Hello all
My mobile app is used for inventory taking , using multiple android devices.
Is there a way to store basic app settings locally, (text file). When the app is reopened I want to populate the department, user id, location, control parameters. At the moment I cannot do this and each time the app is closed \ minimised the settings are lost and have to be rekeyed. I cannot find a unique device id to enable me to store the device settings on the Lianja server.

Thank you
Paudie Walsh

Hi Paudie,

you could store all that info into a database table in the server.

If if you are building your app as a phonegap app you can get a unique device id in the ready delegate and then call a proc on the server to lookup the info you need. If there is no data for that device Id then create a new record.
