JSON Question

How to obtain and convert custom json data as strings in android

I've googled around and found many tutorials(duplicates) and tips about json for android, but I find it difficult to perceive. I find it hard to get the score and the names as strings from the following json that I've retrieved from my database. I tried to get the result object first and get the names and scores but not certain how I can get manage to get it from [{},{}].

Are there some easy examples or tips? It sounds silly, but I need your help. I would like to hear from you!

"result": [
"id": "3",
"name": "Bobby",
"score": "44"
"id": "2",
"name": "Mike",
"score": "10"

String s = "{"result": [{"id": "3","name": "Bobby","score": "44"},{"id": "2","name": "Mike","score": "10"}]}";  

JSONObject jsonObject = new JSONObject(s);
JSONArray result= jsonObject .getJSONArray("result");

for(int i = 0; i < result.length(); i++) {
    JSONObject json = result.getJSONObject(i);
    String name = json.getString("name");
    String score = json.getString("score");
