cordova-plugin-market

Cordova (PhoneGap) 3.0+ plugin to open an application on Google Play or iTunes. This plugin is compatible only with Android and iOS.

Instalation

This plugin follows the Cordova 3.0 plugin spec, so it can be installed through the Cordova CLI in your existing Cordova project:

cordova plugin add https://github.com/xmartlabs/cordova-plugin-market

How to use it

When you want to open the device's store do this:

  • For Android use the app's package:

    cordova.plugins.market.open('your.app.package')

  • For iOS, first you need to create an easy-to-read link to your app using App Store Short Links, then use the app name

    cordova.plugins.market.open('yourappname')

This will open the link itms-apps://itunes.com/apps/yourappname

You can also add a success and failure callback like this:

var appId = "...";
cordova.plugins.market.open(appId, {
  success: function() {
    // Your stuff here
  },
  failure: function() {
    // Your stuff here
  }
})
