iShows 2 app review: a comprehensive TV show tracker

Reviews

Introduction

iShows 2 by Luis Recuenco is a comprehensive TV show tracker that will help you to keep track of all your favorite shows including which episodes you’ve watched and when the next episodes will air. In today’s 1000 channel universe, as well as all the other viewing platforms such as Netflix, it’s easy to miss an episode of one of your favorite shows if you’re not careful. If you’re an avid TV watcher this app is the perfect companion to ensure you’re always up to date on your shows. This is a free app and it’s compatible with the iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch.

Track Your Favorite Shows

If you do a quick search in the App Store for TV show tracking apps you’ll find dozens of them. The best of these apps include comprehensive summaries of the plot of your favorite shows, as well as individual episode guides. In the better ones you’ll also find great art work, and some even include clips and bonus materials from the show. iShows 2 is definitely what you’d classify as one of the better entries in this niche. It includes all of these features as well as some other little extras.

The best iPhone apps for TV

What’s puzzling about this app is that they only allow you to track four of your favorite shows at any one time in the free version, this seems extremely limiting. To gain unlimited access to all of your favorite shows you have to unlock it with an in-app purchase at a cost of $3.99. You can also purchase theme packs to spice up the look of your app if you like. This app does have a nice user interface that makes tracking your favorite shows a breeze, but the question is it really something most people would be willing to pay for? The iShows 2 app will require 32.3 MB of available space on your iOS device.

The Essentials

You can search for your favorite shows in a couple of different ways: you can choose from the apps top picks, or you can type in the name of the show you’re looking for using the search icon in the bottom left of your screen. Once you find the show you’re looking for you can simply tap on the plus sign to add it to your list of favorites. Each show includes detailed cast analysis, picture galleries, video clips, episode guides, and a show rating. You can also leave comments and create a conversation with other fans of the show.

Best iphone and ipad apps

When you sign up for an account, you turn the app into a social media tool. Creating an account unlocks a lot of other features as well. You’ll be able to leave your own comments, not just view other peoples comments, and you’ll be able to rate your favorite shows. You can even view your friends favorite TV shows as well.
