Typing username/password slow on WP7

Sep 24, 2012 at 4:56 PM


I am using in-app browser control and when user does the login, the typing is very slow in windows phone, I have tried this in two different devices and emulator as well.

Any reason for this?

Do you mean when you're typing in the PIN number or when authenticating in the browser control?

It happens when authenticating, when entering the username and password, the typing is way too slow. Looks as if there is a lag of 2-3 seconds when u type and when the words appear on the textboxes.

Though I've also noticed that typing into the in-app browser feels slow, 2-3 seconds sounds like a very long time.  The in-app browser is a .NET component and I'm not sure if there's anything I can do about it.  You you observe the same behavior if you use the in-app browser in another application, without LINQ to Twitter?

I have tried to open the below link in the in-app browser by making a small demo app with just a browser control and also in normal wp7 browser, the typing on both of them is fine.

Its just the linqtotwitter in app is slow



Any workaround for this?

Thanks for taking a closer look at this.  This is a strange issue, but I've copied it to a work order just in case.
