APC Australia - - Software - Harry Do­man­ski

The name may be a tad Or­wellian, and while some of those con­no­ta­tions sur­vive in the app’s func­tion­al­ity, the end-prod­uct is more harm­less than that. Nev­er­think’s aim is one of con­ve­nience — to be “the TV of the in­ter­net” — and the ti­tle ref­er­ences the fact that the videos on the app are cu­rated for you, re­mov­ing the need to think about what to watch. You just have to choose from one of the app’s cat­e­gories — world news, memes, doc­u­men­taries or LOL — and your stream of videos is ready. Nev­er­think streams videos from YouTube, so you’ll be fa­mil­iar with the in­ter­face. This ser­vice is proudly al­go­rithm-free, how­ever. In­stead, the team at Nev­er­think hand-pick videos ev­ery day, se­lect­ing what they deem ap­pro­pri­ate for each chan­nel. If you’re in the habit of get­ting caught in YouTube­holes, then this app will cer­tainly ex­ac­er­bate it (for bet­ter or for worse).
