I would have responded with a clarification of exactly what "offline" means. I can think of three possible definitions. Offline means disconnected from a network. If it is part of the requirements that your application be available without a network connection, then I would begin testing the offline capabilities as soon as those features are ready, as per ...

If you want to focus on quality and not on development skills, maybe you can ask the developer what he does to enhance the overall product quality and software development processes.

If you enjoy testing more than you enjoy developing, then that's all you need to say. No sensible interviewer expects a developer with a year's experience to have really good coding skills: unless your skills with code are weak compared to other developers with your level of experience it should not be an issue.

A good place to start is to ask "Tell me a story about a time you worked together with QA" I want to hear stories like: QA needed this debug functionality to make testing more efficient / effective and we worked together and built it. This sort of tale tells me they understand that cooperation is critical. At the other extreme, I don't want to hear ...

I almost complete agree with Kate Paulk. Almost because I would say: If you don't have fun during work - change your job.
