This Flutter plugin provides an API for querying information about an application package.
You can use the PackageInfo to query information about the application package. This works both on iOS and Android.
import 'package:package_info_plus/package_info_plus.dart'; ... // Be sure to add this line if `PackageInfo.fromPlatform()` is called before runApp() WidgetsFlutterBinding.ensureInitialized(); ... PackageInfo packageInfo = await PackageInfo.fromPlatform(); String appName = packageInfo.appName; String packageName = packageInfo.packageName; String version = packageInfo.version; String buildNumber = packageInfo.buildNumber;
As noted on issue 20761, package_info on iOS
requires the Xcode build folder to be rebuilt after changes to the version string in
Clean the Xcode build folder with:
XCode Menu -> Product -> (Holding Option Key) Clean build folder.

Android (and potentially all platforms)
PackageInfo.fromPlatform() before the
runApp() call will cause an exception.
