Download alll your missed covers!

A new feature has been added to Comic Books Collector VE, download all your missed covers.

As you may have notice the back up option only works for the data and not the images, so if for some reason you completely loose your images even thought that you have a back up, the info will be there, but no covers.

There’s the option to download manually a cover at a time, but if you have a collection of thousands like most of the collectors, that can be a pain.

To solve this I added the option to “Download all missed covers”, this function will calculate all the missed covers from your covers folder and download them. Depending on speed and quantity this operation may take a while.

Currently this function is only available on the VE version of the app.

Tag that issue!

Another cool change is available now, the all issues list with drop down filter!

This option allow to easily see all the issues that fall into one of the main categories:

-Wish list

-Read

-Unread

That way you can track what you want to buy or read more quickly.

This options is available for both free and pay version.

But hey what’s the plus for Variant Edition?

If you have the new Variant Edition for the app you can tag individual issues (just like tagging titles) and use this tag to group individual issues, ideal to see all the issues related to a cross over event or a specific story arc, on a same place.

I’m using it for Death of the Family and Throne of Atlantis, and believe me is very helpful!

So download if you don’t have it, upgrade it if your on the regular version and enjoy if you’re a Variant Edition user!

Trend titles list

The Variant Edition of Comic Books Collector comes with a bunch of new exclusive features, the first to come is the Trend List.

With this option you can see what are the latest titles that the users are adding, so you can quickly add your new comics.

If you’re a user of the normal edition, please upgrade to Variant Edition so you can enjoy this new cool feature.

Back up my collection! Ver 1.3.1

One of the most asked features on emails by the users is the back up feature.

And now, after a very big break from the keyboard and finally back with updates, and they will come more ofter now!

This back up feature will save ALL your data to the SD card, and you can restore it back. But careful, when I say all your data is like all will be prelaced, so use it nice.

I hope it’s not to late for those wanting the change phones or reseting your current device.

Have fun and let me know!

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.

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.
