The movies meet Foursquare

Foursquare, a location-based application that rewards points
and badges to users, is one of the fastest growing iPhone apps on the market.
Now, another company is taking the framework of that technology and blending in
films.

Miso focuses on the films you’re watching on your
iPhone/iPod/iPad, awarding avid users who check in and share
their favorite shows badges tied to genres and sub-genres of film and
television. (See the trailer for it below)

The program’s still in alpha – meaning it’s very early in
the development process. Developers have integrated the app with foursquare,
though, so you can now share where you’re watching as well as what. And, as you
might expect, you can easily announce your viewing habits to friends via
Twitter and Facebook.

It’s an interesting social tool – and one that major studios
are likely keeping their eye on.
