    Hi Saurabh,

    This is a decision that is up to the developer. If you want your data stored on the device, then you can use the device storage. If you are going to use a remote database, then the data would be stored on your mysql server. This means that the device where your app runs has to be constantly connected to internet in order for the request to the remote database to go through. Here is an article that elaborates on such scenario: http://samcroft.co.uk/2012/posting-data-from-a-phonegap-app-to-a-server-using-jquery/.
