    Maintain a database on iPad using HTML5


    I have a client requirement to manage data locally on an iPad with no network connection, any advice would be welcome please…

    Constraints:
    1) No network connection when the iPad is out on site.
    2) Cannot install a native iOS app.

    Preferred wrapper:
    1) Locally installed HTML5 file.

    Requirement:
    1) The HTML5 page, presumably using JavaScript, must be able to save form data to the iPad on a button click event.
    2) The User needs a facility to subsequently upload the data to a central web server, either with network connection or by cable.

    What is the best way the achieve this ?

    Thanks very much..

    Maybe you can use localStorage, but don't know if it is a 100% safe storage.

    You can try search for "iOS html localstorage" on Google and see if that give you any information you can proceed with.
