Important: For Friday's code review, we ask that you not .gitignore API keys or credentials unless they grant access to sensitive information, since your instructor will need these keys to review your project with you. Before Friday, determine whether the API you plan on implementing includes sensitive keys. If so, make arrangements with your instructor ahead of time.
Goal: Continue building on your knowledge of requesting data from a backend web service and displaying it using fragments, ListViews, and RecyclerViews. Pay special attention to implementing implicit intents throughout your application.
ACTION_DIALin last night's homework, but what about the other activities listed? Browse through a few of the available options and discuss possible use cases with your partner.
Spend today and Thursday building a movie app that allows users to search for movies by title, rating, and release date. You will use information from The Movie Database API. Display the movie poster, title, synopsis, director, and main actors for each movie.
Here are some additional ideas to explore. It's not required to implement each and every one of these. Select one or more to focus on for your own app:
This particular movie API supports appending additional information to a response, which will allow you to receive multiple types of data from one response instead of making two separate responses.
For example, if you wanted both alternative titles and similar movies, you could append them as part of an
append_to_response parameter, like this:
