  3. Growth Managers – ideas around what else can be done for an App like this
  4. Digital Marketing – Someone who can help can handle conventional marketing, PR, campaigns, alliances, partnerships etc

  10. Hey Rudrajeet,
    Here is my one day experience of using MovieBuddy.
    My overall experience is very good, content loads quick enough, UI looks good, I really liked that there is so much of functionality available to user.
    Below are some of my questions, suggestion and further thoughts.
    1. First and foremost how do I add new buddies who are not in my contact list, is it supposed to be like whatsapp where I can chat with my contacts only. Because I would love to be friends/follow people(at this platform only) who are not in my contact list but share my taste in movies.
    I even added your number in my phone’s contacts to see how contacts work hoping that you must have this app on your phone but it is not showing you as a contact in the app, I guess both persons need to have each others contact in their phone for this to work.
    (I got your number from one of the posts here only just to test this and not to stalk you or anything)
    2. Why does the app is showing all the released movies till date in “Now Playing” section, movies like Intersteller which released in November 2014 is shown in now playing section.
    Suggestion: You might need to handle this by creating a category of “Movies You Missed” or by changing the name of “Now Playing” to “Released”.

    1. Search currently shows the results when the spelling is accurate, which could be improved by “did you mean” kind of thing.
    Home Screen:

    Please increase the size of Menu icon, it is very small and hard to touch (or may be I have fat fingers).

    Movie Detail Screen:

    I think adding a menu icon on movie detail screen will improve the user experience(I also made a similarpoint for website too in my previous feedback).

    I am not so sure about these suggestions but just to state:
    1. I think changing the name of section that list contacts from “Contacts” to “Buddies” and similarly on movie detail page from “My contacts” to “My Buddies” will make more sense.
    2. I think placing “Now playing” category before “Upcoming” would make more sense, what do you think on this?
    3. It was not very intuitive for me to what “My Favorites” is, on movie detail screen under “Buddies say” tab. But later when I saw star icon besides contacts and then I understood that these are the favorites contacts (kind of best buddies). Maybe because I was trying to figure out everything on app in a single day. Just a thought on this, you see even Facebook categorizes my friends into close friends, friends, acquaintances and other categories but it did not asked me to do so at first place, it figured it out by calculating my engagement with those friends (I like their posts – they like mine, I get tagged in their photos – they get in mine etc.), you see its very subtle. I don’t know but categorizing friends into best buddies doesn’t sounds like a good idea to me, may be you can also calculate my engagement level with my contacts(Buddies) and then categorize them at your end.( This is a very far fetched idea and may be not helpful at all).

    That’s all I have for now, will continue to provide feedback.

    Cheers !!!

  11. eshan – this is awesome. you should be the official app feedback giver on trhs!! pls do take a look at our showcase section and see where you can contribute by giving feedback to rodinhooders!!

    pls write to me and claim your rodinhood laptop skin!!


  12. One more suggestion Rudrajeet,

    I have used many apps where the menu (like in your app) is accessible when I drag my screen (apart from touching the icon), in the same way as we can drag for “Upcoming” section from “Home Screen/Feed” in your app.

    This could be a neat functionality too, I think.



  13. thanks asha, glad to be of any help.

  14. Any updates on movie buddy Rudrajeet ?
