I need your feedback again :-)

Just had 30 minutes of spare time, so decided to attempt to do a re-design of the TV show episodes browser. I’m not quite happy with the one that’s currently in the beta version, and a re-design should be fairly easy to do.

What do you think? It’s just a quick mock-up to give you an idea of it.

A great thing about this design is that it’s easy to use and it works on all kinds of devices – phones, tablets and TV’s.

  2. The seasons tab is taking up a lot of real estate.

    • It is. A bit too much, but it was just a quick mock-up.

  3. What if it were Seasons/Episodes were on the same tab. When you click touch on “Season/Episodes” tab all your season pop up so you can switch.

    • I don’t think that works very well. There’s a reason why apps like Gmail don’t use that approach 🙂

  5. Or a scroll from left to right.
    [Season 1][ Season2][Season3][Season 4][Season 5] place it where the episodes tab is on top. Then when you click touch on the season your episodes show up on the bottom.

    • Scrolling is pretty much off the table as well. It makes it unneccessarily hard to go from the first season to the last season, if you’ve got many seasons of a show. Also, it doesn’t work on TV’s or other devices without a touchscreen.

          • Which one did you get? I have the revue and it crashes when I put my external hard drive on it.

  6. Much better! But please make the “function” key work again, so i at least can remove a episode after i have viewed it, or better delete the actual file. So i know this is not the place 🙂 but a really miss the feature…

    • It’s coming! It’s just missing in the beta because I’m re-writing the stuff related to TV shows 🙂

  7. I like it. Easier to browse you episode and better use of the screen I think

  8. I really like it. Well the seasons “tab” could be a little smaller but everything else is looking great. Would really like to see this in future updates.

    Thank you so much for all your hard work!

  9. But where is the show title? And the episode numbers would look better above the episode titles. In my opinion of course.

    Reply
    • Yes Episode and session numbers are very useful!

  10. I like it. This is more functional and also less confusing to those who are new to android and also those who have been using android for awhile since Google uses a similar layout for Gmail. I like it. I hope you’re planning to keep the intro page with the full background image and cover art then slide over to this view! Other than that it looks great as far as layout is concerned.

  12. Is it possible just show the Session Number 1,2,3… and not Session 1, session 2,… it will be possible to make more space to make the episodesection much bigger and the epidosedetails also.
    If Mizuu save the last Session- and Episodeposition is selected it will be easyer for all. is this possible?

    Reply
  13. I think it might be nice to have the name of the series (and the cover image?) heading the Season Column.
    Maybe also sort Seasons in descending order?
    Anyways, huge improvement – I like it!

  14. too much wasted space with no relevant info, why a season tab?? I don’t like it

    Reply
  15. I prefer the actual interface for the tv shows. It’s true that it would be more confortable for tablets, but I use mizuu on a tv and it wouldn’t be the best 🙁
    If you are going to make some changes to the layout, is it possible to give us the choice between the old and new interface in the settings?
    It would be nice something like that for the movie section too, I preferred the old layout 🙁

    • This would actually be easier to use on a TV, which is one of the reasons why I’m making it.

  16. I much prefer the current layout because you can see more episodes at one time and it just looks more appealing because of all the different thumbnails. What if you got the layout here and replaced the seasons and episodes columns with episode thumbnails like what it is at the moment, and have season tabs at the top. Basically take the current layout, get rid of the ‘Show details’ and ‘episodes’ tabs at the very top, and put the details in on the left or right hand side that is always there no matter what season you are on.
