Why Use this App

So why use this app? There are plenty of TV dedicated apps out there but what makes this one unique? Well first of all it's important to look at the developer/source, you know you're getting the most trusted information out there since it has been created by TV Guide.

The best iPad apps for watching TV 2020

This app has actually been mentioned in a number of media sources and was even voted one of the top 50 Must-Have Apps of all time by USA Today. The question is with all its accolades and features to back it up why does this app only seem to garner mediocre customer ratings? Let’s take a closer look.

It seems this app had been suffering from some crash issues but those were addressed in its latest update. The hope is that the customer rating will now improve thanks to the recent updates.

Features and Tools

The app itself provides users with a number of tools and features so that it can be used as your TV watching companion tool. The idea is that this app can enhance your TV watching experience.

Use it to set up your own personalized Watchlist. On this list you can add your favorite must-see shows then organized them and get information on where and how you can watch them.

The New Tonight filter makes it possible to view only the new episodes in the listing, there are links to video clips of TV shows and movies, check out what is trending, create your own alerts, and so much more. If you subscribe to HD channels you can view the HD-only listings, which is a big bonus in itself.

There is a social aspect to the app as well as you are able to see what your friends are watching through Twitter and Facebook and of course you can share what you're watching.

My experience with the app is average. I find that it is packed full of useful information but much of this information is slow to load and doesn’t always display in the most user-friendly manner.
