    As a newbie it would be nice if there was an help section easy accassable about the core function functionallity. 

    I agree that most of them are self explaining but some are not-

    For example

    - Console
    - Device
    - File vs. File Transfer

    For example I turned of notifications (which is the only one not starting with a capital letter btw) because I though it had to do with push notifications 

    but it turned out that it was needed for my 

    function exitFromApp() {
        navigator.notification.confirm(
            'Do you want to close the app?', 
            closeApp,
            'My App',
            'Yes, No' 
            );
    }

    Hello Markus,

    It's awesome that you're so eager to explore the new configurable core plugin architecture. Your input is appreciated.

    The core plugins that you see now are actually the good old core Cordova APIs. It's just that in Apache Cordova 3.0.0, the Cordova team turned the APIs (up to this point always included and accessible) into a set of core plugins. The main goal being to make developing lightweight apps a bliss. So, basically, each and every core plugin you see in our UI is actually already documented here.

    If you're interested in how the core plugins work in Icenium, you can consult with this doc article. It's really an out-of-the-box working feature. Make sure to enable only the core plugins you need and code away based on the official Cordova API reference.

    Also, thank you for reporting the typo in our UI. We will make sure to fix it an upcoming release. 

    Regards,

    Dear Iva

    Thanks for the two links - exactely what I needed. I could be helpfull to have the two links on the plugin page :-)

    maybe like the i on the integrated plugins which would take you to the corresponding cordova page. I know when it changes than you have to keep up. But it would have helped me .

    Markus

    PS: I cannot attach images :-(

    Dear Iva

    a) just saw vibration has not capital letter in the beginning either
    b) how about sorting them alphabetically by name

    Also there is some missmatch 

    Battery
    Console
    File Transfer
    Vibration

    Can not directly be found

    Network Inforamtion -> Connection

    The better the two worlds match the quicker we/I find stuff.

    Markus

    PS: anything about the inability to attach png images here?
