Hi! My name is Cédric Bozzi, I make websites and iOS apps, and this is my blog about technology (mostly a Twitter archive, really).

TVShows

@tv@

TVShows [via] subscribes to torrent feeds and automatically launches your BitTorrent client to download new TV show episodes as soon as they are available (it’s an OS X alternative to the cross-platform, but windowsy, ted).

It’s got a simple, convenient interface (just type the title of a show you’re interested in, select in and click “subscribe,” then choose whether you want to start downloading an episode from the list or just wait until a new one is released — clever) and one of the most puzzling designs I’ve ever seen in such a simple app: even though there’s a green bubble saying “Enabled” in the status bar, you’ve got to quit the application in order for the daemon to start working and downloading stuff. I only realized that after 24 hours.

Reminder: management recommends Transmission as a companion BitTorrent client.
