Trakter UWP keeps track of all your live TV shows, via

Published by at

First available for Windows Phone 8.1 and then rebuilt for Windows 10 as a UWP application some time ago, Trakter has been recently updated and I thought it worth highlighting here. Essentially, it keeps track of what's on TV and where and then reminds you as needed. For telly addicts everywhere?

From the Store description:

Trakter app enables you to track your favorite TV shows, your progress of watched episodes and much more. You can also make a watchlist for movies, you want to watch. App uses service, where it gets all related data for TV shows and movies.

Why is Trakter different from other similar apps?

  • No local database. Everything is stored on trakt. Which means everything is the same on every device. No manual exports or imports. No manual backups. Shows and movies are in one app. 
  • Universal App. You can use the same app on Windows and Windows Phone.

Some of the new features added in recent versions:

  • Added images for movies, shows and episodes
  • Ability to sort my shows by show status and last watched
  • Syncing progress reporting
  • Ability to filter out watched movies in my movies view
  • Various context menus for shows and movies

And Trakter's main features:

  • Integration with
  • Browse TV shows and movies by popular, trending and recommended
  • Search for TV shows, movies and people
  • Detailed TV show, movie and actor information
  • My Shows list and My Movies list

Browsing TV shows and exploring the hamburger-driven interface - it's not entirely standard Windows 10, but it's polished.

Delving into a show's episodes, keep track of what you have and haven't watched, and so on; (right) there's a wealth of extra stuff for every TV show, including images (here) and reviews.

The UWP nature is fully-fleshed out too, here showing via  Continuum display from a Lumia 950, but also working in the same way on tablet and on laptop, Xbox, etc.

There are some in app purchases, mainly one for £1.50 which unlocks the premium features: marking multiple episodes as 'watched', background syncing, and the all-important 'notifications'. In fact, you can get this for half price if you're already a VIP/supporter.

You can download Trakter UWP here in the Store.
