5.3.3 Update: Performance Fine Tune + Bugs Fix

There go the whole Dominaria spoiler hype in just one day. Oh well, let’s move on.

In this release, we have spend a lot of time fine tunning the app’s performance. You should notice that card search is now faster and it can handle huge list of binder or wish list much faster than before. It is tough to optimize the app’s performance multiple platforms and a cross different variety of phone especially Android phone. The app will never beat many other MTG apps out there in term of performance due to many additional features such as multi-language, in-depth database and heavy image + animation to create a great experience for our users, but we are doing our best to keep up and make sure it run as smooth as possible on all device.

5.2.0 Update: Multi-Languages Card Search & Draft Timer Improvement

Introducing multi-languages search where you can search card name using the languages you want. This feature is requested by many users who own and play Magic in language other than English. It can be a very challenging when looking for a card you know it’s name in specify language but you totally forget it’s name in English.

The feature is off by default and can turn it on in the settings. For your information, syntax search is not supported in non-English search. Once you type the card name in search, auto-complete will kick in and suggest card name accordingly. This should make search using any language much easier.

Removal of Magic Spoiler from News Channel

We are sad to announced that Magic Spoiler will be removed from Bugko. You may have notice that the app no longer receive any spoiler / news update from Magic Spoiler since Rivals of Ixalan spoiler season started. This is because Magic Spoiler decided to block our server’s IP address from accessing their spoiler / news / website. No reason was given.

We have tried to contact with them multiple times to understand and resolve the issue, but so far they never replied our message. It is a sad decision and a big lost for our users. We respect each website owner’s decision, even though we can easy workaround the problem by changing our server’s IP address.

From next version release, players won’t be able to access previous spoilers / news in Magic Spoiler from the app nor you can receive any spoiler / news from them. We are still open to the possibility of working together with Magic Spoiler if they wish to talk with us any time in the future.

You can still get all your spoiler real time update with notification from MTG Salvation and Mythic Spoiler.
