  1. I would love it if you could specify whether an episode is a season finale or a series finale.

      • Link to Directors and Actors when we click on their names.

        1. Link to Directors and Actors when we click on their names. So that we can view all the shows/movies they have worked on.
        2. If possible a facility to create Lists (Eg. List of Dystopian movies I like etc.)
        3. Addition of a favorite button, for shows, actors and directors

        • Keyboard shortcuts

          It would be nice if the site would support (more) keyboard shortcuts. Especially when setting up a new profile, you go through a lot of series/movies. It would be awesome if you could hit right/left arrow to focus the next item in the list, hit 1 to 9 (or 0 for 10, I guess) to provide a stars rating, and some clever keys for adding to lists.

              • Need to reload after going back a page

                REALLY wish had Amazon Prime importing history. Also, doesn’t apply to me, but Apple…whatever iTunes/AppleTV app would be a good media importer.

                +Stretch goals might be to import from those “TV apps, HBO GO/NOW, FOX, NBC, (you can see them on Chromecast, AppleTV, Roku), to import from a user’s FX profile (that’s connected to their Xfinity account to authorise it) could be cool.

                For UI changes
                If feasible, in Chrome you can have custom search engines, so, in the omnibox (where the URL is) I can type www.bbc.co.uk TAB and then type “X tv series” and return & Chrome takes…

                  1. Amazon and other sites don’t currently have history page of your watch list or APIs. If you know any, please let us know.

                  2. You can use https://simkl.com/search?q={search_term_string} for search

                  3. Could you please try disabling Adblock or try using Chrome browser and see if you still have a back button issue? If yes, What page you open then go to, when the back button breaks?

                      • Dr Who

                        When you watch https://www.netflix.com/title/70142441 (S5E1), Simkl adds https://simkl.com/movies/410818/doctor-who-deep-breath (title says deleted, maybe this could be redirected to the correct one instead?).

                        It should add S5E1 instead (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1577256/)

                        • 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…

                              • show the name of the movie/tvshow/anime on the lenguage of the location of the user

                                Sometimes it is hard to find a movie, tvshow or anime, because you do not know in what lenguage it's the name on Simkl.

                                Would be great that by the "location" option on the profile settings, the web show the names the movie, tvshow or anime have on that location.

                                IMDB, show on the info of a movie,tvshow or anime, the different names it have for some locations. Maybe Simkl could take the names and locations by there.

                                        • A couple of things to look at.

                                          An option to check if shows haven't been recently watched for more than 1 month to be removed from watching. Also that monthly subscription and maybe a way to show all the watching lists into one, without switching tabs.
