How does Thunkable store permanent data?

Hi,

This is a slightly unusual question however, I need to better understand how Thunkable actually works as I am need to explain how Thunkable does some key function for a computer science project. My question is, how does Thunkable store permanent data to the user’s mobile device (i.e via stored variables) ? Is it stored as a cookie or maybe something else? If someone could explain this it would be much appreciated.

Thanks!

Jake.

Stored variables are stored in the cache and app data of the app itself.

You can easily verify it if you’re using an Android device. From the settings, go to your app and clear the app cache and app data.

Run the app and you should see that your stored variables have been set to null again.

For an iOS device, you have to uninstall and reinstall.
