Pocketpedia's Reviews?

Postby sitenoise » Sat Dec 06, 2008 1:45 pm

Where are the reviews supposed to come from when you click the 'Reviews" icon in Pocketpedia? I never get any reviews showing up. Most all of my entries are hooked to IMDb not Amazon, is that why?

They come from Amazon, without an ASIN it would not be able to look them up.

I have the ASIN for the films and when in dvdP, if I choose Reviews they show up. Do I have to show them to dvdP before they will sync over, or are they gotten 'live', so to speak?

This begs another question I have, Is there a way to pick and choose what fields/info sync over to pPedia?

They are downloaded live (internet access it required on the iPhone or iPod Touch). There is no choosing what info gets synced, it all does. Would you like to limit it in order to keep the details sparse in Pocketpedia?

I would waay love to control what goes to pP, sort of like controlling what shows up in full screen view, but remember I'm more of an info-hound than a DVD collector.
And I wonder why I don't get the reviews. I have good internet connection.

Try running the "Advanced --> Get Advance Info --> Amazon" command on a few entries, and then sync them over and try the reviews.

Voila!

I suppose I can just select the whole library and run that command. This is one of the coolest iPhone apps I've got.

Thanks, Conor.
