I had an email this morning from a developer who wanted to connect directly to my iTunes Artwork Finder in order to power their own artwork finding app. This seemed like a good time to point out that there is no need to do this1 as I have the source code freely available for everyone on GitHub.
If you’re a developer and you want to use my API for iTunes Artwork, please instead get the source code and host it on your own server. You can get the code from https://github.com/bendodson/itunes-artwork-finder
And I’d prefer that people didn’t for two reasons; it costs me money in bandwidth to hit the iTunes Search API on your behalf and it is more likely to result in my IP addresses being banned by Apple which would take the service down for everyone. ↩︎
