What Youve Learned

In this chapter, you've learned how to give users access to a web app, even when they have no connection to the Internet. With this new addition to our programming toolbox, we now have the ability to create an offline app that is virtually indistinguishable from a native application downloaded from the Android Market.

Of course, a pure web app such as this is still limited by the security constraints that exist for all web apps. For example, a web app can't access the Address Book, the camera, vibration, or the accelerometer on the phone. In the next chapter, I'll address these issues and more with the assistance of an open source project called PhoneGap.
