Subject RE: SQLite query vs. Filtering ArrayCollection
Date Fri, 08 Nov 2013 20:18:41 GMT
If I write the application using 'workers', will I have to change it for IOS
or will it just be ignored?

Forgive me if this is an ignorant question, I have not done anything with
'workers' to date.

My mistake - i thought android was a release feature and ios a beta :(

from air3.9 release notes...

"We haven't forgotten about iOS! Look for news on iOS workers in an upcoming
release (NOTE: this feature will undergo an extended beta period.)"
