Whats up guys!

I am new to android and I need to know what is the best way to connect to an external database that is already on a server, and I have a few more questions:

1- The Sqlite is a native feature of Android, so it is the best choice for internal connections correct? And for external connections as well?

2- Is it true that for embebed connections is better to use the Sqlite and external connections is better to use PHP + SQL?

3- What are the best ways of external connections you know for Android?

4 What are the best ways of internal connections you know for Android?

Thank you very much! Let's spread knowledge!
Peace for all!

1- Probably. Though, it is just a guess based on the support from the code and the users.

Marvin, you want to sync also the DB you have as local and the one that will be on the server so that the use can use the app offline right?
