Pleased with the software
I’ve been using the music, movie & book collector software for many years now and have always been pleased both with the software (approx. 37500 entries in the music one alone!), and the speed at which you and your team respond to any queries, so thank you for that and long may it continue! — Mark Johnson (United Kingdom)

Happy camper
I have been with CollectorZ (Music & Movies) for a couple of years or more. I have been Happy with every fix and upgrade they have made. They have taken this old codger from caveman to computer guru. Well not quite...guru maybe but not a computer guru.
Thank You Gang for continuing to make it better. Keep it up and I might just renew (lol). — Larry Nuese (USA)

Your company is awesome
I noted in your last update email that you mentioned some people were wondering when the latest CLZ mobile update was coming. I just wanted to say that your company is awesome. Of all the applications I have (and I have many) your CLZ applications are updated on an incredibly regular basis. I have a great deal of admiration for the job you and all in your organization do. I can only imagine the amount of work that takes place in your organization.
With heartfelt thanks to you and your staff for a great product and your dedication to continuing to make it better and better! — Jacqui (Canada)

Excellent customer support
On behalf of my husband, Larry, and me; thank you both for all of the wonderful detailed instructions on us finally establishing an account for Larry's Comic Books Collection database; and for my Music Collection database. We both followed your licensing instructions, as well as downloading our respective Comic and Music databases on his PC and on my MAC.
Everything went smoothly. Now we both can continue encouraging each other to enter all of our collections!
Great product, we are very happy with it; particularly with the excellent customer support you have both provided to us! Cataloging our collections has also resulted in reorganized where and how we store the Comics and Records. Great product! — Barbara (USA)

When we ask for improvement, you guys make it happen.
I also just recently found that, you made some other changes in an earlier update like: Capitalizing after square brackets.
Multiple collections in one DB something i been looking for, for ages. I was very happy when I discovered it because I have submitted the suggestions to you several times.
After 20 years of dedicated user of your Games, Movie and Music Collectorz software, i love it more and more — Kim Jensen (Denmark)

v5: Multiple collections, automatic syncing of your own images, and: now a subscription app!

June 13th, 2019

It’s finally here: CLZ Books 5.0 for Android! With support for multiple collections, automatic syncing of your own images, plus a re-designed top bar and menu.

On top of that, (and the main reason why it took so long):

* Starting with v5, CLZ Books is now a subscription app!

Read on below to find out how that affects you (hint: it doesn’t!).

What’s new in CLZ Books 5.0 ?

CLZ Books is now a subscription app, costing $1.49/month

To allow us to keep delivering our CLZ online services (CLZ Cloud and CLZ Core) and our continuous updates to the app, the app has now become a subscription app. For new users, this subscription gives them access to the CLZ online services:

  • CLZ Core: for adding books by ISBN or by author and title
  • CLZ Cloud: for online backups and syncing between devices.

IMPORTANT: Of course, since you have purchased the app earlier, you have automatically received a life-time “Basic”-level subscription, which gives you access to your existing CLZ Core and CLZ Cloud services. You do not need to pay for a subscription!
In other words, the app now being a subscription app has no effect on you whatsoever!
If you still see any “unlock” problems with your app, please CONTACT US here and we’ll get it resolved ASAP.

Please note: We may introduce new “premium” CLZ services to the CLZ Books app later, which are not part of your free life-time “Basic” subscription. At that time, if you want to use the new services, you will be able to optionally upgrade to a “Premium” subscription.

Now supports and syncs multiple collections !

It is now possible to manage multiple “collections” within your app. The collections you create will be listed in the main menu, so you can easily switch between them.
Use the menu to add new collections, edit their names, change the order, etc…

Multiple collections now also sync through the CLZ Cloud, e.g. to/from the Book Connect cloud-based software or the Book Collector desktop software. So if you have created multiple collections on the desktop side, these will now finally be separated on the mobile app too!

Already have multiple collections in the CLZ Cloud?

If you already have multiple collections in the CLZ Cloud, here’s what to do to get your existing entries split up into multiple collections on your mobile app too:

1. Tap the menu top left
2. Tap “Sync with CLZ Cloud” and make sure you’re in sync.
3. Tap the menu top left again and tap “Maintenance”
4. Tap “Update all from CLZ Cloud”
5. Now use “Sync with CLZ Cloud” from the menu again.

Automatic cloud-syncing of your own “custom” images

Before v5, if you replaced the automatic Core front cover with your own image (e.g. from Camera Roll), it would not automatically sync to the CLZ Cloud. You had to “force” the upload by using Upload to CLZ Cloud in the Edit screen.

For version 5 we made this more automatic. We introduced a new toggle “Custom Image” in the Edit screen. This toggle will be automatically set when you replace the Core image. Once the Custom Image toggle is set, that cover will automatically sync to and from the CLZ Cloud.

Re-designed top-bar

  • The menu icon now includes the “CLZ Books” mark (bigger tap area)
  • The “Collection Status” filter button has been moved to the right

Re-designed main menu

  • The menu now clearly shows your Account and Subscription Status at the top. Tap either of those to manage them.
  • New “Maintenance” screen that now contains:
    • the “Clear Database” option
    • the “old Import from Book Collector” option
    • the new “Update from CLZ Cloud” option (only use when instructed by support staff)

How to update your CLZ Books app to version 5:

  • On your device, open the Play Store app.
  • Tap the menu button on the top left, then tap “My apps & games”.
  • Find the CLZ Books entry and tap “UPDATE” on the right.

[CLZ News] More improvements for the Connect cloud-based software

May 31st, 2019

Here’s the CLZ News for May 2019, as always brought to you by CLZ Alwin.

Judging from Facebook posts and support tickets, some users of the CLZ mobile apps are getting restless, asking us “when is there going to be an update for my CLZ app again?!?”… and understandably so. After all, the last updates were in December 2018… ouch!

As you know, we have been working on v5 updates for all apps. Which was a huge project by itself, but it has gotten bigger and bigger as we went along. Some parts of the project turned out to be more complex than they seemed at first. Next to that, more features got added to the v5 wish list.
I apologize for the long wait… but the wait will soon be over. We’re almost ready to release the first v5, which will be CLZ MUSIC. ETA within 2 weeks, maybe even next week!

So… with no Windows and Mac releases in May either, this turns out to be a fully cloud-based “Connect Only” newsletter! The topics today:

  • Connect: New Duplicate Finder tool
  • Connect / CLZ Cloud: Resizable columns in List View
  • Connect / CLZ Cloud: More import tools
  • Coming up for Connect and CLZ Cloud: multi-level folders!
