Trakt.tv started as a side project when @rudf0rd, @jimmydouglas and I wanted Last.fm-like scrobbling functionality for XBMC (now Kodi). Automatic tracking of what we watched and collected made scaling a media collection easier and a lot more fun. Little did we know that it would turn into a full-time job! We have scrobblers for all major media centers and a full featured API that powers lots of mobile apps and other community projects. Four years in, we now have over one million users, all acquired organically with no marketing budget or outside investors. We have those users to thank for making this journey possible, as the majority of our operational costs are covered by VIPs who have contributed money year after year. Thank you so much!

And what a ride it has been! We are so grateful for all of the support from the community over the years. This is only the beginning! By the way, for those who like our rebrand and new site design, take a look at http://www.wongfremont.com/. Darick is the mastermind behind our beautiful new look.

I created a collection to keep track of Trakt.tv powered apps as they're hunted. http://www.producthunt.com/@barn...

I came across Trakt a while ago and even built my own little 'check-in' mobile web app using their API so I'm a big fan. The new design looks amazing!

@ryanstubbs Glad you like it Ryan, thanks!

Love the polished look and the numbers are impressive. From what I've seen the API is pretty solid, too. I'm sending you an e-mail about integrating trakt.tv with spoilr.tv – very excited about this.

@stefanwild Nice Stefan, the timer based approach to comments while watching whenever is awesome. We've had similar ideas, so its cool to see someone build it!

I'm a huge fan of goodreads and searched for a bunch of products that did what Trakt does. What made me choose Trakt over the other's was the external API. Thanks guys for making an awesome product.

@brett_hardin Awesome, thanks Brett! The API has enabled a ton of awesome apps and integrations, glad you're making use of it too.
