Thanks for making my Christmas everyone :) Keep the reviews & requests coming, and have a happy Lego filled New Year!
I loving it
Great App regardless, Thanks!!
A 'jump to' popup sounds interesting, I'll see what I can do!
@pjpp - I double-checked last night and the issue is definitely fixed in the next release. I'm planning on releasing it around the end of February, but this date is fluid and dependent upon how much time I can get to work on the app.
Whilst I'm here, is there any demand for 'in progress' builds? ie, ones with the latest functionality and bug fixes but which may not be as stable as official releases? Or would people rather wait until the end of a dev cycle and grab the release candidates / final builds?
If you want someone to test, we have an original (2011) Kindle Fire which runs gingerbread and the KFHD 8.9 which runs ICS. I'm going to send you an email on the support email as well.
I don't have a kindle myself but early reports are that it works fine.
I haven't really done a lot more with it at this point, but I grabbed it on the appstore just now and will update when I get home and play.
I have one request for an improvement. The posibility of downlaoding other users wanted lists. I often buy my brother lego for birthdays and christmas and having his wantedlist at hand in the local store would be a great use of the app on my behalf.
I can look at changing the app to allow other accounts be added 'read only' so you can view other people's sets without accidentally changing them - this will still require the password to be entered the first time though. Is there any demand for such a feature?
Alternatively, I could look at implementing read-only access to people on your Brickset friend's list who have made their sets viewable, but this would require a lot of work from Huw. If several people post or PM me asking for this functionality I'll see what I can do!
Almost forgot - the pricing issue dit mentioned is resolved and will be in the next release (rc coming soon).
It should install on top of any existing release without a problem, please give it a go and let me know of any problems! Either drop a comment here, send me a PM or mail me at [email protected]
Included you will find:
Bug fixes (including prices now display correctly for non-English locales - thanks for your help debugging this @dit!; and sets now retain their 'favourite' status - thanks @pjpp!).
Collectable Minifigures now have 'parts' images, courtesy of @WhiteFang (many thanks for permission to use them!). This should make trips to feel-up the CMFs a bit easier for everyone!
Totally reworked Set Details page, now looks much (much) better than before.
Screen layouts have been improved for Landscape orientation.
LEGO Set Description available for many sets.
Sets can be marked as 'gift'.
Performance tweaks (including much improved image downloading).
Can search on sets marked as 'built' & 'gift', as well as sets that have instructions.
I'd like to include them, but unfortunately Huw does not own copyright on the images so is unable to let me use them and I've been unable to get permission from the original source or find an alternate source.
As an example, the commercial "Unofficial Lego Minifigure Catalog" apps that tcleong mentioned uses their own photos.
Also, I wanted to put in a request for future updates: would it be possible to add an option for displaying the barcode on the set details page? This would help greatly when trying to find sets in certain stores.
All of series 3 except space villain
All of series 4 except sailor and kimono girl
All of series 6
All of series 7 except bunny suit guy
All of series 8 except diver
All of team GB except for judo fighter and tennis player
Glad you like the new layout on the Set Detail page, it's a huge improvement on what was there before.
1. From the main screen, go to menu | Settings and enable Advanced Options. Go back to the main screen, into Advanced and run 'Download Missing Thumbs'.
2. Go to your Android\data\uk.co.otissoft.mybrickset\files\Pictures\sm folder - there are probably images in here like 8683-4.jpg. Remove all the images from this folder.
Hopefully that'll fix your issue. If so, the root problem is that sets were renumbered at some point. I can write something to clean out 'old' images from this folder whenever the app starts.
I've made your barcode changes, please see the attached images. Selecting the barcode image on the set screen pops up the dialog with the barcodes for the set. Hopefully that's what you're looking for? I've checked and the codes do scan!
Also, that's exactly the type of thing I was looking for with the barcodes. Thanks for adding that!
I'll try and upload rc3 tomorrow so you can try out the new barcode functionality.
Changes from rc2 are:
'old' images are now automatically cleaned up, should save a bit of disk space and stop old images from showing (especially for CMFs).
barcodes can now be viewed graphically from the set details screen (see ^^^ for screenshots).
1.6 contains many new features, enhancements and bug fixes - I strongly urge everyone to update asap. lease let me know if you have any problems.
it would be nice if you can add price in euro and show only one currency.
i wish me too, to get a actually packet from all large pictures for offline use.
I retrieve prices directly from brickset. So how about it @Huw, any chance of getting Euro prices? :)
Filtering by currency will be in a future release.
And all fullsize images add up to several GB!!
