Subject Re: Cordova and Android 4.4 (KitKat)
Date Tue, 02 Sep 2014 03:28:45 GMT
"Cordova supports Android 2.3.x (Gingerbread, starting with Android API
level 10) and 4.x" this includes Android 4.4

With Cordova when you run your App on Android the WebView used is the one
provided by the "Operating System".
This means that your Cordova App running on a device with Android 4.0.3
will be using a WebView with version 4.0.3, when the same App is running on
a device with Android 4.4 the webview will be 4.4 and so on.

Cordova currently doesn't provide a WebView, this is provided by Android.
So in your case your Cordova App should not show problems when running on
Android 4.4, but it will show problems in Android 4.0.3. Cordova will not
provide a 4.4 WebView on the device running 4.0.3 by "Magic" :-)

If you have a specific use case, and think there is problem with Cordova
and Android 4.4 WebView please open a bug report in our system

By the way this is a mailing list for contributors, you might get faster
turnaround on this type of questions if you use one of the user forums like
