Latency issues on my android phone


With Language Forge I’ve always had some latency issues on my Android phone. Currently it usually takes about 15-20 seconds to bring up a word entry, and about 30 seconds to go back to the word list. It’s possible it might just be my old phone although it’s likely to have a higher performance than my friends in the village. I’m using Google Chrome version 57 on Android 4.4.4 on a Nexus 5. Our test dictionary has about 1800 words. I’d be interested to know what kind of performance we should expect on Android.


Hi Tim,

Thanks for writing. We don’t have much experience or reports from people using it in the field, so I’m very interested in hearing from you on the performance issue. Perhaps you can help us iron out some of the performance issues, because what you have described sounds unacceptably long, even for older phones.

Let’s discuss more of your particular situation via email.
