A while back I posted about the tap area being too small and the back button requiring multiple taps to activate. Touch Events Area Too Small
The good news, is that the problem seems to be fixed in 0.9.20-alpha. The bad news is that now tapping a back button that is next to a slideMenu button causes the back event AND the slide menu event.
A plunker is pointless as this only happens on device. The problem doesn’t occur in Chrome with touch events on.
