DC Universe Infinite Release Notes - "The Third One" - May 20th, 2021

Our latest update, code-named The Third One, comes chock full of usability enhancements. Through long-press option menus peppered globally throughout the site, you can now add items to your library, custom lists, as well as other convenient features anywhere you see a comic issue, series, or collection thumbnail.

Nice updates! Makes it easier to navigate my library now. I need to reorganize a little, add some shelves :stuck_out_tongue:

Just wanted to copy this over here as something that can hopefully be added/fixed in the next update.

Adding comic issues to lists on the website has become excruciatingly slow for me ever since the thumbnails were added to the “Add To” box. I mean, it looks pretty, but functionally it leaves a lot to be desired. Thanks for looking into it.

Thanks @KookieSuperApe for the mentioning this pain point. I added it to our list when you mentioned it in that thread, so hopefully it’s something that won’t be bothering you & other users for too much longer. Of course I can’t promise anything, but I can indeed always hope for the best!

I have uninstalled and installed the app again, using version 3.1.2(#16065)[PROD] [OS11] on my Samsung Tab S6 Lite. The long-press menu does not work and honestly, I cannot tell any difference in the app. Not sure if this is the update?

Heya @darkstarz, thank you for the feedback and I’m sorry you’re having that issue with the long press function. I suggest that you submit a ticket into our Customer Support team concerning this if you have not already. :frowning: also, going into the actual application settings in android and clearing out all cache + data and then doing the uninstall → reinstall process might just resolve the problem. Try that before you submit your ticket, and definitely let us know how it goes!

I am at 0 mb in my cache and I have uninstalled and reinstalled. Is 3.1.2 the newest version?

Hmm, you know my app (android) says 3.1.2 as well but the update was from the 5th of April and I don’t see anything about the long-press in the what’s new description. I’m thinking it’s possible the android update hasn’t rolled out yet on google play, but I’ll check with someone and we will get back to you to let you know what’s going on. Sorry for the confusion!

That makes sooo much more sense!!! I also noticed there wasn’t an update for the app in my update section which is why I moved on to uninstall and reinstall.

Nifty! I look forward to the update as it becomes available for me (which it currently isn’t, last I looked, as of this writing).

Just checked on my Android device and the update appears to be there for me. Can anyone double check in Google Play and confirm? May have just been a delayed update.

Looks like mine updated early this morning on Android.

I’m seeing 3.2 on my Android! Give it about 4-5 days to roll out to 100% across all devices. I had to force update from Google Play, for what it’s worth :slight_smile:

How would one go about forcing an update?

I went to the Google Play store, looked up DCUI, and it had a wee “update” button I smashed, thusly:

Ah!!! It all makes sense now! I don’t have the update button. However, I did just opt into to the beta version of the app!!!

Thanks for your continued support and bug fixes! I’m using a new phone with Android 10 and everything looks very smooth. I added a shortcut to the community on my homepage :sunglasses:

@darkstarz Ah, well just watch out for the actual update (as AJ said hopefully around 4-5 days for 100% rollout to all devices) so you can make sure you update to the newest version :slight_smile: of course if you want to keep using the beta version, that’s up to you!

@iJest Yay :partying_face: All credit goes to our technical team, I’m sure haha. & of course our community letting us know what to add and fix! Glad you’re enjoying it, my friend.
