When you want to save data on a device in an Android app, the first technology most developers use is SQLite. Support for SQLite is included in the Android SDK, and Google provides plenty of support for using it in the form of helper APIs, documentation, and examples. And the new architecture components that were introduced at Google I/O 2017 include the ROOM library, which makes it easier than ever before to define a database structure and work with data in SQLite.
