Review: TVShows – Free TV Series Calendar Watch Tracker for iPhone

Rating: ★★★★☆

Keeping a track of different timings of all your favoruite TV shows isn’t an easy task. Setting a reminder on your phone could be a solution, but certainly not an intutive one.

TVShows – Free TV Series Calendar Watch Tracker for iPhone developed by PersApps promises to solve the problem of keeping a track of all the TV shows you love and even reminding you when the next episode is on air. The app is very simple to use and easy to set up.

You begin by adding shows to your wishlist and then the app takes care of the rest. Adding shows to the wishlist can be done either by searching for the show by its name or by browsing the top shows that are further categoried by “On Air” and “Today”. The app currently has a database of 880,000 episodes from 31,000 different series.

Tapping on the title of a particular show reveals timing information, episode guide, series details, featured videos, cast and crew and even suggests similar shows you might be interested in. Detailed information about the shows and season guide is a great addition as one can learn more about thier favoruite TV show and even learn about new shows. The app also features biography of the cast and lists other TV shows in which the actor has worked in.

There’s a calender view which gets automatically populated as you add shows in your wishlist and gives you an overview of all upcoming and present shows you’d want to watch.

In the settings you can customize when you’d want to be reminded about episodes run time and new season of the show. The app will alert you as per your setting so that you never miss out on any episode. You can also enable a widget of the app in the notification centre to view TV Shows to be watched today.

One of the best features of the app is that it does not require any login or require you to select any cable subscription to work. You simply add shows to your wishlist and it shows the time and channel it airs on.

Overall the app does exactly what it says it does and more. We hope that the developers expand the search functionality by not just limiting search by title but also allowing to search and find shows by artist name, genre and more.

The app is available for free on the App Store.
