I've built and android app for CouchPotato.

It allows you to add movies to your CouchPotato server via search or by scanning it's UPC code. If you don't have the barcode scanner app installed, it will prompt you to install it via the market.

You'll need to configure the host/ip address (and have your couchpotato server accessible from the internet) in order for it to work.

Download here: http://kaput.ws/android/MobileCouch.apk

Let me know if you see any bugs or have any problems.

Version 1.0: Initial Search Function
Version 1.2: Adding HTTP Authentication
Version 1.5: Barcode Scanning
Version 1.6: Better UPC Lookups (still needs a little tweaking), and more on screen messages.
Version 1.7: More UPC lookup tweaking. Should be working for most titles now.
Version 1.7.6: Bugfixes
Version 1.8: Authentication should be working, added search button to soft keyboard, fixed editbox.


If it does not detect a movie correctly via barcode, please post the UPC code (12 digits) so I can troubleshoot.

If you are on the most recent version, can you post the UPC's?

Yeah, it is much better now. Still about 50% of the time it comes back as "Public" which i assume is because the South African retailers have stuck their own bar codes on.

from your droid navigate to this post here http://forum.xbmc.org/showpost.php?p=619038&postcount=1
from there click the download link to download the APK file it should install after download is complete.

getting everything set up is a matter of googling port forwarding, and DynDNS, also looking into your Routers settings.

The fallback site after the upcdatabase is http://www.itemlookup.net/.

Try searching for the UPC there and see what comes up, but yeah, it sounds like non-standard UPC's are the problem.

well first off you need to have CP installed on the computer that will be doing the downloading, the Android app is worthless without having CP installed.

CP works with SABnzbd get both of those up and running and the android app should work just fine.

You need Sickbeard, Couchpotato, and an NZB provider like NZBmatrix.

You can get help for configuring all of that in their respective threads. This thread is just for the android application that lets you connect to CouchPotato from your android phone.

This is a great looking APP for use with CP.

Now for my stupid question can APPS like this be written for the Blackberry OS?

Thanks

It's possible, but you need a developer willing to do it. From what I've heard, blackberry is a difficult platform to develop for.

Out of curiosity, what kind of courses do you take to program your own crap like this? I feel like such a leecher and maybe eventually I'll have a great idea and become a seeder of apps. LMK?

Do you have a password setup on your CouchPotato install?

There are a lot of online tutorials. One day I decided that I wanted to make an android app, so I did a lot of research and just worked my way through the process.
