Deploy to Volt vs Make Native App with VoltBuilder

If I use ‘Deploy to Volt’ (instead of VoltBuilder), I get ‘Uncaught ReferenceError:cordova is not defined’
Do I lose the ability to use plugins (like the barcode scanner) if I don’t use VoltBuilder?

(The broader question is, I am trying to share with my iPhone users without having to go through all the Apple hoops. I am just rewording my question because I’m pretty sure I am driving the leadership team nuts)

Correct. If you want to use plugins, build with VoltBuilder.
