Re: Speed fix for Treo 700p

I'm also experiencing a big slowdown ever since moving to a Treo 700p. I did upgrade to
4.3.14 but it didn't help. I don't link my ShadowPlan data to any other apps on my
handheld, so it's not an issue with inter-app linking. Things that are slow include a wide
range of functions:
- opening the app is noticably slower than it was and slower than other apps
- tapping the up/down arrow icons to move list items lags *painfully*
- double tapping a list item doesn't always work to open the item. I takes a few times
while watching the visual feedback to get the double tap to work
- scrolling with the five way control is slow, especially after clicking it four or five times in
- pressing the Treo menu button takes a second before the menus are raised. If I press
Menu-S to sort the list, it often starts creating a new item from the "s" keystroke, then the
menu bar appears over top of it.
The last one is interesting and makes me think the problem is at a low level.
Jeff: Congrats on the addition!
