Rippple updates

Version 4.3




🧪 This version is currently being tested by our Beta Testers

  • See when a movie includes during and/or after-credits stinger. Even get a notification when you check-in so you don’t miss any cookie.
  • When looking at the full cast of a show or episode, you’ll now have the guest stars too.
  • The actor page now has a “From you History” section with shows and movies you watched with this actor in case you're wondering where and when you saw him/her.
  • A brand new TV show Ratings Chart is now available. Tap on a Tv show, season or episode rating distribution chart to get access to the full TV show Ratings Chart with each and every episode and their ratings over time. Really useful when you don’t know if you should start watching an ongoing show or if you want to get a feeling about a season compared to another.
  • A new setting has been added to tell Rippple to automatically re-add a TV show in your watchlist when you watch or check in an episode of it. This is to work around an automatic behavior of Trakt that can be counter-intuitive to some users.
  • We’ve added a new link to get more info about Rippple and our contact info on the login page just in case.
  • The Automatic sorting in the To Watch has been improved.
  • The count of episodes behind in the To Watch has been fixed for some edge cases.

Version 4.2





  • Multi-select

You can now mark multiple episodes as watched in bulk. Press the select button and make your choice or use the system's two-fingers pan gesture to enter multi-select mode (like in Mail or Photos).

  • Hidden form Progress

Hidden shows in your "To Watch" are now better identified as such. You can also find a new link to a list of your hidden TV shows in the bottom of your "To Watch".

Bug and Misc

  • A crashing bug as been fixed on the "Activities" section.
  • Some copy have been updated in the settings.

Version 4.1




This new version is all about Search!

Smart Searches

With Smart Search, you can create your own searches. For instance, you can “get 10 Action and Adventure movies released in 2021 that are currently trending and have a trakt rating of 75% or more” or “get 5 Animation or Family TV shows with a PG certification that get released on Netflix or on Apple TV+”. Your Smart Searches are saved on iCloud and synched with all your devices running Rippple. Smart Searches are found in the search section but can also be used to dynamically configure your “To Watch”.

Search Suggestion

When you type something, you’ll now have a list of movies, TV shows and people suggestions to help you find what you’re looking for faster.


Trending Search

If you’re looking for a bit of inspiration, look at the Trending Searches to get a mix of movie and TV shows searches that are currently trending.

Plus some bug fixes and improvements… as always.

Version 4.0




Rippple 4.0 brings huge improvements of the To Watch, Drag & Drop support, a powered-up Sidebar, more Links to external sources, more Sharing options, better and faster Actions across the app and much much more.

To Watch

  • You now have an "Upcoming" row on top of your To Watch so you can better prepare your TV schedule. This new row includes the movies and episodes that are coming your way in the next hours/days but also retain the last ones that dropped so you can easily see what’s hot out of the (TV) oven.
  • With the Upcoming addition, the To Watch now refreshes itself smarter.
  • You can now "start rewatching" and "stop rewatching" directly from Rippple (this action is only available to trakt VIP members).
  • The To Watch has also been optimized to work better with the rewatch feature and the “hide from progress” feature.
  • Your To Watch will now refresh faster when you only watch one episode or when you check in… like way way faster.
  • You can now swipe from left to right on an episode in the To Watch to see the full list of episodes or to hide the show.

Drag and Drop

  • You can now drag movies, episodes, shows, seasons from any list and drop them on a custom list in the new iPad sidebar to add them to that list. Multi drag and drop is supported so you can move a bunch of stuff from one list to another faster.
  • You can also just drag and drop them in another app that supports opening a URL.
  • You can also drag the poster in a show or movie detail and drop the image in other apps like Twitter to share or Photos to keep the posters you like.
  • You can also drag the title in a show, movie or episode detail and drop the title and URL in other apps like Twitter to share or Notes to keep the title and URL of stuff you like.
  • Multi drag and drop support makes it possible to drag and drop in one go the image, the title and the URL of a movie or show.

iPad and Mac specific

  • The brand new Sidebar shows the watchlist, collection, recommendations and custom lists for easy access and drag and drop.
  • Improved 3-column layout on iPad in every state and orientation, even on the latest iPad mini.
  • The keyboard shortcuts have been changed to use the latest API.
  • You will also be able to navigate the sidebar natively with the new keyboard focus APIs. Just hit the tab key to put the focus on the sidebar and use the up and down keys to navigate.

“Open in” and Sharing

  • When looking at the details of a movie, show or episode, you can now have links to external available sources (trakt, IMDb, TMDb, official website and/or YouTube).
  • Links to socials and more have been added for actors and crew members too.
  • Sharing (the trakt URL of) a movie, an episode or a show is now possible.
  • You can also share the “open in” external urls with a swipe action.

General improvements

  • All actions have been aligned and simplified everywhere. You can use the action button available a bit everywhere throughout the interface or long-press a poster or a media in a list to get the same powerful actions.
  • You can now configure the primary and secondary Swipe Actions for episodes and movies.
  • More options have been added in the app settings like enabling title for episode in To Watch.

  • Revamped Settings

Rippple gained some new settings recently… it was time to clean that up. The settings are now better grouped and every settings has an icon and a submenu if needed to make it easier to navigate. Happy configuration!

  • Recommended Movies and Recommended Show Notifications. As a Premium user, receive a notification when a TV show or movie reaches the top of the most recommended lists on trakt.

Version 3.6





New super cool stuff

  • Rippple will now show you your own 1 to 10 rating and indicate you if you commented a movie, episode, season or TV show in lists. Screen Shot 2021-02-26 at 20.29.54.png

  • We’ve added more swipe (left to right this time) actions to the Activities tab: rate or comment episodes and movies, or recommend movies right from your history. Screen Shot 2021-02-26 at 20.31.18.png

  • Sometimes you glance at reviews to see if a movie or a TV show is worth your time but the comments are full of spoilers and the ratings are not telling the full story. That’s why we added a "Sentiment Analysis" indicator on all comments. It’s not full proof but it can help you choose what comment to read and ultimately what movie or TV show to watch. It's also showing on your own comment's preview before posting so you can adapt your tone to appear more or less positive. Screen Shot 2021-02-26 at 20.35.40.png

  • Movies and TV shows now display more useful information like their status (only when it makes sense). Screen Shot 2021-02-26 at 20.38.26.png

Some other cool stuff

  • Beginning with this version, we are going to open a “what’s new?” page when you open a new version of Rippple the first time. After 20+ official releases, we thought it was a good idea to let you know when something changed.
  • We’ve added the possibility to force dark or light mode for Rippple. You can also follow the system appearance of course.
  • It’s also now possible to disable the “where to watch?” if you do not care because you know… you know?!

The less cool but worth mentioning stuff

  • We’ve made the purchase process a bit better to avoid any frustration when all you want to do is use Rippple to the fullest.
  • The tabs icons gained some weight (nom nom nom) and are now more readable.
  • Your stats will now be loaded even if your account is private.
  • The “To Watch” won’t be reloaded if you didn’t change anything in the "To Watch" settings.
  • And this version may or may not contain less bugs… it depends on the amount of new bugs introduced VS the one crushed.

One more stuff…

  • We’ve added an “Experimental” section in the Settings. Features in there may change a lot or be removed in future version but fee free to test them and let us know if you like them or not or if you'd like them different.
  • If you want, you can now test the “Calendar” feature. When enabled, a glanceable 15 days calendar is added on top of the “To Watch”. It’s built on top of the notifications system. This means you need to enable “To Watch” release Notifications for the Calendar to work properly.

Version 3.5






  • Find "Where to Watch" movies and TV shows. The minimal data we have is provided by JustWatch via the TMDb API. With just a glance you can see where to stream, buy or rent the movies and TV shows you find in Rippple. Tap the provider logo to open TMDb to get more info about the offer and the actual link to the provider.
