With the rise of a large number of online cinemas like Netflix and Amediateka, the series never ends. There are already more than a hundred of them and an attempt to keep up with them without the help of special programs can become a real nightmare. As a student, I only watched When I Met Your Mother and The Big Bang Theory. But how not to miss anything today with such a variety?

Based on this data, the platform will select the most suitable premieres just for you, which will be displayed in the "Recommendations" section.
On the page with the film, you can see its rating, read user reviews, as well as familiarize yourself with the actors and annotation.

In addition to the beautiful interface, you can choose the voice acting in which you want to start watching. On the page with the series, you can find out its release date, the number of episodes and the names of the actors.

The most convenient way to search for new series is through the "Top 50" tab, which contains the most popular at the moment premieres with detailed descriptions in Russian.
After registration you will be able to create your own lists with any names, for example: “I will watch”, “abandoned” or “looked”.

On the page with the film, its rating, a short description in English, as well as the number of seasons and episodes are indicated. The main screen shows the next series by the release date.

The YourShows app lets you mark episodes you've watched, search for new episodes in the general catalog, rate seasons, and check release dates for upcoming episodes.

When the Serialus application is launched for the first time, the user is shown a brief guide to the settings.

There is no authorization or registration, which in turn excludes the possibility of transferring data to another smartphone.
Google+ account sync is available only in the paid version. Despite the presence of filters, the search is slow and not always correct.
