Using SQLite with NimbleKit
I am excited to be working on an iOS project for a client that uses an SQLite database to store data locally on an iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad (note that this is also a universal app). The app is a mobile resource for pregnant mothers, and the screenshot above shows the Labor Log screen that allows her to record the frequency and length of her contractions before giving birth. This data, along with any comments, is stored right on the device; no internet connection is required.
For designers and developers with database experience, NimbleKit’s support of SQLite is fantastic. And at some point, I hope to share an expanded article about this topic and have my project collaborator explain how the database works (I’m not a database developer). Meanwhile, if you already know SQLite or have an interest in learning it, I hope this project example gets you excited about the possibilities of storing data locally in your iOS app!
