Hello,

Is there any way to launch the application on a web page offline?

(Tony Fader) #2

@Mohamed_Gaber No, right now you need to have an internet connection in order to initially load the webpage. Once it’s loaded, you can go into offline mode, though.

On my android, the app launches perfectly offline. So I was thinking to find a way to run the android app on PC and this way, it should launches offline. Do you think that might work?

@Mohamed_Gaber I’m not sure, it’s worth a shot, if you can find an android emulator to run the app. I’m unfamiliar with this, though.

I would be curious to learn what you find about launching the app in the Android emulator in a browser (or using an apk) when offline and whether data gets synced when the internet connection is restored.

@tony @Bellave_Jayaram @Stephen_Mattison Hey everyone.I have tried it and it actually worked!! Here is what I did: I installed Android studio emulator from google, then retrieved an APK file for my Appsheet App and installed it on the emulator. I turned off the wifi, launched the emulator and then the app and it launched very well. I entered some data while still offline and then closed the emulator and restarted my PC, after the PC started I reopened the emulator while still offline and the app launched with the data that I entered still stored and ready to be synced. I connected the wifi again and synced the data and it was synced with no problems.

I think this might be a good idea for those who want to launch the app offline on PC. I also recommend using bluestack instead of Android studio as it’s much easier and faster for that little goal.
