as a homework i am planning on creating an app which lets you manage your dvds.
we want to scan the barcode of the dvd and retrieve information from imdb so that we can create a library object with film title, director, a few actors and so on.
i know java and i know a little about android (probably more in the next weeks).
is it legal to use imdb? its gonna be non-profit, if it ever sees the appstore (since its just a homework)
can anybody suggest a API or another way to use a barcodescanner? (we dont wanna create our own)
also: what is the easiest way to get information from imdb? i guess its not as easy as working with googlemaps... (sending and retrieving information).
