ubuntuA new scope for Unity's Dash is released. This scope allows you to search for movie reviews quickly through Dash. The scope is using the well known rottentomatoes.com to get the review data. To install it open a terminal and type:


sudo add-apt-repository ppa:scopes-packagers/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install unity-lens-utilities unity-scope-rottentomatoes

Log out and the log back in. Open Dash and type the name of a movie. If you click on a result it will direct you to the relevant web page in rottentomatoes.com

Rotten Tomatoes Unity Scope

Other useful lenses and scopes that I have written about in the past are Calculator ScopeYouTube LensPirateBay ScopeGrooveshark Scope and Wikipedia Lens.

I still don't think that all those scopes and lenses are useful. I prefer having a browser open and search anything I want from it. But again, maybe you find them useful...
