Button title + icon alignment

I'm looking at the Snapost code & like the look of the buttons for my initial menu of options. The app will be multi-language so the approach of using images with the text actually in the image isn't going to work for me.

The I've scrubbed some of your examples so that the background is plain, then I use the 'title' property, and 'icon' property.

There are 2 problems with this;

  1. There is no way to align the text + icon. It's centred and I'd rather they were left-aligned.

  2. On Android (SDK2.1) the icon is stretched across the whole button & the title font isn't the same as the iPhone (I guess specifying 'font' would sort this out).

var gallery = Titanium.UI.createButton({


Here's a screenshot to illustrate what I'm on about;
