Thread: Dashbuster - Manage Your Blockbuster Queue

  1. #1
    Default Dashbuster - Manage Your Blockbuster Queue
    I've finally decided to release my Blockbuster Online (Blockbuster Online Total Access) queue manager.

    The application is called Dashbuster (for now), named after my Dashboard widget that does much the same thing, only in dashboard. (Dashbuster for Dashboard).

    I still have quite a bit of polishing to do with the UI, and several features I want to impliment....but I felt like it was solid enough to release for others to use.

    A US Blockbuster online account is required.

    The application can be found at http://iphone.dashbuster.com/ and hopefully soon in Installer.app under the ste respository.

    Hi,

    This was something I was looking forward to, but I seem to be running into a problem. I can login just fine, as evidenced by the app showing my "Shipped Movies" list... but it will not show any information under "Queued Movies"... (RSS feeds work just fine as well).

    I also gave the desktop widget a try, and it is showing the same problem?

    I'm not surprised, as this seems to be the number one bug that I run into, including with my widget. Typically, it's caused by some strange formating on blockbusters end (it happens more often that I'd like).

    Email me at [email protected].....I'd like to get this thing resolved.

    I love this app!!! it works great. I am curious if something like this could be used almost as a autologin on other websites? If so how hard would it be to make?

    Default blu-ray in queue?
    firstly, thank you so much for such an amazing app!

    question though - i can add only standard dvd's to the queue. is there any way to add blu-ray titles to the queue through this app, or i have to do it online only?

    please let me know,

    thanks!

    Just thought I'd take a minute to give folks an update on Dashbuster.

    The two major complaints from users at the moment are the broken search functionality and the cover art not loading.

    Neither of these bugs were caused by any of the firmware updates. Both of them were caused by changes to Blockbusters website.

    However, I have stopped any further development on applications for 1.1.4 and older firmware. I'm not sure what to expect in terms of the jailbroken world moving forward, but for the moment I'm focusing my efforts on building applications to be distributed via the appstore.

    There is currently no time frame for a future Dashbuster release, but there are some very exciting things going on that I can't discuss at the moment.
