Offline Application Support
One of the most frustrating experiences for a consumer is attempting to use a mobile or web development application only to be told that there is a network problem. Traditional, server-side applications rely on communication with the server to work. However, the moment that the consumer is without internet–say in a rural area or while their phone is in airplane mode–the application becomes completely nonfunctional. This is especially troubling for advanced smartphone apps, since wireless service can be hit-or-miss in many regions of the United States. That’s why customer-focused executives insist on using a programming language that allows consumers to use an app while on an airplane or similar environment.
