Find Info on Your Favorite Films with Movie Roll

You’re probably used to scouring various websites in order to find all that you need to know about movies you intend on watching. Wouldn’t it be great, however, if all the information were available at your fingertips? Sure, there are plenty of apps that act as front ends for IMDB, Rotten Tomatoes, and so on; but most of these apps either lack multiple content sources or they’re just not as aesthetically appealing as we’d like.

XDA Forum Member Uroborus aims to change this with his latest application Movie Roll. So what does it do? It currently lets you organize and discover movies, find information about your favorite celebrities, and most importantly, find out which movies you would like to watch next. In the words of the developer:

View:
– Full movie information, budget and revenue
– Movie reviews and trivia
– Trailers
– Posters, photos and images
– IMDb, Rotten Tomatoes and Flixter ratings
– Similar movies and collections of movies

Movie charts:
– New openings and future upcomings in theaters
– New DVD releases
– Most popular and movies for today
– Top box office
– Oscar awards, Golden Globe awards
– Subgenre charts: Steampunk, Girls with Guns, Time Travel, Zombies and many more

Perhaps the best part of Uroborus’s app, aside from the wealth of information that is readily available at your fingertips, is the beautiful user interface. And as demonstrated by the screenshot in the thumbnail, the interface is right at home, on both phones and tablets. And if you happen to be accessing the information on a large screened device, you will be treated to a multi pane interface that is clearly built keeping both the Holo UI guidelines and the Fragments API in mind.

Head over to the application thread to find out all you’ve ever wanted to know about your favorite movies and their stars.

Open War for Open Android: Antitrust for Cyanogen?

Android and openness is something we talk about all the time, but the recent developments in the industry point towards inherent flaws with this very premise. Be it from bloggers, political institutions or corporations, Android is seemingly not open enough. The “War on Openness” is ironically becoming an open war, where many players are increasing their stakes and scope to try and land a bigger hold - or at the very least, restrict Google’s - on what is the world’s...

Diving into the April 2015 Material Design Update

Before the release of Android 5.0 Lollipop, the Holo Design guidelines served as the official reference for Android design, right from IceCream Sandwich to KitKat. However, updates to the guidelines were few and far between, leading to a lack of synchronization between Android design and current UI/UX trends. Google seems to have learned from their mistake the last time around, and earlier this week, a significant update was released for the Material Design guidelines, marking the second revision in less...
