Sequel Interface

The media database space, for TV and movies is a tough space to compete in. With longtime favorites like Sofa Time, ReelGood, IMDB and JustWatch as well as the recently released Trakt app there are some real quality competitors out there. Sequel, by indy developer  Romain Lefebvre, is a worthy edition to the mix and it shines in a way none of the rest do. It adds tracking for books, audiobooks and video games to the mix.

From Sequel's main interface, you can search all categories at once. If you type "Fallout" into the search, you'll get info on the recent Amazon Prime series as well as the Xbox game. If you select any item, it is automatically added to the correct category in your personal lists. You can also create collections meeting your own criteria, five in the free version and unlimited in the paid app.

Besides searching, you can also browse trending and upcoming items.
