I see that you have your phonegap-version set to an old version (3.5.0) in your config.xml, but it is commented out. This means build will use the default which is now cli-6.3.0 (ios 4.2.0). This is probably causing the differences. Try uncommenting your phonegap-version.
Thanks for the help, that got me to the issue of all of the plugins being called incorrectly. I guess they are all updated now. It works when I build the android version but still won't load into phonegap build for desktop... It just shows the output that doesn't work and there is no css applied.. I wonder if there is a pathing change I need to make or something?
What do you mean by PhoneGap Build for Desktop?
Sorry, maybe it is just called PhoneGap for Windows (Step 1: Install PhoneGap | PhoneGap Docs ). There is no icon showing either.
And no CSS when I load on my phone
This is what it should look like and it works well after building it and installing the apk, even has the icon.
There are no glaring errors in the console either.
Thanks for the help!
