$http post works on browser but not on device


I’m doing google login and I’m having problem with $http post method for retrieving access token. I’ve made a factory that handles login and gathering data after successful login. The problem is that POST method takes some time and the view is already trying to load. So I decided to deal with that problem using $q.defer() and it all works fine in the browser but when I try it on my phone it won’t work.

This is what happens in my controller:

$scope.googleLogin = function() {

            function () {
            function () {
                alert('OpenGoogle login failed');

In OpenGoogle factory this is my login function:

function login() {

        deferredLogin = $q.defer();

        tokenStore['loginType'] = 'google';

        var loginWindow = $window.open(GOOGLE_CODE_URL + '?scope=email%20profile&redirect_uri=' + redirectURI + '&response_type=code&client_id=' + googleClientID, '_blank', 'location=no');

        if(runningInCordova) {
            loginWindow.addEventListener('loadstart', function(event) {
                var url = event.url;
                if (url.indexOf("code=") > 0 || url.indexOf("error=") > 0) {

            loginWindow.addEventListener('exit', function () {
                // Handle the situation where the user closes the login window manually before completing the login process
                deferredLogin.reject({error: 'user_cancelled', error_description: 'User cancelled login process', error_reason: "user_cancelled"});
        return deferredLogin.promise;

And my oauthCallback looks like this:

function oauthCallback(url) {
        var code,
            obj, request;
        if (url.indexOf("code=") > 0) {
            code = url.substr(url.indexOf('=') + 1);
                method: "POST",
                url: GOOGLE_TOKEN_URL,
                data: {
                    code: code,
                    client_id: googleClientID,
                    client_secret: googleClientSecret,
                    redirect_uri: redirectURI,
                    grant_type: 'authorization_code'
            .success( function(data) {
                tokenStore['googleToken'] = data.access_token;
                tokenStore['googleRefreshToken'] = data.refresh_token;
                var now = new Date().getTime();
                //Calculate exactly when the token will expire, then subtract
                //one minute to give ourselves a small buffer.
                tokenStore['googleExp'] = now + parseInt(data.expires_in, 10) * 1000 - 60000;
            .error( function(data, status, headers, config) {
        } else if (url.indexOf("error=") > 0) {
        } else {
            deferredLogin.reject({error: 'error occurred', error_description: 'Unknown', error_reason: "Unknown"});

For some reason on my phone I get an alert OpenGoogle login failed as if promise returns reject but in my browser everything works fine.


It could also be that the app does not have appropriate internet permissions. You should check if its in phone’s browser, or if other internet functions are working.


No, unfortunately it is not internet problem, other internet funciona are working normally.


Have you whitelisted the URL?



Yes, I’ve tried with that too, and still I got the same alert.
When I put the deferredLogin.resolve(); outside of http callback then function just run through the code and returns, before http post retrieves the data. That’s why I’ve put deferredLogin.resolve(); inside the success callback. I hope that I’m doing that part right.
