We have an app with tabs on the bottom and a text input in an ion-footer bar as per the elasti-chat example.
IOS works fine but on Android devices we see a blank space between the keyboard and the footer. Appears to be same size as the bottom tabs. Have tried various methods with CSS and keyboard handlers to reposition the footer bar but Ionic is setting it automatically as bottom:313px when actually it should be bottom: 269px. This 44px difference corresponds to the height of the bottom tabs.
Utterly frustrated having now spent 3 days trying to solve this and am almost suicidal. Any suggestions very gratefully received.
Using plugin: com.ionic.keyboard 1.0.4 and Ionic 1.0.0
