Hidden Gems in the Kaleidescape iPad App
The Kaleidescape iPad App offers a long list of features, including searching by director or cast, Common Sense Media and Rotten Tomatoes ratings and an integrated controller, to name a few. Below are some “hidden gems” in the app that you should definitely take advantage of.
Turn movie night into a party with Kaleidescape Scenes. Start playing a scene and queue up the next one to become a scene DJ for your friends and family. Simply navigate to “Collections” where you will find a list of all the movies you own with scenes.
Last week after posting about “Hidden Gems” in the Kaleidescape iPad App, we got a lot of feedback about the mention of queuing scenes. Let me clarify how I use the app to create a seamless show of scenes for my friends.
When a scene is playing, as my friends enjoy it, I browse for the next one to show, and then I hit “play” as soon as the previous scene ends. As simple as it seems, this technique (which I consider a “hidden gem”) blows people away. As my friends watch and enjoy a scene, I anticipate what they might want to see next. I listen as they make comments and then surprise them by immediately playing a scene someone mentioned. This real-time way of entertaining my guests is like being a scenes DJ.
Try this next time your friends are over, and I guarantee you will impress them!
Isolated Covers View
In the app, when you have preselected a genre, director, actor, rating or collection, you can then enter the Covers View and see an isolated visual array of your selection. Shake the iPad or select a cover and see more recommendations for you in your unique category. This was first considered a bug, but was found so useful that we decided to push it to production.
