Latency matters a lot to users, so a local database takes frustration out of the equation. It’s got JSON documents, and the same map/reduce as Couchbase Server, in a pint-sized edition.
Couchbase Lite compiles natively for iOS, Android, Mac OS and .NET. Half a megabyte optimized, for quick launch and snappy user experience on occasionally connected devices when data matters.
