Hello! I'm ahnpan and I'm an iOS/Android native app developer.
I wanna start a native iOS MFC app, an open source project. There's currently an old iOS app but it's very dated already. I wanna make a new version.
I've been looking around the forums and most of the available are all Read only. I checked out the official Android MFC app and there are user features and database access that's not listed in some documentation. Is there more info regarding this?
I really wanna start already since I feel like this is one of those fun projects I can share with others given that I have quite a lot of collector friends.

I glanced at the official android app and it has a lot of functionalities i didnt find in the docs. I hope we can get info on it.

API v2 docs can be found here:

(mfc link)

However, there's alot of functionality not working, eg. fetching lists, comments, Picture of the Month, Week, ...

You'll find you'll have to use a mix of both the API v1 and API v2 to get the most out of it API wise.

As for the functionality that seems to not be in the docs: Chances are big that these are just webcontent shown in the app, and are not results fetched from an API. As far as I can see, there's no magic / hidden functions in that app that's not made public, but the exposed API is limited for sure. I wish that they'd update their API so all REST functions could be exposed to developers, but alas..

I've started development of a newer Android app nearly 2 years ago... Maybe this is the right moment to start development again :D

Thanks for sharing this details.

I was thinking of connecting the API with an app called Memento Database. Memento Database allows you to create your own database to keep track of items. My goal would be in a search field a person enters a search of the item they own and it will pull on details of that item and store it in the Memento Database.

I will give you an example of one the pre-built database. The Memento video games database allows you to track a game collection. Lets say if you search for Mario 3, after it finds a match it will give you the date when the game released, descriptions, pictures, platform it on, etc which will be saved in game collection. Memento is only for Android though.

I'm still missing fields for my collection; "mycollection" does not even have an order date, owned date etc.
Instead of making a usable API, they focus on making an unusable layout xD
