RoboSpice Motivations is a Demo app of RoboSpice.

RoboSpice is an Open Source Android Library that eases writing asynchronous network requests.

GitHub repo : https://github.com/octo-online/robospice

RoboSpice motivations is an in-depth look at Android features related to asynchronous background tasks execution. This will explain :
* Why AsyncTasks are basically flawed
* Why Loaders work well, and why they don't fit when it comes to networking
* The basics of RoboSpice capabilities

This app is largely inspired by various questions on Stack Over Flow and aims to be a pedagogical introduction to RoboSpice, a brand new way to write asynchronous network requests.

    Great demo to learn about asynchronous operations in Android. Although the app is not showing up Twitter output, I'll rate 5 stars anyway because of the awesome information about Android async frameworks.

    Great work, and even more importantly - great explanations on the downfalls of asynctask and loaders for networking. This library will be a must-have in all projets moving forward.

    Most backend demo apps demonstrated the API and assumed you know why the library is useful. Robospice goes further and tells you why this library is useful.

    This is a really great demonstration for async tools in Android. It answered my questions, and then some.
