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 Aeris API endpoints. These include observation/summary and new data attributes like Ultraviolet Index forecasts. So read on for highlights of the new data waiting to enhance your Android weather applications!

Updated Endpoints

Forecasts

So first up is the Forecasts endpoint. 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

Next we have the Observations endpoint. 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

So next let’s check out the Observations Summary endpoint. It provides access to daily totals for your location or an observation station. The data we get back includes things like observed min, max and avg temps and dew points. Also you can get wind speeds and precip totals, and lots more. Check out the Observations Summary endpoint for full details about all the data you can get from this endpoint. Also, more info can be found in the Javadocs for the Observation Summary endpoint at loaders/ObservationSummaryTask.

And then to get you started, here’s some example code. Below we’ll call the obs summary endpoint and show how to use some of the data.

Let’s Get Started!

We hope you enjoy the new version and can’t wait to see what you make next!
