Subject Re: iOS BackupWebStorage Config Preference Default Value
Date Wed, 02 Apr 2014 06:58:25 GMT
This is the very first time one of our customers is having approval
problems with WebSQL powered app. If more popup I will follow up here.

Regarding the idea of NSLogging it I think it makes a lot of sense. Should
we progress on this with Jira item and a pull request?
