Platform.resume does not fire from Ionic View, works from local build

Using a local build, started by ionic run, the following works:

    platform.ready().then(() => {   
          if ('cordova')) {
            platform.resume.subscribe(() => {
              //handling update

However, when app is run through Ionic View, no event is fired.

Haven’t used Ionic View before, but are you sure that if('cordova')) is true when you’re running from Ionic View?

Good point, but yes, platform is cordova when run through Ionic View.

Could be I am going about this in a wrong way. Is Ionic view not the intended way to collaborate around an app pre-app-store submission? (For non-devs).
