      • Native Map plugins

        Using the javascript maps sdks (google maps, bing maps, kendo map) are really not great user experiences and lack the responsiveness of native maps. Ideally Telerik would verify one of the existing plugins for native maps as a plugin.

          • Dynamically change device orientation plugin

            I believe all phonegap/cordova app developers desperately need a way to dynamically change/set the device orientation while an app is running (not just through the config.xml file).
            The plugin should be able to :
            - Query for the current device orientation
            - Lock the device orientation to either "portrait" or "landscape"
            - The plugin should be supported on Android, iOS and Windows Phone devices.

            This plugin would really help in improving quality of apps. For example, apps which have a page that plays inline video can set the device orientation to landscape for a better experience. Whenever the user exits…

                • Version number

                  I want a quick way to retrieve the app's version number in a Cordova plugin, similarly to this plugin https://github.com/whiteoctober/cordova-plugin-app-version.

                  • Apple Touch ID Cordova Plugin

                    Is there a reliable cordova plugin to integrate with Apple Touch ID (on iOS 8+ only) that you recommend? Would like Telerik's help in verifying a good cordova plugin.

                    • In-App Purchase/Billing Plugin for Both iOS and Android.

                      There's two seperate plugins out there now, one for iOS that's very good and one for Android's In App Billing that's good. But one is needed for both with one Javascript interface...

                          • Insomnia

                            This plugin lets you prevent the screen of the device from sleeping. It's really important for apps with not so heavy use, where the user has to wait for something or think for a while.
