Episodes — Tracking TV on your iPhone
Nial’s back! Who Nial? Nial Giacomelli, the guy who created the splendid Showtime and Nibbble web apps. But this time his pixel goodness is wrapped in Cocoa touch, downloadable from the App Store.
Episodes follows continues Showtime’s story, but this time he’s serious. Episodes will keep track of your favourite shows, search through TVDB for episode info, and get recommendations for new shows. In terms of functionality it’s nothing revolutionary, but it’s certainly a pixelicious UI. It’s surprising that he’s accomplished all of this using relatively native controls.
Episodes is $0.99 on the App Store. One last thing I should mention, is the website; a slick parallax effect for switching between info panels.
