    "I watch so much TV. Sometimes it's too hard to keep up with it. I'm glad this exists, because I'd be lost without it. I can't keep track of what episode of Deep Space Nine or The Next Generation i'm on, but now I don't even have to write them down in my journal, so I can save it to record my dreams."

    "It's free ... always a major plus. Hope they made an app for Android! Our household has many favorite shows, and it's hard to keep up with what has been watched. If it's on Android, I'd most likely buy it."
