How can we improve Trakt.tv?

Official Trakt App

It would be great to have an official Trakt app to mark shows watched and view upcoming schedules

        Just improve the mobile site/website. I haven't used any Trakt app since the new website.

        plz, release an official trakt app for android....

        Absolutely need this. None of the third part apps support all the trakt features.

        @Nathan, no, that's a third-party client.

        Does this count? https://www.microsoft.com/store/apps/9nblggh202b5
        It's not official. Yet.
        Maybe one day, once it has enough features, it can be an official app and the source code is handed to trakt.tv
        Even if it doesn't become an official app, trakt.tv can still have the code to further develop/explore.

        Please please join the 21st century and release your own official Trakt.tv app on Android

        I had to reset kodi and am trying to install trakt again. I already have an account so it won't give me a place to add the code again. Please help.

        More for the app functionality in general: One advantage of having an app would be the ability to have certain entries cached (On Deck, Watchlist, etc.). Then, even if the device has no internet connection, the user could mark them as watched, rate, and write comments. When the internet connection becomes available again, these actions could be synced back to the site with their original timestamps.

        @Anonymous, using Trakt from a bookmark feels app-like up to a point, but there are some issues with it. The site doesn't behave very well on slow or flaky connections, for one thing. A native app could do more to provide affordances for the user when loading data or transitioning between screens that can't be rendered until an API response comes in.

        FYI, if you're using Android, you can add a Trakt.tv bookmark to your homepage and it will act just like an app would. I've never felt like I needed anything more from an app as it's already formatted well for phones.

        @Jamie Mkaelson: What?

      • Jamie Mikaelson commented  · 

        When are you out to public as I cannot get of my friends phone

        I gave a second chance to apps and realized that greatly improved. The SeriesGuide is serving me very well. I also saw that the others have improved.

        The other apps that interact with trakt don't update and sync with my trakt account. An official trakt app would be really nice to have. Other wise i have to goto the site trakt.tv
