    Have created a backbutton:
    <div data-role="navbar">
        <span data-role="view-title"></span>
        <a data-role="backbutton" data-align="left"></a>

    When viewing in the device simulator for ios, it shows a left arrow icon. When I switch to an adroid device, it has nothing.
    If I add the text "back", it shows both the text and the icon and it does not align vertically well. It only shows the word "back" on android.

    Project is in Telerik Platform using Kendo UI Core 2014.2.1107

    Hi Rick,

    The backbutton follows the Android style guidelines where the back buttons in the native applications do not have back arrow. The same is displayed in our online demos as well:

    Showing the back navigation arrow on Android is not supported, and if you want to show you will need to add custom CSS rules that will handle it.
