Asynchronous Http Client for Android

An asynchronous, callback-based Http client for Android built on top of Apache's HttpClient libraries.


  • Make asynchronous HTTP requests, handle responses in anonymous callbacks
  • HTTP requests happen outside the UI thread
  • Requests use a threadpool to cap concurrent resource usage
  • GET/POST/PUT/PATCH params builder (RequestParams)
  • Multipart file uploads with no additional third party libraries
  • Tiny size overhead to your application, only 19kb for everything
  • Automatic smart request retries optimized for spotty mobile connections
  • Automatic gzip response decoding support for super-fast requests
  • Optional built-in response parsing into JSON (JsonHttpResponseHandler)
  • Optional persistent cookie store, saves cookies into your app's SharedPreferences

Documentation, Features and Examples

Full details and documentation can be found on the project page here:

Installation notes

If you want to use the HTTP PATCH-methods you have to include the httpclient-4.2.2.jar or newer. This makes the required HttpPatch-class available to the library as this class is not included by default on Android.

Note that all other HTTP methods are available without adding the httpclient to your project.

Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
