Mobile US directory is a mobile application showing how Convertigo can port an existing Web application to smartphones and enhance it with additionnal features. The goal of Mobile US directory application is to perform a US Directory research and then locate the found addresses on a map.
This mobile application is developped through a Convertigo Mobile project, based on the Convertigo Templating Framework (CTF), jQuery Mobile and PhoneGap/Cordova. It demonstrates several features of Convertigo Mobility Platform:
Client CachingThe client Local Cache is activated through the mobile application code. After one execution, it stores the response data locally on the device. When the same request is issued by the application in the next hour, on the same device, the response is retreived directly from the local memory of the device. This functionality saves network traffic between the device and the server, needing only one connection by hour for a set of search criteria when calling the search transaction. The application is then able to display data when the device is not connected to the network.
