Building a Weather App


One of my recent projects required me to build a weather app that would work with an API of my choice. This was my first introduction to working with a weather API, so I knew there was going to be a steep learning curve, but I was excited about the chance to finally get some practical application of B4A and build a working product.

After doing a little research and seeing some comments from other programmers, I decided to use the OpenWeatherMap API. Setting up an account was as easy as it could be and their free accounts allow up to 7,200 calls per day and limit calls per minute to 60. This obviously wouldn't be ideal for a high-traffic product.
