Here’s a list of 5 TV guide apps for Android which you can use to keep track of TV schedule using your mobile phone or tablet. If you wanna watch something on TV, then it’s very important that you know when that something is scheduled to air. This is especially true for live TV, football games, contests, various different shows, etc., where watching re-runs won’t be as much fun. Having an app handy in these types of situation is something that’s gonna save you a lot of time browsing the web or going through the TV guide section of the newspapers.
