🔜 Version 3.6

This version is currently in the hands of our awesome beta testers.

New super cool stuff

  • Rippple will now show you your own 1 to 10 rating and indicate you if you commented a movie, episode, season or TV show in lists.
  • We’ve added more swipe (left to right this time) actions to the Activities tab: rate or comment episodes and movies, or recommend movies right from your history.
  • Sometimes you glance at reviews to see if a movie or a TV show is worth your time but the comments are full of spoilers and the ratings are not telling the full story. That’s why we added a "Sentiment Analysis" indicator on all comments. It’s not full proof but it can help you choose what comment to read and ultimately what movie or TV show to watch. It's also showing on your own comment's preview before posting so you can adapt your tone to appear more or less positive.
  • Movies and TV shows now display more useful information like their status (only when it makes sense).

Some other cool stuff

  • Beginning with this version, we are going to open a “what’s new?” page when you open a new version of Rippple the first time. After 20+ official releases, we thought it was a good idea to let you know when something changed.
  • We’ve added the possibility to force dark or light mode for Rippple. You can also follow the system appearance of course.
  • It’s also now possible to disable the “where to watch?” if you do not care because you know… you know?!

The less cool but worth mentioning stuff

  • We’ve made the purchase process a bit better to avoid any frustration when all you want to do is use Rippple to the fullest.
  • The tabs icons gained some weight (nom nom nom) and are now more readable.
  • Your stats will now be loaded even if your account is private.
  • The “To Watch” won’t be reloaded if you didn’t change anything in the "To Watch" settings.
  • And this version may or may not contain less bugs… it depends on the amount of new bugs introduced VS the one crushed.

One more stuff…

  • We’ve added an “Experimental” section in the Settings. Features in there may change a lot or be removed in future version but fee free to test them and let us know if you like them or not or if you'd like them different.
  • If you want, you can now test the “Calendar” feature. When enabled, a glanceable 15 days calendar is added on top of the “To Watch”. It’s built on top of the notifications system. This means you need to enable “To Watch” release Notifications for the Calendar to work properly.

Enjoy!

Version 3.5

New

  • Find "Where to Watch" movies and TV shows. The minimal data we have is provided by JustWatch via the TMDb API.

Search Quick Action

The Search Home Screen Quick Action gives you a fast way to start a search right from your home screen.

Hidden Shows

You can now hide and unhide a show from your Watch Progress (synced with trakt). Then you can configure your Episodes To-Watch to filter out the episodes from shows you've hidden.

Group Episode Notifications

Episodes from the same show airing at the same time will now be grouped to avoid flooding your Notification Center. This can be configured in the app's Notifications Settings.

DVD & Blu-ray Movie Notification

Next to the first theatre release of a movie, you can now get a notification when the movie is out on DVD & Blu-ray. You can opt-out of this one (like every other type of notification) in the app's Notifications Settings.

Version 2.4

First, more notifications for Premium users!

Get a handy notification when an episode or a movie in your to watch or in your watchlist is released. Screenshot 2020-06-20 at 10.54.47.png Control the notifications you get thanks to the new powerful Notification Settings. Run a self-diagnostic of the notification system if you feel like notifications are not working properly. Screenshot 2020-06-20 at 10.54.55.png All of the above will be improved over time: we'll add more types of notifications, you'll always be in control, and the sanity check will cover even more!

Then, the gimmick!

You can now choose between 3 versions of Rippple's icon: the Original, the Dark, and the Inverted one. Screenshot 2020-06-20 at 10.53.28.png Choose the one that suits you and enjoy it on your home screen and in each and every notifications.

And finally, the bug fixes!

Every developer tries to keep the number of crashes as low as possible, right? But we always have this little annoying bug popping up once every 1000 sessions or so. This one has been there for a long time but we finally crushed it! So no more crashes when loading a list of comments, no matter how it's opened.
