App Framework (formerly jQ.Mobi)

SYNOPSIS

This demo App provides a way to see the Rotten Tomatoes API in action. It is built using Intel's Cross Platform Development Kit (Intel XDK) that lets you create mobile apps for smartphones and tablets using standard web languages (HTML5, CSS, and JavaScript).

WHAT DOES THIS APP DO?

Uses Rotten Tomatoes's API to find newly opened movies and top DVD rentals, along with their thumbnail image and rating.

GETTING STARTED

You will need the following to get started -

  1. Intel's XDK. Free Download - http://xdk-software.intel.com/
  2. A Rotten Tomatoes API key (Register at http://developer.rottentomatoes.com/member/register).

OBTAINING THE API KEY

Before you can begin using this app, you will need to get an API key from Rotten Tomatoes at http://developer.rottentomatoes.com/member/register. This will also give you a Single Sign-On Mashery ID with access to hundreds of other APIs.

SETTING UP THE API KEY IN THIS APP

Once you have obtained your API key, assign the API key to the variable api_key on line 1 of the file api.js, like so -

  var api_key ='PLACE-YOUR-API-KEY-HERE';
