Remember which Poirot books you’ve read, which TV episodes and movies you’ve watched?

Let this app help you keep track of everything Hercule Poirot, Agatha Christie’s famous Belgian detective. We’ve compiled a list of books and short stories, TV shows and Movies. You can keep track of what you’ve seen/read and discover hidden gems you may have missed.

We had a lot of fun putting this app together. We found that we were losing track of which books we had read, I know that sounds impossible but it’s true, maybe it’s the advancing years of age shrinking our little grey cells but we needed some help. Even if you don’t forget which books, movies or shows you have read or watched, it is also useful as an aide to ensure you don’t miss anything.

So hence the app was conceived and born.

I’ve put together this article to delve into the app and help you understand how it works.
