Fetch Data from website?

Is it possible to fetch data from a website using andromo?  I need to fetch a string of numbers displayed on a page but a browser window loading the whole page would be too slow.  

Is there any way to do this?

  • The HTML Archive activity will let you embed whatever HTML, Javascript etc that you want. You could certainly do it that way if you have the ability.

  • Do you mean the ability to do this server side? or strictly through coding on the client side?
  • It depends what you want to do. If you already have the server generating the data, then you'd just need to have some HTML & Javascript code that would query the server and do whatever you wanted with it. That's beyond the scope of what we can help you with, but there are lots of great books and websites out there to teach you the skills you'll need.

    This is all based on you saying that displaying just the webpage is too slow. Have you tried that though? Can you make a more mobile friendly webpage on your server instead? That would be quick and easy to do and then embed in your Android app using Andromo's 'website' activity.

    Good luck!
