    For data storage, we have a caching layer that receives data from the cloud and stores it both in memory and on device. Then there is a pub model that notifies listeners when the data has been updated. it's pretty simple but works great! I like hyperoslo's implementation for cache: For units, we just build a protocol for the internet piece and provide the data locally. We cache the unit test data in a different folder on device and it all works seamlessly. I think the hardest part there was intercepting the HTTP requests and forking to the local test data. The key there was implementing a URLProtocol subclass.
