    Hello all,

    I was just wondering if anyone has experience with developing a user generated content based app?

    I am working with a group of other students (undergrads) this summer on an app to help students schedule study groups with course lookup, RSVP, and other useful features. We are all pretty inexperienced as far as iOS developing, but have C++ experience.

    I am guessing that we need to use PHP to setup a database that allows the app to fetch and post content. We have the funds to buy a dedicated server to run the database from the campus's network. I searched on Google for awhile and came up empty-handed, nothing specifically targeted towards databases for handling UGC for iOS. Are there any open source solutions? We expect to put a ton of time into this, so we aren't afraid to read some books on iOS development (not lazy). Also, this will be a free app.

    Thanks in advance,

    - Cory

    For the backend I'd recommend CakePHP it's pretty handy. Then for the app you'll be dealing with a bunch of UITableViews and NSURLConnections I'd expect.
