Support for online/offline database sync for field devices without internet access
It would be great if there was official support for Microsoft-Sync (or similar technology) so field devices (or laptops without internet access) could use LightSwitch apps offline and sync once they were back online.
Thank you for the suggestion. We have added it to our product backlog and will consider it for a future release.

This would certainly complete the LS tool that would allow it to compete with all the occasionally connected developer platforms(some free) on the market today.
Microsoft, please wake up, I want to use your products......

Lightswitch is definitely the development tool with best productivity by far!
We definitely need the offline support!

I really believe this is so important. The reason we love Microsoft is that she can make offline rich client so powerful and so productive that no other companies can. If microsoft only want to compete online apps, Microsoft is forgetting her power.
We need offline/online sync! EVERYONE needs it!

I think this online/offline support will make lightswitch the best development tool on earth:
The best productivity, true universal platform independent!
And it still uses the Microsoft platform on the server end!
I would love to use lightswitch if it can support offline sync
This is really useful, please add the support!
Can someone from the VS LS team comment? There are several scenarios where Win7 tablets are used in the field - but they need to work in a offline/disconnected mode and come back to sync.
