MyAnimeList API Update
After almost a whole year with the MyAnimeList API, I received news that it will eventually come back, but in closed beta sometime in June. While I don't know if end-users can use our applications when we implement the new api. If not, it will be limited to active patrons until the open beta to assist with testing and development.

First off, we will work on getting MAL Updater OS X working again. 2.5

Voluntary Donations Through Paypal/Ko-Fi No Longer Accepted

Due to controversial changes to Paypal, in protest of them forcing a fee to refund (although we don't do refunds on donations), in principle, we won't be accepting If donations through Paypal. However, Fastspring, which is our payment processor for donation licenses are not affected by this.

How the detected and last scrobble status is stored caused issues for some users as the program will crash after a long period of time in some instances.

Shukofukurou for iOS and Mac (1.2.3 and 3.2.8) Now Released
We apologize for the small delay. Since Kitsu went down, there was a delay in releasing an update for Shukofukurou for iOS and macOS to fix the Authorization bug for AniList and the inability to use Advanced Edit in AniList. Those bugs are fixed in the latest updates. We had to wait until Kitsu went back up so that we are able to hav

RE: Kitsu Downtime
Apparently, Kitsu ran out of funding and we do not know when they will be back up. However, if you are using Shukofukurou for macOS, you will be able to export your lists to MAL XML format, which you can use to import to other services such as MyAnimeList (which Shukofukurou currently do not support due to the lack of APIs) and AniList.

Make sure you are using the latest version, 3.2.7. The title identifier conv

Hachidori 3.1.2 Now Released

PHP7 Compatible Sparkle Server Now Available
For developers who are using Tom Harrington’s original PHP-based backend, you should know that the last compatible PHP version that works with this script, 5.6 is now end of life. Since the script uses the out of date mysql_* methods and PHP 7 removed this entirely, the script will not work. Now, I updated the script to use mysqli_* so it can run on PHP 7 in

Shukofukurou 3.2.7 and Shukofukurou for iOS 1.2.2 Released
Shukofukurou 3.2.7 and Shukofukurou for iOS 1.2.2 is now available.

March 2019 Development Goals
Now that we are in the new month, it's time to plan out what features will be working on. One of the features I want to add is a scrobble feature on iOS. While it won't be automatic, but it will use the share functionality within iOS. Streaming apps like Crunchyroll allows you to share a particular episode from your history to social media. The idea is to take the URL, retrieve the show and e

Shukofukurou for iOS 1.2.1 Released
Shukofukurou for iOS 1.2.1 is now released. This fixes the authorization issues with the app when functionality that requires authorization fails (e.g. List Updating, List Refreshing) due to the incorrect availability set to the stored credentials.
