Hi everyone,

I am new to android development. I have taken courses in java, php/mysql, pl/sql, c++ and html5.

I want to build a macro calculator that has a database of ingredients and also stores favorite meals.

My questions are can I build a personal app to use on my phone without having to go through google play and paying the $25 developer’s fee.

What is the best database to use for andriod?

And can this be a native app with no need for internet connection?

Please advise

Thank you. Every where I read kept talking about putting the finished app up on google play and paying 25$.

SQLite is a widely used database for android.Its very lightweight one and easy to use.And it is the one which has default support by android. You can also use Realm.Which is a new database not just for android. It claims to be a better replacement for SQLite with lesser data access time.
