Access a Google spreadsheet with App Inventor

Accessing a Google spreadsheet is quite easy, but badly documented on the web. A good explanation is given by Taifun on his puravidaapps website: How to use a Google Drive Google Spreadsheet as Database

My solution here is a simplification that only looks at SELECT statements. Also, Google changes its API’s quite often, maybe this example does not use the latest, but I know that it worked in February 2017.

Below is a picture of the very simple spreadsheet I made. You can create a spreadsheet any way you like, creating a .csv file, using Microsoft Office, or  Libre Office, or directly as a Google sheet. Make sure that your final sheet is a Google sheet, otherwise you cannot access it in the right way.
