ComicBase 19.4.5 Now Available

This updater cleans up a glitch in creating the path to for store log files which we inadvertently introduced in Sidekick 19.4.4 (but which only affected computers which hadn't had Sidekick on it before), and changes the exported basic collection report to show the graded value of each item, instead of the NM value. If you've been affected by either of these issues, please download the update and tell us what you think at 

At last!

New ComicBase Mobile App for iOS and Android

ComicBase Mobile -- a new native app for your iPhone, iPad, or Android phone or tablet -- is now available in the iTunes and Google Play store. This new app allows you to see a summary of your collection's value (as well as how it's changing over time), view your mobile reports, and even lookup current values and add new issues to your collection while you're on the go--either by typing in the item, or using your device's camera as a barcode scanner.

The new app is free, but requires ComicBase Professional or Archive Edition with a current update subscription. Check out our latest newsletter for all the details!

ComicBase 19.4.4 Now Available — Featuring Support for the new ComicBase Mobile App

Sidekick learned several new tricks with this latest beta, featuring much quicker and smaller backups, as well as the ability to update collection stats in conjunction with the new ComicBase Mobile app whenever you use Sidekick to check for updates. We also  just did a slight update just now raising the version to 19.4.4, fixing one late-breaking glitch. 

Note: if you have any previous updaters installed, you'll need to uninstall those first (under Add and Remove Programs) before installing the new beta. This won't affect your ComicBase data.
