If we set the user agent in the app to Wikipedia Mobile / version then we skip having to see a mobile web search input box

This is _not_ active right now. We have to figure out what to cache and for how long.

The implementation takes a URL and caches it with its images and associated resources(stylesheets etc...). Resources are replaced on the fly (when the page loads in the iframe).

Everything is stored in the apps private data directory (internal storage and not SDCard).

I looked at the mockups and I didn't see any UI for managing saved articles. Should we just reuse the bookmark UI ?
