Dear Cesar,

Thank you for your message.

In Android, MOCA Plugin needs to be started in a class that inherits from Application, and this class should be declared in the AndroidManifest.xml

For the Cordova plugin, this is configured when the plugin is installed, however it not always possible to configure automatically it as it heavily depends on the project configuration itself.

How to solve it

Please go to the AndroidManifest.xml file of the Android project and add the following field to the application tag:



If there is an existing class here, you will need to manually edit it and add the logic of the com.innoquant.moca.phonegap.MOCApp class, as you can only have one single class declared here.

Please let us know if you have any issue with this, or send us an email to
