The captured host screens are stored with a file extension of (.nl).

Working offline removes the constraints of always having to have a live connection during development. nl host screen captures are a complete capture of the host screen information and therefore can be viewed in either GUI or emulator view. This is particularly useful for offline demonstrations and early development work.
