Search is so SLOWWWWWW

Post by jimbeam23c »

I remember a time ages back when I used to search for stuff in EssentialPIM for Android and I used to get results in seconds.

Now, it takes even longer to try and type out a search entry, because as soon as you click on search and start typing, you get the first character or two, and then everything just stalls, and you have to basically wait until the app catches up, and then you type another character and wait again....rinse and repeat.

When you can finally type out the search terms, results are still found, but this situation almost makes the search unusable.

Please mention your device make and model. Also, which module you're searching in and how many items are in it. Thanks!

Oops, sorry about that.

I've updated my signature to include that information.

I'm searching in Calendar, Contacts and Notes....

Calendar: 3420
Contacts: 90
Notes: 30

Slow in all modules...

Those just happen to be the ones I use.....

I see, thanks. Will add a barely noticeable delay that should happen (when you type in the last character) and only then the live search will start to work. This should allow you enter search terms without delay.

Yes please do that right now....

I'm just worried that if the typist is slow, or thinking of something while typing, they will also still experience this issue.

You could also just add a search button that you can press after you have entered the search term.

It might not be live search, but at least it'll work as advertised ALL of the time.

This Search button might be the best simplest option for the long run.

Perhaps give the user a choice of live search or the old method of searching in the options.

A simple search button isn't as effective as the live search. And this effect isn't really noticeable on devices with mid to high end processors. In any case will adjust the option to make it more responsive.
