The new Travel Philippines App is a Progressive Web App or PWA. This means that it functions very similarly to a website, but with more capabilities, such as being able to browse and save documents offline! If you'd like a better experience, save this PWA on your home screen so that you can access the offline features.

Installing a PWA on iOS is also quite simple, but can be rather limited. The process unfortunately only works from the Safari browser. Beyond that restriction, however, it’s quite similar to Android.

If I save this to homescreen will it take up much storage on my device?
Since this is a very lightweight Progressive Web App, it will take up very little storage space on your device.
How do I access offline mode?
After saving the PWA to your homescreen, login or create an account. If you haven't yet created a personal Trip folder, you can do this from the "My Trips" section. Then you can browse and save articles, places, experiences, and even uploaded documents to your Trip folder. On each Trip, there is a button "Save Offline" that allows you to save everything within the folder offline.
Can I save offline from multiple devices?
No. You have to save offline in the same device where you Saved to Homescreen. You can add things to you Trip folder from multiple devices, but you must go back to the Saved PWA in order to Update the Trip.
Can I add to My Trips on a Desktop?
Yes you can! But you will need to go onto your mobile if you would like to save it offline.
