Hi, I need to create an application where the end user will enter data and it will be captured into a database. My development platform will be Apple's Objective C and Cocoa Touch. However, one of the requirements for the application is that a .NET version be developed at a later date so that non-Mac users can also have a PC version.
The contents of the database will be text based data and some images. The application will also need to be network capable, so that users in different locations can input data and it will all end up in one central repository.
My question is; what type of database should I use? - I would much rather use something that is openly available. In other words, I wouldn't want my end users to have to go out an purchase a database application suite specifically to use with my application.
I currently have at my disposal, MS Access and I'm sure I can download the free version of SQL, but is there a better choice? - I'm sure there is...
Thanks you for your assistance,
