Hey everyone, am new to this community, so please forgive me if this is covered in another thread.
So ATM I’m having a nightmare trying to get ontop of Android performance issues - and just realized that i’m actually seeing the inverse to what most people seem to be saying: the Android 4.3 webview is totally nailing the Chrome webview in animation/render performance.
Basically, my ionic app (built from the tabs starter project) performs buttery smooth on a Nexus4 (running android 4.3 - non-chrome web-view), and on the Nexus5 (chrome web-view) - it barely manages to animate at all. It’s really quite astounding.
Has anyone else found the same problem?
As a control test, I created a brand new project fresh from the “Tabs” starter template (seems to be running Ionic 1.0.0-beta.8) … and again ran it on both devices. Again the Nexus5 doesn’t manage to animate the slide between the “friends” page and the “friend detail” page at all. The Nexus4 handles it perfectly, rendering a buttery smooth animation between the two states. I’m noticing the same issue with other beta versions too.
Is anyone finding the same? This is totally frustrating.
