I have created an app using Cordova, that I want to release on the Google play store. My app uses other peoples plugins that have a variety of licences, including Apache licence and MIT. I believe that I need to reference their work at some point. how do you recommend I do this? eg in an 'about' popup in app? or does it need to be somewhere specific?

Also, I do not understand how to reference their material. Do I list all the names of people I have referenced? and copy the copyright for each plugin used?

Thanks for any help, or any examples of how people have referenced would be much appreciated.

Through looking at other applications, I have found most have a licence page or tab built into the application, where they list all third party software used, with their original licence pasted.

They usually add their own licence above these

See: Snapchat (android app) licence button built into the app.
