  1. Sort by time to watch

    When I'm choosing the next show/movie to watch, I usually go by what genre I want and then by how long it wold take to watch. I remember the genre of shows by their name, but I never know how long it would take to watch them. I can open up a new tab for the show to find out, but if I could sort by time to watch (like we can with name, rank, etc) that would be really nice. It doesn't need to be exact, the guesstimate that's shown on show pages would be plenty.

  2. Search results sould show exact BEGIN matches first

    Search results sould show exact BEGIN matches first.
    When I search for "the magicians", when I type "the magic" I should see this result before "care bears: unlock the magic". Results should also be sorted by rank and also titles I watch should come befrore everything else.

    There is currently a bug in the search that does not sort relevant results first. We’re looking into it, something to do with collecting search stats incorrectly.

    Searching for “the mag” should display “The magicians” at the top when it’s working correctly.

  3. Every time I see a poster, I should have the "add to watchlist 3 choice button"

    The add to watchlist button should be EVERYWHERE always offering the three choices (plan to, seen this, not interested). Offen I heard about the show and want to be able to add it right from the cover. Everywhere I see cover this need to be there because that pretty much the whole point of such a web site. So basically, whenever I see a poster, this 3 choice button should be there.

  4. Automatically move shows to On Hold after missing x episodes.

    Automatically move TV shows under "Watching" to "On hold" after missing 3-5 episodes.
    I have a number of shows that are backup (oh duck I've got nothing else to watch), that are generally not interesting enough to warrant having on the calendar, but still "good enough" if there's nothing else.

  7. movies

    I love this site!

    Something I'd like to see though is a way to search for movies. Also pages of movies instead of the page just loading more every scroll down, with every newly added batch I find it lags more and more to the point where I can't keep going and have to refresh the page and start over with a new category.

  8. Anime movies in parts

    Movies like this https://simkl.com/anime/40079/akira/episodes/ are considered as a complete movie and in "parts", but others only as a complete movie. Can you remove all the "parts" from the database?

  9. Multiple types of list view

    Would be nice to have options to choose how to view a list: 1. Default view with the standard large image thumbnail, 2. A small image thumbnail and title, 3. No image thumbnail at all only the title text.

  13. Show the duration of the episodes of a series or anime

    On the info of a tvshow/anime it show you how much it takes to see all the episodes of the tvshow/anime (for example: 5 hours)

    Would be good if it show too, the duration of the episodes (for example, all the episodes last 25minutes usually)

    and would be good too have the duration of the episode on the episode list

    And if it is a tvshow that have different duration for episodes, show an aproximation.

  16. 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:

  18. 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.

  19. 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

  20. 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.
