The button has a ripple effect by default which is actually great. But what happens is that until the ripple effect is complete, the button action is not performed. It results in noticeable delay which gives an impression that the app is slow. To counter this, I disabled the ripple effect completely which does not produce any delay but there is no tap feedback.
Is there a way to speed up the ripple effect? I saw the merged pr code and the ripple effect now returns a promise, which might be the reason of delay.
