Consider following scenarios
You are watching an interesting YouTube video on your iPhone while commuting to work in a train and the network gets disrupted and you can’t watch the video. You get frustrated.
QA Engineer is on production shop floor capturing Gear outer and inner diameter parameters for SPC analysis and trying to save it but loses internet connection and loses data.
Money saving experts team wants to capture the feedback of utility providers from consumers and they are in some local area in London and while filling the on-line form their internet connection is lost.
Above scenarios sounds familiar?
This is the limitation of typical web based applications as they need internet connection to serve the application seamlessly.
But don’t worry! Now with HTML5, it is possible to develop off-line web applications which will continue to work seamlessly in the event of loss of internet connection. This is possible because of the Application Cache and Web Storage features of HTML5.
We have developed sample Task Tracker application by leveraging above mentioned features of HTML5 so that you can capture data both on-line and off-line and sync it with back-end database once internet connection is restored.
Please Read this article which will walk you through how to achieve this step by step.
I hope you will like it.
