We have moved to a new Sailfish OS Forum. Please start new discussions there.

Too slow scrolling in Android apps. And then suddenly too fast. Annoying, let's fix it.

IMHO, one of the reason people want to clearly separate Android apps in app store is their suboptimal performance. So here's a particular item of high annoyance.

Many times I noticed the same problem with scrolling through long screens in Android apps (e.g. Facebook or Instagram). List scrolling flicks are not registered right away, you need to move your finger more than in native apps, still scrolling happens rather slowly. Then once in a while things go the other way around and a small flick moves scrolls Instagram some 2-4 screens.

Let's fix it.

Somehow I feel that this isn't top priority problem. There is much to do in sailfish and I prefer sailfishOS leaving beta stage behind before fixing annoyance in android behavior (it's still working).

Focus should be on getting Sailfish OS finished and having more native apps. Performance tuning of Android layer shouldn't be top priority.

Indeed, why did Jolla waste time on Android support at all! True fans should have used N900 until this days anyway, sure they can live without Instagram, read-it-laters, games, etc. And facebook in the browser is good enough anyway :D

The sudden acceleration also happens with native SFOS apps. So this is not an error related to Android only.
