  1. Sync MAL & SIMKL

    Sync MAL & SIMKL so that whenever I mark an episode as watched/completed/not interested it automatically updates MAL. The way it is now, whenever I watch a new anime episode or update an anime to completed/Not interested/plan to watch I have to update it on both sides separately. Be great if I could update if on SIMKL and have it update on my MAL

    • rewatched series/movies/anime

      hey :) ive been a user a long time. and after some years of trying to find a good website for me this is the best one. there is one thing i would like! i rewatch many movies and series even anime. but i cant put it in that ive watched it twice. i know it would be a big update, but i think its worth it. that you could somehow put, rewatched where you can choose watched, dropped it, hold. then there would be a rewatched, and endless count on rewatched times.

      when you then press rewatch button, there…

        I am planning to create some sort of edit interface where it would be possible to enter the number how many times you re-watched and to reset the marked episodes. In idea stage right now. But currently no plans to keep a history of both times you watched the same episode only the last watched date would be saved.

      • Recommendations based on profile

        It would be great if there were recommendations based on past ratings.

        • A button for tv shows you watched twice

          A button for tv shows you watched twice so you can keep track howmany episodes you watched.

          • Needs prequel & sequel Imformation.

            Just as the title says, the only thing stopping me right now from becoming a SIMKL user is this.

            Besides that guys keep up the great work and the user base will grow I love the concept.

              • tv show/ anime list improvement

                i feel the idea of having image and a description when you click on dashboard then if you go to TV list/ anime list having images and a description there would help seeing the title alone makes it difficult whether if i wanna re-watch or not

                    • Rating

                      I think that it could be great to be able to rate each season of a show and not only the whole serie.. Moreover I wish that the rate can be removed if I wrongly mark a thing (Movie,anime,serie..)

                      • Expand list of streaming options (i.e. Amazon Prime, Crunchyroll, Funimation, Crackle, etc)

                        Listed streaming options should be expanded to include Amazon Prime, Crunchyroll, Funimation, Adult Swim, Crackle, TubiTV, and other popular streaming options. Reelgood is a competitor that has many of these options listed when on a title's information page.

                        • Clearly list streaming options from a title's main page

                          Right now you have to click on an episode to see the available streaming options, but there should be a clear list of available streaming options for the series in general from the main information page of any title. This is a feature on the mobile apps.

                          • Better lists and overviews.

                            In the 'currently watching', you should have a divider. Over the line should the 'my list' that is displayed on your profile, and underneath it, all 'currently watching' that you are up to date on.
                            ----------------
                            Also, Adding a 'on hold' status. You sometimes want to take a break - and not have it in 'currently', but not in the 'dropped either'.
                            ---------------
                            Also, would be nice with custom lists. Not as a status, but where you can gather things like 'movies I recommend for dates' etc.

                            • Subtitles for each Movie/Show page.

                              - Add subtitles created by SIMKL users and certainly verify them.

                              or even better,

                              - Import Subtitles from a popular website like VLCsub does. And put each related subtitle file inside the right Show/Movie.

                                    • wrong output from filters

                                      Hi devs,

                                      Me once more, it's just an heads up.
                                      I complained a while ago about timeouts and wrong outputs because of that. And that was fixed, as i was really happy to see that to be fixed.
                                      After the fix i added a ton of series to my list and now I see that the results when looking for series "not in my list" i get a result back, but it still contains items from my list.

                                      I'm not looking for a solution on this issue because i am that one off.

                                      But it's more a kind of kudos…

                                        Create an app that holds both the capabilities of an entertainment app and a forum. At least add areas where people can talk with one other about their favorite movies or shows without leaving the app itself. and perhaps allow us to use the app to watch our favorite movies and tv shows on the go.
