v4.12.1: New: Automatically add multi-movie box-sets

July 19th, 2018

During 2017, our content managers worked for months to enhance our Core online movie database with movie list information for thousands of multi-movie box sets.

As of today, CLZ Movies can use this new Core data: Just use the enhanced Add Movies screen to find a box set, either by title or by barcode, and our Core “knows” which movies are in the box.

See it in action:

Find and add box sets by barcode

Scan a box-set barcode and Core will show you which movies it contains. Click Add to Collection at the bottom right and all contained movies will be added to your database, automatically linked by a box set entry.

Find and add box sets by title

Alternatively, use the Title tab and enable the new Box Set search to find box sets by their title.

Note: the new Movies, TV Series and Box Sets switches now let you search each of these three Core section separately OR combined.
AND: The switches also operate on the Search-As-You-Type suggestions, for even quicker searching and adding!

New box set panel on movie details page, with movie list!

A nice new box set panel at the top of the movie details for each of the contained movies. Now showing the list of the contained movies, in the correct order, AND with clickable links to go straight to the other movies in the set!

Change the order of movies in a box set

At the bottom of the list of movies you will find a link to “change order of movies…” to modify the order in which the movies are displayed in the details page.

CLZ Movies (iOS)

v4.11: More editable fields!

June 14th, 2018

By popular demand, we have added 10 more editable fields to CLZ Movies. Two completely new fields (Is TV Series and Box Set) and 8 fields that were already available as automatic Core fields but are now fully editable:

Completely New Fields:

  • Is TV Series (Yes/No). For your entries, indicate whether these are movies or TV series. Use Is TV Series folders to split them in the main list. This is a new field. Default values for your entries have been set using our Core central database, but you may want to run though your list to check and correct as needed.
  • Box Set. Enter a box set title in your movies to make them part of a box set. You can see the box set information at the top of the details panel for each of the movies inside that box set. Also available as a folder option.

Fields that are now fully editable:

  • Release Date. Previous only available as Release Year, this is now a full date field.
  • Runtime. Previously set automatically, now fully editable.
  • IMDb Number. Previously set automatically, now fully editable.
  • IMDb Rating. Previously set automatically, now fully editable.
  • Audience Rating. Previously set automatically, now fully editable. Also available as a folder option.
  • Region. Previously set automatically, now fully editable. Allows multiple values. Also available as a folder option.
  • Studio. Previously set automatically, now fully editable. Allows multiple values. Also available as a folder option.
  • Distributor. Previously set automatically, now fully editable. Also available as a folder option.

But wait, that’s not all: All the above fields now also sync to and from the CLZ Cloud!

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 Movies 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 Movies app only communicates with those secure entry points.

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

Fixed:

  • Last update made some settings disappear in the settings screen. They are back now.
  • Added bottom margin to the add auto screen on iPhone X to make the add button more reachable
  • The sync screen wasn’t logging local deletes.

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

May 9th, 2018

New for the Add Movies screen:

  • Add button is now bigger and easier to spot (some new users missed the little round “+”).
  • Add button now “remembers” your collection vs. wish list selection. No need to pick from the Collection/Wish List popup menu every time you add anymore.

Fixed:

  • Details view: In-template editing of seen-it status was broken.
  • Adding a movie 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.

    March 6th, 2017

    This update introduces an easier way to deal with “Unrecognized Barcodes”.

    Easily add movies that come up as “Unrecognized Barcode”

    • In the Add Movies screen when a barcode is not recognized, a new “Unrecognized Barcode” screen will appear.

      1. Add the movie to YOUR database with full movie details, your barcode and the selected format.
      2. Instantly add the barcode to OUR Core online movie database, connected to the movie you selected. Which means that the next users who searches for the same barcode, will instantly get a result 🙂

    • On your device, open the App Store app.
