Never lose track of your favourite programme with TVShow

Published by at

Keeping track of your favourite TV show should be something that your smartphone can help with - luckily it can with TVShow. Developed by Rudy Huyn, the app lets you select yoru favourite shows, gives you a constantly updated episode list to keep track of the episodes youhave watched, upcoming US broadcasts, and industry news from a number of websites.

There's a lot going on in this application, which makes use of all the Windows Phone UI tricks, including toast notifications, push messaging, and live tile links for each of your favourite shows.

From the directory listing:

  • Get a quick overview of the all the upcoming episodes for all of your favorite shows
  • Get synopsis, screen captures, rates, subtitles and recaps for each episodes
  • in app youtube player
  • Mark seen and unseen episodes
  • be notified right before a new episode of your favorite TV Shows aired even if the app is not launched.
  • Share comments with friends on facebook/twitter and with other users
  • offline mode
  • rate episodes
  • Use your phone as a remote screen for subtitles
  • read news from allociné, maxiseries,, tvguide, tvspoiler et buddy tv
  • translation feature for recaps and summaries
  • for U.S. residents only: adjust air date/times of U.S. tv shows to your local time zone
  • 3 choices of live tiles
  • support for comments and episode rates

The news feeds in the application can be configured to use a number of website feeds, including and Spoiler TV. Again these have a very heavy US focus, and it would be nice to have the option of some more international sites (Den of Geek springs to mind) or the ability to add your own.

I'm impressed with the dataset of TV shows, and while I am sure there are gaps, it does pick up Star Cops, Moonbase 3, and (unfortunately) Crime Traveller.

Of course catching all that data means there are going to be oddities - such as the ability to mark Doctor Who's "Power of the Daleks part 2" as 'watched' (That should be setting off alarm bells due to being a missing episode). And while the alerts and information on upcoming episodes is purely focused on America, that could prove to be very useful to dedicated fans of shows like The Big Bang Theory who are... shall we say, heavily connected to the internet.

You can download the trial version of TVShow from the Windows Store, or via the AAWP App Directory.
