Sorry about that.
Looking at the bug, it seems to me that we have gotten to the bottom of
it. Some iOS devices are scrolling fine while others are slower. The
difference seems to be that high dpi disables optimizations and this
causes the slowness on iOS. The same optimizations are disabled on the
desktop, but the desktop is much faster and people don't notice. There
was some discussion about performance in the simulator, but we should
ignore that. Performance on the device is what matters.
iOS and Android are not currently supported platforms for JavaFX. We are
looking towards the community to step up and submit patches to take
these ports forward. Johan Vos and others are helping with Android.
Are you interested in working on iOS? If so, please build on the
patches in https://javafx-jira.kenai.com/browse/RT-31453 and take the
The first step would be to prove that we can be fast (which I think we
can if we run with the optimizations) then understand how to turn the
optimizations back on.
