> I am building a Cordova application which is a fairly thin wrapper around a small single-page
web app. Setting document.cookie in its Javascript code appears to do nothing, and reading
document.cookie always returns an empty string.
> I believe this is because the document is a local one rather than one served by a remote
server, and Android webviews do not by default permit the use of cookies in such documents.

early enough in the app's lifecycle that no CookieManager object has yet been instantiated.
In particular, doing this at the very start of MainActivity.onCreate appears sufficient.
> Is there a good reason why this shouldn't be Cordova's default behaviour? (E.g., are
such cookies shared between all apps on the device?)
