Why is SoloLearn App so slow (iPhone user!)

Didn't matter what I want to do or where I click, I always must wait much time for loading. I have a good internet connection and a relative fast phone (iPhone 7). I do not want to portray this app by any means bad, I just want to know how why.

it most likely is your WiFi internet connection. if you using cellular data you will be limited to about 56Kbs. Wifi should get you 10Mbs. Also your Iphone is just the IO device the processing is done on the SoloLearn servers. and if there is a lot of user you preformance will drop. By the way don't do what happened to me last Sunday. While on my boat my iPhone fell overboard and is at the bottom of the ocean.

you should remember that phones are designed as low power devices. the faster a CMOS circuit runs the more power it uses. I beleve the power gose up as the square of the clock rate

Roneel yes your right. Sindile Ionuţ Cristian I have fast internet, fast enough to watch YouTube Videos in Full HD which needed many bytes, SoloLearn is an App and many Assets are saved on the phone, it loads only some little pictures and text, which are less bytes. A Video needs maybe 90% more bytes to load as SoloLearn needs.

It's like trying to run Minecraft, with all sorts of mods, on a TracFone. Sololearn has ALOT of assets and imports that will take time to load, especially on a phone. The sheer amount of code it took to write the Code Playground is immaculate. It is better on a computer.

I havent from had problems with my iPhone and SoloLearn. Do you have a good Wi-Fi connection? I found running a Python locally on the iPhone it's incredibly fast. I have a Pythonista, a standalone python IDE for the iPhone. A Bluetooth keyboard helps a lot for input.

Well, I haven't tried it with the iPhone and with that I don't think I have the exact explanation to my reasons but may be it's because of the app where by it needs improvement in for that type of OS or it's about your very phone being loaded up with a lot of things and for that I would advice that you free up some space. Otherwise for the Android the app work better.
