In a previous cordova app I built not using the telerik platform I was able to dial and email like this:
<a id="btn_phone" href="tel:+1-123-123-1234" rel="external" data-role="button" data-icon="phone">call me</a>
<a id="btn_email" href="mailto:email@example.com" rel="external" data-role="button" data-icon="mail">email me</a>
But this is not working for me in my test telerik platform hybrid app.
I saw a similar post and the suggestion was to add a plugin...I thought this behavior was 'built-in' to cordova because in my old app just setting the href to tel: or mailto: opened the dialer or email.
How can I get this to work using the telerik platform?
The requirement is to download a client's phone number and email (doing that) then present links so the user can click the link and open the dialer with the phone number ready to dial, or the email client in compose mode with the email recipient preset.
It should work on android, iphone, and (probably) windows phone.
