It’s been a while since I’ve posted an update here, although there have been many changes since the last post. Here’s the most important… * Support for Foyles UK * Support for Diesel US * Support for Sony UK * Currency Conversion * Images added to the 'My Watchlist' page * Allow alternative email address for Amazon wishlist * Automatically mirror Amazon wishlist in your Luzme Watchlist * Switched from GetSatisfaction to UserVoice for customer feedback * New setting to allow user to opt-out of update emails * New setting to allow user to halt email alerts * New option to allow user to reset their password * Several major changes at the backend, including migration from mysql to percona.
I’ve just uploaded a new release (v2.3.1). The main new feature is the ability to choose the stores you want to follow; if you only want info about Nook books in the US, or Kindle books in the UK, now you can! This was the #1 most requested feature; please let me know how it works for you. Choose the stores you want in your settings page at http://luzme.com/profiles/edit/. Thereafter, you should only see those stores displayed on any book’s page; and you’ll only get email alerts for those stores.
I’ve just uploaded a new release: Import your Amazon wishlist Australian ebook stores The Australian stores supported are Amazon, Apple, Google and Kobo - please suggest any others you might like. Rachel
I don’t understand Waterstones ebook pricing strategy, I really don’t. They’ve just put up the prices on quite a few bestsellers to £15.85. Does Waterstones really think anyone is going to pay them nearly £16 for the ebook version of Lee Child’s “The Affair”, when you can get the hardback from Waterstones itself for £9.49, or the same ebook for £8.49 from Apple, Google or Kobo; or the Kindle version for £6.
I’ve just uploaded a new release: * Build Your Own Watchlist * Canadian ebook stores * SmashWords * "DRM-free" labelling * "Kindle-Prime-Lending" labelling The Canadian stores supported are Amazon, Apple, Google and Kobo - please suggest any others you might like.
Finally, Google launch their UK ebookstore at http://books.google.co.uk/ebooks. I’ve added support for the new store on http://luzme.com
Looking forward to sharing some ebook price charts there…

“Hachette e-books have been removed from the websites of Waterstone’s, W H Smith, Tesco and The Book Depository after the publisher said it would move to agency terms from today (20th September). But Amazon.co.uk is still selling Hachette titles on the Kindle, and appears to still be setting the prices.” Link to article on thebookseller.com
