easy website integration?

Hi everyone,

Do you know of any framework/ solution (not necessarily free) that allows to easily interact between iphone and website? My app would be pretty simple (not a game) but would need to communicate data to the website where I could aggregate and publish stats. I would also like to retain control over the app, so nothing like a company that would publish the app instead of me for example..

Such a solution would be something like "shoutem" that I just found online, did anyone try this? (its a bit too expensive for me..)

thanks in advance, any suggestions welcome!

There are some services available for certain things.

What sort of data do you want to communicate to the server?

Very simple data actually, just the outcome of a game between two players, the real interesting part will be the analysis of the data on the website

now that i think of it, something like flurry maybe sufficient for that..I'll let you know how it goes..
