Parse JSON Data with App Inventor This is the first video in a series in which we will make a professional weather app for Android. In this video I will show how to parse JSON Data with App Inventor. I also cover the App Inventor Web component, using Location Sensor, converting JSON data into an App Inventor List and much more.

I pull all the weather data from If you want international weather data I’d use the JSON feed from the Weather Underground. All of the blocks follow the video.

    Thanks again for this great tutorial!
    I had a problem but I solved it on my own :D. Appereantly some countries get a comma instead of a dot so the url wont work. I changed my mobile languages to english and it worked. The following countries use a comma instead of a dot: Bahase Indonesia, Deutsch (Γ–sterreich), Deutsch (Deutschland), Espanol (Argentina), Francais (France), Dansk, Nederlands (Nederland).
