In this post, I will be discussing on how to create Android application to check if the username typed by user is available to choose or not.

When it comes to Username availability check, I always remember Google registration page where it checks for the username availability once you finished typing username and moved to next form control and also it updates the User whether the Username is available to pick or not.

In this post, I am going to explain how to sync data present in remote MySQL DB to Android SQLite database. The data present in the remote MySQL DB (or any Database) needs to be synced with SQLite DB in Android in order to maintain the data integrity.
