I am in the process of making an iPhone app. It will have a Calendar of Events and a Phone Directory. How would I access the web server to get the database info?
The flow of the Calendar would be:
Home Screen > Event Categories > SubCategories (if needed) > Today's Events with a button to go forward or backwards in the events > Event Detail
We thought about pulling an XML file of everything in the Calendar, but that file could get pretty big and cause the app to run slow. I have since been researching REST web services to output only the info we need for each view in XML. Would this be what I would need? If so, how do you create one in PHP and MySQL? I haven't found an online tutorial that could teach me how.
