Details
The new version of YACReader for iOS is in its final development stages, this is the full list of new fatures coming with it (in no particular order):
  • Renewed UI, much more cleaner design
  • Improved image quality in covers(library) and pages(reading)
  • Added support for iPhone 6/6+
  • Completely new import section ¿Did you already tap the percentage indicator while importing?
  • Imports can be canceled, paused, resumed. They are automatically stored when the app goes to background and restored when it comes active again
  • Three new cloud services are supported, four in total: Dropbox, Google Drive, Box and One Drive
  • Support for browsing cloud services and selective import (configurable lading folder, no more YACReader folder)
  • Added full folders importing through iTunes (bye, bye to: create folder, select all, cut, paste)
  • YACReaderLibrary integration improved, the iOS version tries to connect automatically to the last server used. Added sync back reading progress to the server (this feature requires YACReaderLibrary 8.0 beta 2, coming soon)
  • Brosing, Importing, Reading from YACReaderLibrary is now supported using your data plan. You have to configure your router properly (port forwarding) and use your external ip to connect to the server.
  • PDF is supported natively, that means that you can use iTunes or cloud services for importing PDF files
  • Added support for WebP image format
  • Big covers view has been improved adding extra information (progress bar) and using all available space in portrait mode (showing more info: pages, issue number, volume and rating)
  • I have simplified the help section, I am going publish an online users' manual
  • Not sure if I am forgetting something :)

Notes

There are a lot of new features and little details in the TODO list, I would have liked to add more of then to this release but I had to cut the development and just release a new version. It has been delayed for so long. If you are missing any promised features....I am so sorry, I didn't forget them, they are simply delayed to future minor releases (2.x).

I have had to drop the support for iOS 5 and 6. My most sincere apologies if you are still using a device stuck with any of those versions of iOS. Keeping them would have been too much effort, even huge companies with lots of resources have dropped those versions :(

coming soon

If someone needs an updated .deb package for the desktop integration test please let me know. It's not quite ready for a public Linux beta yet, but I can do a quick 8.0 build that has all the features you need for this test.
My answers are not necessarily official YACReader statements but mostly represent my own opinion in technical matters.

I get a message: "Error importing comics - There were error during the import proccess, please, check your files and/or network connectivity" while trying to import comics.

It happens with more than 1/2 the comics I've tried and they all work fine when I choose "read" (rather than import).

I've tried restarting the YAClibrary, YACR for iOS and even the iPad. Always the same error with the same comics.

iPad mini - gen 1 - iOS 8.1.2
OSX 10.8.4


request: make it possible to view my YAC Library reading lists as well as import/read comics through the lists.

Other users have reported the same issue. This is an issue that I have introduced in the latest steps of the development, I am working on it :angry: :angry: :angry:. It has nothing to do with the file itself...

Thank you for the feedback!!!!

Sorry to ask such a base question, but this is the first time I have used Test Flight (I actually didn't even know it existed!)... Do we have to do anything after submitting a beta request to you or does the Test Flight app just recognize that we are in the program?

Hi!

You'll get an email with a link you should open on the device you've TestFlight installed on.

I guess Luis will delay new e-mails because of the bug he is working on.

I have sent all the pending invites right now. I have to manually import the testers from the Google form to TestFlight...

@Drybonz, you have to receive a mail from Apple and you have to install the TestFlight app in your devices. If you don't receive the e-mail, please, check your spam folder.

Thank you for your help pals!

Did you get any errors? That shouldn't be the behaviour...... :huh:

Anyone else having this issue? Installing 1.6.5, import a few comic, and install the beta could be a nice test to do.
