Hi Phil,

Have you come across LiveCloud yet ( LiveCloud is a NoSQL database system designed for LiveCode. Currently LIveCloud is in beta release, but we use it extensively in-house for all our projects. You can sign up and use it for free. Just download the LiveCloud Manager (LCM) from the website to get started.

I'd like to transfer data automatically to a secure server when my app is running and a network connection is available. Does anyone else upload data (text and images) from their LiveCode iOS apps and if so what technique do you use? I note that LibURL isn't available for iOS apps and although there's ftp support on iOS and it looks straightforward I don't think it's secure so I cannot really use that.
