Hi, Looks like you're passing the wrong url, where is your forecastUrl variable in your scope ? Instead you have an apiUrl variable so... replace them ! Hope that help !

i realized this thanks it was a silly mistake it may be because i copied the code from android studio and pasted it in the work-space but anyways glade you helped me :)
