Hello Shawn,
Does the Import feature copies all the data into the phone's memory or 
it will leave the data  in the original location?
When you say that the file of 15MB may be slow; do you think this is the 
case even with fast phones like Nokia N95?
I know that, for example, Nokia Maps app reads quite huge maps, 
(consisting of a lot of small files) sometimes the size of 70 MB. Does 
Loadstone reads its databases in one go and hence the slowness?

Thanks a lot,
