I have been trying to figure this out for hours and just can't get it.
First off this work fine in preview. I only get the problem when I have it installed on the ipad. I am appending img srcs to divs but nothing happens. The image is never downloaded and never appears on the page.
Here is a really simple example:
$('#container').append('<img src="http://www.someurl/someimage.jpg" />');
Works fine in preview (given that you put an actual img src url) but doesn't work once it is on the ios device.
Please please help.
Try to isolate a jquery issue (you should be using jquerymobile if possible). Try using pure JS:
var img = new Image();
img.src = 'http://www.somewhere.com/a.png';
I met same issue. Seems there is a bug in Adobe StageWebView component. And this issue can be reproduced only in iOS. On Android and desktop it is ok.
I solved this issue by using native extension:
It is paid, but you can find open source versions, like that one:
or write your own.
