The traditional way of watching television is becoming a thing of the past. The arrival of the internet in every home and the existence of platforms like Netflix have led us to forget about watching classic television programming, in favor of more convenient and custom ways of watching what we want to watch. But that doesn’t mean that the influence of the so-called ‘idiot box’ has disappeared: Neverthink has borrowed the tradition of channel surfing to provide users with semi-random audiovisual content. It’s an app that gives you endless access to hand-picked YouTube videos.
It may be a bit extreme to compare an institution as legendary as classic television with the features provided in Neverthink. But that’s more a matter of the number of consumers over the qualities each audiovisual provider offers. Both the TV and the Finnish app Neverthink are based on the same premise: flipping through content is something we do constantly. That said, channel surfing on TV may be more based on the desire to avoid watching commercials, while in Neverthink, it’s more about boredom, and basically, pure and simple laziness.
There are over 40 different channels of content waiting for you on Neverthink. All full of YouTube videos that have been previously chosen by the members of the team in their quest to show only the best of the platform. Each channel offers a description that indicates the type of content you’re going to find on it, as well as the name of the person in charge of the interesting task.
The channels are as varied as it gets and the topics are pure Internet at its finest: you’ll find categories like Memes, Gameplay, Geeky, LOL, AWWW, etc., each one accompanied by an emoji that represents what you’ll find in each section. There are also some special categories that change daily and that give more of a custom feel to this big bag of audiovisual content.
We haven’t bothered to stop and explain how to use Neverthink because it’s not actually necessary. You literally just have to choose a category and a video will start playing. When the video is over, a new one will start. And so on, and so on. That said, if you get tired of a video and want to continue in the same category, you just have to tap on it again and you’ll have a new video waiting for you. It couldn’t be simpler.
We’re getting better at selecting the best content to watch, especially with the long list of streaming services we have available nowadays. But there are times when you simply want to have a good time without having to think too much about it. And that’s where Neverthink stands out as a quality alternative to traditional means. We already talked about this app as one of the best of the month of May and now we’re revisiting it to reassert our opinion. Basically, because it deserves it, thanks to the quality of its service. And best of all, it’s even compatible with Chromecast. What more could we ask for?
