Luma – Watch Movies & TV by Luma, LLC (Free, 18.1 MB): This intelligent movie and TV show recommendation app brings all of your online sources together for an easy way to find things you’ll actually be entertained by.

As expected, tapping on a poster will reveal a description and up to three ratings based on groups. In addition, you can select the source, which will launch the appropriate app, share the item with Luma using friends, or add it to your watchlist. The app supports HBO Go, Netflix, Hulu Plus, Crackle, iTunes, ABC, and more. Registration of a free account is required.
