Cordova App Version Plugin

Cordova/PhoneGap plugin for accessing the native app's version and build number within JavaScript. The values are bootstrapped at app load and can be used synchronously.

Supported Platforms

  • iOS
  • Android


The plugin can be installed with the Cordova CLI:

cordova plugin add cordova-plugin-appversion

The plugin is hosted on NPM so requires Cordova CLI 5.0.0 as a minimum. If you have any issues installing, make sure you have the most upto date version of Cordova from NPM:

npm install -g cordova


After deviceReady has fired you'll be able to access a new object in the global scope that contains both the app version and build number.

console.log(AppVersion.version); // e.g. "1.2.3" 
console.log(; // e.g. 1234
