TV Forecast ~ Your Personal TV Guide
By Big Bucket Software
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
You know what you want to watch, you just need to know when you can watch it. A conventional TV guide can tell you what's on TV right now. TV Forecast will tell you when your favorite TV shows will be on. With TV Forecast, you'll never miss a new episode.
New for iOS 5: Your forecast in the cloud! With iCloud, your forecast is wirelessly pushed to all of your devices. Also integrates with TV Forecast HD.

If only I could add tv shows that have ended
It's a great app. Love the fact that it supports iCloud sync. The only thing keeping me from giving it a 5 star rating is the fact that it does not allow you to add TV shows that have already ended. I realize this app's name is TV FORECAST, but it would be awesome to be able to add shows that have ended so I could make myself a database of all the shows I watched, which would come in very handy if I want to watch them again at some later time.
Love the app! Just not always up-to-date :-(
I noticed that it misses some shows in particular. For the most part, it's all Cartoon Network shows like Regular Show, Adventure Time, The Looney Tunes Show...The Amazing World of Gumball is the worst one at the moment. There's already been a new episodes on, and it hasn't been updated yet. I truly love the app and everything it does. I just wish the episode info was more on-par with TVGuide or MyTVDB.
Good execution, great UI, a little unreliable
A few times the app has failed to notify me of an upcoming show, sometimes it takes forever to update when launched, and once in a while it lags behind on schedule updates (I knew when "Doctor Who" was resuming several weeks before the app did). But I still prefer this app over anything similar I've tried (and there were quite a few I tried).
