New course: Build a Weather App
It's super cold in my neck of the woods today. Find out how cold (or warm!) by building your own Android weather app in my latest course: Build a Weather App
In this course we will learn about a very common and important element of Android development: downloading data from the Internet! We will request weather forecast data from a free API provided by forecast.io. We will then parse that data (in JSON format) and display it in a single-page app. We will also see how to handle errors and situations when the network is unavailable.
Hope you enjoy it! When you finish, try your hand at adding location detection with help from my recent blog post: The Beginner's Guide to Location in Android
Also stay tuned for my next project which will build on this and feature ListViews and RecycleViews.
Would it be possible for you to expand on this course using a Service extending LocationListener.
I downloaded the project and released some minor issues
the package name is "teamtreehouse.com.stormy", normally it is "com.teamtreehouse.*"
So far what I worked on, I hope to finish the course tonight! http://i.imgur.com/gMlZxiJ.jpg
Thank you for the work you do! I've come far from what I've learned in your Android Courses. Joining the App development team at Franklin High School and creating small apps for my personal ideas and endeavors!
I really enjoyed this course and I made a few additions onto the app using things I've learned on your other courses. I just have one last problem with location services, since I just couldn't implement the method you describe in the linked article, I looked up a different way to do it and implemented it. If you could check out my question in https://teamtreehouse.com/forum/a-better-method-that-getlastknownlocation and maybe help me out I'd be really grateful!
Keep up the awesome work!
