1. Set your App_ID (iOS only), Dev_Key and enable AppsFlyer to detect installations, sessions (app opens) and updates.

This is the minimum requirement to start tracking your app installs and is already implemented in this plugin. You MUST modify this call and provide:
-devKey - Your application devKey provided by AppsFlyer. -appId - For iOS only. Your iTunes Application ID.

Add the following lines to your code to be able to initialize tracking with your own AppsFlyer dev key:

for pure Cordova:
document.addEventListener("deviceready", function(){
   var options = {
             devKey:  'xxXXXXXxXxXXXXxXXxxxx8'// your AppsFlyer devKey               

    var userAgent = window.navigator.userAgent.toLowerCase();
    if (/iphone|ipad|ipod/.test( userAgent )) {
        options.appId = "123456789";            // your ios app id in app store        
}, false);
For Ionic 1
  $ionicPlatform.ready(function() {      
    var options = {
           devKey:  'xxXXXXXxXxXXXXxXXxxxx8'// your AppsFlyer devKey               
    if (ionic.Platform.isIOS()) {
        options.appId = "123456789";            // your ios app id in app store
