Dear Ragi,
I just saw the list of feature included in your app, It gonna be a great
app. We have used ODK before and recently OpenMapKit developed by American
Red Cross which are also good offline data collection app.
https://github.com/AmericanRedCross/OpenMapKit . Are these all features you
included in your mail support offline ? Have you tested this app for doing
any mapping ?

Thanks for you great effort. Keep the good work up.

Best regards
