Web-version status

First, thank you for everyone’s excitement about the upcoming web version. We have worked to make it just as easy to use as the mobile apps. It also uses the larger display to add features such as multi-item edits, where several items can be selected and edited in one go, like adding a tag or changing the storage location.

Development has been complicated as there were dependencies with the mobile apps. This meant we had to modify how your data is synced to the cloud to ensure cross-compatibility. We also created an infrastructure that will automatically scale to meet the fluctuating website demands to support the morning and evening peaks.

In preparation for the web version, we are ready to begin implementing these enhancements, which will require us to take the server offline.  These initial changes will not impact how you are currently using the app.  We have planned this activity for next week (yay!) around the 1st of November.  During this time, for approximately 12-24 hrs, there will be no access to the Barcode Catalog, and your data will not sync to the cloud.  However, your content will still be available on your mobile device, and you can continue to add items manually. We will provide additional details of the specific downtime once we have finalized the details.

New app version

Once we have updated the servers to support the web version, we will release updated Android and iOS apps. The iOS app update is primarily to support the web version. The Android version has many bug fixes, some of you are eagerly awaiting for this.  We realize this is way overdue and apologize that it has taken this long.  Rather than explain all the reasons why, please know this wasn’t our intent and we are trying to release it as soon as possible.

This is a required update if you want to access the Web version of the app, more information to come soon.

Support

The best way to contact us about an issue is through the app.  Go to Settings->About & Support and you can send us an email that will include your account details.  This makes it easier for us to find you in our system.

Lastly, we have a Facebook group called “CML Insiders”. It’s a great place to see how others are using the app or post a question about the app.  The group members are knowledgeable and we also check in regularly.
