Import JSON file/data from a remote server into Windows 8 app


  • I've been all over the place trying to figure out how to load a remote JSON file into my Windows 8 app and I can't figure it out. I don't know if I'm missing something here. I've found tutorials on accomplishing this in C# based applications, but my app is in HTML/JavaScript and I'd like to stick with that.

    I have set up scripts on my server to collect data and output it in JSON format. Now I need to be able to access that data from my app. The data changes on a daily basis and doesn't need to be updated every time I open my app, just once a day.

    As a side note, I'm new to using JSON data and Visual Studio.

    I can provide more information if needed. Any help would be muchly appreciated! :D
