After spending some time trying to implement routes for my app using the following documentation I found that the codepen was out of date and no longer works with Ionic 1.0.0-beta.1
After implementing routes and navigation in my app I found that the back button does not show up.
For comparison, here is the original codepen: http://codepen.io/ionic/pen/6d3f67226cbecc8383cc8680b6d3832a
And here is mine:
All I did was update Ionic to the latest and it breaks the back button.
If someone that is familiar with the latest code could help out and get this working,
I am willing to put in the time to fork and update the related documentation.
