Decide what movie to watch with your partner tonight and keep an eye out for drugstore offers.

These are the apps of the week.


If you are just sitting on the couch with your partner to watch something, you are then scrolling through the lists of streaming services for half an hour to find that one movie you both want to see.

An app maker had the same problem, so he decided to do something about it.

The result is WeWatch, Tinder for movies.

The idea is that you get films that you swipe left (don't watch) or right (watch) one by one.

Then in the app you become friends with your partner who does the same on their own smartphone and you can see exactly which movies you both want to see.

It is also possible to form a whole group, for example if you want to watch movies with a group of friends or your family.

WeWatch also lets you set filters, so that you only get movies that can be seen via your favorite streaming services.

This does not work very well in the Netherlands, because we cannot use the same services here as in the United States and these services have different offerings in different countries.

You can, however, easily filter out genres.

You can now earn money with your tweets by turning on Tip Jar on your profile.

That sounds easier than it is, because you have to create quality content and have fans.

The tip jar is connected to a payment service.

Specifically, these are Bandcamp, Cash App, Patreon, PayPal and Venmo.

Fans who want to tip, choose a payment service and determine the amount themselves.

Twitter does not pocket any of that.

There are still some snags to the system.

If a user chooses to tip via PayPal, the recipient will also see their full address.

Also, tips via PayPal can potentially be misused by reclaiming them.

The recipient must then pay 20 dollars (16 euros).

Anyone using Twitter in English can tip in the Twitter app on iOS or Android.

A limited number of users can now set up their own Tip Jar, including journalists and non-profit organizations.

Don't feel like checking every folder to see if your favorite deodorant is on sale?

Then the new Promo app might be something for you.

In the app you add your favorite products and you will receive a notification as soon as the product is on sale.

Two years ago, app maker Jasper Kuperus made special software for himself to keep an eye on whether his favorite drugstore products were on sale.

Kuperus heard from friends that they were also interested in this and that is how the app was created.

Unfortunately, the app currently only supports five stores: Albert Heijn, Etos, Kruidvat, Trekpleister and DA.

Kuperus proposes to cover the largest share with the focus on drugstores.

The app is free to use, but the options are limited.

You can then add three products to keep an eye on.

For 1 euro per month or 10 euro per year you can add unlimited products.
