How to use OpenWeatherMap UV Index
Thank you to Francesco Azzola for the article:
This post describes how to use OpenWeatherMap UV Index. This is an interesting API because we can use it to explore some important aspects of Android and of location-aware APIs. OpenWeatherMap provides this API for free! As you may already know, OpenWeatherMap also provides a full set of APIs about weather information: you can get current weather conditions, forecast, historical information and so on. This information is free, and we can use OpenWeatherMap APIs free of charge.
At the end of this article, we will build an Android app that gets the UV index and shows it using Material Design guidelines.
Before diving into the details of the app, it is useful to have some idea about the UV index.
