Rippple 101

What is Rippple?

Rippple is a Trakt client built on top of the public Trakt API.

Why another Trakt app? Because I love Trakt. Because I have strong opinions about the way some feature should work. And because I can and want to do it.

With Rippple, my goal is to build the best tool to track, share, discover and organize everything that’s linked to everyone’s movie and TV time on iPhone, iPad and Mac.

The project started in 2017. The first version came out in early 2018 with an iPhone-only app focussing mainly on Comments. Since then, it as been incrementally improved with many releases to be the full-fleshed app it is today.

It remains a passion project entirely built by just one person with the help of friends for design and backend stuff.

What is Trakt?

Trakt is a platform and community that helps you keep track of the TV shows and movies you watched. It can help you keep up with the trending and popular things to watch thanks to community driven lists, ratings and comments. You can link a media center to enable automatic scrobbling or manually check-in when you’re watching something.

Trakt provides a public API for third party apps (like Rippple) to interact with your data and the community.
