I've managed (over a very long time) to write a program in VB using Visual Studio 2008. This program is now published to my website and works well.
Probably because people shy away from downloading and running .exe files or due to lack of my understanding of search engines, I don't appear to have had much interest.
I have now decided to convert it to an Android and then, if I can manage to master Android, possibly to iOS.
Having made a start within Android Studio I am finding it very difficult and wondered if I'm missing anything.
I have a .sdf database in the original program which has fixed data and rarely needs modifcation and the data contained within it was taken from an earlier MS Access database.
I have the following two questions, which may need to eventually be independant threads, these are:
- Can I use .sdf database within Android app? (I've looked at SQLite within Android but can't see how to transfer data).
- Is there anything I should be aware of to help make eventual conversion to iOS any more straightforward?
