Faster page transitions trick

The animations on Sidemenu starter template are far from being smooth (besides the sidemenu itself).
You can see when you click on an item of the playlist and it loads the playlist.html page.

I found a strange behavior that makes these animations super smooth. Modifying the menu.html file to have no animation on the nav-view, adding nav-transition="none" to <button class="button button-icon button-clear ion-navicon" menu-toggle="left"> somehow makes the transition smooth and fast if you first click to open and close the sidemenu.

Maybe this can help the developers finding out what makes those transitions appear laggy.

Did anyone test this?

I’m seeing similar behaviour, just removing the animations directive on the ion-nav-view seems to have solved it.

Crosswalk seems to solve the issue. Strange thing is that i’m running Lollipop 5.0.1. Have you tried that?

This was actually in “iOS”, weirdly for me android (nexus 4- lolipop) was behaving much faster and slicker than iOS (8.02).
