Muvy is an Android application that picks a movie for you to watch. If you can't decide what to do just pick a genre and hit go! If you can't even decide on what kind of movie to watch, just shake your phone with rage and let the app decide for you.


I wrote this app for two reasons. One I wanted to learn how to write a java web application. The backend of this app that serves up the movie to be displayed, is a REST java webservice using the JAXB framework. I also wanted to learn how to parse and display data, XML, from a web application on android. So I knew what I wanted to do, but I didn't know what I was going to be serving up. After writing an app about video games, Gameplan, I thought that writing an application that dealt with movies would be a good idea. Thus Muvy was born.


I just added user created database to the app, and that was a huge undertaking in itself. For the immediate future I plan on refining this feature adding more customization options and of course making sure the app runs well. If you have any suggestions drop me a line and let me know!
