Hi guys,

I'm implementing tags in an android application, need some pointers on the following:
  • schema design for a user-configurable, multi-tag setup
  • how to optimise the schema for search, filtering and simplicity. 
Note that I've already looked at some designs that focus on bigger server-like deployments, I'm looking for something that is simple and works for a single table in a mobile (SQLITE) environment.

On first thought, I'm thinking of using a character separated varchar to represent the associated tags like so #work#meeting#monthly. Any better ways to do this? Have any of you done this before?
