I'm confused. The DLC is the new offline mode, right? Or did the whole app get an offline mode?

I don't have the game yet and I am still waiting for an offline mode..

I wouldn't really consider the "Advanced Training Level" as an offline mode, unless I'm missing something here...

Haha, great timing.
Can you complain that I don't make enough money. I want to see if it'll work for that too.
