TVShow and PrimeTV temporarily down but should return soon

WP Central

We received a few reports from users that the excellent reminder + scheduling apps TVShow and PrimeTV are both "broken" right now. Specifically, when users try to update the app to pull down their customized TV schedules, they are met with an error message that they cannot connect to the servers.

We reached to TVShow's developer Rudy Huyn about the matter and we were given a simple explanation. In short, both apps use the site TVRage for their information and that API is currently undergoing maintenance

There's no word on when it will be back but rest assured it should return. Until then, there's not much it seems either developer can do until TVRage flips the switch again.

TVShow and PrimeTV temporarily down but should return soon

I haven't tried the TVShows app yet, but the PrimeTV app is amazing... BUT I'm pretty disappointed that the developer has not updated the app in quite a while and hasn't responded to any emails when he used to all the time.  It makes me think he abbandoned the app? Which sucks since I'm a paying customer... :(

I used to use PrimeTV, but suddenly some shows simply wouldn't add to my list. I emailed the developer about it, but he never responded. Pretty sure the app has been abandoned, sadly.
However, I've switched to TVShow and it's just as good (and works properly too).

Totally agree. Tried both, kept TvShow and love it... and Rudy has responded every time I emailed him. He also developed the excellent "Bible Journal" which I use to show people what "Metro" is supposed to look like.

Nope, tv show is too laggy for me. Even swiping lags. Prime tv is not perfect but its alot smoother. Subjective.
