    Description

      I wrote a simple app that uses the file system API to read a file from the www folder. The demo code may be found here:

      https://github.com/cfjedimaster/Cordova-Examples/blob/master/readtextfile/

      It uses this line essentially to handle the read:

      window.resolveLocalFileSystemURL(cordova.file.applicationDirectory + "www/index.html", gotFile, fail);

      This works fine in iOS, but fails to work in Android. While you can work around this by just using a regular XHR get, the code really should work.
