More watchlist updates

Posted by on Aug 1, 2011 in WinMX

There has always been something that has bugged me about the watchlist. The background would never display correctly for iOS and Android based devices. Instead of repeating vertically as needed it would repeat both vertically and horizontally resulting in a messy and distracting look to the page. I’ve now corrected this by building in support for all iOS devices (iPod, iPhone, iPad) all Android devices and WebOS devices such as HP’s Pre phones. The detection will show these devices a smaller background that fits in to their graphics display buffer (2 Mega Pixel JPEG images seems to be the Maximum for iOS) and stops this annoying Horizontal repeating.

So yeah, quite a lot of updates to the watchlist recently and finally it looks good on my iPad! – I fully intend to add the ability for users to add shows to their watchlists from the WebUI itself in a future update, I don’t know when that will be but hopefully soon if I can get some other things out of the way. I’m quite happy with the slower development I’ve been doing this year with regards to the Renegades chat room, gives me more time to chill out.
