May 14th, 2018

March 15th, 2018

We’ve added new fields to sort on to change the order in which your albums are displayed in your list. Your album list will adapt to sort and show the field you’re sorting on. On top of that we’ve redesigned the Select Sort Order screen to make it more clear what you’re choosing.

All available sort fields:

  • Artist, then Year
  • Artist, then Title
  • Album Title
  • Release Date
  • Nr. of Tracks (New!)
  • Length (New!)
  • Order of Entry (New!)
  • My Rating (New!)
  • Purchase Date (New!)
  • Purchase Price (New!)
  • Current Value (New!)
  • Quantity (New!)
  • Index

All fields can be sorted either ascending or descending. Tap the field you wish to sort on, then tap “Apply” to confirm.

v4.9.3: New: Single Search Box for your Add Albums screen

February 28th, 2018

What’s new in the Add Albums screen?

  • Single Search Box: Just one box for search (e.g. like Google or Amazon). No more separate Artist and Title boxes. Just enter (part of) the artist’s name and (part of) the title and you will get the best matching results. (see the screen shot below with “metallica justice” results”)

Fixed:

  • The app did not open the details page when a search result was selected in the quick search box while the [All Albums] folder was active in phone mode.

Faster and better results when adding albums by Artist/Title

February 13th, 2018

Our web-team has been working on this for a long time, but it is now LIVE: a new search engine for Artist/Title searches in our Core online music database and Discogs. An engine that is both better and much, much faster!

And the good news is: these are all “server-side” changes, which means you don’t need to update your Music Collector software, CLZ Music app or Music Connect web-app. Everyone can now instantly enjoy the benefits, no matter which version of the software you have :-).

November 22nd, 2017

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