Can we support offline Single Page web apps in iOS 10+?

user8947 Published in September 21, 2018, 2:52 am

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

  • As I understand you want something like PhoneGap or Cordova. phonegap.com – MichaelV Feb 22 at 17:45
  • without 3rd party: you can provide intial html in you bundle, the copy it to document folder and present it in webview, loading new same time, and replacing old if succeed. Basically same for forms. – MichaelV Feb 22 at 17:49
  • @MichaelVorontsov, it's not a hybrid app which we are looking for. We wanted a web application which is mobile friendly and should have the offline capabilities. – Apps Feb 23 at 2:12
  • You want app to be opened in browser? – MichaelV Feb 23 at 11:56
  • Since service worker is available in safari this could be feasibly built as a progressive web application see here jakearchibald.github.io/isserviceworkerready – Isaac Osiemo Feb 23 at 20:10
