v4.14.1: New for iPad layout: Resizable panels

December 7th, 2018

A useful update of your app today, that is, if you are using the app on an iPad:

All panels in the main screen (folders, list and details) are now resizable using draggable separators between the panels, so that you can customize the layout to your own liking.

v4.13.1: Redesigned app icon

November 16th, 2018

New: Redesigned app icon

We designed new icons that give new users a better indication of what the app actually does (as opposed to just a different color CLZ logo), but still obviously belong together, when shown together.

New: More Field Defaults

The Field Defaults screen now lets you set default values for the Completeness, Has Box and Has Manual fields.


  • Platform list was outdated when Add screen is opened for the first time.

v4.11.1: Secure HTTPS connections

August 26th, 2018

Secure HTTPS connections, for your security and privacy

As indicated in our recent GDPR email, we are updating our software and services, to be more secure and to better protect your privacy.

Starting with version 4.11, CLZ Games now uses secure HTTPS connections for all communications with our servers:

  • for logging in with your username and password
  • for syncing your data with CLZ Cloud
  • for sending your searches to Core.

To make this possible, we have created new secure “entry points” on our servers, that are only allowing secure HTTPS connections. The new CLZ Games app only communicates with those secure entry points.

For your privacy and security, we strongly recommend updating your app to v4.11.


  • The buttons to switch folders, sorting and view options have been moved to more logical places to make them more accessible.
  • The skins and templates options have been moved to the settings screen.
  • The selection mode button has been removed, just tap and hold on an item to start selecting items.

v4.10.2: Bigger and easier to spot Add button!

May 9th, 2018

  • Adding a game would clear the collection status filter in the main screen.
  • The sorting option screen would sometimes not fully show the chosen sort option when opened.
  • iPad: Main screen: the details view did not refresh after changing the details template.
  • iPad: Main screen: the ‘edit my rating’ pop up was rotated when in landscape mode.
