PhoneGap iOS problem - LocalStorage/SQL data can get deleted

edited February 2012 in Packaging Apps
I just saw a new thread on the PhoneGap mailing list about a system change in iOS 5.1 that affects apps.

It looks like on those devices, the local data stored from a UIWebView (what PhoneGap/Cordova uses to show your content) is stored in a cache folder which can be deleted by the system when space is low. So, if you're going to be storing anything on those devices, make sure you have some sort of syncing solution too. Hopefully, Apple will change this in a future release.
