I am planning to build a mobile application which streams data from a server. The data is supposed to be some local news. I should have the flexibility to update the news from an HTML interface. Can someone guide on the best methods to adopt ?
Should i buy some server space from some provider like Amazon Web Services or something.(Any recommendations ?) Just in case the app grows, i guess i might have to increase the number of servers. Will i have to write code accordingly or something ? i am not sure. Is there any recommended scripting for the server side implementation.
Phonegap is probably a good choice. Its an html 5 based app framework that allows you to target multiple platforms including ios and android.
