View Full Version : Warning: Bug in IOS 5.01 add to home screen

4 Jan 2012, 9:59 AM
I've been pulling my hair out thinking it was something I was doing wrong, when in fact it appears to be a bug in iOS 5.0 & 5.01.

The problem occurs when you visit a site built in Sencha Touch 1.1.1, view it and add to home screen. When you delete the app from the home screen and reload it in safari and add to the home screen it is still the old version - in other words, Safari is caching the old version even when deleted, cache is cleared all settings reset etc. Seems to be a known issue here:


This really affects any web app built using Sencha and saved to the homescreen, and is a pretty serious bug. Has anyone else noticed this?

Where is the bug within Sencha Touch? Sounds like it is iOS that is doing this.
