  1. Naming and Describing: You can assign specific names and descriptions to your lists, allowing you to identify and categorize them effortlessly.

  2. Tagging and Note-taking: Add relevant tags and personal notes to your lists, ensuring that you can quickly recall specific details or thoughts about your media.

  • Explore Different Sharing Options: With the ability to set your custom lists as Public, Private, or Unlisted, you have complete control over who sees your content. Share your lists with the entire Simkl community or keep them confidential for your personal use.

  • List Discovery: When custom lists are shared publicly, other members can explore them. This allows people to connect over common interests and helps them find new content they might enjoy, building a better community.

  • Follow other Member’s lists or Official lists: By following a list, you can easily see updates and stay connected with what others are adding to their lists or recommending when browsing the “My Lists” section. Recently updated lists will move up so you won’t miss anything new added to the lists you’re following.

  • Pin lists to the top in “My Lists”: You can focus on specific lists without losing where they are by pinning them to the top. All pins are private and only you can see them.

  • Create with Friends: Collaborative Custom Lists enable you to work with friends, family, or anyone in the Simkl community to craft lists together. Perfect for joint viewing parties or shared interests!

  • Integration with Watchlists: Seamlessly blend your Custom Lists with your existing Watchlists, for a streamlined and cohesive browsing experience. See the count and percentage of movies you watched in any custom list.

  • Suggestions: This tool lets other members give you ideas for what to add to your lists. Whether you’re making a list of favorite movies or planning an anime-watching marathon, Suggestions can help you find things you might like but didn’t know about. It’s like getting tips from friends who know what you enjoy. With Suggestions, making lists becomes more fun and personal, and it might even lead you to discover something new and exciting. Try it out, and see how it changes the way you explore media on Simkl!

  • See who suggested which item and quickly approve to add to the main list.

  • Favorites Lists: Every show and movie has a 🤍 button. Pressing the heart button will add it to one of 3 lists: - Favorite TV Shows - Favorite Anime - Favorite Movies

Within these lists, you can even arrange your selections, moving your most-loved movies or shows to the top. It’s a personalized way to keep track of what you love most!

  • Import lists from many different sources: You can bring in lists from different places into Simkl. If you have favorite shows or movies saved somewhere else, you can quickly move them to Simkl.

This feature underscores Simkl’s commitment to providing an efficient and customized experience, tailored to meet the diverse needs of its community.

  • Take Notes: Add Public and Private notes to list items or a private note for the list. Each note for the same item is unique to the list.
