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 :-).

v4.5.5: Further improvements to the Add Albums screen

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:

  • Slightly smaller font for the album title, so that longer titles fit better.

Fixes in this update:

  • Crash when adding an artist to an album when the add manually screen was opened by tapping the “Not Found?”-cell in one of the the add auto screens.
  • After changing the sort order the list could sometimes scroll to a random position.
  • Small CLZ Cloud Sync tweaks.
