    Hi guys,
    Wanted to share another app that I made, hopefully some of you find it useful. :)

    TV Blaze | Windows Phone Apps+Games Store (United States)

    TV Blaze helps you keep track of your favorite TV shows, your watched episodes progress and finding new shows to watch.

    With Trakt.tv at its core, TV blaze provides access to its large TV series collection and user contributions.
    All this information is enriched by additional data from TheMovieDB.

    The app can be customized in a number of ways, so that you can better organize your favorite shows and see the information that is important to you.

    There will be more features coming up, so if you need something that's missing or have an idea on how to improve the app, please let me know. :)

    Features:
    Quick access to a trending TV shows list
    Detailed show and actor information
    TV guide, all coming up episodes at a glance
    All your tracked shows are kept offline so you always have access to them
    Keep track of your watching progress
    Customizable live tile lets you pick the data that you are most interested in
    Customize how the app looks and what data you want to see
    Group and sort the show lists in various ways
    Calendar view
    Pin shows to your home screen
    Integration with Trakt.tv
    OneDrive backup/restore of your data

    You have access to all app features, but some require the unlocked version to be permanently saved.

    In app unlock features:
    No ads
    Background agent that keeps the live tile updated without opening the app
    Pin shows to your home screen
    The following settings can be permanently saved:
    - Live tile customizations
    - Home view customizations
    - Various group/sort settings

    I've been using TvShow so far, but that doesn't see many updates any more and has a few annoying bugs.

    This looks really good, gonna give it a run :)

    If you tap and hold on an episode, you'll get the option to set the episode as the last seen, marking it and all previous episodes as seen.

    But you are right, I'll also add an app bar menu option to set all episodes as seen.

    Oh wait if It's that straightforward then we don't need a separate button lol... I just tried it and yes it works... The problem was that I was using the tap and hold method on the "season" bar :/

    Like to be able to switch between your favorites, premiering shows and currently airing shows.

    Just make the auto refresh for main live tile a free feature which will give it a much bigger advantage over tv show to make this app the best one

    I thought I had posted sth here lol.. In any case I have a small issue..
    I added the show person of interest and naturally i'm up to date with the show so
    I had marked all previous episodes as seen... But when I checked how many episodes I had left to see
    the app told me that I still had one from SE 1
    So I just went to do it manually.. However when I checked again there was an episode from SE2..
    After I did that one manually as well, the episode from SE1 which I had already marked as seen manually jumped back to "not seen"

    Thank you for reporting this.
    I'll investigate and issue a fix as soon as I can.

    Awesome! Have to check out the new options! Afaik can see there's just one issue left...
    When the app lists episodes that have yet to air (with no official dates) it does so by giving us the date 31 december, 1969?
    Is there a purpose to that or just an oversight?

    Thanks for pointing it out. :)

    Yes I was going to mention the time picker issue lol
    I would however like to ask if it could be at all possible for the live tile to show the upcoming shows
    I think you have this for the paid version, but since I'm using the free version I have no access to that option

    Please consider this

    Another update is available.

    I was planning on doing more work for this update, but due to unforeseen circumstances I only had time for this much, more next week.

    Changes in version 1.0.8.0

    • Context menus for the TV show data on the home page, setting episode(s) as seen, manipulating the recent data
    • Tweaked the check for updates on startup and the update process itself, fixed some bugs there
    • Recent and To See lists can be removed from the home page
    • Favorites/To See list views can be grouped/sorted alphanumerically
    • Tweaks and fixes

    Edit: The update is available in the US, but not in all regions yet.

    Edit2: Should be available everywhere.

    I was looking for an alternative to TVShow, since it hasn't been updated, and yours looks pretty good. I used it a little bit and it's very nice so far
