Got a question.

Under Behavior->Offline/Sync there’s a toggle for "Store content for offline use.

Makes all read-only content available offline, but makes app launch and sync slower."

Why is that?

If data is cached on the system, shouldn’t syncs be faster?

Well, it makes the initial sync slower because all the images have to be fetched and saved locally.

Otherwise, only the images that are currently being shown need to be fetched and that is done dynamically.
