1. A method for detecting a long poll request initiated at a mobile device, the method comprising:

  • detecting a first request initiated by a client on the mobile device;

    detecting a second request initiated by the client on the mobile device after a first response is received at the mobile device responsive to the first request;

    using a response delay time interval relative to an idle time interval to determine whether requests initiated by the client are long poll requests;

    wherein, the response delay time interval is between time of the first request and receipt of the response;

    wherein, the idle time interval is between time of the response to time of the second request;

    detecting a third request, and detecting a trend in response delays based on when responses for the second and third requests are received;

    wherein, the trend indicates an increase in response delays;

    wherein, the increase indicates cacheability for the long poll requests and a third response received is stored as cache elements in a local cache.
