I have been trying out the new version of the apk and its very very nice. I do like the old version and as I have customised it for my needs it makes its great to use.

I will be checking out your new version from time to time to see how your getting on with it. what I like so far:

Pros

- Progress Bar On Startup (Maybe add a percentage% as well??)
- The font (what size type is this?)
- Having all movie info on on list/page rather than tabs.
- Movie Poster zoom feature.
- Being able to select a name from the cast list, media type and other categories direct from the list view or the movie information page.

Cons

- The movie thumbnail at top of page in the movie info page.
I think this would be better if it was a smaller size image of the movie poster with the title, and media information to the right hand side of it a bit similar to the old version as it is presented better this way (more neat looking). This with the movie details presented on one the one page and no tabs would be very compact.

- Movie Poster - It is very nice having it full screen but if the original image is of a certain smaller size (example 200W 317H this size I use for my catalogue images) it makes the image look low quality, so maybe have it auto size the image or have user settings that allow the user to choose a set image size (something in the center of the screen at a decent size (just a little bigger than the movie details movi poster size would be fine)


- Movie info page - The new one page with no tabs is a very good idea but maybe an option in the settings to allow the user to customise the order of the information on this page would be of an advantage.

Just a few thoughts there LOL!

what are you using to create this new version of the app? I am not as near experienced as yourself on programming but I like to do a little modification from time to time is its straight forward to do, thats why I love having been able to customise your older version as it waa fun to do and actually works for me lol! But i love the modern look the new one has and would love to customise or carrie that over to my little modded one. Keep it up and I will look forward to future releases. wink

I'm glad you are trying new version and you like it (well, for most of the parts wink)

There was a bug with large catalogs (over 21 MB) where progress bar was reset to zero. It's fixed and will be available with new version. I don't think there is a need for percentage as this was actually slowing down import. And speed is most important with import.

The font (what size type is this?)

I'm using RobotoCondensed-Regular and RobotoCondensed-Bold fonts and size is android:attr/textAppearanceMedium, which is 18sp.

Actually you could do it with old version as well. Just these fields were not underlined, so it wasn't so obvious.

I actually did it this way because of tablets. This way it looks better. But maybe I will introduce themes in far, far future. smile

OK, added it to wish list https://github.com/elman22/pocket-amc-reader/issues/18

For this version you should use Android Studio. It's actually much better than old ADT. So first download Android Studio and then check out sources from Github. Since you plan on making some changes, I would recommend to fork it on Github (https://help.github.com/articles/fork-a-repo/) and work on that. Or you can just download zip and play with it locally smile

Thanks for replying Elman. I will check out android studio and see if I can get the hang of that. In the main time I'm enjoying the new version and am looking forward to more updates from yourself to see what else you cab do with it.
The new font is brilliant and makes its a lot easier to read smaller text but allows gives the app a modern look as well. Glad you have choose the fastest import way as this is a very important feature when updating catalogues and moving them to the app either on tablets or smartphones.

Keep up the good work my friend.

Hi elman,
I'm interested in testing the v2.0 version but I didn't find the apk on github.
I'll try to compile in Android Studio but it'll be my first attempt to use that tool and I'm not sure to succeed. confused

All releases on Github can be found at https://github.com/elman22/pocket-amc-reader/releases
Newest release at the moment is https://github.com/elman22/pocket-amc-reader/releases/download/v2.0-alpha2/PocketAMCReader-v2.0-alpha2-debug.apk

However if you decide to build apk from source, you will have several bugs fixed, since I have made some fixes after alpha2.

I didn't manage to compile at the moment and still need to learn the know how. So I'm glad you provide the apk ;-)
I find it weird that there is no link on the release in github repository
Is it the way it's intended to appear? You always have to add "/releases" to the URL to get binaries?

It is available from menu. Just go to main GitHub page e.g. https://github.com/elman22/pocket-amc-reader. You are located in Code tab. Below project name Pocket AMC Reader you can see links - at the moment 48 commits, 1 branch, 1 release, 1 contributor. Click 1 release and you will be taken to release page. If developer decides to provide binary file, you can find it there.

Hi. Yes I noticed problem after upgrading to Android 6 as well. I keep catalog on external SD as well. What I did is this:
1. Go to Settings
2. Choose Apps
3. Select Pocket AMC Reader
4. Click Permissions
5. If Storage is off, turn it on, if it is on, turn it off and then on again

This allowed me to select XML from SD card and catalog loaded as expected. I will look closer into it with next alpha release.

I have try:
1. Go to Settings
2. Choose Apps
3. Select Pocket AMC Reader
4. Click Permissions
5. If Storage is off, turn it on, if it is on, turn it off and then on again

This don't allowed me to select XML from SD card

when I past to Android 6, I don't "Format as internal storage" my extSDCard and the path is /storage/0A65-FB70 (not /mnt/sdcard like in Android 5.1)
and for my internal the path is storage /storage/emulated/0


When go to Options and Catalogue Source, then I touch ../ to change directory to locate my xlm folder, I have a window with Folder "emulated" illisible...



I keep the old version on internal memory...

Hmm... /storage/emulated/0 is internal memory.

Is that screenshot from 2.0 version? Because 2.0 version contains module for selecting a file. If I use this module, I can pick files also from SD card, or I can use Total Commander.

View user's profile Send private message Visit poster's website Hello Ekman,

This was screenshot from 1.9.1 version.

Now with the Pocket AMC Reader 2.0 apha2 debug:



I can found my xml file lost between 2754 pictures on my SD card but when I choose it, it don't stay. I have always "Pick your catalogfrom SD card", not the catalog path.



When I take my xml file on internal memory (lost between 2754 pictures), the catalog path is writen but I have "Problem with import"...

I execute always script RemoveBadChars before generate my xml file for Pocket AMC Reader 1.9.1
I have enough free place...
I try change "catalog encoding"...


So, I keep the old version on internal memory...

View user's profile Send private message Hi Elman,

I am under Android 5.0 and I can not import my XML file which I can send you in MP : 4.6MB zipped in "BILLAUD") despite:
. I execute always script RemoveBadChars before generate my xml file ...
. I have enough free place (either in SD Card or in external μSD) ...
. I try change "catalog encoding"...
. The storage of the XML and associated images either in SD Card or in external μSD ...

I still have the error message "Problem with import" crying

I do not know what to do !!!

Thank you for your help

PS 1: I would like my children to consult their AMD BDD on their smartphone. How to avoid that every change, Pocket AMC Reader re-imports everything ?

PS 2: Why is the app no longer on the Play Store ?

View user's profile Send private message Visit poster's website Hello VERSEAU44,

you don't tell us what application you use.

With Pocket AMC Reader 2.0 apha2 debug I have the same problem.

I use Pocket AMC Reader 1.9.1 version since many years (2792 blu ray collection with picture) and NO PROBLEM.

The application Pocket AMC Reader 1.9.1 is no longer on the Play Store.

Try here ...

OUPS: I forgot

I tested with the 2 versions that you quote and ALWAYS the same error message ...

That's why I think it's my XML that's a problem ...

Put your Folder (with xlm and pictures ) on your phone memory.
At the first open Pocket AMC Reader 1.9.1 go to settings, and choose Catalogue source et reach your xlm file.
When it's done go back and your catalogue must be charged.
You can try without picture the fist time, if you see you collection it's may be a picture problem.
What is your picture size?
I use jpeg with 470x600 size.

View user's profile Send private message Hi VERSEAU44,

I checked the sample you sent me and problem is indeed with bad chars. You have bad chars in movies Nr. 445 and 2055. Both have bad chars in custom field ANECDOTES.

However when I tried RemoveBadChars script, all errors were fixed. Do you have latest version from http://mickaelvanneufville.online.fr/AMCU/scripts/ ?
