Indecisive procrastinators rejoice: Our productivity just got a little higher with the help of a new app that narrows down what we want to watch on Netflix so we don’t have to spend hours hopelessly scrolling only to find ourselves giving up in a flash of anger, throwing the remote at the TV, and curling up in a ball before rocking ourselves to a dreamless sleep. Dinggo makes finding something to watch as easy as a Tinder swipe.

Designed to weed through the swamps of your favorite streaming service (including Hulu, and Amazon Prime) the app presents you with a single flashcard at a time. If the cover and title look good to you, swipe right. After a round of swiping, the app has already narrowed down your options to the content that matches you best. Now that your entertainment for the evening is sorted, you can get on with life’s other difficult decisions. Starting with these nine:
What to eat for dinner.
Chinese? Or Mediterranean? If we get Chinese, would we want the dumplings to start or the hot and sour soup? Maybe the wontons would be better? So hangry.
There is a very fit angel standing on one shoulder, and a pudgy little devil on the other. Both are making good points.
Taking a shower before leaving the house.
Will anyone notice if we wear the same clothes as yesterday? Does anyone even care if we comb our hair? What is even the point of hygiene?
Which pants to wear.
Jesus, not again. Another day, another pair of pants. But which one? We hate them all.
What to do with the rest of our life.
We thought we wanted to be a professional dog walker, but now we don't know. We just don't know.
Who to date on Tinder.
So many options, so little time. The old thumb is starting to cramp. Can't. Stop. Swiping.
To road rage or not to road rage.
Some jerk cut you off. Was it malicious or just plain careless? Should you speed up and follow the guy home and cover his car in cement or continue on your way to Target to get toothpaste and trash bags? Decisions, decisions.
What to get your family for Christmas.
You said you would start gathering gifts early this year, but how can one gather gifts when the gift list isn't finalized? What the hell could possibly top last year with Dad's tie rack and Mom's cat calendar? Ugh, nightmare.
Go to sleep or double down on Dinggo.
This could go on indefinitely.
