    My new ipad 2 arrives next week and I will be going shopping in the itunes store for some apps. How can I distinguish those that will need internet access to operatre from those that are totally self contained once downloaded?

    Thanks

    There is no indicator separating offline/online apps, so you will have to rely on common sense, or read the apps description.

    Thanks for that. Wouldn't you think that it should be mandatory to provide information if an app can work offline or must have an Internet connect to function?

    I'm facing a problem right now. I want to buy an app, but it is important for me to know that such app does not require Internet access.
    The app is for a child, and she does not use the Internet.

    I don't know why such info is not displayed on the requirement field.

    Is there any alternative site to gather such of info?
