[erlang-questions] Android and Erlang Data transfer

Hello everyone,

What do you think I should use to transfer data between Android and an
Erlang Server? I think a good approach would be Sockets + Protobuff, but I
feel overwhelmed by the myriad of options out there (json, msgpack, thrift,
bert, ubf, ...).

I read some old threads in the list, but they are too old. I agree with an
old Joe's comment about saving as much bandwidth you can, but I'm not sure
how stable are programs like basho/protobuff and msgpack for erlang. It
seems they don't evolve much in the last two years.

Any though about this would be appreciated.

Gustavo
