Bundle Me Crazy

Screen Shot 2014-10-10 at 23.24.39

Great news for iOS 7 and iOS 8 users: you can now buy all our Episode Guide apps in one handy bundle, thanks to the App Store’s new feature – freshly released for your convenience earlier today.

Included are all seven apps, from Poirot to Frasier – with everything in between. You can also “complete your bundle” and only pay the difference for apps you don’t already own. It’s very swish.

There has never been a better time to complete your collection – head over to the App Store now and grab that crazy Episodes Guides Bundle now.

  • The Belgian Detective Guide (new title for Poirot for iOS)
  • The Knitting Detective Guide (new title for Miss Marple for iOS)

Apple have approved both changes yesterday. The apps behaviour and layout has not changed, just the displayed title in iTunes and the App Store has.

ITV MarpleApple have approved Miss Marple 1.2 – this update adds the following features to the app:
