Subject Re: [Android] CordovaWebView - Reviewing CordovaInterace (Plugins, WebView methods, Docs, OH MY!)
Date Thu, 12 Apr 2012 18:18:35 GMT

sure that the features and APIs deemed important to Android devs also make
its way back into the overall plugin architecture (I.e. The cross platform
one we are drafting [1]).

I'm in for a review and figuring out what those needs are.
