    Default Storing information online from Android App - without my own server

    Hi, I'm new to Android development. I am creating an app for a high school project which basically involves logging in through Facebook, and then creating a profile to use the app's features. The profile is not very detailed and all of the information can be stored in a *.txt file; however, the problem is that the data cannot be stored locally on the device for various reasons. For one, it's an app with interaction between people. I have figured out how to make most of this work, however I have run into a couple of problems, the biggest of which is that I don't know how to store a text file online. I was hoping there was some way with the Facebook SDK to upload a text file to the user's Facebook account which the app could then access. However it appears the Facebook SDK does not provide a way to do this. I don't have my own server to store the files on. If anyone has any suggestions, that would be great. Thanks.

    Reinvent the wheel with some crazy hack or get your own server... seems like a simple choice to me. Especially considering that server software is free and you could probably host it yourself for a small school project.
    Get in the habit of using standard Java naming conventions!

    I was pretty much thinking that, but I didn't want to deal with it. Oh well, thanks for the answer.
