Thanks for the update Steve. Couple Things:
1) I may be doing something wrong, but the events don't fire in Ion either as far as I can tell. I don't see the alert.
2) I discovered InAppBrowser from a post that said it did work including a video http://www.icenium.com/resources/forums/icenium-general-discussion/childbrowser-plug-in-how-to-use-it-#sJO-mpnKoEyZRuFE8B1kwQ
(In fairness the video did not show the events though)
3) If it is not supported in the Simulator, it would be really really appreciated if the demo apps could say that it is not supported in the simulator. I'm wasting time trying to figure out if it is my issue, Iceniums, or the plugin itself. I hope you understand.
Any ETA on when the next release with InAppBrowser will be available and working?
Thanks again, you guys are great!
