Bath, United Kingdom - Renniksoft, creator of the popular Movie Genius app, today is proud to announce more free features and a simplified upgrade path for their movie recommendation iPhone software. Instead of recommending movies by matching cast or crew, Movie Genius actually compares the plots and themes of films and suggests ones that match in subject and style to past favourites.
Until now the free version of the app only gave recommendations for the Comedy film genre, but the latest release also provides War, Western, Adventure, Crime, Thriller, Drama, Music, Comedy, Science Fiction and Fantasy movie genre recommendations for free. In addition, a simplified upgrade path removes advertisements and enables the Family, Animation, Horror, Action and Sport bonus genre recommendations.
Backed by a database containing tens of thousands of films and powered by unique movie matching software, Movie Genius has been described as "one of the hottest new apps on the iPhone" by Top iPhone App Reviews and as "a very cool app indeed" by The Daily App Show.
"Movie Genius has only allowed limited recommendations in the free version up until now" said Clive Skinner, founder of Renniksoft. "But we decided to provide much more of the functionality for free to allow everyone to experience the type of movie recommendations you'd normally only get from friends or family."
Movie Genius also allows sharing of recommended movies via social media sites, renting or buying of films throught iTunes and viewing of YouTube trailers and clips. Film overviews, cast lists, photos, biographies, filmographies, ratings and votes add to the extensive information provided by the app.
