We are developing a Single Page RWD web app which supports all mobile form factors. We would like to

  1. have the webapp support offline browsing capability as well
  2. Once the data is downloaded from server, user should be able to see that data even if there is no internet connection.
  3. Users should be able to fill forms, and later submit it to server, when there is internet connection.

Can we use the AppCache, HTML5 storage to get the offline capabilities? If we are using hash to change the navigation in address bar the whole page refresh problem is also not there.

Was going through some of the older posts in Stackoverflow on this. Offline iOS web app: loads my manifest, but doesn't work offline

This post is dated back in 2011. In 2017, can we support

Users should be able to fill forms, and later submit it to the server, when there is an internet connection.

You need to cache all the responses when using the native iOS or any other cross platform. If you are wondering about PWA, it is coming in the 11.3 version of iOS. Refer this link to understand more about the service workers in the WebKit. It is a beta version, so do not expect it to run bug free.
