I have been developing an app that uses Firebase for Authentication, Database and storage. My biggest concern so far has been that fact that in my app it is requesting a lot of data from the database...

I have expandable list views that work with data from the database.

i am also struggling with requests, requesting information from Firebase database.

the information in the database is not that much, and I was thinking to store the database on the phone with an updates to a secure server once a day or so to minimize traffic.

any advice please ... looking to secure my data, update it online easily, easy to use...

what database would you recommend.. I know of mySQL, Realm, any other suggestions?

Thanks guys

The obvious choice for an on-device DB would be the built-in SQLite. In the early days of Android it was cumbersome to use, but these days there are many libraries out there that make dealing with it relatively hassle-free. I'd say one would need a very good reason not to use that.
