The Unofficial LEGO Minifigure Catalog app now in the AppStore

Posted by ,

The app is now available in the Apple AppStore and is priced at just $2.99. It's a universal app which will work on iPhone, iPod and iPad.

If you have an iOS device I highly recommend you download it. It's an excellent piece of work. Read my full review for more information.

Hmmm...well, so far I have had to restart the app at least ten times - it keeps crashing. Also noticed some odd data, like sets that report zero figures when they clearly contain many. Hopefully, this will be fixed in an update.

thomasmain: Sorry to hear that! Could you please email [email protected] with some details about the crashes you're seeing? What device and OS are you on?

Thanks!

Sure. I'll add a comment here as well. I have tried the app on an iPhone 4S with iOS 5.0.1 and an iPad 2 with iOS 5.0.1 with the same results. The crashes seem really random to me. For instance, I'll start the app, choose "Figures", "By Year" "1975" and start scrolling down the list and crash back to the springboard. I've added my figs from Brickset and scroll through those and also get a crash. But it's not just scrolling, sometimes the crashes happen after pushing a button as well.

On another note, I've noticed that 52 out of my 211 figs imported from Brickset wound up on the "other" category and I also have three separate entries for "other" -- I haven't investigated how this looks on the Brickset end and I may have to do some cleanup there, but thought I would mention it here as well.

Also, I have at least one fig in my collection that I know I don't actually own - nfi.hol.chr.1998.01 and that only comes in 4 sets, none of which I have marked as having at Brickset - how did this data get pulled in? Again, I will look at my Brickset data to make sure.

Thanks for being responsive to possible bugs.

Quick update about the nfi.hol.chr.1998.01 fig - I do have it, but it's from set 852742-1: LEGO Holiday Magnet and not any of the ones listed in the app. Similarly, I own his.pir.oth.2009.31 from DKPirates-1: Brickmaster Pirates, though the app lists only the 2009 Advent calendar as having this figure. I guess these "special sets" aren't in the app yet and when pulling data from Bricklink, any other sets the figs might be in are assumed to be the correct ones.

Can it run on iOS 3.1.3? First gen iPod touch?

@ sarlacc98: Probably not. The system requirements are iOS4. Maybe you can upgrade the OS?

Like the app and can see it has a lot of potential. There are a couple of glitches, not all images have uploaded and I can't import my brickset data. (have contacted the developers) However even with this I like it a lot and am sure subsequent updates will sort things out.
I'm using a 4S and 5.0.1
