New app for Brickset in the Android Play Store

Posted by ,

If you're an Android phone or tablet user, you'll be interested to take a look at LEGO Collector, which is a "unique application to browse and mange your entire LEGO collection including sets and all minifigure series."

It interfaces with Brickset's web services so you can download your collection to your device and keep it in sync.

I've installed it on my Galaxy Nexus and it works well, and pretty quickly too. My only criticism is fairly minor: it allows you to download instructions to your device, to the SD card, but once it's done so, unless I am missing something, they are hard to find and view. You probably need a third-party file manager to get to the contents of the SD card, which I don't currently have.

Other than that, so far, it's been faultless. It costs 84p (probably $1 and €1).

The mobile app directory, as always, contains details of all apps that work with Brickset.

I heavily recommend Solid Explorer as a file manager. Looks and works great. (and no, I'm not connected to them in any way)

Thanks--that works a treat. The PDFs are saved on the root of the SD card. Maybe not ideal, but at least I've found them :-)

The PDF viewer apps normally have a browser/file selection activity if you open it directly.

I use a custom ROM on my Galaxy, so the file explorer that comes with it works like a charm. It allows me to access root menus, so there's never something that won't be able to be found.

^^ ATM myBrickset remembers the last sort that was applied and uses it for all searches until the sort's changed again. I'm planning on totally reworking the search interface and allowing custom searches (including sort order) to be saved but need to find the time to do so!

myBrickset seems to work well. Any compelling reason to spend the $1 for this app?

Is there any reason for the app being area restricted? I can't install it from Hungary. Thanks.

I opened Hungary's area this morning (was just a mistake, sorry). I think it will be available soon on google play :).
Just email me if it's not fixed at 12' today.
