Read/write database data from an Android Application?

Hi, first I want to clarify that I am new around here and I do not know if it is the right place to ask this.

I would like to make an Android application to interact with some data from the forum database. Is it possible to do this?

Some told me that I will have to create an API, but I am not an advanced programmer, just a newbie who wants to learn how to program xD. Any plugin that allows reading/writing the data from the database?

What will I need to learn to do this? Can you recommend a video or tutorial website for me?

Thanks

You're asking a way too generic question here but, to answer shortly: SMF has a database (in either MySQL or Postgres or more rarely SQLite). I'm quite sure there are packages or libraries that you can use to access said standard database system from your app. It's now up to what technologies you are using or want to use to develop said app, and to see wether those libraries actually exist and if it's viable to use them.
