TvTime – TV show tracking for your phone

In recent times although UWP versions of apps are all the rage there are some older apps designed for Windows Phone 8.1 that work just as well. TvTime is one such app that is both beautifully designed and that works extremely well. It eschews some of the bells and whistles of the newer Tv Show tracking apps like Trakter to deliver a very focused and easy to use app. When you start the app your simply asked to add a few shows via search or it’s suggestions and your done.

Once you have added a few shows you are greeted with a beautiful layout for all your added shows arranged in order of the one whose episode is to air soonest. It also shows you the show title which you may choose to hide. Besides this it also shows you how days away the next episode is as well as how many episodes you have missed.  Everything else is hidden away in a bar at the bottom that can be summoned by tapping the three dots at the bottom.

Tap on any show and your taken to a page showing the episode details of the next upcoming episode.

Swiping across from this point on will show you the episodes list from where you can mark episodes that you may have watched. You can tap on any episode to get it’s details and navigate to next or previous episodes with the buttons at the bottom.

To round it up there is a page showing the details of the show and it’s cast members. Tapping on any of the cast members will take you to their respective IMDB pages.

One thing to remember is that this is a Windows Phone only app so sync between devices is not really an option. What it does have is the option to backup and restore your collection to Onedrive. Unfortunately the restore function is not very reliable. There is very little feedback on what is the progress of the restore and I was never really able to restore my entire collection. This unfortunately is one of the only sore points in what is otherwise and excellent and nice looking TV Show tracker for Windows Phone. The app is free to try for upto 5 shows. A single in app unlocks the option to add unlimited shows. Get it from the link below.
