Hello, my name is Rita El Khoury and I’m a TV series addict. As my Trakt.tv profile would attest, I’m not using the term “addict” loosely. I’ve seen over 4700 TV episodes (that I could remember) and collected more than 7600. And it doesn’t stop at TV series either, I’ve been passionate about movies for a long time as well.
It’s safe to say that I take my entertainment pretty seriously, and I always scour the Play Store looking for the best Android apps to help me discover and watch new material, enhance my experience, and organize my collections. Here are the best 30 apps I would recommend to any fellow movie or TV lover.
I imagine my arrival at the pearly gates will be a grumpy one. Not because I’ll be displeased at my own demise; with advances in modern medicine I’ll probably dodge coffins past 100 and be mighty proud of myself for achieving such a span. I’ll be ticked off because I’m missing my favourite shows while St. Peter (or whoever mans the post) and I have the obligatory chat. You see the idiot box and I are good old pals, even if we get on each other’s nerves once in a while.
Keeping track of what shows you want to watch, and their various series, seasons and episodes, can get annoying. ‘What episode is this?’, ‘When’s the finale?’ and ‘What time does ‘House’ start at?’ are questions that pass through my mind regularly. If only there was one of those new-fangled apps I hear so much about…
TV is one of the best forms of entertainment in the USA and around the world. Talk to just about anyone, and they can give you their weekly TV schedule (mine includes 30 Rock, Community, Modern Family, Mr. Sunshine, and a few guilty pleasures). If you watch a lot of TV shows, they can become tough to manage — when is the next new episode on, did the show’s airing time/date change, is there a special viewing on, etc. Luckily, there are several Android apps that can handle these questions and much more.
