Suppose you have tens of thousands of records or more.
A really bad way, I guess, would be to include a text or xml file and import it; this could take a very, very long time the first time the app is started.
A better way would be to include a dump of the database, and import that. Much faster, I guess, but it may still take a long time the first time, and after that the phone would have two copies, the dump and the live one, so it seems bad storage wise.
Would that be the best way? What am I missing?
