I think the buttons are better this way with the same design. Only the arrow buttons are odd a little in reader mode.

Hm, when I press the library button in the reader, CRIOS shows the blurred cover of the actual comic for at least 2-3 seconds, before goes to the library. As I remember it was somewhat faster in the previous release, and it was waaay faster before that.

I think we need an option to search only in titles. There could be way too much results because of the summaries in a lot of cases.

This is a very good update, and I like almost everything:
  • The relatively bigger icons
  • The redesigned reader arrows (much better & intuitive)
  • Info dialog background is now having the perfect opacity & position
  • The 'lists', 'hide' & 'continue' buttons
  • The subtle ComicRack overlay

Some bugs/suggestions/problems:
  • Stack ratings have become inaccurate. All my stacks are now 5-stars.
  • Going back to the library from the reader is still choppy (as Mammut says)
  • I can't sync & I'm really pissed off. :angry:

No, that's not the problem because I've always had two & they synced just fine. For testing, I tried to sync only with the iPad & it failed. Then I synced only with the Galaxy Tab & it worked.

Have you tried re-pairing your device?
I didn't try re-pairing. I'll do that later today & report back here. Hope that works.
Well, I unpaired both my devices & then hit the pair device button. It recognizes my Galaxy Tab just fine (& syncs it fine), but it does not see my iPad.



Both my devices are connected to the same wi-fi, and I'm easily able to browse the net with the iPad on the same wifi connection.



Even if I make the Galaxy Tab offline & try with ONLY the iPad, the situation does not improve. CRW just doesn't 'see' my iPad.

Can anyone help me?

I did it! :cheer:

I reset my iPad's all network settings to factory defaults, and then re-paired. This time, CRW got it:

A little bug:

During syncing, tap the gear button (now at the top right) to bring on the settings pop-up, where you can see the comics being synced. Keep it open. Once the sync ends, the 'reloading library' progress bar that appears is BEHIND the settings pop-up. I think it should be in front. Also, while reloading, all the pop-ups should automatically close.

is there any reason why the reload library needs a separate pop-up? if it can only be accessed from the tools menu anyway, why not leverage the existing Sync progress bar and have it perform a dual purpose.

Again not able to sync/pair since this morning. :(



This is bad. I synced fine yesterday, I don't change any settings, & the sync doesn't work today. The iPad is working fine online on the wifi, by the way. And, as always, CRA on Galaxy Tab is syncing fine. Even erasing & resetting network settings is not helping now.

What network settings do you have on your ipad? I have none, the only thing is the password for my wifi network, nothing else.

Exactly the same. I have a 3G simcard that requires no extra settings. The only settings I have is the wifi password of my router. When I sync I turn off the 3G portion & the wifi works fine.

I have been able to sync well always (since I got this new router 1-2 months back). Problem is if it was working fine yesterday, what breaks it today.
