SharePoint 2013 based multi device offline application leveraging html 5

SharePoint based multi device offline application leveraging html 5 offline capabilities

Develop an offline ipad app which needs to work on desktop as well in offline mode.

After considering the different technical options the recommended one I believe is to leverage SharePoint platform in combination with html5 offline capability and Rest API .
JavaScript Object Model and REST API can be used as part of CSOM.  Html 5, CSS,Backbone,  and JQuery  can be used as part of client side technology

Enabling Anonymous SharePoint 2013 Rest API Calls

By default Rest APi calls fails if the SharePoint portal is configured for anonymous access.
This is due to the fact that the ViewFormPagesLockDown Feature (Site Collection) in SharePoint 2013 is activated and visible by default. This was not the case with previous versions of SharePoint.

Following settings needs to be done to overcome this issue
Please navigate to Site collection settings and deactivate the feature "Limited Access user permission lockdown mode"

Assumption:- Already anonymous access has been configured at central admin level and other required libraries as and where required.
