Movies represent an evergreen niche and giving the user an option to quickly search & bookmark them is a great way to keep the users coming back to your app. With a powerful API, you can develop even more features for this app template. As always, this is a very clean and structured source code, that will save you a lot of time and money if you were to build it from scratch, but most importantly, you can add more API endpoints with just 1-2 lines of code.
WHAT DOES THIS PRODUCT OFFER YOU
The app as shown in the video demo. Feel free to ask questions before buying.
Assistance will be provided for any code-related questions. You must register for an account with the TMDb website, which is currently free to sign up and get your own API key. Without the API key, the source code will not work. We provide you with a direct link in the documentation PDF on where to get your free API key.
WHAT DO I NEED TO GET STARTED
You will need a Mac computer with Xcode 12 installed. This app requires iOS 14+. All app templates on this website are for iPhones, with no iPad support.
The entire app is built using SwiftUI. You will need a Google AdMob account for Interstitial ads that are shown in the app.
HOW DOES IT WORK
– The user will land on the main home screen of the app, where the popular movies will be retrieved. We only show the movies returned by the API, we don’t fetch more than what we get in the API response. The API is very fast as you can see in the video demo below.
– The search feature allows users to type a movie title, then tapping the search button will take them to a new screen where we’re showing the search results.
– Tapping on any movie, will take the user to the movie details screen, where you can see a short overview, rating, votes count, and release date. All these details are coming from the API. You can learn more about this API and see that it’s very powerful and you can request so much more details about a movie, TV show, and so on.
– The main purpose of the app, besides searching and discovering popular, now playing, upcoming and top-rated movies is the Watched and Must Watch feature, which is a simple bookmarking feature. All bookmarked (watched/must watch) movies are stored in the UserDefaults.
This app template comes to save you a lot of time while giving you a source code that introduces you to this API and allows you to expand this app even more. Think about adding a notification reminder for upcoming movies, or add TV shows search functionality. You can also implement an advanced search feature, where you can search movies based on rating, or by a certain actor that the user likes the most. Another great feature that you can add is showing the actors for each movie, or similar movies. Check out the TMDb API to learn more about these possibilities.
