v.4.5.8: Added loan fields to the CLZ Cloud sync

August 29th, 2017

This update converts your database

In order for this update to work, your database has to be converted once. This happens automatically after starting the app for the first time after updating and can take a couple of minutes depending on the size of your database (amount of books) and the speed of your iPhone or iPad. This could take a couple of minutes on slower devices or with very large databases (5000 or more books).

New:

  • CLZ Cloud syncing: Added loan fields to the sync.
  • Edit Book: Autocorrect now works on the plot and notes fields.
  • New folder option: You can now group your books by reading year. To do this, tap the menu button top right, then “Folders”, then tap “Reading Year”.

Coming up:

  • A loan manager to loan and return books.

November 16th, 2016

A huge v4.3 update for your CLZ Books mobile app for iOS is now available.

In this update, we completely re-designed the Add Book screen, to make it clearer, easier-to-use and to help you add books more efficiently.

New: Re-designed Add Books screen

  • Switch between By Author/Title and By ISBN modes using tabs at the top
    (Add Manually is now a separate screen, under Tools menu)
  • All panels are now resizable (list, details, camera)
  • Add button is now at bottom right (blue circle with “+” icon)
  • Adding By ISBN:
    • Camera scanner is now integrated in Add screen, not a separate screen
    • Tap the keyboard icon in the camera panel to enter an ISBN manually
    • Delete ISBN from queue by swiping from right to left

New: Easily add books that come up as “Unrecognized ISBN”:

  • When an ISBN is not recognized, a new “Unrecognized ISBN” screen will appear.
  • In this screen, just type the Author and the Title, then click Add Book.
  • This will:
    1. Instantly add the ISBN/Author/Title entry to our Core online book database.
    2. Add the book to your own database with ISBN, Author and Title filled in AND linked to the new Core entry.

In other words, this new screen not only helps you in adding unrecognized books, but it also helps your fellow CLZ Books users by adding the missing ISBN to the CLZ Core.
