Book Description

When building mobile apps, it’s easy to forget about the moments when your users lack a good Internet connection. Put your phone in airplane mode, open a few popular apps, and you’ll quickly see how they handle being offline. From Twitter to Pinterest to Apple Maps, some apps might handle being offline better—but very few do it well. A poor offline experience will result in frustrated users who will abandon your app, or worse, turn to your competitor’s apps!

Expert or novice, this book will teach you everything you need to know about designing and building a rigorous offline app experience. By putting the offline experience first, you’ll have a solid foundation to build upon, avoiding the unnecessary stress and frustration of trying to retrofit offline capabilities into your finished app. This basic principle, designing for the worst-case scenario, could save you countless hours of wasted effort.

What You Will Learn

  • Design the behavior of the app, taking offline, online, and the transition between those two states into account
  • Seamlessly implement the offline/online experience that you’ve designed using Sencha Touch and PouchDB
  • Show the user what’s happening under the hood with online/offline indicators and Good Mobile Messaging
  • Employ various strategies to cope with unreliable network conditions
  • Help the user resolve conflicts related to the “split-brain” problem
  • Choose intelligent defaults based on usage of the app
  • Use point-to-point networking to partially overcome a lack of Internet connectivity
