The name may be a little Orwellian, and while some of those connotations survive in the app’s functionality, the end-product is a little more harmless than that. Neverthink’s aim is one of convenience — to be “the TV of the internet” — and the title is referencing the fact that the videos on the app are curated for you, removing the need to think about what to watch. In fact, all you’ll have to do is choose from one of the app’s categories, whether it’s world news, memes, documentaries or LOL (yeah...), and your stream of videos is ready.
Neverthink streams embedded videos from YouTube, so once the video is playing, you’ll be familiar with the interface. We mentioned curation before, but this service is proudly algorithm-free. Instead, the diverse team at Neverthink hand-pick videos every day, selecting what they deem appropriate for each of the channels.
If you’re in the habit of getting caught in YouTube-holes, then this app will certainly exacerbate it (for better or for worse), and although the app functions as intended, there is something rather irksome about taking mindless entertainment literally.
