    Hey all,
    I've been doing some research on my own but don't exactly know which way to go about it.
    I am working on an app that needs to share data between the users. Basically along the lines of comparing the users stats with others, and being able to compare between the two. Potentially I would like to expand to other devices, but if it's easier to stay within iOS then I am fine with that for now.
    I am looking into Parse, SQLite, and UIManagementDocument class but I was hoping to get some quick suggestions and some guidance as to where to do my research.

    Please post links or guides in any suggested directions. I just don't want to waste time researching and learning how to do this just to find out I was taking the least efficient route haha.

    Any information is greatly appreciated!

    How intensive is the information?
    UIManagedDocument is for fairly big data and will sync via iCloud to the same user not share. So it users core data then backed by SQL under that. Documents

    If your data is light and designed to be ranked, have you considered GameCentre?
    or a similar Game social service. There are a stack of third party services that where developed before Apple's game centre that all let you push stat about the user and help you present ranked scores back to the user.

    Thank you for the response, I will definitely look into that! In the mean time I have found more suggestions for parse. I've looked into a bit myself and it seems perfect for the task at hand. I will be sure to do some comparing over the next couple days.
    Thanks again!

    mySQL, JSON,PHP and AFNetworking.

    Works for me. once you get the hang of it, it's pretty universal.
