I’ve just published an updated beta version for the paid users, and I thought I’d create a blog post to go along with it and talk about a few other things. Let’s start with the latter.
Free version is temporarily unavailable
As some of you have noticed, the free version of Mizuu is currently not available on Google Play. I decided that the issues with movie identification were pretty critical and that rendered the user experience sub-par. Sadly, I haven’t had the time to bring on a fixed version, so that’s why it’s unavailable. It’ll be available again when the next version gets released.
Automatic crash reports
Experiencing crashes is annoying and having to report them is even more annoying. I’ve decided to include automatic crash reports with the next version of Mizuu. This basically means that you won’t have to do anything. If the application crashes, I’ll know almost immediately and in most cases I’ll have sufficient information to understand and fix the issue. If you’re worried about your personal data – please don’t. No personal data is submitted and the crash reports are solely used for fixing issues.
You’ll still have the option to manually enter a note when experiencing a crash and I highly encourage you to do so, if you think the crash is complicated.
New beta version
Paid users will be able to update to a newer beta version in a few hours, if they’ve joined the beta program. This update brings quite a few things, but I’ll leave you with a few highlights:
- Partially implemented custom movie covers for network files
- Improved movie filename recognition (TV shows are next)
- Greatly improved performance of various areas
I’d love to hear what you think of the improved filename recognition.
Next release version
The next release update will be out in roughly two weeks. I’ve got a lot on my plate at the moment, including an exam about Android development at university next week, but I think I’ll manage.
