The Offline-first Approach to Mobile App Development

Offline first is not easy, and the usual approaches each have severe limitations. Caching is fast and efficient, but only allows data to flow one way: from the server to the device. Manual replication gives users read/write capability, but at the cost of introducing possible conflicts, multiple failure points, and a need for a robust network pipeline. And building solutions with either approach from the ground up requires engineering resources, expertise, and budgets that are better spent elsewhere.

Key Takeaways:
  • Understand the challenges of mobile computing and unreliable networks
  • Discover the advantages of implementing an offline-first approach to app development
  • Compare common approaches and pitfalls of making apps offline-first
  • See how a real-time data sync platform can improve your user experience
