+
+<p>The <code><a href="cordova_file_file.md.html#FileWriter">FileWriter</a></code> object is a way to write files to the device file system (UTF-8 encoded).  Users register their own event listeners to receive the writestart, progress, write, writeend, error and abort events.</p>
+
+<p>A <a href="cordova_file_file.md.html#FileWriter">FileWriter</a> is created for a single file. You can use it to write to a file multiple times. The <a href="cordova_file_file.md.html#FileWriter">FileWriter</a> maintains the file's position and length attributes, so you can seek and write anywhere in the file. By default, the <a href="cordova_file_file.md.html#FileWriter">FileWriter</a> writes to the beginning of the file (will overwrite existing data). Set the optional append boolean to true in the <a href="cordova_file_file.md.html#FileWriter">FileWriter</a>'s constructor to begin writing to the end of the file.</p>

+<p>The <code><a href="cordova_file_file.md.html#FileTransfer">FileTransfer</a></code> object provides a way to upload files to a remote server using an HTTP multi-part POST request.  Both HTTP and HTTPS protocols are supported.  Optional parameters can be specified by passing a <a href="cordova_file_file.md.html#FileUploadOptions">FileUploadOptions</a> object to the upload method.  On successful upload, the success callback will be called with a <a href="cordova_file_file.md.html#FileUploadResult">FileUploadResult</a> object.  If an error occurs, the error callback will be invoked with a <a href="cordova_file_file.md.html#FileTransferError">FileTransferError</a> object.
+It is also possible to download a file from remote and save it on the device (only iOS and Android).</p>
