Need to know the best backend DB or framework to store and modify the data when it's required after app released.

I need to store data for a grocery store app and the grocery store owner should be able to change or add any item even after the app released. which DB or framework would be the best option to store the data ? Ex : Let's say the app has 3 items in a tableView when it's released and I would like to add one more item after the app was released . How can I do that ?

I have also used Parse a lot and it is really easy to use. I think you will like it a lot.

Your example is easy to do in Parse because you can just add classes / objects such as an array and you can easily add more data. Parse also has a great web interface that makes adding data super simple and easy. Now link the table in your app to the data in Parse and voila, you are all set.

It's hard to pinpoint the best, but I find Parse.com to be very flexible, fast, and easy to use. You can set the dataSource of your tableView to be an array, and refresh that array fetching data from Parse every time viewDidAppear is called.
