FULL PRESS RELEASE In a world where Blockbuster Video has been replaced by Netflix, Borders bookstores by Amazon and Virgin Megastore by Spotify, consumers have an overwhelmingly large catalogue of titles to consume, but increasingly struggle with what to stream. Most of these new services have their own recommendation systems, but they are largely built on related items which is not great for discovering something new. By linking real people, rather than items, those hidden gems can finally be found. itcher’s growing community, in conjunction with advanced collaborative filtering, provides personalised recommendations on films, books, music and games. By simply browsing and rating titles, itcher will generate a list of recommendations you’ll be sure to love. This free-to-download app gives recommendations based entirely on your individual taste. Rating is quick and fun: get your first results after just rating five titles. Once you discover a new title that you like the sound of, you can add it to a list for later. If you want to know more about your recommendations, itcher provides all the relevant information you need: reviews, ratings, similar titles, trailers, and much more. You can also follow users with similar interests and track their activities such as reviews & ratings as well as becoming part of a quickly growing community of 20k+ new users in January 2016 alone. itcher is the brainchild of Swedish Internet Entrepreneur Daniel Rovira. As a fan of independent cinema, Daniel recognised that there wasn’t really any dedicated place to discover new films and hidden gems. ”There was a void left after most high-street stores went under which has not been properly substituted in the online world. Most online services rely on similar items, making it difficult for people to find hidden gems that they are sure to love”. Daniel instead wanted to connect like-minded people to generate personalised recommendations, and itcher was born. “It’s incredibly exciting to see how the itcher community is reshaping the way we discover entertainment.” EDITOR’S NOTES ABOUT ITCHER itcher is a film, book, music and game recommendations app which uses the power of its community to provide personalised recommendations. itcher co-founder Daniel Rovira was born in Stockholm, Sweden, and holds a MSc in Economics.
