iShows TV - TV Show Tracker powered by Trakt.tv
By Luis Recuenco
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
iShows TV is the best way to manage, discover and keep track of your favorite TV shows. Now powered with Trakt so you can get all your up-to-date info synced in every device.
In order to manage your TV shows easily, we have built a gesture driven interface so you can mark as watched, as favorite or even archive your finished shows with simple, intuitive finger gestures.
You can sort your TV shows with three different sorting options: Next Episode, Last Episode and Alphabetically. Choose the one that suits your watching habits.
Since this is an app you're going to use every day, we don't want to bore you with the same interface, so you can customize the app by changing between two different layouts: Poster and Fanart. Hardcore users will love the condensed view option!
Once you have chosen the layout, you can customize the Poster and Fanart images with a simple swipe; browsing the images at full screen, and even save and share them.
You can also change the app's color scheme (Light and Dark) and choose from six different highlight colors.
Finally, you can use the tinted option to enhance the app’s UI. You can even make iShows automatically look different every day!
When you are in the mood for new TV shows, tap the add button to go to the Discovery area, where you can see our personal picks, trending and popular shows. If you're connected to Trakt.tv, you can also get recommendations based on your shows, as well as find out what TV shows your friends are watching.
We highly encourage you to create a Trakt.tv account; doing so will allow you to keep a backup of your watched history and also comment or rate your favorite TV shows. If you plan on using iShows both on your iPhone and your iPad, a Trakt.tv account is a must.
Last, but not least, we have made some beautiful themes to change the whole UI based on our most loved TV shows, like Game of Thrones, The Walking Dead and Breaking Bad. We also plan to develop new themes in the future ;)
PLEASE NOTE: This app is meant to keep track of your favorite TV shows. You CANNOT VIEW episodes within this app.
What's New in Version 2.7
Minor bug fixing.
Great Interface, but serious flaws
I've used this app for almost two years now, but I finally have to find something new.
First, the good: the interface is outstanding. Switching between currently watching shows and archived shows is great. I also love the countdown of remaining episodes for shows you're not caught up on, and the countdown to remaining days until the next episode of shows you are caught up on. I love the organization by remaining episodes, with the caught up episodes moving to the bottom of the list.
Now, the bad: It's been happening more frequently, but sometimes the poster art doesn't show up when opening the app. Often, half of the show art does appear, but the remaining are just a gray squares. This is annoying as I use the compact view and it does not show the name of the show. Additionally, it seems the interface to Trakt breaks often. The biggest reason I'm switching, though, is because of the amount of storage this app consumes. At one point, it was taking up to 1 GB of space on my phone. I noticed that customizing notifications and the poster art of the shows tended to inflate that space. This is a problem because notifications still pop-up for archived shows.
Overall, I was happy, but with these issues going unaddressed for so long, it's time for me to start looking elsewhere. It's a shame because this interface really is the best around.
Good TV tracker app
I actually really like this app so far, however it is lacking one thing, or at least I haven't found a way to do it, but there's no way to be able to mark an entire season of a show watched, except to do it one episode at a time! Please add this option! As you already know some shows have 10+ seasons and to have to mark each individual episode one by one is just ludicrous. Hope I see this feature added soon. It's really the only thing keeping it from being a 5 star TV tracker. Could use some more themes also.
Great App but now haviong a problem
Overall this is a wonderfaul but just a few days ago I have run into a problem. For the last few days, the TV episodes that I have watched do not remain as watched in the iShows TV app. For example, I just watched the last 3 episodes of Santa Clarita Diet and I have marked them watched. I then close the app and the next time I open the app it does not "remember" these episodes as being watched. It is not just this TV show but multiple TV shows. Is this possibly a bug in the new update? Keep up the great work! Thanks!
