If you’re a fan of Weeds, the hit Showtime series about a pot dealing family, then you’re likely aware that season eight is already under way. However, you may not know, or have forgotten, that Showtime Networks offers an iOS app, which has recently been updated.
The app features cast and character biographies, episode synopsis and clips, air time schedule, reminders, news, media links, wallpapers, photo booth, and even a full episode. The content is updated frequently and, of course, that includes the latest season details, videos, and more.
It isn’t unusual for the theme to slightly change with each season, but this being the final season makes it a very special occasion for the series. So, in honor of the big finale run, Showtime has done a little redecorating, replacing the dark green and yellow plant color theme with a neon green and black appearance.
The new color scheme is reflected on the Weeds official website and in v3.0 of the Weeds on Showtime app. In addition, Showtime has changed the app icon from the skyline to a Weeds logo-type image. Basically, it’s a nice visual makeover.
Following on the topic of Weeds, we’d like to remind users to also grab a free copy of the Showtime Social app for iPad. While also offering an episode guide and some other content from the Weeds app, Showtime Social is designed to immerse you in live discussion with social network integration for chatting, polls, and more as an episode airs.
Since new episodes are shown on a weekly basis, you may need some other entertainment content to watch in the meantime. For that, you’ll want to check out our Best Apps to See What’s On TV AppGuide and the latest App Synergy installment, How To Enjoy A Summer Of Movies.
Weeds on Showtime is designed for iPhone and iPod touch running iOS 4.0 or later, and available in the App Store as a free download. The content within Weeds on Showtime is only suitable for mature audiences of 17 years of age or older.
