    I need to build a contact form that submits data to a database which is hosted on a the web. The problem I have is that he form will be used in areas of no connectivity and on non 3G iPads. It therefore must have the ability to store the info and sync once in a wifi area?

    Any ideas?

    So how on earth do people access the form in the first place whilst in no-connection areas? Is it in an app? Can't you just tell the user that there's no connectivity when they attempt to submit the form and that they should try again later?

    Sorry, I should have explained a bit clearer. It will be used by a number of my colleagues in different cities to obtain data from the general public on the high street for example. As opposed to completing a paper form, I want it on the iPad so all the info gets held centrally. I have built a html form in dreamweaver that displays fine on the iPad as I have used 'phone gap' to ensure this. I just don't know how to tackle the last bit.
