Cinema Explorer

1.0 for Android

The description of Cinema Explorer

Find information about cinema's close to you and film times at those cinema’s. This app was created for the Mobile Computing module at the University of Lincoln.

To navigate the app, enable location and tap on a local cinema icon on the map (shown as a logo if available) to see information about it. Cinema and film times are shown. Press on a film to read more about it, with a trailer available to watch.

Features of Cinema Explorer include:
• Using GPS to pinpoint local cinema locations on an interactive map
• Ability to find cinema information, such as address, phone number and rating
• Film showing times for each cinema
• Information about a film including a text description and YouTube trailer

As part of the module, the app needed to include a sensor and consume at least one REST API. The GPS location sensor is used to place the user on the map and get nearby cinema information.

The following API’s are used:
• Google Places API
• Cine-List API
• Movie DB API
• Google Maps API (for placing markers etc.)
• YouTube API

The app also used an SQLite local database to cache information from the API’s, which offers a gracious fall back if the user loses internet connection.
