v5.5: Re-designed “Select Folder Field” screen and faster Update from Core

June 11th, 2020

Today’s version 5.5 brings two improvements to your CLZ Books app:

  • A redesigned Select Folder Field screen
  • A much faster Update from Core feature

Redesigned Select Folder Field screen

Through the years, the number of available folder fields has grown enormously, making the Select Folder Field screen a bit “unwieldy”. We decided to come up with a better solution.

This update includes a redesigned Select Folder Field screen, with all folder options nicely grouped under sensible headers, and the most popular options (Author, Publisher, Location) instantly accessible at the top.

Faster Update from Core

On large collections the old Update from Core feature was quite slow, as it updated your books one by one, that is doing separate requests to our server for each and every game.

So for this update, we also complete rewrote the Update from Core feature to do the updates in batches of 100 books at a time, making it much much faster!

Remember: Update From Core can be used to update your local book entries with possible extra data from our Core online book database. To use this feature, tap and hold on a book in your list to select it, tap more to select more, then tap the menu icon on the bottom right and choose Update from Core.

Fixed:

  • Field Defaults screen could crash
  • Edit Screen: some fields would sort bad while editing them
  • Add from Core: when adding a book that is already in on your wish list, it will now offer to change its status to ‘In Collection’
  • When scanning barcodes the “beep” sound would only sound on the first scan
  • Search on own collection could be forgotten during scrolling/browsing your collection
