CouchDB for Android. iPhone Next?

CouchDB got quite some press with the announcement of CouchOne Mobile[1]. In the light of the changes in Apple policy[2], I am wondering if the iDevices (iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch) are next.

Anyway, I think there are additional ingredients to be added to the mix to make CouchOne Mobile see some traction:

  1. becoming rock solid. It is in direct competition with tools like SQLite which are rock solid
  2. there will be tons of applications that would require synchronization with remote servers. Remember, CouchDB strongest point is replication.
  3. there will be some good and cheap CouchDB hosting providers. When you sell $1.99 apps, you’ll not pay tons of dollars for hosting.

Update: while this comment from ☞ Damien Katz about CounchDB coming to iOS is pre Apple policy change, it is a good sign that Couchio CouchOne is trying to get it working as soon as possible:

Aaron Miller and I got Erlang booting up on iOS. CouchDB coming to an Apple device near you.

Update: Six month later iOS Mobile Couchbase is here.

  1. Just perform a Google search after ☞ couchone mobile and pick one of the results (they are all the same) to read the announcement.  ()
  2. John Gruber has a nice coverage of the changes ☞ here  ()
