I am working on Android app for locating food places in my city. Using Google Map v2 api.
App shows user his current location, and the closest food spots around him.
I want to store location coordinates in an online database, and App should retrieve data in JSON format from db to phone. I am familiar with PHP and MySql.
Which database should i use to store locations ? Is MySql good for that purpose ? How will i store location data in it?
