I have a large collection of Blu-rays and I love the DVD Profiler software to keep track of all my movies (along with keeping a separate database of my large DVD collection as well). I'm glad that you guys released an android app as I have installed this onto my phone and tablet as well.

I have a request for a feature to be added to the android version that is on the iOS version, which the feature is the ability to jump to the letter that the title begins with. Since I have a large collection and I want to get to a title that starts with, let's say S to find Star Trek for example. I have to scroll and scroll all the way to S but adding a sidebar with the alphabet (by swiping from the right side of the screen leftwards to pull out the sidebar), I can just click on S and it jumps to the start of all the movies that begin with S.

This certainly beats scrolling and scrolling through hundreds, possibly thousands of titles (depending on the size of collection).

Keep up the excellent work Invelos!

Would be useful 
It all seems so stupid, it makes me want to give up!
But why should I give up, when it all seems so stupid?

There is a "long way" solution. In the desktop version, I have numbers & A-Z. I built them manually. It's tedious, however, it works.
You (and I) will probably have to do that here.

You (general you) can also use the microphone on your phone and say Star Trek which will show only those movies with Star Trek in them.

Although there isn't a jump to letter function, in thumbnail view you can press and drag on the right side of the listing to do a fast scroll.

Use Add a filter, for example Title->Starts With, type s, press confirm, confirm, and it will show you only those titles that starts with an s. Unfortunately the custom filters don't seem to be persistent so you have to redo them each time.

I just use the search function (the magnifying glass at the top of the screen) and type in the first few letters of the title.
