Yet another offline gadget article

Monday, December 03, 2007 at 2:56 PM



Offline handling has been sorely missing from many gadgets. To address that, Teo recently wrote a great article called Proper Offline Behaviour.

For another perspective on the topic, please check out the article Offline Detection and Handling. It's a gentle introduction to the subject of offline handling.

The article demonstrates:
  • techniques for detecting an offline gadget
  • how to design the UI for an offline state
  • how to restore functionality when the gadget is back online
I look forward to any feedback or suggestions. Even better, if you've already developed your own system for offline handling, go ahead and write an article about it.
