What is it about?
To use Showrunner, you of course need to have TV shows to track. And the app makes it easy for you to do so: Just search for the titles of the shows you want to track and add them. The app also lets you discover new shows to track by browsing titles by genre or network. Once you’ve added the shows that you wish to follow, you can mark the episodes and seasons you’ve seen, so you can be sure whether you’re behind or caught up. Showrunner will then notify you of new episodes. You can choose to be notified at the exact time a new episode airs or, better yet, you can opt to be notified ahead of the start of a new episode by a certain time span.
Get notifications. Get a push notification to alert you when a new episode of one of your favorite TV shows is available. The good thing is instead of receiving a notification at the exact time a show airs, you get to decide how ahead of the actual airing time the notification should be. Set Showrunner to notify you an hour, 30 minutes, 15 minutes, or 5 minutes before the show starts. You can even set a custom time span if you’re a premium user.
Discover shows. Getting started with tracking TV shows is quite easy in Showrunner. Just search for your favorite shows, add them, and you’re good to go. All caught up and looking for even more shows to watch? Go to the app’s Discover section and explore programs by genre or network.
Why we love it
Showrunner helps you stay on top of your TV show consumption with, first and foremost, smart notifications. You need not be closely familiar with the schedules of your favorite TV shows. You need not memorize what times and which days of the week their new episodes air — a daunting task especially when you have to deal with time zones. All you have to do is add shows to track in Showrunner and the app will notify you of new episodes. You can set notifications to arrive ahead of the start of new episodes, thereby allowing you enough time to prepare yourself and your devices for them. Showrunner also makes it easy to find new shows to get addicted to with its discovery-focused section, which enables you to explore titles from a specific genre or network. You can also get more out of the app with an optional subscription, which removes ads and unlocks premium features such as iCloud syncing for shows and preferences, a Today widget for checking in to episodes, hand-made lists of different TV show categories, cool stats about your viewing habits, and custom time spans for notifications. And the best part is that Showrunner has a clean and simple interface that makes it easy and delightful to use.
Showrunner is FREE but there are more add-ons
