Sunday Shortcut: 🍿 Plan Movie Night
Recently I’ve been trying watch more more movies. Fitting in a sci-fi epic like Dune can be tough, but is well worth the effort! With this week’s Sunday Shortcut, you can plan a movie night for a film of your choice and schedule it based on when you’d like to start or finish. It will give you a notification with some details about the film and put an event in your calendar so there are no interruptions.
To run this shortcut, you need to get an OMDB API key. This is free (for up to 1000 calls a day). To get one, all you need to do is enter your name and email address here - you should get the key immediately via email, just make sure to click the verification link to activate it. This allows the shortcut to search f or information about films.
When you install the shortcut, it will ask for the API key described above, and for you to choose one of your calendars to add the movie event to.
If you’d like to try it out, you can download the shortcut here.
Until next week,
P.S. If you choose to get the poster art, a request will be made to an Amazon URL where this is stored - if you aren’t comfortable with this, choose ‘No’ and the only URLs which will be accessed are those for the OMDB API.
