In the last post I told you that I’m going to actively post nightly builds. I also told you that I’m going to reserve at least one hour each day for Mizuu. Happy to say that I’ve been keeping both promises. It’ll be some time before the next nightly build is posted, though. I’ve been pretty sick of the inconsistency of the user interface between tablets and phones, so I’ve finally decided to do something about that.
The movie details screen will be the first to change. The new style will be a backdrop image at the top (or left side if you’re in landscape mode), and then a set of three tabs at the bottom (or right side) with the movie overview as well as easier access to actors and reviews. It took some time for me to get the design working and I had a very strange bug that made the application crash pretty much all the time, but I’ve sorted that now and I think the design looks pretty sweet. Also, it’ll work great on all kinds of devices.
I’ve only got the “Actors” tab working as of now, but I’ll hopefully have a complete thing working next week. I’ve also been working on ways to improve the Web videos part of the app, and TV shows will get a similar make-over.
Feel free to let me know what you think.
