    I'm working with the Friends Sample App and it appears that it is hard-coded with the Kendo UI Flat theme. Does anyone know how to enable the native theme support so that if viewing on iPhone, the iOS native theme shows and if view on Android, the Android native theme shows?

    Thank you.

    Hello Matthew,

    Indeed the Friends app is initialized as a with a flat skin. The application is initialized in the app.js file and the skin is set as descried in the Kendo.Mobile.Applicaiton Configuration tutorial.

    If you instead change the skin setting from flat to an empty string:
    // Initialize KendoUI mobile application
    var mobileApp = new, {
        transition: 'slide',
        layout: 'mobile-tabstrip',
        statusBarStyle: statusBarStyle,
        skin: ''
    you will get a native look and feel of the app as the skin will depend on the device on which the app is currently running on. Please give this a try and let us know if it helps.
