Removing flickering seen in cordova applications

Posted on: January 12, 2015

More insights on my ventures in to app development using Drupalgap. I had received a lot of complaints from users that there is considerable flickering in the mobile app that I had built. The flickering wasn’t very much visible in Kit Kat devices but as I went down API levels it was very much visible. The solve was a two part problem:

1) Drupalgap uses the ‘Fade’ transition to move from one page to another. By changing the transition from fade to ‘Slide’ the transitions became much smoother than it was earlier. Sample code on how to change the transition can be seen here.

2) ICS and lower versions of Android seem to have the flickering issue even after the transitions change was implemented. That got fixed when I disabled hardware acceleration. To disable it just goto the AndroidManifest.xml and change the values of hardwareAcceleration to false.

This did the trick. Hope this helps!

Cheers!! 🙂
