Maybe you record your favorite television shows to watch them later or maybe you choose to check out new shows on Netflix or Hulu instead. Whatever your viewing pleasure, it can be hard to keep track of which episodes you have seen and which you have missed if you do not catch them at the time they originally air. This is when Serist can come in to help you. Track what you have watched and create a To Watch list so that you never miss an episode.
Follow your favorites
You can browse through the trending shows or search for a specific one. Then to follow it, just swipe. You will then see how many episodes have aired and when the next one is scheduled.
Mark watched episodes
You can indicate that you have watched an episode in two different ways. First, you can swipe to mark it as watched and then choose when. Or, you can tap on an episode and select if you have watched “now” or when the show aired.
View your shows
Tapping on any of the shows you have decided to follow allows you to see all episodes that have aired. You can also view members of the cast and then see when the next episode is scheduled.
Serist syncs with Trakt.tv, so by signing in or creating an account you can receive notifications. From push notifications when your show is about to air to daily and weekly email alerts, you won’t miss a thing.
While the app is very simple to use and a great way to track your watched episodes, it would be nice if it allowed for bulk actions. For example, if you could mark all episodes, or even those with an entire season as watched, it would be easier than doing them one-by-one. But, for overall tracking the app is handy.
Serist is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. It is available for $1.99 on the App Store.
