Movie Connect

Improved search behaviour

May 24th, 2024

In today’s update, we improved the behaviour after searching using the search box top right.
Previously, when you selected a movie from the “suggestions dropdown”, the software would take you to a separate full screen page showing the details of that movie. This behaviour was a bit annoying as it would take you away from the main screen and you needed to click “Back” on the top left to get back to it. Also, the main screen would then show you the full collection again and would be scrolled back at the top again. Meh..

v9.1.2: Fixed a couple of crashes

May 1st, 2024

Fixed

  • The app could crash on startup
  • The app could crash in certain situations when showing details


Just over two months ago, we released a huge v9.0 upgrade for the CLZ Movies app. But today, we’re back already, with a v9.1 update with two improvements related to cover images, a nice new setting for further customizing your app and finally, an improvement to the barcode scanner.

  • Add cover images for “Unrecognized Barcodes”
  • Update from Core now also let you REPLACE cover images
  • New “Hide Seen It” setting
  • Faster barcode scanner

A big update for your Movie Connect web-based software today, which is all about pick list fields.

Pick list fields (and the pick lists behind them) are an important part of your movie database. These are the fields in the Edit screen that let you pick from a list of possible values, with that list being fully configurable by you the user.
Examples of pick list fields are Format, Series, Owner, Genres and Tags (both multi value pick list fields), but also Studio and Distributor.

Now, a lot of the questions we usually get about Movie Connect are related to pick list fields and can usually be answered with:

“Just use the Manage Pick Lists screen”

Renaming Formats, Merging duplicate Locations, fixing typos in actor names, etc… it is all done in the Manage Pick Lists (MPL) screen. An important and powerful screen, but… not so easy to find if you don’t know where to look or don’t even know what to look for.

With today’s Connect update, we are making this a lot easier: We have improved the Manage Pick Lists screen itself AND made it more accessible / discoverable:

In short:

  • Improved Manage Pick Lists (MPL) screen
  • Easy access to the MPL screen right from the folder panel
  • Refreshed Edit Movie screen, with better pick list fields and direct MPL access

v9.0.2: Fixed a crash on startup

February 8th, 2024

Fixed:

  • The app would crash on startup for some users


It has been a while since we had the chance to sit down and work on the CLZ Movies app for a longer stretch. That is, doing improvements that are specific to movies and DVD/Blu-ray/4K releases. In fact, the project took much longer than anticipated, as new ideas for improvements kept popping while we worked on it. And we decided to just let that happen and create the best version of the app that we could think of right now.

Today, we can finally show you this huge v9.0 update for your CLZ Movies mobile app. Here’s what’s new:

  • Improved Add Movies / Add by Title screen
  • Collection tabs: easily switch between collections using tabs at the bottom
  • New: tap an actor name in details to show all your movies with that actor
  • Better screens for reporting “unrecognized barcodes” and adding those movies anyway
  • When adding Box Sets, the app now automatically asks “Singly Entry or Multiple Entries?”
  • Many new icons for digital and streaming formats

Complete re-design of Edit Multiple feature

October 30th, 2023

The Edit Multiple feature is an efficient tool for making changes to multiple (or all) of your database entries in one go. It has been part of the Connect web-based software for many years (since May 2015!). For the CLZ mobile apps, this “batch editing” ability was introduced much later, in July 2020.
However, when we did that, we were forced to completely re-design the feature’s user interface, to make it work well on the small phone screen. And a strange thing happened: the UI/UX we ended up with, turned out be much better than the original Edit Multiple design of the Connect web-based software and the Collector desktop software 🙂

So today, we are bringing that new Edit Multiple setup to the Connect web-based software!
