Android app is very sluggish in general. Often I need to tap an UI element a few times before it responds.
For example, this happens when I create new items in a Set, by clicking on the +. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t. The + always flashes to reflect the tap. But sometimes nothing is created.
But the sluggishness happens everywhere else too. There is no other app I use that feels so slow and/or unresponsive.
Moto G 5s
Could you share (an estimate of) how many objects you have in your Anytype account?
Sure! Almost none.
I’m not using AT for my notes yet, so I just do tests.
I currently have 2 big pages (copy/paste from wikipedia articles for 2 countries) and dozens of tiny tests in various note types (with just one line or a couple of blocks).
With such a small number of pages I would not expect the app to be sluggish or laggy. I do think the Moto G 5s is an older (the model is approaching its fifth anniversary) and lower-end smartphone. As you mentioned you do not experience similar issues with other apps: what other kinds of apps are you using? On my almost 5y old phone, a Huawei Mate 10 Pro, I sometimes notice some less-smooth screen transitions, but I have that with all apps (even the browser ), so it might just be the hardware in my case.
Yeah it’s a relatively old model, but all apps I use run fine on it.
Anyway, I don’t mean the kind of sluggishness you get from a slow phone.
It feels like something to do with the app itself (take my comments with a grain of salt… not a developer!).
For example, every time Google Maps adds new features, it runs a bit slower on my phone. Things take longer to load etc. However, it always works. Once things are there, the UI is responsive. If I tap on something, I get feedback that something is happening (or going to happen) etc. On Anytype the app just feels… glitchy.
It would be great if you could provide more information.
I will say right away that this will require some additional steps if you are willing to put in the time.
What should be done:
Activate developer mode
Enable GPU rendering in Developer Options. Color bars will appear
检查 GPU 渲染速度和过度绘制 | Android 开发者 | Android Developers
Record on video scenarios in which the application is slow.
The best way to do this is to install Android Studio and connect by wire to a computer and record video
Record a video | Android Developers
If it’s too difficult, you can try to record your phone screen from another phone.
- Send the video to me in direct messages
Thank you very much for your helping.
Ok! Will post here if I manage to do it
