Network Requests

This week you learned how Android applications can make network requests to load data.

Now you can exercise that by updating your RecyclerView to use data loaded from an internet URL.

Your activity should check the device network status and display a graceful warning if not connected.

Data can be in XML or JSON format.

You can use just the Android SDK, or use Volley for making the request.

Please let me know if you don't have an option for hosting the data file.

Extra credit - update your recycler view to display both text and an image, where the image url is provided in your data feed.
