I am having some problems with my site not working properly on my android.
I narrowed it down and it seems that it is not posting the jquery ajax post requests.
A. is that true, that ajax doesn't work on the android?
B. Is there a way to detect if the ajax isn't working or it is?
C. Is there a simple work around of type of ajax script that works on all cells?

A. Ajax should work fine on Android - it's specific to the browser and AJAX is just a method of making a request for data using Javascript

B. Make sure your scripts are coded in such a way that they handle errors properly. When making an AJAX request in jQuery, you have the success(), fail() and done() methods to respond to various outcomes. You also need to make sure that the server-side script you're requesting data from is coded properly - again generating errors where necessary.

C. Using jQuery for AJAX request is about as easy as it gets. The jQuery library takes all the hassle out of making sure your scripts work across all browsers.

Whenever you write code (of any kind) you really need to do dome solid testing. Rather than using the code as you intended, your aim is to actually try and break it. If you can't, and it responds appropriately to various errors, then you're on the right track.

You may want to post some code here that hilights the problem and we can give you some advice on best-practice. We'd need to see the server-side code, the client-side jQuery and any HTML that the jQuery interacts with.
