    .....but much more likely talking about a nice litte (server-based) earner located at.......guess.......Couchbase!!!!

      I'm more familiar with the open source Apache CouchDB project, but think the ideas are similar enough to hazard a guess at how it would work.

      Mobile clients would likely connect to a central server, which could be self-hosted somewhere. Watch for updates, and sync up any new items from the mobile side, which the central server could then replicate to any other mobile clients.

      Couchbase seems to have a bunch of information on their site though, perhaps more useful to read there than make strangely worded implications above.

        Yeah, so *not* peer to peer, as the other AC says.
