How much data can we store offline using phone gap for iOS (iPad) application

Hi EE

We are building an html5 app using phonegap. We use SQL server as a backend. We need the application to be available offline when there is no network. I was wondering if there is any data limitation using this approach.

Is there any best practice for offline applications using Phone Gap? or should we move to native  iOS (iPad) app.

Thanks

phonegap compiles your web app into a native app.  What you're talking about it rewriting the app using the SDK from apple.

As long as the app doesn't need to do too much interfacing with the user's device then phonegap is good.  When you need to start hooking into the camera and other parts of the hardware then I don't think you can get away writing a HTML5 app.

Think of it this way, can your app run as a webpage on a mobile device now?  If so, then you shouldn't have any issues using phonegap to create an offline app.

No problem but you should have a read of the grading guidelines: http://support.experts-exchange.com/customer/portal/articles/481419-what-grade-should-i-award-

Any reason you didn't grade this an A?

Hi Rob sorry about the delayed reply.

There is a better solution and we managed to use the following plugin https://github.com/brodysoft/Cordova-SQLitePlugin to make it work for us.

The reason I didn't give you A is because we still had to do a good amount of extra work. I hope it helps.
