We love seeing what people create with Tropo.com and this week we saw a fun app created by Gert Goet that lets you call in and speak the name of a movie. If that film is in the Top 250 list at the Internet Movie Database (IMDB) you’ll get the IMDB ratings for the film, it’s position in the IMDB Top 250 and other information about the film. You can try it yourself using either a Skype or SIP connection:
When I asked him about posting about his app on this blog, Gert Goet send along this (unsolicited) comment which he subsequently said I could also use:
The easy to use API made the app really fun to develop actually, even for someone with no prior experience in VOIP-development.
That’s exactly the kind of feedback we hoped we’d hear!
Kudos to Gert for creating this app and we look forward to seeing whatever else you all may create with Tropo!
