I use this shim and use it for iOS and android and after patching it works great!

The latest build is completely broken without patches, see my pull reqs on github and some

I'm all for using this as a starting point but it has been broken for almost 4 months now
without manually applying patches. (I'm talking about iterating over indexes and cursor.Update
being broken). 

If we want to use this, we should never have such a situation again.

I gave IndexedDB shim over websql a shot, but it is not 100% compliant and has some bugs - I am working on fixing the bugs, but to the level
it works, I tested and it works with Cordova well !! 
Could we use that as a starting point ?

an indexeddb plugin would be a rad thing for the community to create and maintain ;)

in seriousness: the file api is probably what you're really looking for if you want to read/write
json on phones (you could even use it as a basis for an JS only plugin that polyfills indexeddb.
