Create Featues From Shapefile Offline

I have to evaluate the ArcGIS Runtime WPF SDK for a new project. Therefore this topic is really new to me.
It is required that the WPF Application will run in an offline environment. I have to load a local .tpk File and draw lines and polygons from two shapefiles. I came accross the "Create Features From Shapefile" example in the runtime samples. The sample project worked for me with a local shapefile and seems exactly what I need but it uses the ArcGIS Portal REST API (http://www.arcgis.com/sharing/rest/content/features/generate) for generating the features.
Is there a way to do this in an offline scenario without the REST API? I discovered the LocalFeatureService. Can I use them to generate the features from the shapefiles?

Many thanks in advance :-)
