    I understand there is a bug in Cordova 3.7.0 where custom url does not work from cold start.

    "Please note that Cordova-iOS 3.7.0 has a bug where the 'handleOpenURL' function is not invoked upon cold start."

    Can you please tell me what your plans are to address this issue


    3.8 + Updated Plugin with an estimated release date 

    3.7 + a work around

    We use Estimote Beacons and Custom URL in our App.

    1) Your Estimote Beacons sample app will not build unless we use 3.7

    2) Custom URL Cold Start only works 3.5

    So a way to make Estimote Plugin work on 3.5 would also be a suitable solution.

    Thanks for the feedback

    Hello Mark,

    Indeed the CustomURL plugin does not work well on iOS devices when the app utilizes Cordova 3.7, but the good news is that we are going to integrate Cordova 3.8 which should resolve the issue. Our upcoming major release at the end of the month should contain this version of Cordova so stay tuned.

    The Estimote plugin should work on Cordova 3.5 but I wasn't able to build my app using it either so I logged a bug where you can track its status. Once fixed you can move your app to Cordova 3.5 and use both plugins as a workaround until we release our latest AppBuilder version.


    Visit the Telerik Verified Plugins Marketplace and get the custom Cordova plugin you need, already tweaked to work seamlessly with AppBuilder.
