Software and app updates related to 'sniper button'

We’re nearing the end of the month, so let’s go over the CLZ News for May 2024.

This month, we released the fifth and final v9 mobile app: CLZ Music 9.0. In the meantime, CLZ Comics already saw its 9.2 release, with v9.3 coming up soon!

For your computer, the web-based software is getting lots of attention. Two feature updates for Comic Connect, and a big structural improvement to the search features for all Connect flavors.

Finally, there’s still a lot of work going on for our Core projects for movies and games, still checking and replacing thousands of cover images each week. I hope the gamers and movie fans among you are already enjoying the fruits of our labor.

v9.0.3: Several fixes

January 3rd, 2024


  • A crash could occur while updating values from CovrPrice
  • A crash could occur while updating comics with key information
  • While typing in the search box above the folder panel, letters could disappear
  • Tablet: when selecting a series, the app would scroll that series to the middle of the folder panel
  • “Sniper” button didn’t show if sort order had never been changed in the app
  • Update from Core did not download the back cover if available

Here it is, the 3rd and final “v9 feature hilite” email. Today’s email is about two new tools we added for quickly finding a specific issue in your database:

  • Issue Search: use the search box top right to search for a specific issue, e.g. “amazing 362”
  • Jump to Issue button (aka, the “sniper” button”): tap, enter issue number, bam you’re there.

BTW: if you missed them, you can still read the first two v9 feature hilite emails on our CLZ blog:
