1. Downloading the app

The only way a user can download an iOS app without internet is if iTunes has been synced to the device. Otherwise, the user will absolutely need an internet connection to download your app, for both iOS and Android versions.  

The very first time the Apollo Apps app is launched, there must be an internet connection in order for the content to be initially loaded and cached.  

In order to see all elements of a section without internet, each piece of content must first be opened while connected.
For example, if a user enters an "Articles" section while connected, but only opens 2 out of 10 articles, these 2 are the only ones they will be able to revisit later on without internet.  

The content cached during a session will later be available for viewing without an internet connection. For any future update you make or any new content you publish, the user will need to be connected to view these updates.

4. Push notifications

Push notifications can still be sent to offline users, but will be stored in the user's notification center and only available for viewing once they have obtained internet. 

5. Statistics

Statistics are still collected regardless of the connection status, so don't worry about missing out on this data.
