DroidSeries is a TV Series/TV Shows browser and tracker application for Android. Tacking down TV series, episodes, air dates, etc, is a difficult task as there are so many TV series. DroidSeries will help you manage your favorite TV Series and keep track of the episodes that you have or have not seen.

I created this application and just released the first version. Suggestions that help improve the app are also welcome and appreciated!

It's most probable that you will find a bug, so sorry in advance and keep those bug reports coming!

I set up a Google Code page for this app: http://code.google.com/p/droidseries/
DroidSeries source code @ Gitourious
DroidSeries is available in the Android Market under the name "DroidSeries Beta".
All the necessary information plus the apk file (for a manual download), DroidSeries-0.1.5-3.apk is available there. (ChangeLog)


I attached some screenshots of the app. They can also be seen in the Google Code page.

Thanks, will give this a shot as MyEpisodes Viewer no longer works.

Don't know if this is possible and it might be a bit cheeky.. but would it be possible to import the database from MyEpisodes? ;) I've spent quite some time going through all of the shows i've watched on there, it would be good if I could skip doing it again!

Edit:

Suggestions-

*Couple of Serie/series typos?
*I would prefer it if the specials were not included in the 'Episodes not watched' calculation. Many of them are silly little clips which don't even air everywhere in the world. Also it includes them in the number of Seasons, which gives the incorrect number for most shows.
*Some form of simple backup/online sync is a MUST
*Shows without a thumbnail appear to be selecting thumbnails from other shows at random
*Following on from that, an option to manually add a thumbnail?

The layout with thumbnails look superb and it all moves very fast

Brilliant idea, will be using it for sure. I'd like the ability to backup/restore data too, for my own sanity

I really like this I think it will help me keep track of all the shows I like to watch and make sure I dont forget about them while waiting for the next season to start. I agree with the typo fixes and possibly an option to remove specials. Something not mentioned though which is not a big deal but would be real nice, add an option to select all episodes as watched in a season to speed things up a bit.

Aside from the few typos, this is a pretty nifty app! I see potential in it.
