  1. Multiple watching and watch date

    In <trakt.tv> you have these two feature:

    * You can set an episode/movie as watched with a specific date
    * You can set an episode/movie as watched multiple times

    It would be nice if these features were implemented in SeriesGuide, especially here's what it would be helpful:

    [1] When you set an episode/movie as watched, you have three option: [a] "Right now": it set as watched with the current date and time, [b] "On relase date": it set as watched with the relase date of the episode/movie, [c] "Other date": you can manually insert a specific date and time. These…

      Improve Filters

      SeriesGuide is great, but unfortunately the available filters are very limited.
      I think that a well designed filters should have the following structure:

      LISTS:
      * ListA
      * ListB
      * ListC
      * ListD
      * ListE
      ...

      STATUS:
      * In progress
      * Deleted
      * TBD
      * Ended
      * In production

      PROGRESS
      * To start
      * Uncompleted
      * Equal
      * Completed

      CATEGORIES
      * Action
      * Adventure

      • A 'watched' list for movies

        There already is a watchlist and a collected list. But I also watch a lot of movies in the cinema or I stream them via netflixx or hulu. I don't consider those movies to be in my 'collection'.

        That's why I'd like to suggest adding a 'watched' list alongside the 'collected' list (just like the series part of the app).

        • Sync lists with trakt.tv

          Sync the local lists to trakt and get the lists created in trakt. Then one can view and edit the lists on the PC too (with the trakt.tv homepage).

          • New algorithm for statistics

            Actually statistics are calculated every time you enter in the statistics panel. So, if you have a lot of shows and movie, every time you open the statistics page, the app takes a lot of time in the calculation. This problem can be solved by performing the calculations when you set as watched a new episode. Example:

            (1) I install SeriesGuide
            (2) At the beginning the total time of watching is T = 0
            (3) I add the show "Fake Title": each episode lasts 40 minutes
            (4) I set the first episode as watched, so become T = 40
            (5)…

            • Correct watch-date on trakt.tv

              Actually if you set an episode/movie as watched and it is not on trakt.tv, when this episode/movie become available on trakt.tv it is set as watched with the current date and time, and not with the real watch date.
              It should be better to save the real watch date, and then send it to trakt.tv.

                On iTunes there are a lot of series apps. But non of them as good as SeriesGuide.

                • Release dates based on country

                  The App is the best one for Android, but the date / time of an episode streamed for the first time on TV is not good for other countries than america.
                  The widget for example is not usable for me, because of the wrong times for our country (germany) :(

                    Update: It was suggested to use the tvrage API, see http://services.tvrage.com/. Anyone has experience with their API (quality/reliability)?

                    SeriesGuide gets its data from theTVDb.com for now which does not provide regional scheduling data. Right now I’m not aware of legal, cheap sources which provide APIs for third-party developers.

                  • Specific category for series that ended and are watched already.

                    For example, I've watched the Friends series and it won't have new episodes, and it is just there, and I want to hide it, but in a new category with other series what ended, and watched the whole series.

                    • SeriesGuide for Windows Desktop and Phone

                      I moved from Android to Windows Phone and discovered that there is no so good and comfortable app as yours for Android! All of them are very poor and not so multi-function. And it is not a problem for iOS, for example. But it is a real problem for WP.

This will help in getting information on tv show episode to be telecasted on that day or next, both on Google App and Google Now widget. Plus we will also get the information on Desktop through Google Chrome and other devices.

                        • Trakt.tv Account in Menu Sidebar with currently watching Element

                          I would like to see my trakt.tv account on top of the menu sidebar. actually it looks a little lost, cause of so much space in the upper part of the menu. Perfect room for some details from my trakt.tv account.
                          when i'm watching something it would be great to see the tv-show or movie poster as background like in trakt.tv itselve.

                                  • Allow the users too see a preview from the Tv Shows without having to add them.

                                    Allow the user to see a preview of the TV SHOW without having to add the tv show to the grade. It's really annoying that you must add a show just for to see the entire synopsis or the number of episodes!

                                      • New movies tab, Collected and Unwatched

                                        I have a lot of movies in my trakt collection, and it would be great to see all of them that i have not yet watched in one view.

                                        This would allow users to easily see what they have available and not yet seen.

                                        • Option to change theme colors

                                          I would really like to see some options to change the purple colour of the app. Like have 3 base colour (white, grey and black) and than like 5 colours to choose to replace that purple main colour. Is the only thing I find missing from this app is really the ability to replace that purple colour (I don't really like purple)
