Metacritic Searcher

Metacritic Searcher


Metacritic Search allows for searching the entertainment review site Metacritic.com.

** Searching may be slow **
This is because it needs to make a query against www.metacritic.com and then parse the search result. The search results are retrieved quicker on a faster network (4G LTE is great!). The XML parser speed is improved by a faster processor.

** If app crashes please report it so I can address it. **

Searches can also be initialized by typing in keywords.
Results are returned in an easy to read list with the Metascore, platform and release date showing. Clicking on a result will display even more detail, including the User score, summary, icon and the number of reviews.
Clicking on the product name will open up the review page on Metacritic's site.
Clicking on the User Reviews or Critic Reviews will transfer the user to the reviews section on Metacritic's site.

Metacritic Searcher utilized a third party barcode scanner. It was tested with Barcode Scanner but should also work with Google Goggles.

Recent changes:
Improved speed for downloading search results.
The speed of the program is limited by the device because of xml parsing.
