Other bug fixes and improvements
Nice app but no syncing and bug found
I purchased this app mainly because of the acquired function but when I choose acquired in the filter all shows but those that have acquired checked show up. Also I made the mistake of assuming the iPhone and iPad apps would sync but they don't. I have emailed the developer with questions about these issues but no response yet. Basically this is a good app but it could use some fine tuning.
Would like to see an option in the filter to only include shows from one of the lists (favorites, bucket, etc). Also Masterpiece Mystery doesn't include any episodes and gives an error message.
