How to open default browser to a specific url from Mobile Publisher App (andriod/ios)?

Is there any way that I can open the default browser from my branded mobile publisher app and to a specific url? There seems to be limitaion on file download in mobile apps and as a workaround I am trying to open the default browser(eg. chrome for android, safari for ios) on the mobile device to download the file. I am looking for something similar like Inappbrowser plugin (http://cordova.apache.org/docs/en/9.x/reference/cordova-plugin-inappbrowser/index.html) in Cordova that can be handled from JS code - 
cordova.InAppBrowser.open('http://apache.org', '_system', 'location=yes');

Of if something can be achieved through configuration, that would be great!

I don't think it is possible because there isn't any out of the box fields where you can input the specific URL
