Few ideas...

Firstly, do you have an idea when you going to release the new version of your TvShows app?

Here are few features that would be good to have.

1) have a iOS & Android app that is synced with the TvShows application. When you add a show on the phone/tablet, i will automatically add the show on the computer and be ready to download whenever it is available.

2) cancelled and ended shows, could you maybe put them in a separate "folder" on the app, so they are not all together with the shows that are still showing? Easier to clean out the shows that is no more!

3) a easier way to setup a custom tv show that is not in the subscribe list. I managed to do it a few times but its hard and hard to find instruction on how to.

4) have a list that shows the next episode thats going to air...

5) how about maybe have your OWN torrent client so its easier to setup, but have the option IF people prefer to use other clients like Transmissions or uTorrent.

6) make a windows version of your app... I have a few friends that has PC's and they are jealous of the simplicity of this app on the mac. They have used TED but they say its not reliable.

7) Talk shows are different from Tv Shows. They dont have proper episode guides. example: Conan, Chelsea Lately etc etc... Could you maybe make it easier for people to find talk shows?

8) PLEX support... at the moment it works perfect but sometimes some files does not read on plex. Is it maybe a way to rename a file once its downloaded instead of doing this manually? IF you had your own torrent client, that should be possible ;)

Thanks for an awesome app btw...

    Hi Juhani,

    Thanks for your suggestions. We have no ETA yet for version 3.0, sorry.

    1) We have thought about it and haven't made a decision yet. Mainly, putting an effort to create something that we are not sure will pass through Apple's filters... for now, you have Miso, which provides more or less that functionality.

    2) Ended shows actually appear different in your subscriptions (they show an "Ended" ribbon over the show image and they are grouped together at the beginning of your subscriptions). The problem is that in order for a show to be considered as "ended" by TVShows, we have to remove it from the list, and we don't always do that quickly enough.

    3) Custom subscriptions are intended for advanced users. We provide instructions on how to create a feed for custom subscriptions, but that's not a functionality of the app (the app "just" accepts RSS feeds).

    4) If you click on the show image you get a window with the episode list for that show, and it shows you when the next episode airs. Version 3.0 will probably include something like a "calendar" that shows you the next episodes from your subscriptions in one place.

    5) We have thought about it, considering it for version 3.0.

    6) That is out of our roadmap. We are Mac users, so we wouldn't give proper support. But TVShows is free source, anyone can port it if they want... or they can get a Mac ;)

    7) I don't quite understand. You can find talk shows as easily as all the other shows... If you mean categorize the shows so users can browse through talk shows (or any other category) separately, that's planned for version 3.0.

    8) Postprocessing features (such as renaming) are planned for version 3.0.
