Filmplix by Myjobs.TV is a comprehensive network and educational app created for the iOS operating system. It features tons of tools for the budding film industry enthusiast that can help you expand your profile and connect you with industry insiders. It’s a pretty unique app that shouldn’t be overlooked by anyone interested in film, it’s just too bad it isn’t a little bit more user friendly. The developers of this app seem to be more interested in providing content than ease of use. Filmplix is a free app and it’s compatible with the iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch.
Sometimes apps come along that provide a unique service that no one’s thought of before, and Filmplix is one of those apps. There simply aren’t any competitors for this app. If you search the app store for film industry networking apps you’re unlikely to find anything, so Filmplix definitely has that going for it. It’s just too bad they couldn’t have come up with a better interface – this app just isn’t very user friendly.
The app is organized into several different sections, but there’s no initial explanation of how things work. What’s worse you can’t even use it unless you’ve signed up for an account first – all you see when you open the app is a login screen with no explanation of how to get started. Eventually I visited their web page and discovered you had to sign up there and then you could go back and login to the app. It was all a bit confusing. It would also be good if the app ran a step by step introduction the first time you opened it. There is a help section buried within your profile, but it’s not in an obvious place. On the positive side there really is a lot of great content here to utilize, and you don’t have to contend with any ads or in-app purchases. The Filmplix app will require 3.9 MB of available space on your iOS device.
How it Works
Once you’ve logged on to Filmplix you’ll see a dashboard with different tools that you can scroll through by swiping up on the screen. You can also navigate directly to a specific section by tapping on the menu in the top left corner and making your selection. The app includes a catalog of projects that others are promoting and you can add your own projects to the list as well.
The other great features of this app are its business center and business analytics section. You can use these to track how well your own projects are doing. The best thing to do is to take a look at other user’s projects before you add any though, that way you can see what works and what doesn’t. Each project will have an app rating that shows you what others think about it. As mentioned above there’s a lot of good content here.
You can’t use the app until you visit the website and sign up – this isn’t explained
Filmplix is a unique app without any real competition. If you want to increase your presence in the film industry, this is a must have app. It’s just too bad they couldn’t have made it a little more user friendly. There’s definitely room for improvement here.
