Hi,

I am porting a mobile application which currently runs on Windows Phone and Android to iOS.  I am using MonoTouch and I have previously used Mono for Android.

I have items of data which I need to store - for example I read an XML file from the server which defines a number of 'jobs'.  I create Job objects from the XML and then save the job objects to IsolatedStorage using the IsolatedStorageSettings object.

Unfortruantely IsolatedStorageSettyings does not exist under MonoTouch apparently so I need an alternative.  I guess I could serialize the objects back to XML and store as files but the IsolatedStorageSettings was much cleaner as I didn't need toi woory about the underlying mechanisms and it was portable.  Any suggestions please.

I'm not sure what its called in mono touch but you can do one of two things.  Interact directly with a SQLite data store or google mono touch core data persistence.
