Please do NOT add a first player selector!

I love Apps that are very specific in what they do. If I want a first player selector, I'd install one.
The main problem with Apps is currently, that the developers try to add features over features, that have nothing to do with the core aspect and usage of the App. I like this one as it is - for collection managing!!

you are right, new features should focus on the management of collections or lists

Looks nice. I'll give it some time in the next couple of weeks. Something that lets me track plays more easily would be great.

Re: BgList, new app for manage any collection and list (Android)
Awesome app - great work Juan!

Just a couple of small typos (since English isn't your first language).

In the Log Play screen:

"How many are you play?" should read "How many players?"

"Lenght" should be "Length".

Thanks for this. It would also be useful to have the ability to filter out expansions.

Re: BgList, new app for manage any collection and list (Android)
I must be missing something. It seems like the point of this is to access your collection on BGG but I can't figure out how to do that?

EDIT: Disregard. I figured it out.

Re: BgList, new app for manage any collection and list (Android)
Some typos:
It's "best with" not "best to" and statistics not statatistics.

"Time played" should be "playing time" (could be confused with "times played" i.e. how often have I played it.)

"minage" means Min. Age (make that two words).

"When do you play?" should be "When did you play?" (or "When have you played")

"How many play are you play?" should be "How many times did you play it?". In the log play menu I am missing the function to add players (as in BGG). (the other BGG app has that.)

Some feedback:
I like the filter.

I also like the option to go to the (real) BGG page of a game. However, for some reason the app doesn't simply open a tab in my prefered browser (Firefox), but it uses an in-app solution, where I have to log in to BGG again and where I can't zoom in. (the other BGG app does that.)


All in all, your app isn't bad, but I haven't seen yet why it should be better than the "Boardgamegeek" app (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.boardgameg...). Convince me to use yours instead though! Why is it better?

Re: BgList, new app for manage any collection and list (Android)
Hi Lucas Smith,

Many thanks for your comment, these small typos will and zoom be solved in the next version (1.1) where add new features:
- add/remove games from app
- rate your games from app
- translation to German

This app not replace the boardgamegeek app, my idea is complement it.

In BgList you can apply a powerful filter, log play (with twitter option), a simple and easy way to access any collection, create and share boardgame list. Anyway, i personally will use both apps

Re: BgList, new app for manage any collection and list (Android)
Is it possible to sort collection by rank?
AT the moment can only sort by Name, Num. plays and Rating.

Looks great. Video is great (nice music!). I am going to switch to android just for this... Well, not really, but looking forward for ios version. Good job, the app can really show you are a gamer and a bgg user.
