Offline document generation with the Mobile SDK


On an IOS mobile device we need to allow a sales rep to enter an Opportunity and Line Items and then generate a merge document containing the captured data.  This all needs to be performed offline using the Mobile SDK.  Is this possible and if so what would be the best approach?

I was thinking of maybe rendering a Visualforce page as a pdf and saving it as a possible solution.

Any thoughts would be much appreciated.
Do you plan to generate the pdf offline or do you want to only capture the data offline? Visualforce pdf generation won't work offline. But you can capture data offline using mobile SDK and allow user to generate the PDF later using Visualforce when the device is connected to salesforce.
