Ever been bothered by apps that fail to work when the network suddenly drops? Do you get frustrated by games that require a constant Internet connection even though all they seem to do is ping a server? Can your app handle network handover gracefully? You will discover how to make your app more resilient to varied network conditions and what options you have to maintain a good user experience when the device is not online. This talk will explore various stuff like best practice for integrating web services, persistence alternatives and how to actually be sure that you have a fully working network connection.
