How does the web app look and feel to use?

Criticker is very easy to use and you don’t even need to register to start having some fun. You just need to visit the homepage and then you can start ranking various films. It’s very easy to use as you can fill out the whole form and submit it once or submit each ranking individually. This site isn’t just a normal film ranking site. This site can suggest films that you might like to watch based on your own rankings. If you register for an account then you will be able to save your rankings and also participate in the community.

How does the registration process work?

Registering for an account on Criticker is very easy and shouldn’t take longer than a couple of minutes. All of these accounts are completely free and you will need to start by filling out a registration form. Start by entering a screen name and then checking that it’s available. Simply write in the name and then click the ‘test’ link. You can then complete each stage one by one. Every time you will have to click the ‘test’ link which is frustrating. Whoever thought of this idea needs their head looking at. It would be much easier if the fields were checked ‘on the fly’ as you typed the information. Once you have finally gotten to the end of the form and completed it you will automatically be signed in. All of the films that you have already ranked as a guest will be added onto your profile.

What does it cost to use the application?

The site is free to use for everyone. It is fully supported by adverts which take the form of banner adverts at the bottom of pages. These aren’t a major problem and don’t get in the way.

Who would you recommend the application to?

Criticker is aimed specifically at film lovers and people who really like watching films in their spare time. The site is reliable and functional. It might not be the prettiest site on the net however it is still extremely useful. It’s more than just a film review site because there is an amazing online community.
