HTML5 Offline Portfolio Web App iPhone and iPad Screenshots


  1. Update page title and meta content
  2. Update favicon.ico
  3. Update apple-touch-icon.png
  4. Update HTML code for thumbnails and images (see jquery mobile docs)
  5. Add all new file urls to main.manifest (see below)
  6. Publish to a live server
  7. Browse to your site on your iPhone or iPad
  8. Save on your iPad by clicking 'Add to Home Screen'



The manifest file specifies the resources—such as HTML, JavaScript, CSS, and image files —to downloaded and store in the application cache. It's important to remember:

  • The first line must contain the text CACHE MANIFEST
  • The URLs are file paths to resources you want to download and cache locally
  • All files must be referenced in the main.manifest file
  • Any incorrect references will cause the offline storage to silently fail (be prepared to pull your hair out)
  • You can find out more at HTML 5 Offline Application Cache


The manifest file must be served with type text/cache-manifest so if you are hosting your app on an apache server you might need to add the following to your .htaccess

AddType text/cache-manifest manifest
ExpiresActive On
ExpiresDefault "access"
