Aeris Android Weather SDK v1.1.1

Version 1.1.1 of the Aeris Android Weather SDK is now available. This version of the SDK includes access to additional endpoints like observation/summary and new data attributes like Ultraviolet Index forecasts.  Read on for highlights of the  new data waiting to enhance your Android weather applications!

Updated Endpoints, More Better

Since our last update the Aeris Weather API team has continued to add and expand our endpoints to their arsenal of weather data. This update of the  Android SDK provides streamlined access to these enhanced data sets for Android developers.

Updated endpoints include:

Forecasts

The following attributes are now available as properties within the forecast object:

  • ice accumulation
  • min and max humidity
  • min, max and average feelslike and dewpoint
  • UVI (the ultraviolet index, an integer from 0-12)
  • 80 meter winds (wind data at a height of 80 meters above the ground)

Observations

The following attributes are now available as properties within the observations/recent and observations/archive request objects:

  • mean sea level pressure
  • station pressure
  • altimeter
  • sky conditions
  • precipitation
  • solar radiation
  • light

New to the Aeris Android Weather SDK: Observation Summary

The observations/summary endpoint provides access to daily summaries for a given location or observation station. This includes observed min/max/avg temperatures, dewpoints, wind speeds and precipitation totals. Review the observations/summary endpoint for the full details about the data available.

Review the Javadocs for the observation/summary endpoint for use with the Aeris Android SDK: loaders/ObservationSummaryTask

To get you started, here is a quick example of implementing the observations/summary endpoint and using some of the data returned:
