Hi Rodrigo, This is a feature that we are holding off on until the API matures more. There is no ETA at this time.
Ok thanks Steve. In this case there is a way we can talk off line? I am building a iphone app and want to know if I use the api for searching and other functionalities it will be Ok, I just don't want to go any farther if I can't do what I have in mind.
Please let me know
The TOS was updated on 4/15 to be more lax on asking for permissions for mobile/tablet apps.
Is that what you wished to speak about offline? If so, then you should be ok with using the API for a mobile app.
If not, let me know!
Hi Steve, the part of the TOS makes me feel relieved but I still have some question about how I could use the API in a better way. right now I make a call to search a movie, I display the info but on my app the user can save this movie on his device database so he/she can load the information about the movies watched. If I can't save any information about the movie, every time the user needs to check their "watched" movies, I will need to send a list with the movies ids ( right now I can't sent a list ) I would have to send one ID at the time cache the results until the list is all done and display the info again making too many calls to the api. Now if I can save the movie info on the device database, when the user wants look the watched movies, I would just query the internal database and avoiding making additional API calls. As far the thumbnails I would save just the path.
Please let me know
If you begin to near your API call limit, please contact us and we can talk about raising you limit.
You can reduce the amount of calls to the API by *temporarily* caching results. As they are temporary and the cache will become stale, make sure to have a mechanism in place to update and retrieve the most recent data.
With that in place, you should be able to follow the agreement set forth in the TOS. I am reproducing certain sections of the TOS here for further clarity:
"Updates. You must maintain and make the most current Flixster Content available on your Service. The availability of Flixster Content is subject to change and Flixster may restrict access to, modify, suspend or terminate any or all of the Flixster Content or the Flixster API at any time and possibly without prior notice."
"You must remove within a reasonable time and not archive or display any Flixster Content that has been removed by Flixster or the user that created the Flixster Content."

Hi Guys, sorry if I missed the post, but by any chance , there is any way where we can send a list of movies id and retrieve the information of these movies? Before we could make a call passing one id, but I am looking for sending a list of IDs

Is there anyway where we can send a list of movies id and retrieve the information of these movies

I'd like this feature as well. Most other movie APIs allow this, but are painful to use.
