Newbie and hoping I'm not asking dumb questions!


Oct 29, 2014
Hi - I must be one of the only people around without a tablet, but am going to buy one! In the meantime, I use someone else's!

I have a couple of questions regarding apps for android - I really hope you can help.
I have an idea for an app for my hobby group - I want to create a database (un-editable template) that people can enter their own data into. Possibly using Memento. Is that possible?

Secondly, IF I can do that, what file format are apps in? I am not tekkie, but am used to moving PDFs around on memory sticks, emails etc - is that possible with an app? So if I could create this database, could I move it to friends via emails, or sell it from a blog or website? I wouldn't want to get involved with the large apps stores.

Looking forward to your comments - many thanks! (Now got to browse the forums to choose a tablet!!)

Can't help you with your app question, but I'm sure that some of the more knowledgeable folks may be able to answer it.
Can say "Welcome Aboard". Good to have you.
