Probably My Most Frequently Used App
I don’t write reviews that often, but this app is really really great. I only have the free the version. I don’t really see that much more value in the paid upgrade. However, that being said, I can’t rave enough about how great this app is. It’s simple to use. It gives you all the info you need without any extra clutter. It’s not missing TV shows. If you watch a lot of TV like I do then you know it’s hard to keep up with when shows are premiering, when shows are ending, what shows are still active and what has been cancelled. This app tracks all the shows you tell it to track and it tells you which episodes you’ve seen, which ones you have left to see, and gives you synopsis summaries of each episode. It’s really great for Netflix shows too because it helps you keep track of what you have watched and what you haven’t. I use it every single day.
Simple, Easy & Fast TV Show Tracker
If you need something simple, fast and an easy way to track your TV shows, this is the app for you.
I've really enjoyed using next episode (I also have the Pro upgrade). I track a lot of shows. And other apps seem to bog down and take forever to update (like iTV Shows). Next episode doesn't. It doesn't have fancy graphics or screenshots, it's simple & effective. It can load a description when you tap on episode. Swiping to watch episodes or a season makes it easy to mark episodes you've caught up on.
If you have multiple devices, fear not, you can create an account to sync between devices. That is also fast.
The added Pro option is nice to help you discover shows you may like. Like seeing what other shows the TV show creators made. The widget is also really nice which allows you to see quickly what on today, next & yesterday (really like the yesterday, no other app does that).
My only issue I've encountered, is one the iPhone 6 Plus, the TV show art is blurry. Not really an issue, just an observation.
I'd like to see the "what hot" and other "more" options moved onto other screens, like in the calendar view.
Also a horizontal view &/or an iPad version would be really nice to have.
$4 for this app is a steal. Seriously.
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!
