Connecting app with online database

    Question

  • Hello,

    I have a problem and I'm hoping that you can help me solving it. I want to connect an online database with my windows phone app.  The database would have some data which I want to display in the app, users will be able to rate stuff that are in the database and add some stuff in it. So my problem is that I don't know which database is the best for me to use, a free and a simple one would be great.

    Thank you in advance

  • Hi Otavio,

    According to your description, you want to public your database content, share and collect content from client apps. You will need to build a virtual machine on cloud service, install database instance on it, and use RESTful service to public CRUD operations. Unfortunately, there is no free version of cloud service. You can use your favor search engine to find more cloud service if you want.

    Another option is to use local database, such as sqlite. It’s free but you will need to do more work on data synchronization.

  • Thank you for the answer. I'll go with SQLite, but now I don't understand how am I going to synchronize the data. Example: if a user adds something in his app how am I going to synchronize the entry with other users?
