When executing SQL queries, it is not possible to use either an ampersand or the equal sign ('&' and '=') without the API crashing. I assume this is because of the way NimbleKit requests are serialized before getting passed to the objective C back end. These characters are acceptable in SQLite, and I need to be able to store them. This seems like a bug that the NimbleKit team will have to work out. If there is a temporary work around I would greatly appreciate it.
