An Important Update About the SideReel iOS and Android Apps

We are sorry to announce that this week we will be pulling both the SideReel iOS and Android apps from their respective stores and discontinuing their availability. This is something that we wish we did not have to do, and delayed doing so for as long as possible.

Unfortunately, we must pay licensing fees to display various information – show listings, posters, etc. – in the apps, and the cost of this information was not being offset by the advertising revenue we have been making. We have been losing money continuing to run these apps for quite some time, and sadly we can no longer afford to do so.

Our website – which is mobile responsive – will continue to run unchanged. This means that if you were only utilizing the app previously, you can still access your tracker – and many additional features not present in the app (such as your lists) – by going to on your desktop or in your mobile browser. Your login credentials will remain the same, however you can contact us using GetSatisfaction or at if you are experiencing any issues. 

Our hope is that one day we can figure out a model where we *can* offer an app. Until then, we hope that you will continue to utilize the SideReel website. Thank you for supporting the SideReel apps throughout the years.

This makes me so sad! I wish you had a premium app I could buy. I’ve been using and recommending you for years and years! Best of luck; bring the app back as soon as you have a business model for it please!

I’d pay for this app! The web site works fine on my iPhone but I’d still rather have the app. What about a subscription? Honestly, I’d be more inclined to pay for this than the tv shows themselves. ;)

I’m disappointed! I use the app daily and would pay for the service.

I only just paid in April to remove the adds, what a waste of money that was.
