    Hello,

    Has the API used in the Stores view of the Jitterz sample been withdrawn?  I always get the error "Error loading locations" when opening that link in the simulator. In the debugger, the url to get location data resolves to "http://www.starbucks.com/api/location.ashx?&features=&lat=xx.71455001831055&long=-xx.00711822509766&limit=50" (I added the xx's so my enemies can't find me.)  In the browser, that request, and all similar requests, returns an empty page.

    If the API isn't used any more, is the starbucksTest.json file referred to in the source code available? It would be really nice to see that example working and I don't have a clue what that data should look like.

    Thank you!

    Kelly

    Hi Kelly,

    You see the "Error loading locations" error because StarBucks no longer have a publicly available API that we can use for requests. The starbucksTest.json file you refer to was used for local testing when the app was initially created and is no longer available (in fact this code should not have surfaced in the app itself). We would modify the sample to use a local json file with some hardcoded locations with the next samples update.

    Your Telerik points have been updated for bringing this to our attention.

    Hi Kelly,

    This is a quick follow up to let you know that the sample has been updated as promised. You can clone it again and review the new implementation.
