I noticed that the performance of my ST 2.0 Beta1 application is not good compared to ST 1.1 on the Playbook (OS 2.0 Beta) device.
Here are some issues I have seen with ST 2.0 Beta1 on Playbook (OS 2.0 Beta):
With ST 1.1, issue # 1 is not a problem, the UI components react to the tap event and the animations are more fluid.
- When tapping on any UI component, I have a hard time getting my tap "recognized". I end up having to tap 4-5 times (sometimes more) before the actual action gets triggered (i.e.: list item selection, button click, etc). It's as if the application is really sensitive to any movement (up/down, left/right) of the finger when tapping, which makes the UI behave as if the tap was really a touchmove/touchstart event. The same behavior can be seen in the Kitchen Sink 2.0 application.
- Also, there is a certain lag in the animations, but this is not as much of a problem as # 1.
I've seen posts on the forum about Playbook performance improvements not being in the short term roadmap of ST 2.0, but I wanted to know if there was an update on this topic for ST 2.0 Beta2 or for the official release of ST 2.0. Are there any usability/performance improvements planned in the upcoming versions of ST 2.0 for the Playbook device ?
The main reason I am asking is because I am seriously considering down-porting my app from 2.0 to 1.1 in order to have a better user experience on the Playbook device.
Thank you for your time
