Great app, but navigation can be a bit cumbersome at times.

The one big one that keeps getting to me is when I'm adding movies, I'd love one button to get back to my library as opposed to hitting the back button four times.

Tap Done in the top right, or in the top right menu.

Thanks for the reply!

The only place I see a button I can tap in the top right is the green check mark in the "Add to Collection" menu. Once I go any further, there's no longer any buttons. So, for instance, once I've added a title through the "Add by Title" feature I'm taken back to the list of similar titles. I now have to hit my phone's back button three times to get to the "Add to Collection" menu. And at this point I may as well just hit it again as opposed to moving my thumb to the top right corner. (And then once on the main menu, I have to press the All button to get to the library, which is almost always my final destination anyway).

It may seem like a small thing (4 whole repeated button presses?! Why, in my day....), but obviously ease of navigation and user interface is a big deal in any software. And I just kind of feel like one should be able to access the library with one or two button presses from anywhere in the system.

While I'm on UI, that little green checkmark is a bit confusing too. The first time I added a title, it took me a good while to figure out how to confirm and leave that page. 9 times out of 10 when you see a checkmark like that, it signifies a box that can be turned on or off, not a button that has an immediate result.

Again, not to be nitpicky, but I really love the app and just want to leave my feedback to make it as good as possible.

What device are you running the program on?  Also, what version of Android?

I'm trying to reproduce this here. What is on each screen when you have to press the back button four times, after adding an entry?

Sure thing, here's some screen grabs for ease.



This represents the three clicks (one to just get rid of the keyboard) to get from adding a film back to the menu with the checkmark button (I guess it's blue, don't know why I thought it was green before).

And then one more back button press, or the check mark to get to the main menu.

I never added a film this way before, so it doesn't bother me, but the description is right (5.1).

And, btw, thank you for the resized images!

Not everyone can make it.

Ok, thanks for the details.  I'll see what can be done to streamline this.
