Hey guys,
So I'm pretty new to Framer, but I'm working on some prototypes. When I view them through my browser the interactions and animations work great. However, when I view them on my iphone5 it's very slow and glitchy.

Any tips?

Post it to codepen and give us a link :)

Well heres one of the examples that I started to learn from, even it doesn't really work on the phone. For example, it takes about 20 seconds to load and sometimes some scrolling sections don't work.

I have had this same experience! Beautiful in the desktop browser, slow on the phone.

Hmm. This example doesn't have the right tap handlers, so it's lagging.

When you use the click event is lags on mobile, you should use touchend

Henry: loading speed isn't related to framer. Maybe your server has limited bandwidth?

Henry Freel

sweet, I'll give it a shot. thanks!

Also check out fastclick.js mentioned elsewhere here. It makes click fast on touch.

I should probably add this to the docs huh?

Only thing you need to make taps fast on mobile is the use of touchstart or touchend. If you use "click" there is like a 500ms click delay that is associated with the event. You don't need to use some third party framework to fix it.

Thanks for the help, this is fun. Still having some pretty slow loading times on the images, but tried on a different server and it was worse so it might be mine. But also noticing that a scrollable section works on web but not on mobile.

Scroll views on mobile don't emit the scroll even (for perf reasons). Could that be what you are seeing?
