Hi experts,

I need to create a database that can be used by iOS application (iPad, iPhone) and .NET application.
My first approach was to use SQLite with dropbox but the file is always replaced by the last who do some operation with the database.

That's why i try to find a solution, a database stored in the cloud that can be used with iOS device and .NET application on Windows systems.

Thank you,

Kind Regards.

Hi Thank you for the response but what i meant by .NET application is that i have to create both iOS and .NET client application that use a common database

eg :

ios app => cloud => database
.net => cloud => database


Then to make a cross platform application you could use a web based application. Then in iOS and .Net you would only need a webbrowser.  Then you could use the app on other operating systems as well.


Of course, but what about the common database?
i need a free solution in the cloud like dropbox for instance.
what i want to do is a free unified system (client application + database + cloud service (dropbox))
