Software and app updates released in 2022

CLZ Comics (Android)

v7.9 Filter your Series list by Completed status

July 1st, 2022

Another nice update for your CLZ Comics app, with 2 new features that were requested by you all:

  • Filter your Series list by “Completed” status
  • New Setting for Series Images: Earliest Issue or Latest Issue

Filter your Series list by “Completed” status

This has been a recurring request since we introduced the ability to mark series as “Completed”. So we made it happen.
Just tap the checklist icon at the top and choose “Show completed” to only show all series that have been marked as Completed.

Note that the Series Completed flag is a manual flag. You decide if a series is completed or not. You can either set that flag in the Edit Series screen (e.g. from Manage Pick Lists) or just select multiple series in the series list, then choose “Mark as Completed” from the Action button menu.

New Setting for Series Images: Earliest Issue or Latest Issue

In your series list, the app has always shown the cover image of the latest issue for that series that you own. But some users indicated that they would prefer it to use the first or earliest issue of the series, because in most cases that is a more recognizable issue.

So we made it into a setting!

Other changes:

Next to the features above, we also added 2 other things, 1 requested (or demanded) by Apple, and 1 requested by the CLZ support guys and gal 🙂

  • Edit Series screen: modify the CLZ Series ID:
    This is sometimes necessary when your series entry is linked to the wrong Core Series. In general: only do this when instructed by CLZ support staff.

  • New “Delete my CLZ Account” option under Settings (iOS only):
    A new requirement by Apple, a way to to delete your account from the app itself. If you value your app, subscription and your cloud data, do NOT press this button!!! 🙂

Fixed for iOS:

  • New in the Settings screen, as required by Apple: a “Delete my CLZ Account” button.
  • Pull List: My Series now only works on your currently selected collection, instead of all collections
  • Small fixes to the most valuable comics statistic

Fixed for Android:

  • After tapping on a quick search series result, the keyboard wouldn’t automatically hide
  • Small fixes to the most valuable comics statistic

CLZ Comics (iOS)

v7.6.2: Bug fixes for the Add Screen and template

April 26th, 2022

Today, two fixes for the new Add Comics screen and small fix for the details panel on iPad:

  • Slow opening of issue list for a series
    Opening a series to go to its issue list could cause the app to “freeze” for a while, depending on the number of issues in the series AND the number of comics in your database.

    Please note that this was not related to the loading of the large images. Instead, it was just a stupid bug that was introduced during the rewrite of this screen, related to the “in collection highlighting”.

    You will find that all series now open instantly, even with the large images 🙂

  • Pull List showed all issues of a series
    When opening a series on the pull list, it incorrectly showed all issues for the series, where as it should of course show recent and future issues only.

  • Comic details on iPad: visibility of backdrop
    A small fix/tweak for the comic details panel on iPad, to make the backdrop more visible

v7.6 Bigger cover images in Add Comics screen

April 17th, 2022

For this update, the main goal was to make the cover images in the Add Comics screen bigger, to make it easier to find the issue or variant that you own.

However, while working on that, we ran into many other things that could be improved, so we figured why not? So in the end, it turned out be a serious overhaul of the Add Comics screen 🙂

Here’s an overview of all the improvements:

  • Bigger cover images in the Issue List
  • The Issue List for a series now opens in a separate page
  • Preview Page now also shows a bigger cover image
  • New look or series search results and series search “suggestions box”
  • Close the Add Comics screen with “X” top left, no more “double back button” confusion
