Mehring — WebAPI – Weather

For the WebAPI assignment I found a website (yahoo) that gives you the weather for an area code if you simply insert the correct zip into the url.

http://query.yahooapis.com/v1/public/yql?q=select%20item%20from%20weather.forecast%20where%20location%3D%2248907%22&format=json

In the url 48907 is the zip code.

 

The UI is simple enough, it just dynamically updates after you enter a zip code and hit get weather!

              

 

The most useful thing I learned doing this was AsyncTask.  While we already did it in class, I never played with it any more than the group in class activity.  It was very helpful when I dove in and got my hands dirty.
