I have a list of 175 items that I need to store somewhere for the lifetime of the app. I couldn't find an API that could provide me with this list of items, hence I would need to store it somewhere in the app. I could hardcode these values, but I think 175 is a big number and would be better to store somewhere in a file maybe. I can also use SQLite I guess, but it's a very basic small app and I don't wish to make it heavy using SQLite. My app would read this list and store it in an array before displaying on the UITableView. I was going through the data-storage options on Apple's site(https://developer.apple.com/icloud/documentation/data-storage/index.html) and looks like I could use the 2nd option of storing file in Cache directory since it doesn't even need a backup. Which other options do you guys think I could use? My app would just read the list and not perform any add/modify/delete actions on it.
