I’m using Ionic 1, without any back button text (just the back icon) and have noticed that it’s harder to press the back button than in native apps. I’ve experienced it myself and also seen other people using the app having to press the back button multiple times trying to get it to register.
It seems the touch area is too small, smaller than in native, and that’s why it’s hard to press. You can see the area when you tap at the edge of the button (or long press in browser) and the whole thing highlights, showing the small area.
Is there a way I can increase the size of tap area so that it’s closer to native?
