Love it to death 5/5
Great for finding good tv shows and books! I was kind of at a dead end when it came to finding good books to read, so I downloaded likewise and now I have so much good stuff to read, the only complaint is that the “today” section is not very big I was hoping for a bigger list, but since I can make a post asking for recommendation it’s fine.
Noooo don’t 1/5
This app looks good but I trued to log on and I am not old enough for it and now I can’t log in to my account and it is is annoying
I love this app a lot! The only thing I could think of that could make it better would be adding music as one of the recommendations! But I know that would probably be really difficult to add to the app, and I love it anyway as it is, but it’s a fun thought :)
Love ❤️ 5/5
By Judy bloom just kidding
I really enjoy this app it helps me keep track of my reading and books I like. They also have a swipe option to help select new books to read. I do wish they had more to swipe through. Overall it is a really good app
Good for knowing where to watch 5/5
The app lets you know where a movie/video is streaming. I use this over googling it now, super useful!
I wanted to like this app 2/5
I have been wanting to start reading books for a LONG time, but getting recommendations from friends doesn't really work when all they read is horror. So, I thought I'd download the app. The interface is very nice and easy to navigate through the first few screens.
First, it has you choose what type of recommendations you want (tv/movies, books, and podcasts.) Then, you choose what genres you like. Then, the last step I could get to myself for books, was to choose 10 you liked reading. I dont have any. I realize that this may just be a "me" problem, but it makes me really sad because I want to get into reading more :(
Suggestions were not interesting at all 2/5
The suggestions are not relevant at all. Maybe the filters need to be more precise, something for sure needs to change. TV time is way better of an app if you want to keep track of what you’ve watched and get good suggestions based on your previous ratings.
Surprisingly Great App 5/5
I’m always skeptical of new apps I hear about but this is really well made! I’ve found some awesome movies and books with this.
Rating Filters 4/5
So far I like it, I do wish there was a way to filter recommendations by rating. That would help.
I’m very confused on this app. I put in books that I’ve read and liked before but don’t seem to get any recommendations??
First App I’ve Recommended to Friends in a While! 5/5
This app is wonderful! Im a huge book nerd, and I’m always looking for new recommendations based on what I like. The app’s algorithm gives you suggestions, but there’s also a community section where you can ask other Likewise members to recommend their favorites based on what you’re looking for! I posted asking for a certain niche subgenre of romantic comedy and got several suggestions from the community within a day!
I definitely recommend Likewise to those looking to find their new favorite books.
Great so far… one suggestion 4/5
By Ghost hunter?
This app is very cool!! Useful and fun to use, just what I’ve been looking for. I think it would be cool to add musicals/plays as an option because there are so many out there that I want to learn about/talk about/recommend. Other than that it’s great!!
i really do love the app!! whenever i get a new book, i usually go to the bookstore and just read the back summaries for what seems like ages until i find something i like and sometimes leave empty handed, but this app lets me find books i may like without having to do all that :) its given great recommendations, from lesser-known authors to other popular ones
By trap queen cutie pie princess
This app has helped me find so many things to watch and listen to!
I wish that there were 3 options instead of 2 (save it and seen it) I think there should be one that says I don’t like or decline. Otherwise everything is good and I like my recs.
The issue seems to have been fixed and now I can use the entire app! It’s very enjoyable. User friendly
things like being able to weed out categories that we are NOT interested in are a lost star but the app is fun and I’ve already gotten some great recs! Thanks to the customer service team for their willingness to help out!
Old Review: What I’ve been able to use of the app has been truly wonderful but I can’t access any of the lists and sometimes book recommendations. I click on them and just get a blank screen that never loads. I’ve checked my connection, I’ve made sure the app was updated, and I’ve restarted my phone. Same issue every time. I can’t even use the app as it was meant to be used because of this and it’s very disappointing. I’ll keep trying. If the issue gets fixed I’ll update my review.
LikeWise helps me find more 5/5
I read far too many books and have a reading spread that is frankly ridiculous. I read Dune in a week with a full time job. I know. Insane. BUT likewise helps me find books and movies and podcasts that match my tastes. I really can’t recommend this app enough. If you like to consume any of these media forms, you should get this app.
Generally like it 4/5
By Gabriel B's mom
This is generally a good app. It is a fun way to discover shows, movies, podcasts, etc. It’s also a nice feature to ask other users for specific recommendations. I do wish there was a way to say you don’t like a specific show or movie, as that says as much about your tastes as what you do like. I also wish they separated movies and TV series, as those are quite different experiences to me. I am mostly pleased with the app, but it could use some fine-tuning.
Best app to find media 5/5
By Orion Blake
Simply an absolute go-to when it comes to movies or shows. I have had such great success using this app. Their filter search where you can search by several filters including genre and streaming platform is the best Ive encountered. Amazing!
I really like this app but… 1/5
For the past week and a half I keep getting a message from Norton telling me not to use the app every time I try to login. What is going on?
It worked ok then started freezing up. Also, let me pick genres I want to read and also ones I don’t like AT ALL.
Could be great but…. 2/5
This needs a lot of work. In addition to all the comments about UI, too few recs, not being able to turn off tv or podcast sections etc etc, I would specifically like to be able to hide whole genres (I will NEVER want a YA book, so it’s a total waste of my time to weed through questions or discussions about YA). I went to the genre groups and selected “turn off group notifications” but that seems to have done absolutely nothing. I also tried blocking individuals to see if their discussions would stop showing up but that did nothing either, i still see all their posts.
There also needs to be a better (or any??) way to find people to follow. For example, the app could suggest people to you who have liked a lot of the same things you have. I actually can’t figure how to find anyone to follow. There is just a giant list of all the users with zero info about what they like. Not helpful.
Needs another update 1/5
By Ace ahshdjfnejxnd djs dns
I like this app at first but it’s annoying that you can’t delete an ask list or some recommendations. Especially when some people ignore what you’re asking for and just keep pushing their taste on you. For example; you can state, a film with no blood and there’ll be someone who just slams the list with a bunch of movies that involve shooting and killings. It’s annoying. Really turned me off to the app.
keeps crashing 2/5
i love the app and how helpful it is to get new recommendations but IT KEEPS CRASHING ITS SO ANNOYING. i click on a comment and boom the whole app just crashes and i have to leave and start all over again. this happens at least 10 times a day. im over it.
Confusing app 3/5
This app is not the easiest to use. It’s ok but there are better solutions out there. I’m getting rid of it.
Anyone who cares about privacy beware!!! 1/5
I went to call a friend recently and noticed a new option in the call options: Likewise. Somehow, and for reasons that are completely unclear, this app was interacting with my phone app in a way that is completely unacceptable. Additionally, I was startled to see that this app had access to my microphone and some other personal component of my phone! Rage rage rage! Why is this acceptable?!!!
Love It! 5/5
I love how easy it is to make watch lists and I’ve gotten fantastic book and movie recommendations!
App seems more focused on advertising streaming services than finding new books/movies etc 2/5
I was excited to find this app hoping that it would introduce me to new books and authors. In reality you only get five suggestions a day all of which are extremely well known. I don’t need an app to suggest I read Pride and Prejudice. The movies are all super current and it feels like they got paid to suggest them. The podcasts don’t have enough reviews to provide any information. The book discussion is the only somewhat useful part but the same books are recommended over and over.
Great advice 5/5
This app is the best! I am always at a loss on what to read, listen to or watch after I fall in love with a good show/book/podcast. This app helps me choose what’s next! You won’t regret this download!
By Izzy pooh
This app has gotten me to so many books that I have read and loved. Will absolutely recommend to others!
Make no mistakes 1/5
Please, add the ability for a user to delete their own ask, discussion topic, and recommendations! This is like basic UX functionality.
i really love this app for book recommendations, i have no following but still get a bunch of recommendations from many different people, so useful for finding books and movies and shows
I love Likewise! I check it every day for personalized recommendations. I also really enjoy using it to create lists of my favorite shows, movies, and books, and my watchlist for what I want to watch next. There's an apple tv app that's fantastic and is being redesigned right now for even more usability — I can't wait!
Great recommendation app! 5/5
I love this app; I love being able to find new movies or books. Really wish it had recommendations for music artists, too.
Give me more recommendations 2/5
I’ve been using this for over a month and when I first started I was getting like 8 things for books but now I’m only getting two book suggestions and one discussion thing. This isn’t what I was looking for. I want mor recommendations from this app cause it’s what it’s for.
Great app but… 4/5
Super fun app, great way to meet people with the same interests as you, and you also get really interesting/fun recs!! Only thing I would say that would make it THAT much better is adding a feature where you can sort your saved by steaming service for the movies/tv shows (for example “Sort by Available on Netflix”). It’s be really helpful I think. And I know everything is already tagged by what it’s on but it’s be really nifty if there was a feature that would let us sort them.
Other than that, really great app, thanks so much!! 🤠
I love this app!!! 5/5
This app is amazing , it lets you pick book recs you didn’t know were there. Movies you forgot about or never seen.
Good app. Not iPad compatible 3/5
I love this app. I wish it was more compatible with my iPad. The screen does not stretch to the edge of my screen. It looks like the size of the phone screen on an iPad. Other than that, the app is great for saving things you like and making lists of things you want to read/watch. It helps me keep an organized list of things to read. It also gives pretty good suggestions.
Very helpful 5/5
Takes a slight bit of effort at first just rating movies/shows so that it can get an idea of your taste. Helps keep track of all the shows/movies I want to see in one place. Reminds me when something I want to watch becomes available. Has helped me find new things that I really enjoy. Very useful app.
Love it 5/5
Really helps with finding shows and movies I'd like based on other things I loved.
Great app! 5/5
I love how I can discover new shows, movies, and books while finding other fans of my favorites!
Great app 5/5
No nonfiction section besides classical and memoir. Wow. What about science, philosophy, political science, psychology, and history???
Little difficult to navigate but still would download 4/5
This app has given me amazing recommendations and over all good stuff though it took me a little while to know how to work it and switch between different things I think they could had made it a little easier to navigate but I think it is still a great app
LikeWise Review 5/5
Great app 5/5
By Belle Nelson
I absolutely love this app. It’s a great way to share what books, movies, tv shows, and podcasts you like. As well as ask for recommendations from others. I have found so many good books from using this. if you’re ever stuck on something to read, watch, or listen to 100% would recommend this to see others recommendations.
Community Recs make this worth it 4/5
It’s true. The daily suggestions aren’t stellar. And the options you have to pick from to help “improve the daily recommendations” aren’t great either.
I’m here for the community part! Being able to ask for recommendations and make suggestions to others is borderline addicting. I’ll often watch a movie and think it was really good and want to find more like it. A Google search for “movies like ______” yield sketchy results. Either an algorithm or a single author creates the list. But with LikeWise you have all these other people who love tv/movies/books as much as you. So the suggestions are diverse yet spot-on. It’s fun to scroll through the oddly specific suggestion lists and find things I never would’ve thought to watch or read (depending on if you’re here for the tv/movies or book recs). There’s a podcast section too if that’s your thing.
Super easy to use! 5/5
I am loving this app. It is so easy to use and has had great recommendations. I can’t wait to continue.
