My application needs content pre-loaded into a sqlite database before it is first used. Currently it is making jquery calls to load a bunch of json from the server and saved to the sqlite database when it is first loaded. There is an initial loading screen with a progress bar and it takes quite a while to load all the content. Performance and user experience could be better.
Any suggestions on strategies to initialize and pre-populate data sets for an app? Any advice or gotchas to look for? Sure wish I could install the app with a pre-loaded database but Idon't think this is possible.
What is the best way to approach this?
