Please do not post the same thing multiple times. The board software automatically flags certain posts as needing moderator attention. This happens the most often for new users. I'm pretty sure this is made clear at the time you attempt to post. Posting the same thing over and over again just makes that many more posts the moderators have to weed through later. This makes us sad. Don't make us sad. If your post/thread doesn't appear, just wait a while. Don't post it again. If it hasn't shown up by the next day, then you can try again. I normally go through posts in the mornings, and try to check a few times throughout the day, but I'm not here 24/7. There will typically be a significant delay before posts are approved. Just be patient.
Whats the best alternative for a Plist that works across platforms?
I have an app im working on that is highly customisable by the end user, all the customisations are saved into a plist file and stored on a web server. this plist file contains many dictionaries, arrays and strings. everything from app colors, fonts, screens, menus, etc etc.
I will be creating an android version of this app, and possibly windows and other platforms. I need the data file on the server to be read by the other apps, android, windows etc, as well as they must be able to write to the file and upload to the server.
Ive used a plist file becuase its what im familiar with, and its so easy to work with. now before i get too deep into this iphone app, and before android work starts happening, I would like to finalise the file type.
Can android/windows etc read/write to plist or is it an apple only file type? if it can stay as plist I would be quite happy haha.
My thought was to convert the plist to json and save it as a string in a file. and reverse, download the json string file fron the server, convert the json string to an array (the root type of my plist file). Is this OK or is there any better ways?
