I’ve got a phonegap app. On deviceReady I set
window.location.href to some other URL. This works great on iOS 8.3 but on Android 5.0.1 I get asked if I want to open it in Chrome and then it’s opened in Chrome instead of my app.
Is there way to get the URL to open in the app (as in replace the current page). Yes I know that’s not best practice, a one page app is better, blah blah blah but that doesn’t fit my use case at the moment.
If you are using cordova 5 (or above) with the android platform 4.0.0 (or above), have a look at: https://github.com/apache/cordova-plugin-whitelist
install the plugin via:
cordova plugin add https://github.com/apache/cordova-plugin-whitelist.git --save
in your config.xml you need to add:
<allow-navigation href="https://example.com/*" />
thanks to that, you will allow the webview to load your page.
if this doesn’t work, install inAppBrowser plugin and use this
and of course inside device ready function.
