    ok so i know on the computer i can save a web page and if i wait for the game to load i can find the game file and play offline.

    So i know of quite a few one page webapps that need no internet to function just to load so can i save it so that instead of opening the tab then backgrounding the page before i leave a wifi hotstop can i save or download the app some how??

    If the web-app has resource saving funcationality when added to the home-screen, yes. If not, no.

    If you are on a Mac:
    Go to the webpage for the web-app, press File > Save As (make sure you save it as a .webarchive) > Ok
    Now SSH the web-app to your iPod Touch. Download iFile, and find the file. Now tap it and press "View as HTML" TADAAAA!!! Offline web apps!

    If you are on Windows:
    Download Safari from Apple.com and then follow the above instructions for Mac.

    You don't understand...

    If the web-app has some crazy javascript and Apple web-app stuff in it, it's possible, that when you make the webclip, that all files used by the website/webpage are saved to the webclip folder, for offline use.

    YOU cannot set the web-app (unless you've made it, etc...) to save files for offline use, only the creator of the web-app.

    E-mail the creator of the website asking for offline use, or something...

    No, the instructions I gave work for saving web apps for offline use.
