Generalmobile development and database hosting choices Pin

Development related, but not a development question:

I want to write a mobile app that will require a database and also use the device's realtime GPS location. I could write it easily as a C# WinForms app, using a SQL server that I managed, but am having trouble deciding on the tech to use for mobile development. And honestly, I just want to get coding.

Should I build it out this way first, then try to convert it over to a mobile app, even ditching C# for java or c? -(I know Java, I would be willing to learn C) Or is it not worth it to hash out a proof of concept to get the logic down first?

Secondly, what are my database hosting options, any speaking from experience? I have experience with SQL and some with CouchDB. I have no problem moving over to NoSQL for this, too.

Open to any most input.

[PS] Not really open to Mono. License is a little pricey, and I'm partially doing this project for future job prospects, of which I see less and less for Mono.
