Hey there,

I was hoping to find help on this forum as I am no Engineer and currently working on an App idea that would leverage content from existing apps on the market.
My question is: From a technical stand point, how easy is it to integrate other Apps in another App?

Hope this makes sense!
Thanks for your help

Aelioth hi. That would be illegal.

How about if the creators/owners of the existing Apps were ok with that?

you would need to talk with the creators/owners!
And see if collaboration can be done between you.

Reverse engineering is very much not allowed ( read the EULA on any app )

That would be ok, but you would need their source code.

Thanks Vistamike and Lighthouse!
To what extend would an App creator be ok to share their source codes? How much of a big deal is it?

Thanks again!

To do the actual job, depends on how good of a programmer you are.
