Hi Nicolas,

It is all possible, and you may use any framework you want.

I suggest you learn about RESTful, this is the way to call to a remote database from a mobile app. You may not need php at all.

Some tools that you could use:

http://phprestsql.sourceforge.net

Because you talk about php, I think this may be an easy starting point, I never tested it.

www.dreamfactory.com

Open source tool that generates a complete REST api for several databases, including MySQL and some NoSQL.

I used it a lot with XDK.

But the very first step is to understand that in your mobile app you don't have php, so if you come form web php+MySQL development you need to change the way you work. Learn about REST.

Good luck,

Diego
