Ref Library

RefLib is an Android application that displays and manages a collection of datasets. It provides a simple interface to access data, load new datasets from the web and manage how they are displayed. Each dataset can contain anything from reference data to a personal list, currently available datasets include lists of the US Presidents, the World's Airports and the 300 biggest grossing Films of all time.

Once the data has been loaded the software does not require an active connection. So important ref data can be available at any time.

Using freely available software users can process CSV files to display any simple data that is valuable to them.

It is intended to show the steps required to create the SQLite data that RefLib relies on. The CSV file that this script works on is also available.
