Review: New Movie and TV Show Tracking App Kernel Brings Social Features to the iOS App Store
A new movie and TV show tracking app called Kernel has been released on the App Store for iOS, iPadOS, and watchOS. Kernel allows users to curate movies to lists called playlists and share lists with friends. Users can also see what streaming services movies are playing on, and in the future, they will be able to launch streaming apps to play their desired content.
Kernel was created by Nikias Molina, a YouTuber who wanted to create an app that would make it easy for people to track the movies and TV shows they were interested in. Molina said that he was inspired to create Kernel after seeing how many people were using social media to share their thoughts on movies and TV shows.
"I wanted to create an app that would bring the social aspect of movie and TV show tracking to the App Store," Molina said. "Kernel makes it easy for people to share their lists with friends, and it also allows users to see what streaming services movies are playing on. This makes it easy for people to find and watch the movies and TV shows they're interested in."
Kernel is available for free on the App Store.
Here are some of the features of Kernel:
Create and share movie and TV show playlists
See what streaming services movies are playing on
Get notifications for upcoming movie and TV show releases
Follow your friends' lists and see what they recommend
After trying out Kernel for a few days and I have really enjoyed the clean design. There are a few quick interactions that could be add but Molina said they should be included in the next release. Also I use my Mac to look up what streaming services are playing certain movies so I’m also hoping that native Mac support, or even Catalyst support, is added soon. Finally data lasts longer than apps so I’m also interested in how to import and exports lists I’ve made on other apps to and from Kernel.
Kernel is a great way to track the movies and TV shows you're interested in. The app's social features make it easy to share your lists with friends and find new content to watch. If you're looking for a great way to stay up-to-date on the latest movies and TV shows, then Kernel is the app for you.
