Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-8921) menubutton event not firing
Date Sat, 17 Oct 2015 09:51:05 GMT


Kevin Christopher Henry commented on CB-8921:

If you think the menu button is a bad idea, you should take that up with smartphone manufacturers.
But it's terrible advice to say that app developers should simply ignore it. Users expect
the buttons on their phones to, you know, work.

To wit, every application I just tried on my phone (including Gmail, Facebook, Chrome, Google
Docs, etc.) responded appropriately to the menu button. If we follow your advice the only
effect will be to cripple Cordova apps by comparison with their native peers.

Have tested in hello world app, as well as in my  own app, neither of which register any menubutton
