Usage

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';

PackageInfo packageInfo = await PackageInfo.fromPlatform();

String appName = packageInfo.appName;
String packageName = packageInfo.packageName;
String version = packageInfo.version;
String buildNumber = packageInfo.buildNumber;

Or in async mode:

PackageInfo.fromPlatform().then((PackageInfo packageInfo) {
  String appName = packageInfo.appName;
  String packageName = packageInfo.packageName;
  String version = packageInfo.version;
  String buildNumber = packageInfo.buildNumber;
});

Known Issues

iOS

As noted on issue 20761, package_info on iOS requires the Xcode build folder to be rebuilt after changes to the version string in pubspec.yaml. Clean the Xcode build folder with: XCode Menu -> Product -> (Holding Option Key) Clean build folder.

Check out our documentation website to learn more. Plus plugins documentation

Android (and potentially all platforms)

Calling to PackageInfo.fromPlatform() before the runApp() call will cause an exception. See https://github.com/fluttercommunity/plus_plugins/issues/309

Important: As of January 2021, the Flutter team is no longer accepting non-critical PRs for the original set of plugins in flutter/plugins, and instead they should be submitted in this project. You can read more about this announcement here. as well as in the Flutter 2 announcement blog post.
