I’d like to make Mizuu the best choice when it comes to movies and TV shows on your Android device, and I know that a few of you have been requesting some sort of TV show tracking. I’m seriously considering adding it to the next update, but I want to hear what you guys think first.
Here’s what I’m thinking:
I’ll implement the feature using Trakt.tv, so you’ll need an account with Trakt.tv in order to make use of the feature. Using Trakt.tv has a bunch of advantages, mainly that you’ll be able to sync your TV show tracking between devices – and of course on the web.
Also, I’d like to enable users to create a Trakt.tv account directly within Mizuu to make it as easy as possible. Once the account has been set up, you’ll be able to get your list of upcoming episodes and you can add TV shows you want to track.
I’d also like to add some sort of calendar integration, so Mizuu will add appointments to your calendar to remind you when the episodes are about to air.
My only real concern is that the servers at Trakt.tv aren’t that powerful and I’ve experienced several outages in just a few hours while checking out some of the more advanced parts of the API.
So… What do you think? Any suggestions? Let me know in the comments.
Update: So, I’ll definitely be adding this functionality. It just won’t be in the next update, as I’ll need a bit more time for testing. It’ll be in version 2.3, which is expected around mid June.
