I am developing a Cordova 3.0.0 application which needs to periodically show notifications to the user. They need to be the kind of notifications that live in the notification center on iOS; modal popups aren’t good enough as the app may be running in the background at the time.

The built-in Notification plugin only provides modal popups: http://docs.phonegap.com/en/3.0.0/cordova_notification_notification.md.html

I have seen 3rd party plugins, such as this: https://github.com/DrewDahlman/Phonegap-LocalNotification
– however, they are developed for much older versions of Cordova/PhoneGap.

Is it possible to use any of these with Cordova 3; or is there a better way to do it (device-independently if at all possible, as I need to have similar behaviour on Android as well as iOS); or would my best option be to downgrade to an older version of Cordova?
