    You can change\remove your watching status and rating in tv\movie details. Will look into how we can make the overwrite function for stuff already on your watchlist without breaking what you have already marked as watched.

  8. Favourite shows

    As well as you can mark tv shows, series and cartoons as "watching" or "on hold". There should be a favourite option, so you can keep track of your favourite shows.

    Have a great day

  11. on the Plan to watch button a button that says, "Keen to cheek it out!"

    I was just browsing upcoming shows and thought That I might like to cheek it out but until I see the first episode I would not be keen to say plan to watch. It would add an extra category like Im interested but not committed.

    Currently, this is not possible. We don’t have the TV Time API key and they have not responded to the API key request. Ask TV Time to allow Simkl to import your data and give them the API key. Or Aks TV Time how you can export your own watch history data.

  13. Use profiles from TV apps on AppleTV/Roku etc. to import/track viewing history

    This will be a LOT of development hours...but...

    To address "Why can’t just import my browsing history from my cable provider?"...Well, I'd wager most of the users of SIMKL are digital natives. As cord cutters, using boxes (Roku, Firestick, Chromecast, AppleTV) or just a smart TV, BUT ALSO, we still use our parents Xfinity login credentials, a tedious strategy for importing is (theoretically) possible.

    A piecemeal method to import history from those Smart TV/Roku/Apple TV "apps" (that REQUIRE a license/login from a cable provider): FOX, CW, ABC, etc. To import viewing history from say a user’s FX profile (that’s connected…

  17. More Platforms, including MoviePass

    Include more movie/tv Platforms to connect to. Netflix/hulu/amazon are great. However, having it connect to theater accounts or, in my opinion the best idea, connect to moviepass. Connecting to moviepass would be perfect as it already tracks which movie you went to go see. Your platform would allow me to rate that movie right after seeing it.

  20. Automatic import from MAL

    I would very much like for Simkl to auto-import from MAL, instead of having to do it manually.
