Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-5920) android:installLocation="preferExternal"
Date Tue, 10 May 2016 10:34:12 GMT


Roberto De Simone commented on CB-5920:

[~bowserj] coincidently we have users asking for SD card installation. We put the setting
in AndroidManifest.xml. Supporting config.xml would be the better practice. Maybe this could
be added occasionally. Thanks

>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: Android, CLI
>         Environment: Apps larger than 10mb
>            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.
