At Aila, we love to partner with our customers in order to bring digital experiences to life. For those using a Cordova application, we have some exciting news. We are thrilled to announce the Aila TrueScan Cordova wrapper, which makes it a snap to integrate our TrueScan technology into your app. So if you’re looking to bring your Apache Cordova-based app in-store, it’s easier than ever to adapt that app experience onto a scanning-enabled kiosk or handheld mobile device. This Aila TrueScan Cordova Plugin is available on our development resources page.
What is Apache Cordova?
This platform is a great resource for apps that operate on multiple platforms.
Should I use Cordova to build my app?
If you’re thinking about building an app on Cordova, here are a few things to consider:
- If you need to leverage your app across platforms or leverage a code base from HTML/JS/CSS, Cordova may be a good option.
- Keep in mind that plugins are a critical piece of the Cordova platform. You can search for existing plugins using the Cordova Plugin Registry.
- Also, as with a mobile project, consider whether tablets and mobile phones will have a responsive or universal experience. This has design implications and can impact the scope of your project.
- If offline support is required, you may need to take this into account in your effort. It may be helpful to add a Cordova Network/Connection plugin to help detect this condition so that you can design different experiences.
