We get inquiries from a lot of new users that have never created an app for mobile devices or have used different platform of choice. This is completely natural as most of them are existing Telerik customers and Telerik has just stepped into the mobile market. So my reply was aiming to be thorough, not condescending.
As we were not able to reproduce the problem in our local tests, I've tried your app and indeed there was no menu button. I've pinpointed this to be caused by specifying targetSdkVersion in the AndroidManifest.xml file. Removing that from the manifest and redeploying the app, shows the menu button as expected. More information is available in this blog post
"If you set either
targetSdkVersion to 11 or higher, the system will not add the legacy overflow button."
We already have a feature request to make the livesync behavior consistent between Android and iOS, so that no Menu button is required.
