on Facebook.
- If you have a lot of friends(>300), it might take a few minutes to load your data. If you are willing to be patient, thank you!
NOTE: Activities & Interests, Books, Games and Movies are loaded before the menu becomes accessible. Remaining categories are loaded in the background while you continue to use the app. It works best when used with a good WiFi internet connection.
Any feedback regarding this app is appreciated!
