Music Connect

Add Albums is now a pop-up screen

April 13th, 2018

A small user interface tweak today:
The Add Albums screen is now a pop-up screen that lays over your album list.
(previously it was a separate full screen page)

Looks cooler, feels more “snappy” and while adding albums, you can actually see the new additions appear in your music list in the background!

v4.5.5: Further improvements to the Add Albums screen

November 22nd, 2017

In today’s update for the CLZ Music app, we have made further tweaks to the Add Albums from CLZ Core screen, to make it clearer than previous versions:

  • Color high-lighting: Albums already ‘on wish list’ now have an orange title, albums already “in collection” show up with a blue title.
  • Slightly smaller font for the album title, so that longer titles fit better.

Fixes in this update:

  • Crash when adding an artist to an album when the add manually screen was opened by tapping the “Not Found?”-cell in one of the the add auto screens.
  • After changing the sort order the list could sometimes scroll to a random position.
  • Small CLZ Cloud Sync tweaks.
  • After restarting the app it would sometimes repeatedly scroll to the last added album.
  • After manually typing a barcode in the add by barcode screen you weren’t able to search another one.

  • Improved scroll behaviour.

Fixes in this update:

  • Full screen cover scroller on iPhone/iPod devices was not properly updating its title bar
