In Ionic View, a single click changes state but immediately reverts to the original state


In a browser session using ionic serve -l, or in an emulator, everything behaves as expected. But once I preview my app inside the IOS Ionic View app, clicking on a new tab or a list item (which also changes state to a new view) leads to unpredictable changes. Specifically, if on tab 2, pressing tab 1 will momentarily switch to tab 1, then revert to tab 2. Sometimes it works correctly, but probably a third of the time it will revert back (though it will behave incorrectly in streaks). Similarly, pressing a list item descends briefly into a new view, but immediately returns as if I had pressed the back button, while at other times works correctly. Also, it never wanders, say from tab 2 to 3 to 1–it always returns to the initial state.

The common denominator seems to be state changes, and don’t believe I have implemented any changes to key press behavior. I don’t know if this is a problem with Ionic View or my app, and can’t find anything similar reported here in the forum. Thanks!


I’ve seen similar problems, but the iOS9 patch seems to solve them.


Thanks Tony–that definitely seems to have fixed the issue.

For the benefit of others, the three steps are:

  1. Add ‘ngIOS9UIWebViewPatch’ to angular.module() in the app.js
  2. Add the angular-ios9-uiwebview.patch.js file somewhere, like www/lib
  3. Add the correct corresponding path to the patch in index.html:
