share data between phones

    Question

  • If two phones both install the same app, then how to share the data from one phone to the other phone?

    I am creating a record management app, and when I want to share one record in the app to anther phone(actually the app) which has installed this app, hence, that phone can added the same record automatically without doing an add record action by the user.

    Thanks.

  • Assuming that the two phones belong to different people and aren't on the same account (in which case you can roam the data) the best way is to go through the cloud. The phones can each store and read data from the same online service.

    Azure Mobile Services are one good way to do this. See http://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/services/mobile-services/ to get started.
