Where to store data for an app i am making

Posted 18 October 2012 - 11:21 AM

Hey all for my final year project I have to make a location based service on windows phone. This app will push information to the user depending on their geographical location. Now as the title suggests where am i best to save the information. Say i wanted to push information about a historic site that the user is near, should the information about the site be held on a server? or should the information be store on the phone. I can see benefits and draw backs for both.

Hold data on the phone:
Benefits:

faster retrieval of information.
No data charges from service provider.

Draw backs

a hell of a lot of information to store on a phone.

on a server would be just vise verse of the data on the phone.

so basically i am ask in would way would you hold the information that is to be passed to the user.

Is This A Good Question/Topic? 0
