What is the history and popularity of the app?

iCheckMovies was created by three people named Erik Schierboom, Piet van Dongen and Marijn Giesen. It was inspired by one of the founders' desire to watch all 250 movies that sit at the top of IMDb. After some time, it became difficult for them to track what films they have seen, thus iCheckMovies was born in 2008. The site is based out of the Netherlands.

What are the differences to other apps?

On iCheckMovies, users basically can create a profile, watch a lot of movies and then brag about their film escapades. The ability to create an avatar is also unique to this community. The entire communtiy centers around films and TV shows that people have watched, intend to watch or that they consider all-time greats.
