iPad 2 Off Line

Does anyone know if it is possible to read and save webpages off line on an iPad.

Let me explain.

We are accessing a website that is simply a questionnaire. On a box standard laptop we can simply use it in off line mode and then click on the synchronize button on the website when we have a 3G signal or WiFi.

We have a requirement to do a similar thing except on an iPad.

i have tried using two apps called Padlock and Kiosk Pro to do this.

Neither of them will work. Both either show a blank screen or produce a large error page screaming that there is no internet connection.

Before anyone mentions webkit, I am as far from a programmer as you are ever likely to see !

Hope someone can throw some ideas my way.

Thanks

Do you have to use that particular page?  There are offline survey apps for the iPad and it seems that would be a far better solution.

There are indeed. However the data collected needs to be secure and uploading it to another survey site won't cut the mustard. We need to keep to the https site we have had set up.

Any ideas as I'm completely out of them ?

Any chance the form layout could be setup as an email form?
That way you can compose draft emails via a template form layout, then save in the outbox on the iPad, once done then save them in the drafts / outbox folder, then when you are connected to a wifi hotspot or activate the dialup connection for mobile broadband then send them via a low level  / generic email account address?
Upload them to the server / office email account then either upload the forms or transfer the data from email to the desired application?
That way you could compose and note the relevant contact information and notes if required, email to the office pc and (if practical) copy and paste or save within the template layout on the iPad the required email address to upload the forms to.

Andrewmcc - no it has to be done on that website

Tharstern - do you know if that app will work?

I'll try it if you know it will, but I'm getting fed up shelling out for apps that don't do what I need.

simples: I worked at a company that had a marketing 'webapp' they had designed for the iPad. It wasn't anything super interactive like a survey, it just had videos and media pertaining to our products and was laid out to flow like a native app using html5. We were able to get an 'offline' version of working in an app called GoodReader. We had to take the entire root of the webapp and save it down to a pc and then transfer it over to the iPad. It took a few steps but it gave our sales reps an offline way to display the marketing material.
