    Hi all,

    I am currently working on an application with a lot of editText objects (around 20) it all works great however upon exiting the fragment which holds the editText, or exiting the application all text is lost.

    How would I go about saving the values until the application is shutdown or the user overrides those? Would I be using sharedpreferences or any other method?

    Thanks in advance,

    For simple key/value data, then shared preferences is probably the way to do it.

    The other option would be using a database, but that is generally for more complex data structures and relationships, and for your case would probably be overkill.

    Hmm I'll find a way to use shared preferenes then :)
    Thanks LV
