Connecting Android Apps to REST Interfaces

  • The most interesting apps provide access to online services with a beautiful native user interface. But creating an Android app to access your API is not trivial. The key is creating a seamless experience that hides the complexities of connecting over inconsistent mobile data connections. This presentation will demonstrate Android best practices for connecting to REST APIs while creating a great user experience. Topics covered include keeping your UI snappy, using a database for offline support, optimizing battery life by running only on Wifi, and keeping content fresh using SyncAdapters.
