Usage

You should first host an XML file on your server with the following data in it:

<update>
    <version>302048</version>
    <name>APK Name</name>
    <url>https://your-remote-api.com/YourApp.apk</url>
</update>

Then use the following code:

import { AppUpdate } from '@ionic-native/app-update/ngx';

constructor(private appUpdate: AppUpdate) {

   const updateUrl = 'https://your-remote-api.com/update.xml';
   this.appUpdate.checkAppUpdate(updateUrl).then(() => { console.log('Update available') });

}

The plugin will compare the app version and update it automatically if the API has a newer version to install.
