    Oh yes, the ability to read is quite handy :oops:

    As stated, I would be glad to be of service for this. How are the requirements of developing for iOS? What r the costs of the dev environment? From c# to objectiv c should not be toooo hard. Whatever I can do, I will gladly help (maybe easier to work on the backend for me, though).

    To develop for iOS you need a Mac with xcode (version 3 is free I think, version 4 costs about $4-5) and an iOS Developer Program membership. This membership is free until you want to test apps on a device or submit it to the App Store.

    Learning objective-c isn't that hard, the biggest adjustment for a c# developer will probably be that you have to do memory management (alloc, release, ...).
    The Apple tutorials and documentation is quite good, so that helps.

    For the iPad version I will have to find a good concept how to best use all that space available. Then I hope the transition isn't too hard ... *knocks on wood*

    Looks awesome, could you scale it up for iPad use?

    I will upload the app this week (if nothing drastic happens). Then it takes 1-2 weeks to get approved (if it doesn't get rejected ;)). You can follow updates on twitter @MePoCouchPotato.

    An iPad layout is on my roadmap. Don't really know how it will look, yet, but I will get to it.

    This seems an very interesting Project for iPhone users. Is it possible to show my Moving Pictures Database with my movies like on the "now playing" screenshot with all details? In the Moving Pictures thread i asked about an iPhone App for follw.it but for me, the social components are not so important. I would have a nice clean look on my database with my iPhone ;)
