Recently, Cordova added the ability to require Android libraries as Gradle dependencies. This helps with projects that can share dependencies, as well as saving a manual installation step. Because of some user-reported conflicts with other Cordova plugins, I updated the Twilio PhoneGap plugin to support Gradle installation of the Android support v4 library.

Check out the latest here – I also need to do another compatibility round of testing with the latest Cordova and Twilio libraries.
