Awesome!

I only noticed a single bug: the Sinclair User magazine issue #134 Special Games Guide is displayed with a wrong (random) cover.

Also I suggest listing game titles in alphabetical order. Everything else works perfectly!

As a future improvement, I suggest providing a link to the corresponding Youtube video of each game, whenever available. It should be a simple change, that will help increase popularity of your app! :)

Hi Einar.
Thank you for suggestions.
I will improve the app, also with images in general list (like this site).
Youtube video link is a very good idea. 😉

Regards!

A new version was published (maybe take some time to be updated in store).

- added loading screens in general list (if applicable)
- list sorted by title
- added link to youtube video(if applicable). tap the item in the general list if "Video: Yes" is showed in the item

Everything's working perfectly!

One more suggestion: whenever an entry doesn't have a loading screen, it could show a playing screen instead.

Some changes:
- General List is now loading images of books and hardware
- centralized images in the General List (to makes UI better on landscape mode/big screens)

To do:
- add running screens and details page.

Regards.

It's a decent little app. It would be nice to see more information for each entry, but it gives a fair potted summary.

The search would be better if it ignored upper and lower case. "Your spectrum" returns no result, for example.

Hi R-Tape!
I will increment infos in the app. :)
Thanks for the test about case sensitive. It happens in the magazine search. I will talk to the api's creator because it happens even in the api's page.
Thank you.
