I just updated a sample of “Amazon in the Bookstore”, an App Inventor app that lets you search Amazon books by keyword or ISBN. The update even lets you scan a book to get its Amazon information (including lowest price!).
The app demonstrates how App Inventor can be used to create apps that talk to web services (APIs). For those of you that know some Python programming, or know a Python programmer, you can also download the source code of the web service itself. It provides a good example of how to create an App-Inventor-compliant web service.
For more information and to download the sample app and its source code, see:
