Thanks for the feedback, guys. It looks like we have three main topics:
- Sort order of movies by person: The way that this works now, it will invoke the same sorting order as selected for other movie screens. So if you have been using "Sort by Release Date" then your movies per person will be sorted by release date. By default for the app, this is sorted by name, so that's how they will be displayed unless changed by the user. Also, this can be changed "on the fly", so if you have movies for an actor displayed alphabetically, you can hit * and change the sorting right there.
- Display some indication that * has more options: In the two screens where this would be applicable (Series episodes, and Search) I couldn't really find a good place to put it. I experimented with using the breadcrumbs for this, but this just further clutters the already limited breadcrumb space we are given, often making the end result a truncated mess. Furthermore, changing the breadcrumb text will persist onto child screens where it would not make sense to have a "(* for Options)", and just gets confusing. I could probably do this by adding a bunch of special case checking into the code, but it seems like it would do more harm than good in the end.
- Label for titles associated with a person: It looks like we don't want to label this "Films", but as BAS pointed out, this includes movies and television. So, simply "Movies & TV" might be an option. "Filmography" to match the title of the results screen is another way to go. We could change that title too, I was just using Filmography to mimic the IMDB convention, and I couldn't think of anything better. I'll just put it in as "Movies & TV" for now, and it will be an easy change to make if we find that another label makes more sense.
