    I've come across some strange behaviour that only affects iOS devices. We have a hybrid app built using Apache Cordova, and everything works as expected but we've been seeing some odd scrolling behaviour on certain iOS devices. When you swipe to scroll it may take a couple of swipes, or there is a slight delay between the swipe and the scrolling.

    It doesn't affect Android and it doesn't affect all iOS devices. The affected versions are an iPhone running iOS v9.3.5 and an iPad running iOS v9.3.2.

    Has anyone else come across this issue, and if so, did you manage to resolve it? It's not a deal breaker and we're happy to release our app regardless.

    Kind regards

    Hello Dominic,

    I am copying my suggestions from the support thread here, in case anyone else has a similar issue and is interested in the possible causes.

    Possible Kendo UI-related causes:
    • If your problematic view has a ListView with endless scrolling enabled, it is possible that the load time for the data is longer and the ListView cannot bind fast enough to new items. You can try increasing the DataSource page size, as recommended in this article for smooth scrolling.
    • If there isn't a ListView with endless scrolling in the problematic view, you can consider enabling native scrolling in it by setting data-use-native-scrolling="true"You can learn more about the difference between emulated and native scrolling here.

    Also, on iOS, a possible reason for such behavior is the WebView overscrolling. To disable it:
    1. Right-click your project name and select Edit Configuration -> iOS Config.
    2. Locate this line:
    <preference name="DisallowOverscroll" value="false" />
    3. Change the preference value to true to disallow the webview overscroll.
    4. Save and re-build your project.
