GitHub user ngopal opened a pull request:

    Added note about iOS9 and Xcode (7 and higher) quirks.

    I spent many hours identifying this issue and propose modifying the README file with a
helpful pointer (to save the time of others). The problem and solution were not obvious and
is not anywhere on StackOverflow. In a number of scenarios, the filetransfer error callback
was not triggered and my app failed silently -- in scenarios where the error was not silent,
the returned error code was 3 (connection error). This is because Xcode7 (and higher) and
iOS9 enforce an App Transport Security protocol that requires the file transfer connection
to be secure (connect via https). This constraint can be bypassed (for development purposes)
by using the following plugin: cordova-plugin-transport-security (
