iPhone increase database size message


I've been testing a webapp on iPhone, and the attached message appears everytine the app is accessed. Is there any way of avoiding this, as I imagine it could be concerning for users?

Thanks and kind regards


Hi, this is a Safari issue and something Apple introduced a couple of months ago. As long as you use local data in your app (WebSQL) I am not sure that it is avoidable. I will do some research on this and get back to you.



Hi Gareth

This message will not appear from NAD 3.1 SP02 when not using any database. If you use any cache w/WebSQL it will be popped as you see today. But that is standard from Apple.
