TV Guide, eat your heart out. This listing app is a faster and more streamlined way to see what’s available to watch, and of course, it’s much more portable. You create an account, tell the program where you live – or where you’re at currently – and you’ll get a list of network and cable providers in the area. Once you choose the one you’re using, the program will provide you with a list of everything that’s on, including the channel number and the time. The easy to use interface even features network logos, making it a cinch to find the program you’re looking for.
To make your selections even easier, the app allows you to save favorites based on the shows themselves, featured actors, genre, user ratings and more. Not sure about a title you’ve never seen before? You can read what others have to say and possibly see a preview video of the show.
And I.TV is not limited to television either. You can look up the movie listings in local theaters too and take advantage of the same search and favorites options as you do for the television listings.
It’s a great app to use if you’re a perpetual channel flipper or if you need an easy way to see what should go on the DVR. Also, it’s perfect for travel. There’s no more hunting for your favorite stations in the hotel’s cable guide.
Note that you cannot view TV shows themselves or record them through this app. It is simply a way to see what is playing.
