I hope someone can shed some light on the following:
we have been using coda for a while now, on computers, tablets and various phones. We were most happy with the performance on computers and most phones, the tablets were older ones and a bit slow.
The way the tables show on android (phone and tablet) worked best for our application when we are ‘out in the open’, the table rows show initially as blocks and you can swipe them sideways to show row buttons.
Because our tablets are a bit older, they are also a bit slow. Therefore I just bought some newer tablets, octocore with high res displays and android 9.x, but a couple of things really surprise me:
- it is still a bit slow to respond to pushing the buttons, screen refresh is a bit slow too.
- the application now looks the same as when it is run on chrome on my computer: the interface with the blocks is gone and I can only look at the table as a real table.
Now these are modern, but inexpensive tablets. Is it the tablet? Will I get better performance when I buy the newest Samsung tablet?
And, what about the way the tables show up: can I somehow get it to display the same as on my phone? I think I asked this before, but is there (going to be) an option where we can switch (on any device) to displaying tables the we like best for different uses/different tables? (for the record: on the older tablets (including with Android 7) the tablets show the tables in the block-type view (with the option icon to go to table view).
