Tag that title

For version 1.2.5 I finally added the tag feature. I was planning this option from beggining, at least I was planning to use the favorite option. So at first you could mark your favorite titles, but what use was for that, none until now.

A drop down menu on the main list was included, that will allow you to select between your complete collection, your favorite ones, or any of the tags added.

And on the title main info screen you will be able to add or delete any tag you want, let’s say you want to separete all your Batman titles or the New 52 ones, this is the way to do it now!

Hope you enjoy this new option, I’m doing it, and please send me any comments about it.

Version 1.2.5

- New Tag option included to separate titles.
- Issue number added to next to read option.

First 1,000 Downloads

Today the Comic Books Collector app reaches the first 1000 downloads on the Play Store. It has been two months since the first version was release, and still with a long way to go, and after passing with a lot of bugs, we can tell that we have the most stable version up to now.

There are still a lot of ideas on the air about new features, and a lot of feedback (positive and negative), with sugestions on how to improve it.

I hope that the next 1000 downloads come a lot faster.

Hey! For an app with a very specific function for a very specific public, I think we’re doing good!

Thanks for the support and keep collecting!

- Bug not updating titles full list fixed.

Finally! Export List

When I released this app for the first time, the very first suggestion from the users was to add the feature to export the list of the collection to a file that was viewable on the computer, World, Excel or PDF.

After a couple of releases and many unhappy users uninstalling the app due the lack of this feature, the time for the options had come.

I added on the 1.2.1 version of the app the option to export either all the issues on your collection or the issues from a specific title from the collection. The list is exported on a CSV file that is viewable on Excel, and can be from there manipulated or exported as any format the user wants.

Besides, once the file is created the user is prompted to send it on email or other form of file sharing that the android device has.

Hope this feature makes a lot of user happy and choose to stay with the app, because it will continue to improve and become better and better.
