DroidShows: A Reboot of DroidSeries Offline TV Shows Tracker
This fork adds quite a bunch of features, among which an improved interface, a menu overflow button, pinning, quick search and filters, a separate archive/backlog list, a last seen episodes log, swipe gestures, more show information, backup/restore, double episode entries clean-up, faster updating, cover and fan art view, a modern launcher icon and it speeds up responsiveness significantly by (more) efficient SQL queries and some threading. DroidShows only needs an internet connection when updating the show info or watching full-size posters.

Some pointers:

  • Don't forget to update all shows regularly (pull-to-refresh)
  • Context menu has more options (long-press item or use overflow buttons)
  • Swipe left-to-right to go back
    In Shows Overview:
  • Tap poster for next episode info
  • Double tap for for show info
  • Long-press poster external resource (to *[url]s directly, or list)
  • Swipe right-to-left to mark next as seen
    In Show Details:
  • Tap poster for full-screen view
  • Click full-screen poster image for fan art
  • Long-press full-screen poster to open in external app
