    Is there a way to structure an app to address the following issue:

    The app is running > Lets say it crashes or a user needs to uninstall the app for some reason > the user reinstalls the app.

    Is there a way to structure the app in such a way that the data is saved locally from the first install of the app is and is available to the second install of the app?

    Any direction or links are greatly appreciated.

    Store a file that can be backed up with iTunes, maybe? Or make a file that the app can export / import via mail?

    If they delete the app, the data will go with it. The only solution that doesn't involve any extra work on the user's part is to store the data in iCloud or something similar.
