Build a Twitter Search App for Android: Project Setup

This two-part tutorial series will introduce you to the fundamentals of working with RESTful web services using the Android SDK. Along the way, you'll learn how to perform searches against the public Twitter API!

It goes without saying that Internet access is one of the main assets you can exploit in Android devices. Many popular sites and social networks use Web services to provide access to their data, often using architectural models such as REST (Representational State Transfer). Twitter is one such service, with various APIs for accessing tweets and timelines. In this two-part series we will use the Twitter Search API to fetch recent tweets on a search term chosen by the user.

In this first part we will capture the user input and build the URL to use in an HTTP request to the Twitter search URL for tweets on the input term. In the second part we will retrieve the results, which will be formatted in JSON. We will parse the returned JSON tweet feed and display it within a simple visual interface.
