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.

Fail with the timekeeping on iPhone 5/iOS 6.0.1
Always have an issue in updating the show time. Quite obvious is the app inability to adjust the originating timezone to the local time. For example, I have two/three US TV programs listed as showing yesterday Monday that aired between 8-10 PM ET but only one correctly adjusted to GMT (+5 hrs) with the rest showing on US ET even though the app setting is set to adjust.
As a result, pop up error message always come up whenever I refresh/launch the app. Have no problem on the same show on my iPhone 4S/iOS 5.1.1
I have had this app since the first iPhone and since using it on my 5S it's less than useless...doesn't update every programme every time so one minute there's tv airing and the next they're all "tba"!
Poor poor show for what was once the go to app! If you're looking for alternatives the App Store has a few but I've taken to using iTV Shows 2 since it syncs watched lists across iCloud devices. TV Forecast, this is your final curtain call.
Needs a bit of a UI update, very iOS6 at the moment.
