Building offline-first mobile apps isn't easy. Caching is fast and efficient, but only allows data to flow one way: from the server to the device. Manual replication gives users read/write capability, but at the cost of introducing possible conflicts, multiple failure points, and a need for a robust network pipeline. And building solutions with either approach from the ground up requires engineering resources, expertise, and budgets that are better spent elsewhere.
