Televised gives you a sleek way to view your TV schedule.
I like watching television. It’s a great escape from the daily grind and a wonderful way to let my brain relax at the end of a long day. The only problem I run into is keeping track of my favorite TV shows. I love the idea of using an app to notify me when my shows are coming on and if they are new or not. There are several apps available for iOS devices, but none have been as responsive or stylized as Televised by Robocat.
Televised is designed to make your life easier by keeping track of your favorite TV shows. You get a nice clean overview of your weekly television events and the ability to add shows quickly and easily. The app provides you with a notification when your shows are about to air and episode summaries that are hidden for those who don’t like spoilers. You have the ability to mark episodes as watched by just tapping on the show’s icon. Televised even allows users to share their favorite shows and what you’ve watched through many social networking options.

Until recently, Televised was a pay-for app. You were able to track up to 3 shows, but then had to complete an in-app purchase to add additional programs. As of February 24, the app is free to download and users can track unlimited TV shows, get unlimited notifications and unlimited background notifications.
I have found Televised to be extremely handy. I love how easy it is to track down your favorite shows and add them to your list. I also really like how there is a ‘today’ banner in the corner of the show posters. It’s a nice reminder of what you have coming up. One thing I would really love to see in future updates is the inclusion of a Today notification widget. I could see daily productivity with television viewing be greatly improved with that kind of add-on.
Televised is a really great, slick television show tracking app that will make your TV viewing that much more enjoyable when you know that you haven’t missed an episode. Televised is available for free download in the iTunes App Store is available for iPhone only. I would love to see this app developed for iPad as well and sync with iCloud.
