Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-5920) android:installLocation="preferExternal"
Date Thu, 13 Mar 2014 22:27:47 GMT


Frederico Costa Galvão commented on CB-5920:

What is it other than *AndroidManifest.xml*? I've used this on a 2.1-2.9 app with no changes
to cordova stuff with no issues, so if there's anything needed it didn't affect me until now.

>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: Android, CLI

> 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.
