What you need to know

  • Filmlog tracks all the movies you've seen as well as the ones you want to.

There are more streaming services now than ever before and keeping track of the movies you want to watch, not to mention the ones you've already seen, can be a full-time job in itself. Filmlog hopes to make it easier and, dare I say, fun.

Created to be a movie diary, Filmlog displays movies in the form of gorgeous poster art which means your iPhone will be a gorgeous collage of all the movies you've seen soon enough. Those movies with multiple poster options also mean you get to choose which one to use – something I spent more time doing than I'd care to admit.

Once you've added a movie to your list, you can share it via social networks like Instagram, too.
