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

        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?

        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

        Yes, please. All the other apps are lacking in some respect. A trakt app with notifications and all features would be great

        would love this because none of the apps at the moment have an option to view your collection. I have all my movies and tv shows on an external hard drive connected to my tv but you only get a list of folders and thumbnails so I decided to input all my stuff on trakt. I would really love to be able to choose a movie or show from my hard drive by searching my phone with synopsis's available etc

        Yes! Please create an official app. It would be great to include a list of recent & upcoming episodes not yet watched.

        I got an iPad Air for Christmas and wanted to be able to track the television series that we watch in the evening (usually from disc). We found Seenit to be excellent, except that not all shows have the correct episodes. Now I have to come up with a way to make those correction, either to the database, or something.

        As far as I've tried all apps, I can't seems to find a real app which is directly build on top of Trakt.TV and supports most features. Not just TV shows or only movies. This would be awesome.

        Is there any change we, the community, could create an awesome app for Trakt.tv with all (most) it's features? I'm happy to start here.
