What's the best strategy to deploy sizeable data on-demand.

    General discussion

  • I have a few GBs of data for the app. But the app doesn't need all the data at once. Rather it'll be a on-demand basis. It's a map app. The user may only use maps of a small area. So I don't want to deploy all the data with the app. Rather, the app will download the data as needed.

    What do you guys think is the best infrastructure? I would store them on my skydrive. But the app can't access skydrive without involving a filepicker (I don't want user interaction).

    A USB drive isn't ideal either. I want to port the app to Windows Phone.

    Ideas? Thanks.

  • Maybe you can give an option to the user to select a particular region of maps to download and only download map content for that region.
