Should I use core data for this scenario?

    Hi guys,

    I have an app that needs to store thousands of applications. The application data is nothing more than text that gets sent to a web service that loads it into a database or, if internet connection isn't available, written to disk and then uploaded when connection becomes available.

    These applications never need to be accessed, searched, sorted or edited, just stored and uploaded or written to disk.

    Would this scenario be a good candidate for core data? I'm not too familiar with core data but based on cursory readings about it it may be what I need to use.

    Core data adds a lot of overhead to make the job of reading, sorting or editing easier and more objective-c friendly.

    Sounds like it would be complete overkill for what sounds like something that could be handled the way log file are.
