An application to organize your TV shows consumption
TV Show time is a free app for smartphones, tablets and iPod. It allows you to select the tv shows you watched or want to watch. The list of shows is quite exhaustive, and can be extended through users’ demand. From classical Game of Thrones and Breaking Bad, through the popular The Wire or House of Cards, to the controversial Black Mirror, South Park or Metalocalypse, the list is so complete that you can even find the most popular anime in it!
TV ShowTime app
It can be used as a reminder, a kind of to do list, it tells you what show you have to watch, which episode is the last you have seen so you don’t lose three hours looking for it. Indeed, for any show, you can check a whole season if you watched it entirely, or choose specific episodes you have seen. Even months later you can find out where you stopped in your tv shows consumption.
To make sure you won’t miss any episode, you can choose for which shows you want to be warned of the next release.
You can then see the countdown until the next episode, and when it is released, TV Show Time will send you a notification.
You can then attribute a mark for the episode you watched, it is not mandatory but can be useful for other users.
Interesting features of TV Show Time
The time you have spent watching tv shows. It goes from hours, to days, weeks and months. Maybe even years, but I haven’t spent enough time watching shows yet, I’ll keep you updated!
You can recommend a tv show to your friends, which is quite interesting. Indeed, we have all lived this scene : you told a friend, weeks ago, to watch a video, but he never finds the time to watch it. Truth is, he never wanted to watch it or he totally forgot about it. Now, he won’t have any excuse! He might even be more interested in watching the show because of the description he can read on the app.
Why does TV Show Time work ?
Main reason : this app perfectly fits the current TV consumption trends. It has been years now since the tv hunger spread like a disease all over the world. We ingest more and more TV Shows, we spend hours watching, hours waiting, hours starving. We don’t even try to regulate our absorption: 2 seasons missed? Let’s watch them in one night. After all, sleep can wait… TV Show Time surfs on this hunger, just like Netflix. It is even a bit odd they came so late…

Why won’t this app be perennial ?
In my opinion, it probably won’t last; most users will stop using it or won’t really use it. Indeed, we all are lazy consumers who do not want to break our show consumption rhythm to tick the episode we just saw. At best we can update the app every few days, weeks or months… Not really up to date !!
I will conclude saying the app is very useful, convenient and easy to use. I will continue to update my list, probably partially, and not the way the dev. wants me to use it, but I won’t delete the app. In any case, I can’t help thinking that most users will eventually drop this application.
