RecGenie is an easy and fun way to discover new music, TV shows, movies, books, and games. You can get recommendations for yourself or for groups by choosing a facebook friend. Recommendations are perfectly tailored to your individual taste using our advanced Artificial Intelligence algorithms that work behind the scenes.
