Announcing ngCordova: Simple Cordova plugin wrappers with angularJS


+7 for FB plugin. That thing is a pain in the neck to integrate


if you could integrate the cordova inapp browser, it would be great


If you could integrate the cordova media plugin, it’d be awesome.


First read on twitter about it . Its exciting news .Its gonna be great fun


It doesn’t work because it uses window.sqlitePlugin. Is that the one from


@max Hello Ionic team and thank you very much for a killer framework!!!
Keep up the good work!

I am wondering if you guys know of a cordova plugin to check if the app is installed on the device?

I found one that checks if app scheme is implemented on iOS - CanOpen

Any thoughts?

Thanks a lot.


Never mind. There is a appAvaliability plugin already in ng-cordoca


function(imageData) {
// Do something with the image
how do i save the image taken to the photo album?



first i want to say thank you for all the great work on ionic and/or ngCordova ! :slight_smile:

Right now i am testing ngCordova (network/camera/barcode) and it works really good and its easy too handle. I wonder if it is possible to use it for NFC-plugins like “PhoneGap NF Plugin” in the near future?

Is there a ionic/Angular way to deal with NFC on android devices?




Hey @mav. I don’t think there is a built in plugin for that yet, but it’s certainly possible. You’d just need to wrap that plugin with an Angular service (see the other ones for an example).


I really want to thank you all for your work: using it, I ended up with a small exercise to measure the noise of the accelerometer of my mobile. The snippet is at

I hope it could be useful to newcomers like me. Have a nice day.


I’m really loving Ionic, it is so great. But I’m having a problem with implementing ngCordova into my application. All of the functions don’t seem to work correctly on my phone. Is there any sample application on github that I can run on my phone? The demo doesn’t run on my phone properly. If there were a demo app with ngCordova built in that would be great! Thanks so much!


Hey @jeresnine. Do you have more info on the device or platform you are running it on? Some functions (like camera) just don’t work on the simulators.


I have a Samsung s4 with android 4.4.2 the ionic apps I build work great but I can’t seen to use the ngcordova plugins. It doesn’t give any errors when I call them, they just don’t do anything. I think I might have set something up wrong, but other sample apps I found on github also do not work on my phone.


I am trying really hard to get the ngCordova plugins to work. Do we have a working git repo somewhere? I have phaggood’s repo on my Nexus 4 running android 4.4.4. for me only the geolocation function is working. Could you please point me in the right direction.



Yes +1 on this. I have been having a really hard time getting this setup. Seems like very important functionality to have turn-key.


Is it possible to use ng-cordova with phonegap build ?


thank you max.
i love the new cordova plugin wrappers. i’ve read each and every official doc about them :smile:.
Please could you give an example to use the $cordovaPush plugin.
thanks in advance


How to retrieve all contacts from phone in ng-cordova.


This is great! How do you guys feel about having $cordovaDialogs fall back to regular js alert/confirm if the plugin is not present. It would be helpful when developing in browser.
