Hey nararacds, Ken here from appMobi. Right now the plugin does not support the getRemoteData call when using DirectCanvas. I am currently working on expanding the appMobi plugin, part of that process is adding support for items like these.
I will get this working for you, then PM you with the updated file, so you don't have to wait for the official update to be complete. If you would prefer it in an email, just send me your address at email@example.com
