I use an iPad (Air or “2018”-version) for controling Roon to 95% of my usage. (I dont like computers that much…)
One seriously annoying behaviour is when you select Discover from the menu. Firstly there’s quite a delay with the animated Roon icon on the black screen. After 2 sec(?) the images and suggestions appear. Problem is, you see the top suggestions for, say 0.5-1sec and then they disappear and get replaced by something else?
Total time for displaying Discover page in my scenarios, around 5sec… Way too slow, and the replaced suggestions are seriously annoying!
My Core is either a NUC6i5 ROCK (250Gb NVme PciE, 8Gb DDR4) with a locally attached external USB drive of 4Tb or running the QNAP native package on a QNAP TS-470Pro with 16Gb ram and an i5 3470T CPU (Roon DB on 120Gb SSD, source files on the three 6TB WD Red drives)
There isn’t a major difference in behaviour between the iPad 9.7" 2018 or the old Air… The latter may be a sec slower or so.
But generally i feel that the iPad controller app is sluggish when compared to Lightning DS or BluOS app with similar libraries…
(Library is about 120K songs in Roon and LightningDS, maybe 80K songs in BluOS)
Can something be done to make Roon Controller app more agile and responsive on iOS?
