Hello guys,

Looking to experienced programmers here. I want to make an Android app which searches the Wine AppDB for compatibility with items in shops.

For example, you scan the barcode on Team Fortress 2 and see if it works with Wine on Linux.

I've had a look into the barcode app and it looks like you can get it to send the query from the barcode to any website you want, the issue really is that it needs to send the product title to the AppDB form page, rather then its string of numbers.

I'm just wondering if anyone has any ideas on how to get this information out of Google Product? The assumption by me is that the app scans the barcode, sends the numbers to Google Products and then has to somehow return the product name, as opposed to all the information, then feed that name into Wine AppDB.
