Thanks to Trakt you will be able to know when the new episodes of your favorite series are released, write down the series and movies you have watched and easily share them with whoever you want.
In my free time I like to enjoy all kinds of series and movies, but since I have the habit, good or bad, of watching several series at the same time, I always have them installed on my Android mobile an application that allows me to keep track of all the movies and series that I am watching.
Over the last few years I have tried several apps of this type and one of the ones I used the longest was TV Time, a free application that I already told you about a while ago. But, that is not the application I am coming to talk to you about today, since, in the middle of this year, I decided to start using Trakt, a free app packed with interesting features to keep track of the series and movies you watch.
Trakt is the best free app to keep track of the series and movies you watch
Trakt is a free application for Android that stands out, first of all, for having a simple and intuitive interface that is organized in four tabs: Home, TV Shows, Movies and Me.
The Home tab is practically the only one I use, since this screen shows you, at the top, a list with all the next chapters of the series you are watching. Thus, if you click on the red button with the word track After watching an episode, it is marked as watched, and then The next chapter appears in that section.
Likewise, just below this list you will find four more sections: one with a calendar that tells you When the next episode of a series you are watching or following will be releasedanother with information about the time you have spent watching series and movies, a third with all the episodes or movies you have recently seen and finally, a section with series and movie recommendations based on the content you have already seen.
If you want to search for a series or movie to add to your collection, just click on the magnifying glass icon located in the upper right corner of the interface and write the name of the series or film you want to follow. Once this is done, a list will appear with all the series and movies that match the search and in each entry you will see a cover of it, the name, the year of releaseif it is a movie or a series, the average score of the rest of the platform users and three icons on the right side that will allow you mark it as a view, add it to a collection, and add it to a list.
Additionally, if you click on the cover of a series a new screen will open with four tabs and if you click on the tab Seasons You will be able to see all the seasons of a series. From this section you can tap on a specific season and mark the episodes that you have already seen by tapping on the tab Episodes.
But that’s not all, because Trakt can also help you notify, in advance, of the publication of new episodes of the series you followbut since this option is not enabled by default, to activate it you will have to follow these simple steps:
- Open the Trakt app on your Android mobile
- Click on the tab I
- Tap on the option Profile
- Click on the gear icon that appears in the upper right
- Inside the section Notifications press the button Episode notification offsets
- Finally select one of the three available options: 15 minutes before, 30 minutes before or one hour before
As for the rest of Trakt’s functions, we must highlight that this free app allows you follow other users with similar interests to yoursshare a series simply by entering it, clicking on the button with the three vertical dots located in the upper right corner and clicking on the button Compartir and link your Trakt account with home media server platforms like Plex or Jellyfin, so that Every time you watch a series or movie on them, they will automatically be marked as watched in Trakt.
