What's new in CLZ Movies? (page 4)


CLZ Movies Android: Unrecognized Barcode screen

A v4.3.12 update for your CLZ Movies app is now available.

This update introduces an easier way to deal with “Unrecognized Barcodes”.
A new screen that not only helps you to add the movie to your app anyway, but also helps your fellow CLZ Movies users by instantly adding the missing barcode to the CLZ Core online movie database.

Easily add movies that come up as “Unrecognized Barcode”

  • In the Add Movies screen when a barcode is not recognized, a new “Unrecognized Barcode” screen will appear.
  • In this screen:
    1. Just find your movie by title (Search-As-You-Type is also active here!)
    2. Select the format (DVD, Blu-Ray, etc..)
    3. Then click Add Movie.
  • This will:
    1. Add the movie to YOUR database with full movie details, your barcode and the selected format.
    2. Instantly add the barcode to OUR Core online movie database, connected to the movie you selected.

Enjoy!
