java – Android REST Tutorial / Sample Project

Posted by: admin May 14, 2020 Leave a comment


Coming from Windows Phone/Store development, I’m used to a lot of tutorials and sample projects on things. I can’t, for the life of me, find any good resources on how to create an Android app which interacts with a real REST service. Just a simple app which talks to some random API to help people see how to write Android apps. An app which just hits an API and throws some decent looking view elements on the display would be great.

In Windows land, typically these resources are plentiful and offer best practices, project layout suggestions, etc. Since Android has a greater market share, I expected to find resources easier, but apparently not. Any help would be appreciated. My current setup is using Android Studio.

At the 9 point you will find the class used for the httpCall. This is just the first one I found looking on Google for “meteo app android tutorial” . It seems good.
