    Does Icenium support the new iBeacon features in iOS 7?

    The iBeacon feature relies on the bluetooth of the device, which is not exposed out of the box in Cordova. However there are custom Cordova plugins that can help you utilize bluetooth of the device e.g.: BluetoothSerial.

    For more information on running custom Cordova plugins in Icenium, refer to our documentation: Working with Custom Plugins.

    I am trying to get my Icenium App to work with an iBeacon device, but I don't seem to be having any luck using the recommended BluetoothSerial plugin.  The plugin seems to be working fine and I can call the functions that are available with success.  However, my iBeacon devices just don't seem to be registering as available by the List function.  They are picked up fine with the iBeacon app store demo app though.  And they are Bluetooth LE devices, so technically they should work.  Anyway, not sure if this is the right forum to be seeking help, but I was just wondering if anyone else has had any success with getting this plugin to work with an iBeacon device?
