Ion-infinite-scroll call on-infinite function when navigate to other tabs

I have an ionic app based using ion-tabs and ion-infinite-scroll. The infinite scroll is working as well when is in the active tab.

The problem is when the user click to change the tab, the function “loadMore()” is called even ng-if is false.

<ion-view title="Tabs Controller">
    <ion-tabs class="tabs-stable tabs-icon-top">
        <ion-tab title="Tab1" icon="ion-model-s" href="#/app/tab1">
            <ion-nav-view name="tab1"></ion-nav-view>
        <ion-tab title="Tab2" icon="ion-map" href="#/app/tab2">
            <ion-nav-view name="tab2"></ion-nav-view>
<ion-view title="Tab1">
    <ion-content padding="false" class="has-header has-footer">
            <ion-item collection-item-width="'100%'" collection-item-height="100px" collection-repeat="item in items" class="item-thumbnail-left" ng-click="doSomething(item)">
        <ion-infinite-scroll spinner="ripple" immediate-check="false" ng-if="canUpdate()" on-infinite="loadMore()" distance="10%"></ion-infinite-scroll>
.state('tabsController.tab1', {
      url: '/tab1',
      views: {
        'tab1': {
          templateUrl: 'templates/tab1.html',
          controller: 'tab1Ctrl'
    .state('tabsController.tab2', {
      url: '/tab2',
      views: {
        'tab2': {
          templateUrl: 'templates/tab2.html',
          controller: 'tab2Ctrl'
    .state('tabsController', {
      url: '/app',
      templateUrl: 'templates/tabsController.html',
      controller: 'AppCtrl'
$scope.loadMore = function(){
      $log.debug('loadMore called.');
        $scope.items = $scope.items.concat(items);
      .finally(function() {
        $timeout(function() {
          $timeout(function() {

Can someone help me, please?

I’ve encountered this today after updating our app to ionic 1.3.1 from 1.0.1.

Hey there, please check if you have listener like this
$scope.$on(’$stateChangeSuccess’, function () {

in your controller. If you have it, please remove it because it invokes the method every time you switch between tabs.
Hope this helps :wink:
