There are many times when your Android app will need to fetch data from the internet, to provide users with fresh information. In this course, Building Your First Connected App with Android Studio, you'll learn how to make your Android app connect to a web service and retrieve JSON data from the web. First, you'll connect to the Google Books API to make searches and retrieve book titles, covers and detailed information about your favorite books.

Then, you'll discover how to parse JSON content and correctly use a RecyclerView. Finally, you'll see the Google data binding library in action, and how to use Parcelable classes in order to obtain greater speed of execution. By the end of this course, you'll have a better understanding on how to build your first connected app with Android Studio.

There are many times when your Android app will need to fetch data from the internet, to provide users with fresh information. In this course, you'll see how to use a web API from your Android app and present data to your users. You will build a fully functional app from scratch, and you'll connect to the Google Books API and retrieve data from there. Everything you need is Android Studio. Some of the major topics that we'll cover include connecting to the internet, parsing JSON content, downloading images with a Picasso library, saving data with shared preferences, and an introduction to the data binding library. By the end of this course, you'll have a clear knowledge of the steps involved in creating a production-ready app that connects to a web service.
