This plugin allows you to check if an app is installed on the user's device. It requires an URI Scheme (e.g. twitter://) on iOS or a Package Name (e.g com.twitter.android) on Android.

Requires Cordova plugin: cordova-plugin-appavailability. For more info, please see the AppAvailability plugin docs.
