NZB Monitor [ios]

First thanks for the code :)

NZB Monitor is not bad for a first release, however I found a few issues :

The search feature needs to be improved. When i use Category filters, I get no results (at least with a few tries on 3 newznab providers).
If my search is specific like : show s01e08 I get no result when I should...

They're is also a small bug that can crash the app (but I admit the user has to be a little perverse ;)), if no downloads are active, just slide on the "No active downloads" line and click on Delete and boom.

I'll check back on future updates, I'm sure with just a few adjustments this can be a very good app.

Oh, there is a feature that I feel is missing from all app (I don't know if it's even possible through the API), could you add an option to purge the queue ?
I'm using RSS feeds (NZBs are auto paused) and sometimes I have a lot of things that I don't want to download in the queue and I'd like to be able to purge it in one click from an app (currently I have to go to the web interface).

Keep up the good work,

Thanks for the feedback, I'll look into the issues you mentioned.

There is a 'delete all' action in the API which I had originally catered for, I just need to implement it on the server screen. I'll add it in the next release.

cheers

Thanks for the Promo code.
Very nice program, good looking, straightforward in use.

One little nitpick: when deleting a job from the queue, you don't offer the choice to delete "including files".
If you don't want to offer three choices then I suggest that you always delete "including files".
This means adding &del_files=1 to the API call.
(Because now you end up with orphans in "incomplete".)

Another (very very small) one:
Server status: when there's no speedlimt set, you show (null) KB/s
Functional, but it looks a bit odd :)

Thanks for the response. I'll include the ability to delete the files and look into the null issue in the next release.

1.2.1 is now available in the store. Mainly bug fixes and theme support. You can now remove the black/green theme if you prefer the default blue.

Cool update, thanks :)

However it seems that I'm still having issues with newznab category filtering (no result)

Hi,

Thanks for the promo code. I too am seeing the newznab filter issues. It appears that I need to select both main filter (TV) and the sub (SD) for any results to appear.

I've tried it on several sites. But I really like the app and I've tried most of them. If you could add browsing of newznab sites then it would be perfect.

Thanks guys. Seems I should have done a bit more testing with the filters. I'll look into it. Once I get around to setting up my own instance of newznab it should make testing easier.

I started looking into a built-in browser for browsing nzb sites in general, but I put it on hold to do the newznab integration. Is there any specific functionality you would want to see? Mainly with regards to queuing files. I figured I could either intercept the link (not sure of what extensions are used, nzb, zip, etc) or simply allow files to be queued by entering in the url which you can copy from the browser.

thanks

Just the ability to casually browse Newznab sections would be perfect. I think a built-in browser might not work well with sites like Dognzb where there is a heavy amount of customization going on.

I have submitted v1.2.2 to the store, mainly containing bug fixes. Specifically the issue with no search results being returned when filters are selected, and also the app crashing when only 1 result is returned.

I should hopefully have a release with a built in browser and some other features soon.

Feel free to tell the forum if you use a promo code people. Saves us the trouble of trying to redeem one. My search for an iOS NZB client continues!
