    For those of you with experience with mobile apps and using dynamic data, what is the best practices approach to data binding.  Take a stock ticker, for example, there will be data changing constantly.  Is it better to query the new data via a web api, or web service, or download a snapshot of the data and use local sqlLite to render screens.  Thanks in advance?

    I would say that if you want the chart to be continuously changing your best approach would be to use SignalR, as it will give you a persistent connection between your browser and your server and allow you to call javascript methods (like adding points to the chart) from your server into your browser. It was built specifically for dealing with scenarios like what you are describing.
