Delay during transition on Chrome browser on iOS

This comment was split from the discussion: Bug report

On the iOS system browser everything is working perfectly. I only
encounter problems in the Google Chrome App for iOS (latest version of
Chrome installed on iPad iOS6 and iPhone iOS5), and the same thing
seemed to happen when I tested my site in the Samsung Galaxy Phone
system browser (I can't re-test it today).

The problem is with deeplinking enabled, when I do a slide gesture or
a tap on the image before the hash is changed in the address bar (even
if the animation is finished) :
- either nothing happens, as if I never did the slide gesture or tap - or the slide freezes for about 1 second in the middle of the animation It happens randomly, about every 4-8 slides.

RoyalSlider v9.2.6.1 doesn't seem to fix this.

    In case it involves for you to modify the deeplinking module, would it be possible to make it more reactive ? I mean to make the hashchange (in the browser addressbar) happen at animation start.

    I can't do this, as such behaviour will cause lag at start of transition and will cause pooling of browser history with unneeded URL's.

    I still can't repeat your "delay" during transition issue, so unless someone else confirms me it - I can't help you much.

    Weird you can't repeat it. I also encounter it in your gallery template when i put it in fullscreen on ipad3 ios6 and iphone4s ios5 :

    I get this too. On iphone ios6, a slight slide freeze in the middle of the transition. It does not happen on my ipod ios5 - works fine on ipad ios5 too.

    I am not using deep linking. I have the Wordpress version and standard HTML version and its only happening with the Wordpress version.

    Hi Gad,
    Do you also get slide gestures randomly ignored ?

    In my case, I noticed that the freezing happens when the hash is updated in the chrome ios address bar while I am making a slide gesture.

    Sorry for late reply. It's OK in the page or post, just 'jerky' when placed in header.php even though settings all correct.
