Does this program only track and update new episodes of your favorite shows? One of my shows on there is Overhaulin and the other one is Hoarders, and neither of them show any upcoming releases, even though there are repeats. Is there any way to differentiate the two?

Any show displaying "n/a" either means there is no air date for episodes that havent been shown yet (depending on whether broadcasters have dates available) or there is no current season.
We are looking into ways to develop Prowlr further, but it all depends on the quality (and availability) of open API.
Instead of checking various sites for air dates or "which episode am i on now??" etc, joe decided to write some basic code (on an iphone friendly UI as we both have them). we were also a bit cautious of reading something we would rather avoid (synopsis etc).
After he cracked that and it worked spot on, we discussed the possibility of making it a proper web app.
Did some research on some of the larger forums (avforums.com for example) with some polls to check how many shows people watched per week etc (to help scope the UI show bar sizes and amount of detail etc).
After we came up with the name and colour scheme, developed it into what it is today (Although we did change API sources once after the first draft was finished due to coding reasons).
Released it onto a few forums, started the twitter and facebook pages, and then took the plunge with apple.com/webapps submission.
now were very close to 1000 registered users and growing daily.

If anyone has suggestions of how to improve prowlr, or features they would like to see added (keep in mind that it is a web app for the time being, so dont ask for push ).
We are planning v2.0 tomorrow evening and starting on the next updates, so either let me know in here, or add to the feedback form on prowlr.tv (accessed via a pc/mac)
We do not want to:
- clutter the UI
- make it harder than 2-3 taps to check the information you want
- fill it with useless pages of information that is irrelevant (like episode actors names for example)
(im not promising that all suggestions will be added, but all will be discussed)
