[prMac.com] Debrecen, Hungary - Missed your favorite show again? Forgotten which episode is next? With so many shows and movies, enabled by the digital medium - whether a television program, documentary or film - entertainment tracking and discovery remains a challenge. Watchlist TV, your personal TV tracker, endeavors to simplify the problem by learning about user preferences, social behavior, and recommending and tracking choices.
Featuring ergonomic design and easy-to-use functions, Watchlist TV makes entertainment discovery and tracking as easy as pie. Available on iTunes for iOS-based devices, the user-friendly Watchlist TV is a next-generation app with analytics. Using the app, a user can get a detailed overview of actors, shows, seasons, episodes and movies. From user preferences and history, the app recommends entertainment customized for each palate. Users may share preferences or choices with friends and family in a social setting.
Intelligence in the app relates to an understanding of how things get caught on. Also known as social epidemics, Jonah Berger, author of Contagious, explains the phenomenon of how products, ideas and behaviors diffuse through a population. Watchlist TV tracks shows and movies and identifies trends from collective user behavior.
Watchlist TV also monitors user activity such as shows and movies watched, or programs and films wished for. Based on the data, an algorithm generates a user behavior profile. From the insights generated, the app presents entertainment options for the user. A viewer who enjoys Zombie movies, for instance, may enjoy the television show, The Walking Dead, or the movie, World War Z, recommended by the app.
Watchlist TV also functions as a personal TV tracker, with a host of features. Collection feature allows a user browse and manage shows and movies, for instance, or using the Calendar function, a user could add entries to a watch list or review history. The app sends instant alerts to a smartphone, whenever a new episode becomes available.
For those who enjoy entertainment in a social setting, the app can be integrated with Trakt.tv 2.0, which allows users to create a media library and build a history of every TV show and movie watched in a fun-filled way. Using the 2-way Sync feature in the app, a user can enjoy the benefits of Trakt.tv, like keeping the library up to date.
