v4.5.13: Further improvements to the Add Comics screen

November 8th, 2017

In today’s update for the CLZ Comics app, we have made further tweaks to the Add screen, to make it clearer and (hopefully) more stable than previous versions:

  • Slightly smaller font for the series name, so that longer titles fit better.
  • Clearer result entries for Add By Barcode searches, especially in cases of multiple results.
  • Color high-lighting: Comics already ‘on wish list’ now have an orange title, comics already “in collection” show up with a blue title.
  • Improved scroll behaviour.


Fixes in this update:

  • Some covers (Preview art) weren’t showing in the main screen thumbnail view
  • Series have/want header in main list was cut off in certain situations
  • Full screen cover scroller on iPhone/iPod devices was not properly updating its title bar
