    Hello guys,

    We have an app deployed that uses this .css to put the footer on the bottom of the page in Android :

    .km-android .km-view {
      -moz-box-direction: normal;
      -webkit-box-direction: normal;
      -webkit-flex-direction: column-normal;
      -ms-flex-direction: column-normal;
      flex-direction: column-normal;

    it works perfectly fine until Android 4.4, as one customer us recently made aware of. There, the footer stays on top, whatever the changes I can make (I'm no css guru, to be honest).

    I've taken temporary steps to work this around by pushing the content down the size of the footer for version 4.4 and above, is there however anything planned to correct this behaviour, i.e. to allow the footer to be on the bottom for >= 4.4 too ?

    As a matter of fact, this css trick always worked on actual devices but never on the internal AppBuilder Simulator (where we're in any case still stuck to max Android 4.2 anyway).

    Thanks in advance

    Hello Gilles,

    Have you tried using the css described in the Place TabStrip at bottom in Android section of our documentation to place the footer at the bottom. This code should work on all devices so please give it a try and let us know if you experience any issues with it.

    Hello Tina,

    I was using another, seemingly older css, this 'new' one corrects things perfectly, as far as I could test it.

    Thanks a lot!
    Good day
