    Hi. Firstly awesome software. Very easy to use. 
    I just have a problem with the speed of the application i have developed. I am using a galaxy note 10.1 and the app is just a basic one page html, js and kendio ui . There is a bit javascript but not that much (9external files). I have a styled radio button and when i click it it takes about 3 sections to select the checked state. This is with all the click events, even the kendo ui elements. I was wondering if this is just a issue when in debug mode or if maybe i have missed a step in the setup and configuration but it is much slower then all the apps i have used on the tablet. I can not really test it on my pc as i am using .less css which does not work in the current version of icenium simulator.

    Thanks

    Hello Tim,

    The behavior you observe is not normal, as one of the goals of hybrid apps is to be hardly recognizable from native apps and offer the same experience. Clearly 3 seconds is not the kind of experience that users get on native apps. You mentioned that you cannot test this on PC as you're using .less, however you can still test this directly in Chrome and use the Web Inspector to see if there isn't something generally wrong with your javascript or css. If you remove the styling from your application, does the performance improve? What about testing on another device, to exclude the possibility of this being device specific problem?

    If you're having hard time tracking down the problem, please share the name of your application and we can take a look at it (with your consent of course).

    Thanks Steve.

    I have actually decided not to use .less for now and it is not that much of an issue, i am using jquery mobile which already has most of the major theming work done. So I have re-started the development ( i was not too far in ) .

    I am using all the standard controls in jquery mobile but it still seems to be a bit slow-ish, When i use chrome it works 100% and even in the icenium simulator it works like it should . That is why I think just might have to do with the fact that its  ... i dont know actually, I hope that when it is published it works smoothly. I was thinking maybe there was configuration i still need to do for the " run on device " to get is smooth .

    I have no problem with you taking a look at it . The project is called litterbox on my account.

    So I was messing around with the properties configuration and there is a option for Hardware acceleration. I enabled that and it seems to be working 100% now!

    Hi Tim,

    Glad that it is working as expected now. You might want to take a look at the following forum thread that discusses the Hardware Acceleration.

    All the best,
