Hi guys, an app I've been working on for the better part of 6 months has been released into the market as a free beta. It's called TV Show Favs and lets you manage all of your favorite TV shows.

It shows you a personal schedule for all upcoming shows of your favorites, has a top favs for all users, allows you to track every episode you have watched, and it even has a custom notification manager where you can either choose to be notified for all your shows, or just the shows you want, or even at an episode level. You can choose to be notified at a default time (5 min up to a week), or select an individual episode and choose the exact time/date. Also, everything is stored online, so you never lose any of your data, and once we eventually have a website to manage online, and potentially an iphone app, your info goes with!

In less than 3 days we have had over 1000 downloads already. I am working my butt off to fix any bugs that are reported and implement any feature suggestions. Any feedback is great! Thanks!

Here is our website - www.tvshowfavs.com - which has some info about the app as well as some screenshots, and the link to the app in the market. If you are too lazy to go to the site, here is the market link: http://market.android.com/search?q=pname:com.tvshowfavs

Here are some screen shots:

Hi, I just downloaded your app and it looks great. I cant wait to try it out.
Do you have any plans to make a widget showing upcoming shows.

I love this program. You should incorporate reviews and user ratings from IMDB or something... and the ability to write reviews directly in your app and post to IMDB (if possible). Also, if you could mark all shows on all seasons watched at once instead of tapping seasons/season 1/menu/mark all watched... meaning eliminate one middle step... seasons/menu/mark all watched, that'd be sweet too.

Awesome. Just downloaded, will post impressions soon. I really liked droid series, but no notifications hurt.

Quick impressions:

Interface is amazing for finding and searching shows
It looks like it will be invaluable for keeping on top of things (most of my shows happen to start this week, so I get lost!)

In fact, the only problem I have with this app, is it doesn't look like it will be that good at keeping up with old series your going through. To fix that, I'd like to see
  • In the page, with the show, under seasons tab, there is a list of all seasons. Under the season number, I'd like to see "x unwatched episodes"
  • I'd like to be able to mark the entire season as watched
  • An option to mark multiple seasons watched at once

Droid Series does these things excellently, if you want a good example. However, yours is far better at keeping up with current shows. Fix the above problems, and I would for sure be a buyer. Otherwise, I'll still be stuck with two programs for TV.

Its a good app, and i saw that you added calender integration? I'm not sure how to sync it with my calender though. Is this actually a feature or something coming soon?

We do have plans on doing user reviews and ratings within the app. We also plan on having relational suggestions, as well as comments for shows and episodes. These are things that will likely make the main release, possibly the beta. Also, in the next update (Sunday or Monday), we will have the option to set a show as watched and a season as watched. As for IMDB, this is a great idea and I will look into it.

What exactly do you mean by no notifications? There are notifications in the app, in fact the most customizable notifications of any app I can imagine.

Thanks for the suggestions! Like I mentioned, we do plan on the option to mark shows/seasons as watched. I do like the idea for showing how many unwatched episodes though, so I will add that to my todo list!
