9800 Simulator doesn't handle localStorage?

So I'm using the 9800 simulator ( and it seems like my app crashes when I try to make a localStorage call.


I'm doing something very simple, and it works on an OS 7 simulator.


function saveUser(){
	if (typeof(localStorage) !== 'undefined'){
		localStorage.setItem("userName", "User");

 And just a button to make this call:

<input type="button" value="Save UserName!" onclick="saveUser()" />

 When I click the button, the app hangs for a few seconds, and then just closes. Sometimes, I'll get write exceptions in the simulator.

Re: 9800 Simulator doesn't handle localStorage?

There are a few versions of 6.0 that do not support localstorage, but the vast majority do. You might want to try lawnchair as it can offer the same interface but fall back on SQL databases if necessary.
