Hooked is a game recommendation app that recommends the best android games for you, both free and paid, based on your gaming preferences, providing a much better way of finding the best games on the Android Market than the Market itself! Quite ironic, you might say. Well, that’s exactly what Hooked does. It learns your usage pattern and other statistics such as playing time, and recommends games accordingly. It can also login to your Facebook or Google account so it can recommend games that your friends are playing, so you can join in on the fun.
Here’s a list of the key features of the app:
- Personalized game recommendations
- Personal Dashboard: Track all your game play statistics
- Access all your installed games
- How many games you have played,
- How much time you have played each game
- Your likes and dislikes
- Create your own game Queue: Save games in your account to install and play later
- Community Discovery: Find out what others are playing, what games they like and don’t like
- Connect with your friends to see what they are playing!
The first time you run Hooked, it detects and loads a list of the games currently installed on your phone, asks you to rate them, then recommends similar games for you in the ‘Recommended’ section. It makes decisions based on various other things, such as the amount of time you spend playing a particular game, the total time spent playing a game, and the number of times you play a game.
The ‘Discover’ section shows you the games currently being played by players around the world, and also shows you the games currently being recommended by other players. Clicking on a particular game’s icon, Hooked shows you information such as the game description, games similar to the selected title, and also a list of people currently playing that game. You can install games right from the app, and also launch installed games.
You can also search for games, both free and paid, and sort them by different criteria such as their rating or relevance; you can also search for games in particular categories such as arcade, cards, racing, sports, puzzle, etc. The ‘My Games’ section is where you can see the installed games on your phone, along with statistics such as the amount of time playing a particular game.
