Swipe performance in Android WebView

Post by arb » Thu Apr 21, 2016 10:43 am


I am trying to automate an a hybrid android application, where the whole UI is within a WebView and is HTML based.
The Navigation within the app is based on swipe gestures.
As soon as the app is instrumented, the swipe performance is really sluggish an a lot of gestures get lost.
Therefore i am basically unable to automate the app properly.
Even when i swipe by hand the issue exists. The non instrumented app runs just fine.
Any ideas ?

Kind Regards,

EDIT: Using latest Ranorex 5.4.6

Hi Arne,

In order to analyze this problem in more detail, I’d need a non-instrumented copy of your application. May I ask you if you could send that copy to [email protected]? This allows us to reproduce the problem on our environment.

Thank you in advance.
