Streamline Crowdsourced Recommendations By Only Listing Favorite Things
technology

Stamped app allows users to rate only the things they like best and to share these reviews exclusively with their friends.

The frustration of deciphering a 3 star restaurant review might just be coming to a close. New tech startup Stamped has developed an iPhone app that allows you to find and share only the best recommendations with your inner circle.

The startup, with four out of its seven team members coming straight from Google, has launched an app that focuses strictly on quality, not quantity. Backed by Google Ventures and Bain Capital, Stamped is using simplicity as its tool to compete with hundreds of other similar minded crowd-sourced apps. However, unlike other crowd sourced review sites, Stamped seeks to end the ambiguity of the 5 start review system by allowing users to stamp only their favorite places.

Here’s how it works: Once the app is installed, you receive 100 stamps. Use these sparingly to place your personal seal of approval on your favorite restaurants, businesses, books, movies, music, etc.. Your stamps are visible to your friends, found via your mail contacts, Twitter, or Facebook, and you can see what they’ve been stamping as well. If your friend gives a second stamp to a recommendation you’ve given, you receive 2 more stamps. You can also add stamps to a personal to-do list and search for items based on category or location. To further streamline your experience Stamped has teamed up with iTunes, Amazon, OpenTable, and Fandango, allowing you to indulge immediately in your friends’ recommendations.

Check out the video below for a visual walk-through:

You can download the app at Stamped.com.
