DroidShows: Reboot of DroidSeries TV Show Tracker

This fork adds quite a bunch of features, among which an improved interface, a menu overflow button, quick search, separate archive/backlog list, swiping gestures, more show information, backup/restore, double episode entries clean-up, faster updating, cover and fan art view, a modern launcher icon and it speeds up responsiveness significantly by (more) efficient SQL queries and some threading. DroidShows only needs an internet connection when updating the show info or watching full-size posters.
