  • Reinstated the program scanner.

Version 1.4

July 10, 2020
  • Improved voiceover support throughout the app.
  • Improved localization for non-US English (“theater”, “favorite”, become “Theatre”, “Favourite”, etc).
  • Fixed a bug where the app could crash when adding a diary entry via the program scanner and then immediately editing that diary entry.
  • Fixed a bug where the review request prompt closed automatically.
  • Unfortunately the program scanner has had to be removed from this version to comply with App Store guidelines. Hoping it will make a return soon.

Version 1.3

May 27, 2020
  • You can now use custom tags for your diary entries. When adding or editing a diary entry, there is a new ‘Add Tag’ button. You can manage your tags via the settings screen, and can even hide the default system tags if you prefer.
  • Updated how confirmation messages are displayed for common actions like adding diary entries and saving changes. The messages are more informative and no longer prevent you using the app while they’re on-screen. Mezzanine feels faster and more responsive as a result.
  • Tweaked the UI for adding productions so that it’s clearer that the show’s default cover art will be displayed if there is no custom cover art selected.
  • User accounts without a profile image are displayed using a randomly-assigned color instead of gray.
  • Discarded name changes prompt a confirmation about unsaved changes.
  • Mezzanine might occasionally ask you for a review in the App Store.

Version 1.2

April 11, 2020
  • You can now add your own artwork for any shows or productions that aren’t in Mezzanine’s database by taking a photo or selecting an image from your library. Mezzanine will help you line up the photo and crop your image before adding it.
  • Diary entries for shows you have tickets for but haven’t seen yet are now displayed under their own ‘Upcoming’ section in the diary.
  • The diary displays a count of entries in each heading when viewed as a grid.
  • When scrolling the diary in grid view, section headings remain at the top of screen the same way they do when scrolling the diary in list view.
  • Fixed an issue where the the Sign In with Apple button didn’t display a progress indicator in dark mode.
  • Fixed an issue where Sign In with Apple didn’t always work.
  • Fixed a bug where the app could crash when editing your profile photo on an iPad.
  • A few performance tweaks to speed up the app.

Version 1.1

March 4, 2020

  • You can now scroll through your diary entries by swiping horizontally, or tapping the small arrows either side of the program art.
  • Search your diary using the name of the show or theater.
  • Jump through large diaries using the new index list on the right edge of the screen when sorted by name.
  • When adding a production manually, Mezzanine will suggest theaters and cities as you type. Suggestions include popular theaters and any you have previously added.
  • Fixed an issue where sometimes a diary entry's date would be displayed with the wrong level of detail - e.g. 'January 1, 2020' instead of 'January, 2020'.
  • Fixed an issue where searching for a show could briefly display results from the previous search.
  • Fixed an issue where scrolling through search results could cause the results to disappear and the suggestions to reappear instead.
  • Added a shortcut to rate Mezzanine on the App Store directly from the settings.
  • Fixed an issue where some diary entries exported to CSV could become corrupted.
