⚠️ Adding AD_ID permission for Android ⚠️

In v6.8.0 of the AppsFlyer SDK, we added the normal permission to the SDK's AndroidManifest, to allow the SDK to collect the Android Advertising ID on apps targeting API 33. If your app is targeting children, you need to revoke this permission to comply with Google's Data policy. You can read more about it here.

Starting from version 6.1.10 iOS SDK comes in two variants: Strict mode and Regular mode. Please read more here
Change to Strict mode

After you installed the AppsFlyer plugin, go to the ios folder inside platform folder:

cd platform/ios  

open the Podfile and replace pod 'AppsFlyerFramework', '6.1.1' with pod 'AppsFlyerFramework/Strict', '6.1.1'

Run pod install inside the ios folder

inside xcode, go to your target and define Preprocessor Macro AFSDK_NO_IDFA=1
Add Preprocessor macro

  • You can add the Preprocessor Macro using our Hooks.

Change to Regular mode

Go to the ios folder inside platform folder:

cd platform/ios  

open the Podfile and replace pod 'AppsFlyerFramework/Strict', '6.1.1' with pod 'AppsFlyerFramework', '6.1.1'

Run pod install inside the ios folder

inside xcode, go to your target and remove the Preprocessor Macro AFSDK_NO_IDFA=1

Great installation and setup guides can be viewed here.

Set your App_ID (iOS only), Dev_Key and enable AppsFlyer to detect installations, sessions (app opens) and updates. > This is the minimum requirement to start tracking your app installs and is already implemented in this plugin. You MUST modify this call and provide:

devKey - Your application devKey provided by AppsFlyer.

appId - For iOS only. Your iTunes Application ID.

waitForATTUserAuthorization - For iOS14 only. Time for the sdk to wait before launch.

Add the following lines to your code to be able to initialize tracking with your own AppsFlyer dev key:

document.addEventListener('deviceready', function() {  
  devKey: 'K2***************99', // your AppsFlyer devKey  
  isDebug: false,  
  appId: '41*****44', // your ios appID  
  waitForATTUserAuthorization: 10, //time for the sdk to wait before launch - IOS 14 ONLY!  
 }, (result) => {  console.log(result);  
 }, (error) => {  console.error(error);  
 } );  }, false);  

See the full API available for this plugin.

Check out the demo for this project here.

There is 1 demo project called demoC, run npm run setup_c in the appsflyer-cordova-plugin folder and then open the ios project in Xcode to see implementation for IOS 14.

Check out our Sample-App Let's cook! here if you want to implement our SDK inside React-Cordova app

NOTICE! In AppsFlyer Cordova plugin version 6.x.x we replaced the word track with log from all our api but Ionic-Navite Appsflyer plugin still uses track

So the latest version that can work with Ionic-Native for now is 5.4.30

Using the window object directly

Install the cordova plugin:

$ ionic cordova plugin add cordova-plugin-appsflyer-sdk  

In your main ts file, declare a window variable:

declare var window;  

Now you can use the AppsFlyer plugin directly from cordova:

import {Component} from '@angular/core';  
import {Platform} from '@ionic/angular';  
declare var window;  
export class HomePage {  
  constructor(public platform: Platform) {  
  this.platform.ready().then(() => {  
  window.plugins.appsFlyer.initSdk(options, success, error);  
 }); }}
