One of the perceived benefits of “native” apps is that they can be installed on a device, then run when the user isn’t connected. But web apps can do this too.
In this session, John Allsopp will show you how to use HTML5 features such as app cache and webStorage to create apps that the user can install, and which will work even when the user is cruising at 30,000 feet with no web connection.
These features also have the added bonus of helping to improve the performance of web sites and apps as well, and even work in all modern browsers and devices, including IE8 up!
