We've offered an application programming interface (API) to Brickset's database for some time and a number of excellent apps for mobile platforms have been developed as a result.
The current version is based on XML, so is a bit clunky and hard to use, but this week I finally found the time to update it to provide responses in JSON which should make it much easier to digest.
So, version 3 of the API is now live and, thanks to valuable help and feedback from RikTheVeggie (author of MyBrickset for Android), I think it's now ready for widespread use.
There may still be a few bugs, and a few minor changes that need to be made, but if you're looking for a software development project to occupy yourself while you're holed up, take a look at the documentation, request an API key and get started!
I look forward to seeing what you come up with...
