The WebViewGold iOS App Template is quite smart when it comes to different ways to handle the offline/online status of app users. Three modes are available:

 

Option 1: Use a URL for accessing your web application (= store files online)

Option 2: Use a local HTML folder for accessing your web application (= store files within the app)

Option 3: Use an HTML folder if the user is offline, and use a remote URL if the user is online (= store files online + store backup/fallback files within the app)
