hey atnan, great article, very insightful, congrats. Seems like Apple has put a lot of effort on improving UIWebviews, there is more than just Nitro, apparently.

I strongly believe the whole HTML5 standard is supported on iOS5 but it has to be enabled. Did anyone notice the SQLite database that's created everytime you use a UIWebview? I've been trying to enable offline navigation and got kinda stuck but this gives me a couple of good new ideas.

Cheers, Alex

Safari and MobileSafari support HTML5 local storage:


There's nothing you have to do to enable it. Except use it.

I does work on MobileSafari but not on UIWebviews. There's a key called "WebKitOfflineWebApplicationCacheEnabled" that's automatically set to YES but it doesn't seem make any difference. I'm trying to find out why, but for that I need to go down to the dungeons of Apple's private frameworks and there is where I'm struggling at the moment.
