Probably Angular 2 will be soon but we should have a solution by now.
I expect something similar than this: http://devblog.orgsync.com/react-list/ (it could be better but it has a good performance)
After a lot of test the problem is the js scroll. It causes a lot of lag in the lists. When will we able to use native scroll in collection-repeat? By now the solution is use ng-repeat with overflow-scroll=true (native scroll) in the specific view.
i think collection-repeat works with native scrolling since 1.0
@bengtler Look at this line of Ionic code: https://github.com/driftyco/ionic/blob/master/js/angular/directive/content.js#L76
