Update 1610

We’ve submitted a small but necessary update today. Trak.tv, the site you are getting all of the stuff you see in Trakter from, had to stop serving images to third party apps, due to increased CDN costs (you can read all about it here), so we had to find another solution for you guys to keep seeing images. We went with our own server that is getting images from TMDB and TvDB. The server is also caching images so we are producing less request to those sites, eventually preventing the trakt.tv images situation happening all over again. We can only hope other app developers did the same. All this means that image you see in Trakter might be different than image on trakt.tv, for some shows and movies. It is also possible that images will load a bit slower. Continue reading Update 1610

First update in 2016

Update: The fix for sign-in crash is now live.

Update: We’ve identified a nasty bug in this release that causes the app to crash at first sign-in. To overcome this, just launch the app again and you should be signed-in. We already submitted the fix to the store so it should be available in a day or two.

Hi everybody, I have some exciting news. We have released the first update in 2016 and it is a big one. At a first glance it might seem that not much is changed, but a lot of code has been (re)written. As announced before, we stopped development for 8.1 platforms, which means that this update is only available for Windows 10. It also means that there are performance gains just because we were able to use the new features in UWP for the parts that were previously shared between W10 and 8.1 platforms. However, we also added a few new features. More info about these features is available below in this blog post.

How Trakter sync works

Hi all, it’s Jure Purgar here again. I was going over ideas on our feedback forum (by the way Thanks, we really appreciate it) and there are some ideas / questions about sync process, so I decide to write a blog post about it, to explain how we are doing it and why we are doing it this way. On the other hand, I’m not saying the sync process is perfect so we are always open for ideas that are technically possible and make sense. This might be a bit technical, so if you are happy with how sync works and you think that this is something you really don’t need to know, than you can stop reading.

What’s next for Trakter

Hi everyone, my name is Jure Purgar and I’m the guy who actually writes code that’s running, hopefully without many issues, on your Windows devices. In other words, I’m the developer of Trakter. All of the other content of this site is written by a friend of mine Jure Jeram, who is also the Trakter’s biggest fan. We share the same first name, however we are not the same person. The third guy in the team is Jure Jereb who designed the Trakter’s icon and translated it to our native language: Slovenian. Again, we all (weirdly?)  share the same first name, but we’re not the same person. Seriously.
