This happens only when using ion-header-bar, ion-content, or ion-footer-bar directives, and their respective div classes (“bar”, “content”, etc.). None of it shows up when using the stock browser for Android 2.3.6. However, Firefox on the same phone works fine. As such, the Phonegap app also doesn’t behave correctly.
Ion-slide-box on the stock browser for Android 2.3.6 only shows a blank page instead of slide contents
AFAIK, Ionic targets Android 4.0+. The directives that don’t work might use features that older Android WebViews do not provide. Reference.
