Downloading your data to your browser from the database.

or 'any' combination of 'any and all' to achieve the 'groups' of data for further manipulation.

This hybrid app has an online member registration using their chosen email address and chosen password.

Thereafter the email address will be the login.

The server will create a user database with capacity to restore lost passwords.

Complete online registration with email and password then bookmark website and/or "Add to Homescreen".

Note this iPhone users!

Instead of keyboarding in your email address every time you log in, try this clever little hack:
Create a keyboard 'shortcut' for your email address in Settings>General>Keyboard>Shortcuts.
I made the shortcut 'zz' for my long email address: steve_grealy@yahoo.com
On the login screen I tap the email field to position the cursor for input, then key 'zz' to fetch the shortcut then
tap the open space at the right hand end of the field to drop the shortcut in and close the field.
Too easy!
Android users will find that their login details can be 'autofill completed' by their phone.
