Verrrrry Slowwwww

This version running that I downloaded after installing Lollipop is very slow. It can take two or three minutes in the morning while a message at the bottom reads “synching unread stories.”

app version: 4.0.1
android version: 5.0
device: asus Nexus 7 (flo)
memory: normal

Same here. The 4.x version is much much much slower than the pre-Lollipop version was on my Nexus 5.

I’m experiencing very slow performance on two devices, a 2013 Nexus 7 and a Samsung Galaxy S5. Both devices are running Android 4.4.4 KitKat and Newsblur 4.0.1. Activities that used to be instantaneous, particularly retrieving feed lists and retrieving story text, now take several seconds to perform at times. On the Nexus 7 Newsblur is so slow as to be all but unusable. Changing the offline settings doesn’t seem to make much difference.

We’ll get this fixed next week after Thanksgiving. The app is much faster on my 2013 N7 running 4.4. But we’ll figure out what’s going on.
