An App for Movie Watchers

By Jason Harris

Reelgood launched its app yesterday. Reelgood is a service that aggregates content from over 250 streaming services. The Reelgood website came out of beta in July, according to a TechCrunch article.

Once I heard about this app, I downloaded it. I know it will come in handy. I’ve been wishing for an app like this. I’m always looking to see where movies are being shown. Just this week, I was looking to see if Congo was available through a streaming service. A podcast, How Did This Get Made?, watched and discussed this movie , which made me want to see it again. I searched for Congo in the app and found out it’s available on Showtime.

To use the Reelgood service, you can use your Facebook credentials or sign-up using your email. You can sign-up through the app, which you can check out here.

Gboard is a Great Keyboard

I started using Gboard a few weeks ago after hearing about this iOS keyboard on a podcast. I believe it was episode #131 of Connected.

I had heard about Gboard when it was first released back in February of 2016. I didn’t try it then. I didn’t care to. I looked down on it because of one of its features. The feature was glide typing. I thought this way of typing was useless. I was wrong. I absolutely love glide typing. It’s not perfect all the time, but overall it works for me.

Another thing that comes in handy with this keyboard is the ability to conduct searches. Someone mentions a song on Facebook and you can find the YouTube video of that song to share it on the person’s post.

The keyboard also has a dark theme. This is the one I use so I know what keyboard is installed in those incidences where I’m not using Gboard.

I love this keyboard. I would suggest everyone give Gboard a try. Here is a Cult of Mac article stating “10 things you should know about Google’s Gboard keyboard,” you

The keyboard was updated last month. You can read a Mac Stories article about it here.
