External Links not opening in App created using Creator

I am creating my first project using Ionic Creator. Its a simple app with two buttons to open up Play store links to my apps on play store. All works fine in Creator and also when I download the project and run ‘ionic serve’. However, once I convert it to an apk and load to my phone, nothing happens when I click on the buttons.

Is there something missing in the process?


@gputhige I never used ionic-creator but when you download your project, have a look at the code where the ng-click event occurs. The simplest way will be to read the ADB log error on your Android device or emulator to check if you don’t have any errors.

Hi Devniz
thanks for the response. I managed to solve the issue. The plugin “inappbrowser” had to be added to the project which I did now. The project works fine.

For anyone else finding the same issue, add the above plugin with

cordova plugin add http://git-wip-us.apache.org/repos/asf/cordova-plugin-inappbrowser.git

Ok great that you sorted it!
