Allow unverified ssl certificate in UIWebview

I'm embedding a website in a UIWebView. During development I have it pointed at localhost. The problem is that whenever it hits a "https://" url it doesn't load. When I load the url in mobile safari I get this popup:

Is there a way to override this with the UIWebView to allow the unverified url?

Answer

There is a complete answer here that allows the UIWebView to load pages from a site with an untrusted certificate.
