FMGo dramatically slows down

FMGo15, current version

iPad Pro 9.7"

iOS 9.3

This machine is a 'workhorse'. Since we got problems with a few iOS/FMGo users after updating to iOS10, I have to wait...


- I added a slide element with 4 slides to an existing FMGo solution, basically to add a to-do list

- afterwards, showing custom dialogues took 3-5 seconds, before not remarable

- the custom dialogues are not new, the just show a list of a few elements, doesn't matter what they do. It slows down dramatically


I was afraid that the solution might have any damages, but I never was able to reproduce on OSX


In memory of the problems with early V14, I tried all the scripts/tricks we did at that time - and one of the 'patch scripts' as effective!


-> It does nothing but a layout change to another TO and back to the original TO

-> after this script was running, the solution was very crispy, even better than before adding the slide element


I added that layout-change to the first (main..) slide element (going from slide to slide is scripted) and the problem was gone


I realized then, that the Go solution became slower after some actions, might be longer work in this solution or after a while of sleeping (iOS device..). After running that 'layout-change' script, it will be crispy again


So: Is FMGo eating memory up? Does that layout-change kind of a garbage collection?


I' treating this behavior as a bug - but I don't know if it's Apple or FM dependent...
