Ionic2 material effect at Android

When testing with ionic serve I see the effect over a button like the angular material specifies, but when I deploy the application in an Android device I do not see any effect.

Am I missing something?

Best regards,


I am seeing the same.

I can’t find the post now but I remember reading that there is an issue with animations in the latest beta version (10), was working in beta9

This could be the reason

Depending on the version of android you’re targeting, the animation may be disabled for performance reasons.


Thank you mhartington. You are right!

I tested the application on a Samsumg Edge S7 Duo with Android 6.0.1 and Ionic does the desired material effect. But this phone is a newer one.

I tested on an HTC One with Android 4.4 and it does not the material effect.

I hope Ionic 2 will consider older device users to get some feedback when a button is clicked (button color change for example). If not, they only have to wait if the button was clicked.
