Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-5920) android:installLocation="preferExternal"
Date Tue, 11 Mar 2014 18:05:43 GMT


Josh Soref commented on CB-5920:

[~bowserj]: by "exposed", do you mean "a choice" or "always set"? The current pull request
is an "always".

I'm assuming you mean a choice and thus that the current pull request would need to be reworked...

>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: Android, CLI
>         Environment: Phones with 512 Ram
>            Reporter: cesine

> I created a PR on github suggesting to add preferExternal
> for phones with small amounts of internal storage (512MB and even 1GB, android 2.2 and
2.3 and even some 4.0) the user wont be able to install the app (or keep it) unless you let
them put it on the sdcard instead of the internal phone storage. Very few cordova apps are
the kind of app which shouldn't be on external storage.
