Dear LiveCode Masters,

Could you experienced folks please give us a concise direction on *where* and *under what name/extension* to save user preferences in the different platforms?

1) MacOS X
Prefs Location: specialFolderPath("Preferences")
Prefs Name: anything you wish, but convention is that if saving your preferences using your own file format - like a LiveCode stack - then name it something like "MyApp Prefs". If saving a .plist file, then use the reverse-domain convention: "com.mycompany.myapp.plist".

2) Windows
Prefs Location: ???
Prefs Name: ???

3) Linux
Prefs Location: ???
Prefs Name: ???

4) iOS
Prefs Location: ???
Prefs Name: ???

5) Android
Prefs Location: ???
Prefs Name: ???

Your guidance is truly appreciated.

Kind regards to all,
