    Android application

    My application is in vb.net (2008) with a centralized MySQL Database. I need to create a small report to be viewed in mobile phone (only selected people) .
    How to do this ?

    That depends.
    If you want to do an android app (as you write on the title)
    Then you need to program - transfer your code in android.
    If you want to pass through the report to people then you can convert it to something like pdf and view it on android.
    Slow as hell.

    Re: Android application

    These days, doing such a thing is usually done via a web page. You could also make an Android app that connected to a web service of your design, and used that. Of course, either way will have some security implications if you don't want the data to be available to everybody. That security part may be a bigger issue than the report. With an Android app rather than a web page, you might have more security options if you are willing to only allow specific people to have the application. On the other hand, if the application is to be installed from a web site, then you have a bigger security consideration.

    If its a file you are trying to share, you can look into something like Drop Box's .NET Api and upload to there, and have it password protected. https://www.dropbox.com/developers/documentation/dotnet

    An Android app is a software application running on the Android platform. Because the Android platform is built for mobile devices, a typical Android app is designed for a smartphone or a tablet PC running on the Android OS.Every phone has its own features.
