What's new in CLZ Books for Android?
It’s been a while since the last CLZ Books update, as our entire mobile team has been working on a big update of our CLZ Music app (the one for CDs and vinyl records).
But we’re back at it for the other CLZ mobile apps, with 3 new features in one go!
- a new “Duplicate Book” tool, for making a full copy an existing book in your database.
- a new “Clear Cloud” button in the Sync screen, for resetting your CLZ Cloud
- a new “Shake to Shuffle” feature, for selecting a random book
Duplicate Book tool
This is a new tool for making a full copy of an existing book in your app.
To do so, tap and hold on a book entry in your list to select it, tap the menu icon on the bottom right, then choose “Duplicate 1 Book”.
Tip: you can also duplicate multiple books in one go, just select some more before you use the command from the menu.
Clear CLZ Cloud button in Sync screen
There are situations where you might want to reset and clear your CLZ Cloud, so that you can upload a fresh copy of your database from the CLZ Books app TO the CLZ Cloud.
Previously, one had to log in to the CLZ Cloud site to do that, but we have now made that quite a bit easier. You can now clear your CLZ Cloud straight from the “Sync with CLZ Cloud” screen inside the app, using the new Clear CLZ Cloud button on the bottom left.
“Shake to Shuffle” – select a random book
“Shake to Shuffle” is back! Early adopters of the CLZ apps may remember this feature from the first version of the app. The feature was removed because of technical reasons a long time ago.
But we managed to implement this popular feature again for today’s update.
Shake your phone to select a random book in your database.
TIP: to select a random book for a specific author, genre, subject, etc.. just open that folder first, THEN shake.
Alternatively, use the Shuffle button in the top right of the book details page:
