Will the next version of Articulate only be available if you have Internet access?
I just read the incredibly exciting possibilities that Articulate presents in their whitepaper about future product development, however there is one thing that distresses me about it. Please DO READ IT if you haven't.
In the paper, it discusses many important things such as the need to focus on HTML5 (which I think is incredibly smart) but there is the introduction of the next version of Articulate Storyline which is a web-based authoring tool.
Do I understand correctly that while I am commuting, if I have no or if I have intermittent Internet connectivity that I simply can't work? If I can't install this on Windows then I will spend a lot of time unable to work!
While I recognize that we are moving into a mobile-centric world, I can understand the assumption that we will all be Internet-connected, but seriously, I can think of many situations where having Internet while working isn't best or even possible. I honestly only need it to publish something, which can sometimes mean that I spend hours and hours on my commute working while not publishing only so that I can publish when I get to work or at home. And what if I need to close my distracting tabs on Facebook or Gmail so that I can solely focus on work and nothing but work?
Am I reading this wrong or is the next version of Articulate only going to work if I am on the Internet?
