  1. Send alerts when a tv show or movie is available on one of your streaming services like Reelgood.

    A feature I've been wanting for a while is to get an alert when a movie or tv show is available on one of the streaming services I subscribe to. Reelgood does a great job at this, providing email, text, & push notifications. I would also love to be able to filter searches by what is available on my services and filtering out shows I've already seen. If Simkl had these features, it would completely replace Reelgood and Rotten Tomatoes for me.

    What I am looking for in the perfect movie/tv tracking service in order of priority is:

      • More robust calendar.

        How about the ability to completely customize the calendar? Put all of my upcoming releases in movies, TV shows and anime in one calendar.

        • Bugs in Windows app.

          When running it causes strange behaviour in already opened windows. Sometimess you need several tries to switch between opened explorer windows for example. Or when switching from browser window to explorer window the focus changes, but the browser window stays on top for some reason. Or you need to click on explorer icon in taskbar several times to see the explorer window on top of somethimg already opened.

            Most likely you have multiple Microsoft Visual C++ versions installed on your computer and the tracker gets stuck, uninstalling them usually helps. You can find Visual* in: Control Panel\Programs\Programs and Features

          • Habitica

            I'm sure I'm not the only one with issues with instant gratification as well as finding time to watch movies and TV.

            And seeing as how Habitica is a habit building website with a feature for miscellaneous good and bad things, I could see potential in creating functionality so that when you check off an episode or a movie as watched Habitica rewards you.

            Heck, for extra greatness, there could be functionality for other things on the site, like creating ratings and reviews, which also benefits Simkl for things like that feature for finding friends with TV and Movie compatibility.

            • A True Simkl Plugin For Plex

              I'm currently using the Simkl Webhook with Plex, which is good btw, but we need something that's a little more versatile, along the lines of a true Plex plugin, that's not restricted to just marking shows/movies as watched based on what's currently being watched with Plex. Something along the lines of the Trakt plugin, that can also be adjusted to Push all-time watched statuses, watched progress, ratings, lists, newly acquired shows, removed shows, etc associated with your entire Plex library over to Simkl, or Pull the aforementioned from your Simkl library and sync it with Plex. That would be ultimate…

              • About the broadcast times of some series

                Good evening, I want to help you organize a few Turkish series about the time of the broadcast. Çukur (The Pit) series is broadcast on show TV at 8:00 pm on Monday at time, and after the episode is broadcast, the channel is added to its own site and to PuhuTV. Jet Sosyete (Jet Society) series is broadcasted on TV8 channel at 20:00 on Wednesday at Turkey time, and after the publication of the episode, the broadcast section of the series is added to the YouTube channel.

                In addition, this series(https://simkl.com/tv/861940/the-not-living) made the final of the 8th episode.

                • Crunchyroll episode list incomplete

                  Simkl works mostly great, but there are crunchyroll episodes not indexed.
                  This also makes the scrobbler extension not to work.
                  For example:
                  https://simkl.com/anime/38636/one-piece/episode-385/ is available at https://www.crunchyroll.com/one-piece/episode-385-halfway-across-the-grand-line-arrival-at-the-red-line-658601

                    • It would be good if there was a way to find "movies like this." Just plug in what you're looking for and SIMKL genereates suggestions.

                      Similar to TasteDive and Movie-Map.

                        Crunchyroll is expanding to VRV, but shows watching on VRV don't track in CR. Expand tracking to include VRV and it's varied services.

                          Half star ratings. Being able to vote 8.5* instead of 8* or 9* would be really nice for more fine tuned ratings.

                                  • TV Shows/Movies Poster & Backdrop Artwork Submissions

                                    Would it be possible one day to suggest or perhaps submit an updated poster and/or backdrop artwork for a particular tv show or movie? For example, Hawaii Five-0 has updated art reflecting their new characters...

                                    https://imgur.com/s8j7VK0.jpg

                                    https://i.imgur.com/PXDJwDi.jpg

                                    I think it would be a cool feature if we could submit possible candidates for updating tv shows and movie artwork here at Simkl, or at the very least offer suggestions for you guys to consider on the backend.

                                    • Just an idea for the win app

                                      Just add the "offline" part to the windows app you already have?
