On a real android device running 4.4.2 kitkat

I am including
$timeout, $cordovaFileTransfer
in the dependencies for the controller and am using the standard code from

I have included the plugins
cordova plugin add org.apache.cordova.file
cordova plugin add org.apache.cordova.file-transfer

My plugins listed my “cordova plugins ls” are
com.ionic.keyboard 1.0.3 "Keyboard"
org.apache.cordova.console 0.2.12 "Console"
org.apache.cordova.device 0.2.13 "Device"

My hunch is that this issue was related to me using a slightly older version of ngCordova. When I started with a fresh project readded ngCordova with bower, it worked. I hope this helps anyone else in the same position.

Have the same error… Already tried everything… Does anyone help or answer?! I’m using only newest releases of Ionic&ngCordova

Install ngCordova in your project.

It works for me!
