Use from Javascript

If you are using jQuery, AngularJS, WinJS or any Promise/A library (Bluebird), promise style is supported. Use something like:

cordova.getAppVersion.getVersionNumber().then(function (version) {

If not, pass a callback function:

cordova.getAppVersion.getVersionNumber(function (version) {

In addition to the version number you can also retrieve other details about your application:


Returns the name of the app. E.g. "My Awesome App"


Returns the package name of the app - the reversed domain name app identifier like com.example.myawesomeapp


Returns the build identifier of the app


Returns the version number of the app
