@cesisco - you're right, it seems slow here as well on iPad 2 and 3 when running from the home screen. That's odd and I can't really say why that is... Space Blaster touch edition seems to work OK from the home screen, and can still reach 60 FPS, although it does seem a little slower overall especially when lots of enemies are on screen. I think it must be a problem with iOS.

@cesisco @Ahsley : Safari can benefit from the Nitro JIT for Javascript, but not the UIWebView, nor webapps saved on home screen, even if they are "loaded back" with Safari.

@Pode - I've read iOS 5 introduced Nitro for home screen web apps. So it ought to be fast still. Home screen web apps don't use UIWebView, it's more like a real version of Safari.

I don't know how much people use "add to home screen" feature, but if someone play this particular game i posted in that mode, they will think the game is crap, for sure.

Thanks, but without the capx I can't poke at it to try to find what the problem is. Can you pm it to me?

I tried my sprite test on the home screen and got the same performance.Arima2012-10-18 00:50:43

Hmm - interesting, it actually does happen with a game I'm making but not much with the sprite test. Definitely seems to be a JavaScript execution speed problem of some sort rather than rendering.Arima2012-10-18 01:16:19
