Problem pulling json file

Ng-repeat is working here on my mark up

angular.module("todoListApp", []) .controller("mainCtrl",function($scope, dataService){ $scope.todos = [
{"name": "clean the shop"},
{"name": "finish angular app"}, {"name": "update css"}, {"name": "finish thank you page"}, {"name": "make queriy calculator responsive"}, {"name": "clean urls"} ]; })

But here it is not working when the array is in a json file

angular.module("todoListApp", []) .controller("mainCtrl",function($scope, dataService){

dataService.getTodos(function(response){ console.log(response.data); $scope.todos = response.data;


}) .service('dataService', function($http){ this.getTodos = function(callback){ $http.get('mock/todos.json') .then(callback) } });

change url of geting files with this... this.getTodos = $http.get('scripts/mock/todos.json')

reading files is starting from index.html not from app.js
