@Yoh you are right the plugin is meant to backup when the app resignActive or beingClosed
by the OS.
However you need explicitly backup after you call setItem or window.localStorage.foo=bar to
support cases like when the users kill the app manually from the task manager, or when the
user turn OFF/ON the phone, or maybe when the mobile turns off for whatever reason without
a backup.

I would suggest you implement something  function mySetIem (bar) {
    // window.localeStorage.foo = bar;
    // backup: Cordova.exec(null, null, "CDVLocalStorage", "backup", []);
}

this will allow your storage to be more robust exept for the cases that you and @Brad hilighted,
when we install on top of exsisting app,

Let's wait for @shazron to advise so we don't waste time.

> Dear Dev
> WebKit data (localstorage or local SQLite) are now stored in Library/ Caches folder (instead
of Library/WebKit folder). This is a big problem for all apps using UIWebView and storing
user data, because they will no longer be backed up and may be deleted. There are a lot of
apps using localstorage or SQLite as a critical feature. 
> The SQLite database gets deleted because the database is saved in a location on the filesystem
which Apple does not consider to contain persistent data.
> *Steps to Reproduce:* 
> In a UIWebView, create a new DB or use localStorage with JavaScript. 
> You can see that the WebKit data is now stored in Library/Caches :  
> *Expected Results:*
> We should at least specify the directory of WebKit data (and to set it 
> to Documents/ for critical data) 
> *Actual Results:* 
> The WebKit data are stored in Library/Caches folder, and can be 
> deleted 
> *Regression:*
> To migrate database location from Library/Caches to some other location such as Documents.
