    How best way (and simplest) to synchronize SQLite?
    I have a small app that uses SQLite. It would be nice if he sincronize data with a service so that the user could use it on any device.

    Anyone had any experience trying services?

    Create my own?

    Thank you.

    If the database is not too large and will never be updated on multiple devices at once (which will require a more complicated synchronization) then you just need to copy the database file from one device to another.

    Dropbox Sync is a good solution for this requirement however this API will be removed by Dropbox next year so I don't recommend using it for new projects.
    A simple solution that will require no backend at all is to let the user send the database by email.
