January 8th, 2018

v4.5.5: Further improvements to the Add Movies screen

November 22nd, 2017

In today’s update for the CLZ Movies app, we have made further tweaks to the Add screen, to make it clearer than previous versions:

    • Slightly smaller font for the movie title, so that longer titles fit better.
    • Search as you type now respects tv-series only/adult filters.

Fixes in this update:

  • After changing the sort order the list could sometimes scroll to a random position.
  • Small CLZ Cloud sync tweaks.
  • After restarting the app an empty details template could sometimes show.
  • After restarting the app it would sometimes repeatedly scroll to the last added movie.
  • After manually typing a barcode in the add by barcode screen you weren’t able to search another one.
