Can my created Apps run offline?

Yes your App can run Offline

We support an offline cache for Progressive Web Apps (PWA). It´s available for the latest Apple devices from iOS 11.3 and Android with recent Chrome Browser.

What will happen is that you App will load the first time like normal. And after that it will create a cached copy automatically. The next time the user visits the app it will serve the cached copy. It will even work offline after that. If there is an new update published the user will receive a message to reload the page for the latest version.

There are some drawbacks:

  • Some screens like social feeds won't work offline since the use external connections
  • Some action like website actions won't work offline either. 
  • Creating the cached copy is based on previous app usage. So only pages previously visited will be cached.

Meaning that some sections or your app might not work offline. 

This technology is based on Service workers and advanced caching.
