Local Storage


  • Set caching headers so that the app can run without a network connection (be inspired in the subway!)
  • Finish creating the various mobile app start screens
  • Add bookmark bubble plugin to promote adding app to the homescreen on mobile devices
  • Add feedback to show when a strategy is faved (i.e. change star to be yellow?)
  • Hide fave functionality when using browser that doesn't support localStorage
