    Hi
    I have an project , and i am thinking to make a part of it as "Did you know" or like factbook.

    i am thinking to make it UItextview and tow Btns "Next" and "Preveuse" and when one of the btns tapped the text view updated with new info,

    what i need is good advice with conection between textview and the data, i mean , what is best should i use Sql or just text file .

    if any one have a good advice please let me know it.

    sqlite will be faster.
    But first you should learn to spell etc. I will never buy an application with words such as Previous spell as Preveuse. (My opinion)

    Yes, an SQLite database would be the best option. Also, look into CoreData, which was introduced in the 3.0 firmware.

    Completely forgot about that (As i've never looked at it).
    But isn't that for extensive amounts of data, as it is faster?

    CoreData can be thought of as a wrapper for SQLite, although it can also store data in XML or binary format.

    Hi Skylar

    I think i will go with plain text using "componentsSeparatedByString".

    can you point me to good start in this direction.

    thanks
