MovieScanner by phunapps.de
NOTE: Due to the new bar code scanner, there are no green lines anymore to aligm the bar codes to - that doesn't mean the app is broken, it means that you can use the ENTIRE screen now to scan! Also, the iPod4 (first iPod with camera) is no longer supported.
Have you been collecting DVD's, Blu-rays, PS3/Xbox/Wii games and video tapes and always wanted to have a current catalog of what you own? Until now, this was a cumbersome job involving a PC, some kind of database program and LOTS of time... but not anymore!
MovieScanner lets you build a compehensive list of your movies in an automated and convenient way - without typing! And you can take it on the road, too!
You simply scan the bar codes on the back of your DVD, Blu-Ray or even your old VHS cases. On devices without camera, simply type in the codes and get the same amazing result!
Movie data is automatically pulled from the internet using our own web service that is constantly being updated to guarantee the best possible hit rate. As data gets stored on your iPhone for offline reference, each movie shows up in the list with it's title, genre and a cover image. A powerful search option lets you find any movie in just seconds.
In details view, you can see a short description of the movie, the genre, and in many cases a direct link to the movie trailer! What's more, you can simply add a personal note and choose from 4 user-defined flags that let you mark any movie as especially cool, given to someone, on your wishlist etc.
With the new bluetooth multi-user option, you can even share your movie list with other MovieScanner users (not on 1st generation devices) - or eMail the list as a CSV or XML file.
