Async network requests with Retrofit: Android Development: Concurrent Programming

Making web service calls to RESTful web services can take quite a bit of code, but there are some great tools available that can make it a lot easier.

Retrofit lets you define web service locations and syntax in simple Java interfaces, and then handle web requests asynchronously without having to create your own threads or AsyncTask objects.
