App development for iOS and Android using kivy and sqlite

My friends and I really got into reading this summer and I was thinking to write a program for a book tracker (something like goodreads but really basic). I am a beginner and I'd like some advice before i start this project.

I want it to be a cross platform app (mostly for ios and android) so thats why i chose to use kivy (if you have other suggestions please share). From what i know, i need an apple developer certificate to get the app on an iphone, which is quite costly for me. 1) Is there any other way to download the app on an ios device?

The point of this app is to simply log your entries (name of the book, author, date when finished, rating) and store them in a database. I'd like to have a "friends" feature in order to see what books the other users have read. 2) So, I'm asking - is sqlite good to make one centralized database for all the users? 3) Do I need to take into account a server in order to make this work?

4) Do you have any suggestions for tutorials for both kivy and sqlite, but also how to make the connection between the app and the database?

Thank you!

I'd suggest researching using a search engine first.
