Reading data from remote XML via HTTPClient

The ability to consume and display feed data from the Internet, via RSS feeds or alternate APIs, is the cornerstone of many mobile applications. More importantly, many services that you may wish to integrate into your app will probably require you to do this at some point, so it is vital to understand and be able to implement remote data feeds and XML. Our first recipe in this chapter introduces some new functionality within Titanium to help facilitate this need.

If you are intending to follow the entire chapter and build the MyRecipes app, then pay careful attention to the Getting Ready section for this recipe, as it'll guide you through setting up the project.
