    This is from a not very experience user 
    I would like to enable my users to like my app on Facebook. The way I have implemented this is very very bad, and worse, it doesn't even work.
    From my JS/HTML5/CSS app (not Kendo), I open a browser window (in a frame with a back button) to my home page, and there's a FB Like button there. The problem is that the user has no way back to the app (in iOS where there's no hardware back button). My question is, can I open another browser window from my app, something similar to HTML's "target="_blank"? Or can I open the FB app directly (if it's installed)? I need for the user to be able to find his way back to my app.
    Does anyone have any suggestions?
    Thanks in advance for your help.

    Hi AlexFStop,

    Thank you for contacting us.

    If I am understanding you correctly, you want to open a child browser from within your app. Then, like a facebook page in it and return back to the application. Please, let me know if I am misunderstanding you by any way. For this, you can directly use the integrated inside AppBuilder InAppBrowser plugin. Here is a sample with it. Please, note the available targets in the above link to the Cordova documentation (_self, _blank or _system) and see which will apply best for your scenario.

    Another possible approach would be a direct integration via the FacebookConnect plugin. You can check this forum thread for further guidance.

    I hope my answer helps.
