    I am looking to for a way to bring our company's products to the mobile world, but the platform we choose to use must allow us to write apps that manipulate SVG preferable in iOS and Android.

    By manipulate I mean dynamically load into the page from a web service, scale and drag by gestures.

    Is Icenium that development environment?

    Hi Peter,

    Cordova uses the Android/iOS WebView which is basically limited "version" of the default browser for both platforms. The Android browser does not support SVG prior Android 4, see this for complete compatibility table.

    Neither Cordova nor Icenium aim at providing SVG manipulation. You should look for 3rd party javascript libraries e.g. this one or you could use HTML5 Canvas element.

    Hi, Steve,

    I am not concerned with the actual code - we have extensive library of JavaScript functions to do the SVG manipulation in HTML5, but I was worried about the ability to display SVG, period.

    Now that you are telling me that the base layer of the app is actually a browser with HTML5 capabilities, I will have to give it a try.

    Thank you for your reply.
