Google released Android Volley Library around May/June 2013, which has been internally used by Google for some time. It is supposed to provide Fast Networking Operations and also takes care of Threads nicely. If you are unfamiliar with Volley, please see Google I/O 2013 Video
Unfortunately, there is almost no documentation on Volley. So, I put together code snippets on how to make Volley HTTP Requests (GET, POST, PUT, DELETE).
