File Upload with Cordova that Doesn't Suck (swantner.tumblr.com)

I hadn't noticed Filepicker had that neat mobile solution. Very nice. The only problem I've ever had with Filepicker, is that sometime if you query their returned URLs instantly after you've uploaded a file, there's no file there.

P.S Holy tiny type. My eye sight is failing, it's the end of the day. I'm dyslexic. At least the site doesn't break when you zoom in.

Hi there,

Filepicker here. Thanks for the compliment. Regarding the url not showing up immediately: We've been working hard to keep the system scaling and performant. One of those things is to have read slaves and you seem to have beaten our db propagation. I'll take a closer look at that and tune it a bit.

Cool thanks. We're working on something where it's quite problematic getting zero byte files occasionally. It's nothing to do with the speed, because the file is always there milliseconds later. I imagine it's just that our callback is triggered by the filepicker.io api moments before the file is available on your read slaves?
