I'm just starting into mobile programming and have a basic application that I want to write.
The application I have in mind is this
1. a simple form to record a task, a start and end time.
2. the ability to store this data on the device
3. the ability to send/update this information to a server.
4. the ability to update the list of tasks from the server.
The basic app is, I think, relatively straightforward, but I need advice on the following;
How best to store the data on the device - text, xml, Database (oracle, MS, other).
How to enable the reliable and safe exchange of data between multiple devices and server.
Anything I haven't thought of.
I shall be adding more to the app, as time goes by, but I think this foundation will be crucial to stability and future development.
Thanks for all advice.
