    On a pc I use the registry to store user preferred settings. How do I store settings on an app created with B4A for an app? Is this done by storing a file like a .ini file or a text file (csv) and read into the app when the users opens it up?

    Note that KeyValueStore is a more powerful option for storing data.

    I personally use RandomAccessFile and store app settings in the .dat file that it helps me to creates.

    I use a map with a file backend, thinly encapsulated in a setting class.

    On PC, I use a local ini-file. Much easier to maintain, move and hand edit (compared to registry).

    After looking at the two options the KeyValueStore is the better option altough the other (statemanager) will come in handy for what it does. ;)
