The launch of version 2.0 has been crazy! So many new users and lots of great feedback.
Having said that, I’d like to address a few things that people have mentioned.
Upgrading removes all previous data
If you’re upgrading from version 22.214.171.124 to version 2.0, which thousands of people will be doing, the movie and TV show libraries will be cleared. I do realize that it isn’t exactly a smooth upgrading process, but it’s something that I decided to do because it’ll provide the best user experience. If I were to upgrade the movie and TV show databases to the new version, you’d be missing a lot of data that the new version is capable of fetching and displaying – i.e. your experience would be mediocre. By forcing everyone to update their libraries once again, you’ll get a much better experience because all your movies and TV shows will have more data to be displayed.
Claim: Broken widgets on Android 4.0
A few people have posted 1-star reviews on Google Play (thanks for those…), describing that the update apparently broke widgets on Android 4.0. I say “apparently” because I can’t reproduce the issues. I’ve tested Mizuu on Android 3.2, 4.0, 4.1 and 4.2 and it’s working just fine. If you’re experienceing issues with the widgets, please let me know as I’d like to reproduce it myself and fix it.
Update: As pointed out in the comments, I’ve replaced all the widgets, so any added widgets from version 126.96.36.199 won’t work and will have to be removed. The new ones work.
Update 2: It might also be caused by high numbers of movies, that are exhausting the launcher’s memory. Will try to reduce the memory usage.
Various other bugs
First of all, thanks for the bug / crash reports. I read each and every one of them, and I’ll try to fix all the issues shortly. I’ll be waiting a few days in order to get the most bug reports, and then fix them.
I’ll be aiming at updating Mizuu with fairly large updates each month. I’ll keep on posting on the blog with previews of what’s to come and when to expect it. The next (minor) update will be out next week, and will mainly feature bug fixes and other minor improvements. The first of the more significant updates will be focused mainly on performance improvements. After that, I’ll start adding new features.
