"The UI is slick, everything is broken down into nice little categories that show me exactly what I want to see, and I was able to just jump right in and start using it. Couldn't ask for anything more." - iPhoneAppReviews.net
What's New in Version 3.4.2
This update fixes bugs and adds one little feature that was heavily demanded:
- fixed a bug where the app would sometimes crash when marking watched the last item in the Episodes tab
- fixed an issue where search hints would sometimes be hidden under the keyboard, hence making those shows harder to find
- added an option to switch the airing hour to AM/PM time format
Worth the upgrade to Pro!
I got this app before it went free, and was rewarded by being offered the pro version for 1/2 the price. For the negative reviews confused by this, the app wasn't free to us early adopters.
The ability to keep track of the shows you watch, when they air, what episode is next (hence the name), is absolutely indispensable in this day of uncertainty of TV. This app has helped keep me from missing shows when they've switched networks, or if a special is airing that otherwise I would have missed.
I originally spent $2.99 on this app 4 years ago, and gladly gave the developer another $1.99 to support all of the updates they've provided. Mostly because I'm hoping that this will lead to the development of a universal app, so I can finally view it on my iPad mini!
Best of the Best :-)
I’ve spent a small fortune on TV show tracking apps trying to find one that’s ‘just-right’. For me, Next Episode is it. Great developer support, comprehensive feature-set, and regular updates. The only item I’d like to see added at this point is the addition of air-times to the ‘Episodes’ screen, as I tend to use this one as my daily summary as opposed to the ‘What’s Next’ screen.
Of the many TV tracking apps I’ve tried, Next Episode is the only one that sends push-notifications if a series in your list is cancelled as well as a series start-date.
Perfect for recording
I selected this app from among the many available when this app came out and it continues to deliver and improve. Each week I use it to setup the shows I will record for that week, ensuring the VCR is getting what I intend even for the repeating shows. This app is reliable and accurate, with only a couple of hiccups during the nearly 3 years I have used it.
Update: the app only keeps getting better with each new version. I always keep this app on my home page.
