….that is Simon MacDonald @ http://simonmacdonald.blogspot.com/2011/12/on-third-day-of-phonegapping-getting.html for posting this solution to my 12 hour+ travails of getting data from a server. Alors, it’s taken so long I’m typing franglais.
Summary: 12 hours of ajax, jquery cross domain googling, testing, and the solution from 2011 is to use an XmlHttpRequest.
EDIT: So using xmlhttprequests are actually frowned upon according to the company that I made this app for. The reason this request worked, was that I had set asynchronous to false, which is also frowned upon.
