We've got a major upgrade today. Upgrading our web framework to T5.2.2 turn out forced us to also upgrade our apps server to GF 3.0.1.
The good news, while upgrading, we also managed to release another version of Cinemator, 0.8.3. The most important thing in this update is partial synch. Now we only update the difference between the server and local db. In other words, only new movies will be downloaded. This will make the synch process a whole less annoying.
Another cool feature is the offline mode. If you're in a place where signal reception is bad. And you can't connect to the server in 30 second, then the apps will ask you if you want to go to the offline mode.
While the rest of the update is about looks. It doesn't mean that it less important. The new settings button near the search button make the top bar complete. The stars above the thumbnail will give user easy access to what movie is popular. So give review movie frequently, it will help others :) And finally the background is clean. No more annoying text that interfere with the movie title.
The playing at list has a sweet new separator, and the review activity has a custom rating bar in the shape of gold stars !
So enjoy our treat, and please support us by donating :)
