I’m interested in’s service and decided to move away from phonegap last week. i tried service with PRO PLAN, smooth for ANDROID BUILD. But problems with IOS BUILD.

I’m frustrated with the UIWebView problem on IOS, after 3 days of trying everything there is no solution.

Help Please

We’ve got documentation on dealing with this issue, but at first glance, it looks like you are ok. Are there any messages in the log about UIWebView?

i need this plugin for fixing this bug


It’s under review now - should be ready today.

Go ahead and use it!

perfect :smiley:

and now i need this plugin, but not on NPM

If it’s not on npm, you have a couple of choices:

  1. Contact the author and ask them to add it to npm.
  2. Sign up for an Enterprise Plan, which allows custom Plugins.

ok, I have contacted the author, and now I need this plugin

We’re looking at it now.

The plugin is now available.

There is no need to note plugins here - new ones get picked up automatically by our build process.
