    Default Sencha Designer to iPad?

    Graphic Designer here. Still a noob in the app world, although I am getting into graphic design for an iOS app.
    I do love the idea of HTML5 web apps = no boundaries - much more nicer than the AppStore, for example.

    I am looking for a link or advice to getting a Sencha Designer app on to an iPad - been searching this forum, but I am probably the noobest of all here
    What brought me to discover Sencha was researching how to create an HTML5 document and make it available offline (cache.manifest) for iPads.I've seen some cool examples:
    http://www.bybjorn.com/723/
    and even this one http://www.sencha.com/learn/taking-sencha-touch-apps-offline?mkt_tok=3RkMMJWWfF9wsRonu6XLZKXonjHpfsX56OslUKC0lMI%2F0ER3fOvrPUfGjI4DTdQhcOuuEwcWGog80wlWGeiU
    But I am missing the part that explains how to get it to the iPAD - is the only answer to just open it on the Safari browser on the iPad?
    I want to create a virtual tour on an iPad (images, videos, and most importantly audio). Think of it as an interactive museum web app.
    The caveat is that there will be no WiFi/Data access at the location, so the web app needs to be loaded beforehand where there is a data connection (I assume).
    This is a private endeavor, so the documentation cannot live out in the www (only on protected servers).
    Can anyone help a brotha out?

    Thanks
    Ted

    To get the cache.manifest to trigger cacheing the resources you first have to go to that index file. The browser will then see you told it to use the cache.manifest and will then take action.

    Mitchell,
    In theory, I could access the index file on a local network/server, not just the www?

    If this "virtual tour guide" web app project works out well, I plan to distribute proprietary company documents & training guides through web apps for employees' iphones, ipads etc and even distributing proposals to prospecting clients.

    I just want to make sure I am headed down the right path to a distributing method for smartphones/tablets and PCs.
    I could go the Adobe Digital Publishing route but that is loads of $$$ and my content has to live on their servers.

    The issue I would have with having the index file in a local server is if you have a remote server you want to send a call to to get data, you would be limited to using jsonp. If you aren't going to use remote data then this is not a worry.
