Scrolling in Mango is much better than NoDo

Developer Rene Schulte, who makes the popular Pictures Lab app, has gone ahead and posted a video of the difference in scrolling behavior between NoDo and Mango.

In Mango, one of the new improvements is faster scrolling due to better on-device caching of images and information--basically the device stores that info instead of re-downloading it. What that means in reality is that when you zip through a list of items, you won't get that pause or stickiness wthat we get now.

But how to quantify it? Why, watch two devices at the same time of course. To be honest, though we love all the new features of Mango, this improvement will really make a difference in everyday life.

  • Mango looks much slower in launching and running the Twitter app.
  • Honestly, I think that's just a difference in tap speed.
  • Actually, the Mango one is launched first quite clearly and still gets beat by the non-Mango phone. However, these two phones are on different hardware it appears.
  • Wow, and here I thought WP7 couldn't much smoother when it came to scrolling.
  • This is one of those minor improvements that to me is rather major. Nothing kills the UX for me more than apps that have erratic scrolling, especially if you've come from one of the hubs. It's really bad in an app like Rowi (which is otherwise excellent) where you have to scroll quite a bit.
