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.
Good one. I had forgotten about this. I have a new phone now (a Pixel 5). Not experiencing the issues from my OP. So maybe my old phone was just too slow.
By the way, in one of my comments I mention that tapping the + in a Set doesn’t consistently create new entries in the grid. I just tried that and again couldn’t see entries being created. But then I realized they were being created, but I need to scroll down every time. In other words, Anytype mobile doesn’t automatically scroll to show the newly created entry on top (which should be the behaviour in my opinion).
Not sure if this is what was happening before (and I just didnt notice)… Regardless, I’m happy to have my OP marked as Solved.
