skin String

The skin to apply to the application. Currently, Kendo UI Mobile ships with nova, flat, material-light and material-dark skins in addition to the native looking ones. You can also set platform variants with it ("android-light" or "android-dark").

Note: The Material themes were renamed to material-light and material-dark in 2014 Q3 SP1. With 2014 Q3 (v2014.3.1119) and older Kendo UI versions, material and materialblack skin names should be used.

The skin setting will be applied on any device, making the application look the same way.
