Great Tool

Love this app which I just found. I have been looking for a very clean way to keep track of recommendations from friends, things I read about or hear about. So easy to add them here! Very appealing and uncomplicated.

Would love to see this extended to allowing custom categories (theater, recipes to make, restaurants, websites, streaming media) even without the ability to pull in info from the internet. Maybe with the possibility of using a photo to replace that section? For the moment, I am creating my own categories/lists (ie Food ideas) and just putting the info into the title as a custom Video Game!

Developer is accessible and open to ideas!

Best app for what it does - suggestion to add note option

I am not a fan of the new aesthetic changes. The 3 options “The Pile,” “Activity,” and “Themes” now take up half the screen - in black mode you can’t see the outlines, either, so the organization looks off (I didn’t realize “The Pile” button was one long rectangle until I saw the screenshots here). Also I’m not sure “Themes” needs to be front and center all of the time (it’s also one of the few options under Settings, so it feels redundant).

I also dislike that the checkbox option was removed from items on the list in favor of ellipses with options, so it now requires 2 taps rather than 1 to check an item off. The list view also looks like each item takes up more space, so you see less at a glance and need to scroll more.

I still like the app but the new aesthetic/layout changes make it feel more clunky and less stream-lined.

— Previous Review —
This app is certainly the best for keeping a list of what to watch, listen to, or read.

My only suggestion would be to allow for the option to add a short note to things on your list. I often see things recommended online or by friends and sometimes forget the context of why I added something. So it would be nice if I can add that to items on my list (e.g., recommended by John Doe because it’s about X, Y, and Z”).

Well Designed

This app is really well designed, it doesn't give me a migraine just looking at it like other tv tracking apps... it is just the right amount of visual, not too much. I am glad that it is really simple, but also think it could benefot from a few more features. 1. it would be nice to record a bit more about shows/podcasts/etc. whether it be checking off what episodes/seasons you have watched or just being able to make notes about it, which could also be used for thoughts/review of the media. 2. it would be nice to be able to set notifications for the shows, podcasts, etc. you choose. 3. when you repeat an item they could be connected and share the same notes.
