Foursquare, a location-based application that rewards points and badges to users, is one of the fastest growing iPhone apps on the market. Now, another company is taking the framework of that technology and blending in films.
Miso focuses on the films you’re watching on your iPhone/iPod/iPad, awarding avid users who check in and share their favorite shows badges tied to genres and sub-genres of film and television. (See the trailer for it below)
The program’s still in alpha – meaning it’s very early in the development process. Developers have integrated the app with foursquare, though, so you can now share where you’re watching as well as what. And, as you might expect, you can easily announce your viewing habits to friends via Twitter and Facebook.
It’s an interesting social tool – and one that major studios are likely keeping their eye on.
