GetGlue, where are you?
With the old GetGlue, there was no checking in to individual episodes, but all posts for each series and movie were accessible and browsable immediately, which made for fun reading about my favorite shows.
With the new tvtag, this is gone, leaving the app feeling empty and hollow. You have to check in to a specific episode—but if tvtag doesn't have it listed (as is the case with the first few seasons of Seinfeld, for instance), you are out of luck unless you want to check into an incorrect episode. But when no one can see what anyone else is writing about shows, why bother anyway?
I'm sticking with tvtag long enough to see whether they switch back to the old way of doing things, but I have a sinking feeling it's a lost cause.
Thank you for honoring the GetGlue legacy while also moving forward with an amazing new vision for connecting with other TV audience members. I can’t wait to open my phone tonight while I watch my favorite shows and the Super Bowl on Sunday will be epic with tvtag. I love the TV moments that come on screen and the fact that I can so easily share these moments to Twitter and Facebook. Way to go GetGlue/i.TV. This is gonna be great!!!
Can't check in
Not much point in having episodes on the app when we pretty much only get an error message: Oops. Sorry, something went wrong. And not having the feed on the app so I can't follow what my friends or what others are saying about the show I'm watching. This app is pretty much useless.
Also, in the few instances when you CAN check in to an episode, it screws up your check-in count for the show because it counts the episode as a separate show. AND the app takes too long to load. Horrible all around.
