Contributions to Cordova / PhoneGap

Click Innovate have been at the forefront of Cordova (PhoneGap) app development for a couple of years now and are continually pushing forward and sharing fixes and plugins with the app development community.

A new open source SMS Messaging Plugin has been published for free on the Click Innovate code repository to aid developers in bridging functionality between PhoneGap / Cordova’s UIWebView and the native iOS SMS Messaging features.

Here’s an example of how easy it now is for other PhoneGap developers to send an SMS Message directly from their JavaScript:

window.plugins.smsmessage.send("This is a test message", "07123456789");

There’s also support for sending to multiple recipients at the same time:

window.plugins.smsmessage.send("This is a test message", "07123456789,07987654321");

Click Innovate’s lead developer and Cordova contributor has also been tackling other challenges such as:

  • Embedding YouTube videos within a cross-platform PhoneGap application
  • Writing a function to detect when a phone has been shaken (a “shake gesture”), which is also working cross-platform (tested on iOS and Android devices). You can grab the code here.
