              /* When this function is called, PhoneGap has been initialized and is ready to roll */

              function onDeviceReady()
                        // do your thing!
                        //url :refers to the file url
                        //filepath : path for downloaded file (be sure to put /www/your downloadfolder name/filename)
  1. add the plugin to your PhoneGap,plist file found in (Supporting Files > PhoneGap.plist) :
    Key: PixFileDownload
    Type: String
    Value: PixFileDownload
  1. now we need to add the pixfiledownload declaration to AppDelegate.m found in (Classes > AppDelegate.m) your file should look like this

so it looks like this now:

    #import "AppDelegate.h"
        #import <PhoneGap/PhoneGapViewController.h>
        #import "PhoneGapViewController.h"

    #import "PixFileDownload.h"

    @implementation AppDelegate

now the plugin is ready to work
