Or maybe just use a settings icon instead? The three-dot icon really means 'menu' on Android.
Do we have any new menu items we could add? 
"Settings", "Help", ?
I agree we should do something here. Changing the icon to a gear seems like the simplest solution to me.

Adding a "Help" option somewhere, even just in the settings for right now seems like a good idea, though. Or maybe "Feedback". But this can go in a different bug :)

I like the idea of adding section to offer some quick tips/help to the user and maybe even tell them a little bit about what this thing is/does.

Also, here is the gear icon I made for this a while back... not sure why Ian and I decided to go for the 3 dot instead.. maybe I'll recall later. :P But I think the gear makes a lot of sense still.

Hey Anthony,

Is the settings icon what you were expecting?

APK for bug 1046972, bug 1053208: http://goo.gl/XeFQfY

I checked on sizing, and the gear that is bundled for the action bar [1] is 22px square, while this gear is 18px square (mdpi).
