I use this app pretty often sometimes and then I also have breaks where I don’t use it at all. Along the way there have been some glitches but like any other app, that’s going to happen as frustrating as that may seem.... Especially when you need it. For the majority of the time it’s pretty accurate and matches what I see. I do not have cable or satellite tv and with that comes no guide on tv so this works great when I want to take a glimpse at what’s on without actually scanning each channel. I have noticed lately that there is at least 1 new channel, that I know of, for those who use an antenna. In my area (Midwest) it is 6.5 Start TV. When I do land on that channel it doesn’t show the info as to what is currently on and it is not listed on this app yet so I do not usually last too long watching it. It would be nice to have the channels on the app update as soon as the channels on TV do but I am not a programmer so I haven’t the slightest clue how hard it is to update apps more often. Some I have weekly, some are monthly and some are yearly. I guess it depends on how often those are using the app and how bad the glitches are. I have had this app on various phones since about the time apps were available and I haven’t let go so far.

Initially confused, now happy!

Initially I was upset and confused by the new update, deleted it and reinstalled it after I couldn’t find another TV App with features I wanted. Once I took the time to maneuver my way around the new site, instead of complaining about it, and made sure my favorites and Watchlist were still there, I really began to like it. It was helpful to read the FAQ’s also. I selected my satellite cable Provider (Direct TV), and my most watched channels which are saved to favorites with the red heart. The channel numbers and channel logo are on the left. All my favorites appear at the top of the page. My Watchlist programs are still shown after the update, and those with new episodes are marked New. I can also search a specific program in my Watchlist to see future dates it will be on TV. I still have the push notifications, which is good to remind me which programs in my Watchlist are coming on, and it’s convenient to see which of my Watchlist programs are airing or streaming. I have happily used and enjoyed the TV Guide App on my iPad for several years, and glad it’s back!

“Streamlined” into Unusable

The update has changed and taken away features and options in an attempt to streamline, but has really just made everything less usable. Looking at listings, it’s harder to read the times and see the lines indicating time slots. The watchlist now displays the upcoming shows airing in a slideshow that you have to manually scroll through and does not list the times or other airings of the show, even if you tap on it. It used to be you could read a list of upcoming shows at a glance organized by day, now it’s clearly meant to be a flashy design choice. I even sent an email asking about this feature and received no response, even though it’s been over a week. I can’t adjust the settings much anymore either, for example, choosing a different start page. You can set your streaming apps, which would be nice if there was any purpose to it. Some people have said they are included in the Discover section, but I have yet to see anything related to it. Streaming shows should have their own section to begin with. Overall a pointless update that removed the features and elements that were most useful.
Update: to find the airings of a show in your Watchlist, you have to tap on the show, scroll down to “Where to watch” then tap on “More.” I shouldn’t have to take three steps to view information that used to be available at a glance or just one step
