Fetching RSS news on iOs sometimes completely freezes app



I have a problem with loading rss-news on app-startup. On android everything works fine, but on iOs the $http.get seems to cause the app to freeze and become unresponsive until it is closed.

This only seems to happen sometimes, and I can’t find a specific reason for it. I already stripped the code down to the minimum, so only the $http.get gets called and no caching is done, but the same issue still occurs.

Im calling the init function is a ionic.Platform.ready. Am I doing something wrong?

My code:

.controller("FeedController", function ($http, $scope, $rootScope, $filter, $timeout) {

    $scope.init = function () {
        console.log("Init called");
        $http.get("https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/services/feed/load", { params: { "v": "1.0", "q": "https://example.com/rssFeed", "num": "50" } });




We got the bug resolved. It actually had nothing to do with $http or any of our code. It was a bug in cordova.
