More on the updated TV show layout

So, yesterday I gave you an early look at some upcoming changes for the TV show details view. Yesterday it was only working on phones, but I’ve spent some time today making it for tablets as well, so without further ado here’s a very early look at the upcoming tablet interface for TV show details (press to enlarge):

You’ll notice that the panel on the left now shows a description of the actual TV show. Mizuu has actually stored this information on your device all along, but has never really used it, so this is pretty neat. Another thing you’ll note is that you browse your episodes as photos now. This is much easier and will make it a lot easier for you to find the episode you’re looking for. Also, Mizuu will separate the episodes into pages of seasons, so you can easily swipe between seasons.

I made a quick video to show you how it works on both the phone and tablet. Again, this is very early stuff and a lot will happen to it. I’m always interested to hear what you think, so don’t feel free to leave comments.

    • That’s really hard to say. I’ve still got a lot to do. Aiming for some time in July, but I’ll be publishing a smaller update first to add support for Jelly Bean devices some time mid-July.

  2. All of the changes you have posted look great! I’m like the guy who posted though: we are all anxious to get our hands on the new changes. When you say you will hopefully push out a version mid July for Jellybean what changes are necessary to support that version?

    • It’ll contain whatever I’ve managed to finish, and 1.8 will contain the rest. I’d planned to release everything in 1.8, but I unfortunately I don’t know much about Google’s releases until they announce them 🙂

      • Cool. I’d settle for the delete episode functionality …or maybe that and the network functionality…. There is so much to want!!! I plan to use your program with my upcoming tablet purchase exclusively to watch TV shows.

        • It’s already capable of deleting single episodes, seasons and entire shows 🙂 Network support is the last thing that I’m going to add because I need it to work with everything else. It’s easiest to do it this way.

          • Do you mean the version I have now or the version you are working on? Because I don’t see any way of deleting on mine.

        • You can only delete a single episode at a time in the current version. The stuff I mentioned is working in the dev version 🙂

  3. Two quick things (1) Did you ever consider joining Google+ so people can respond to you there? Speaking for myself, it is quicker for me to see a post from you and comment or +1 it and I should think it’d be easier on you. (2) Is it possible to get the high res version of the movie posters under the HD trailers section?

    • Oh yeah, I’ll have to debug that.
