However through my application, it gives me a UnknownHostException saying host is unresolved at

For the benefit of other learners, this error is most likely caused by a bug in the emulator software. Restart the emulator and try to connect to the api again.

Look towards the top of the emulator screen and check that the emulator has network connectivity.

If the emulator does not have connectivity, UnknownHostException appears to be thrown.
