I would like to create a simple jQuery Mobile/ PhoneGap page with several images on the page.
After I create this page, I would then like to view this page on my ipod touch with an internet connection.
I would then close this page project completely
Then "intentionally" loose my internet signal on my ipod touch device AND THEN re-open the PhoneGap project page to view it, interact with it, play with it, just as I did when I had internet a couple minutes ago.
Is this possible without any cost involved?
If so, where do I learn to build something like this from start to finish?
My plan is to build an HTML5 or jQuery slideshow with the help of jQuery Mobile and PhoneGap, this way my target audience can continue scrolling through text and images (which will be relative to the screen size), if they loose their internet connections due to being facility that blocks out internet. I already have the experience in building a JQM site and a jQuery slideshow - I just don't know how to int-egret these technology projects into a PhoneGap application which will allow users to continue interacting with the experience without wifi or internet strength.
I Just want to point out that you can accomplish what you are trying to achieve through the use of localStorage, and the cacheManifest, both of which are supported in most browsers so you don't actually need to use Phonegap.
Is the PhoneGap application working through a mobile web browser when the user is engaging in it? If so what does the URL look like when the user is offline?
Thanks guys for giving me some good tips so far!
I just need to jump in and building something from start to finish to get a feel of the application for offline use.
Basically Phongap application just wraps your app in a native app and uses a (UI)Webview to display your content. The URL should be the same whether the user is online or offline, but you can't see it within the Phonegap app.
You might want to have a look at this page in the JQM docs related to Phonegapp applications.
Yes! I just got done reading mulitple articles about Manifest! Thank you for confirming that steveatcdc. There are some big tutorials already posted to help get started on building offline applications with it too. If all else fails I'll simply take watusiware's advice on seeing how far PhoneGap can offer a solution through its Docs. Thank you everyone for helping me get on the right track!
