Every Appery.io app comes with the Apache Cordova library automatically installed. This means you have access to default Cordova APIs such as Camera, Contacts, Geolocation, and more. Many users also wanted to add 3rd-party Cordova plugins to the app. To make this process very simple, we’ve added a simple wizard. In this tutorial you are going to learn how to upload a Cordova plugin to your app and use it. You will build an app that will track your route and draw it on a map. The app will do this in the background. (This is a popular feature in fitness apps.)
AngularJS greatly simplifies mobile app development. At the same time, it introduces a number of important concepts that you need to understand in order to create apps quickly. One of the important concepts is working with the scope object and the variables you place in the scope. In this post we are going to show you how to access variables placed in the scope.

- Write and implement any business logic for an app. For example, you can write a script that checks inventory (Database), then sends a push notification, and then sends an e-mail using the SendGrid API
- Quickly test the script during development
- A Server Code script is instantly exposed via a REST API. This means you can quickly build a custom API
