Excuse me if this sounds like a super noobish question, i've never worked with ArcGIS Online before and have little iOS knowledge.
I have an ArcGIS Online database storing information about houses. Typical stuff, name, address, etc.
I have an iOS app that displays the map, using the portal login/oauth login examples.
I want to edit the information in the database from the app.
I somewhat understand the feature layer concept but not totally. I saw the FeatureLayer Editing example and was going to jump into implementing that but thought about just database queries.
Without adding a FeatureLayer to my app, can i simple query the database for information, and edit the table field values?
I don't ever need to add a new house, or edit the geometry, just the data about it. To my understanding this isnt in the FeatureLayer.
I thought by getting the data from the database tables, and just setting the values with the changes would work.
Any help would be appreciated.
