This morning I got a seemingly innocent question from a reader:
Came across your blog post on Parse + PhoneGap and wanted to get your opinion on the following use-case for that combo... I've been exploring the possibilities of an app that essentially has a web form (similar to the contact form you've got right here, actually) that would store the resulting data via Parse. The reason being...it would be important that the app would allow a form to submit, even if there wasn't an active Internet connection available. So, just wanted your thoughts on whether I am looking in the right direction to accomplish this. Don't have much experience in the way of iOS apps, but have to start somewhere, right?
I replied to him with a basic outline:
- When you submit the form, hit Parse if you are online, hit WebSQL if not.
