Subject Re: [Android] The state of WebSQL on Android 4.x
Date Thu, 19 Sep 2013 15:42:30 GMT
OK, how about we do this:

1. We indicate that we no longer support WebSQL on the docs and we
list out why we don't support it as it currently exists
2. I'll look at the Android plugin that does do SQLite and see if it's
appropriate for Android (if someone could do the same for iOS, that'd
be cool):

I think this looks far more promising than any of the hokey bullshit
that we're currently doing, and it has contributors, and it's actually
updated for Cordova 3.0.
