Recently I got an idea for a mobile app which has sparked my motivation to learn how to make apps for Android. So I headed to the developer page and downloaded Android Studio. It’s been so long since I attempted programming anything for Android, the last time I did it was still done with ADT and Eclipse. So I’m pretty much starting at square one here. Unfortunately I ran into several problems just trying to get a simple “Hello World!” app to build and run. I could probably write a post just about setting that up.
The first test program I wanted to do was to try reading data from a website. The front page of Reddit seemed like a good candidate, so I went for that.
