App Launch VERY SLOW

I've noticed about 2 400% slowdown when building on 6.7 vs 6.6.4.

A launcher app (very slim) which used to launch in under a second now takes over 4 seconds. A larger app which should launch in under 2 seconds is now taking almost 10 seconds to launch! Unfortunately, I can't build anymore in 6.6.4 as Yosemite and/or XCode keeps me from doing this.

Any idea what is causing the slowdown and any way to improve launch performance?

Hi Chipp,

We haven't noticed any slowdowns through internal testing so it would be great if you could file a report with our Quality Control team as they will be able to investigate this further-

We have also released LiveCode 6.6.5 which is simply a point release to bring support for Xcode 6.1 so I would recommend trying this with Yosemite to see if the slowdown is still present.


Kind Regards,

Thanks Neil,

Unfortunately, I don't see any 6.5.5 release. Can you share where it can be found?

I have the same problem. The build from 6.7 takes 9 seconds to launch on an IOS 8.1.1 iphone vs 2 seconds from 6.6.5 on the same phone. The launch is short for both builds on IOS 6.1 device, however.

We have the same problem + the app responds very slow (Simulator 8.0 + LC6.7). Is there any fix? The app is almost unusable right now.

! am experiencing the same thing. 12 seconds to launch an app that used to take 2 or 3 seconds. This needs some attention.

I’ve experienced the same issue using LC 6.7.2 compared to 6.6.5 with iOS iPhone simulators 7.1 and 8.1. I’ve also seen the delay on real devices.

I’m using Yosemite 10.2 and Xcode 6.1.1.

The delay seems to be related to the amount information I have in text fields… the amount of text affects 7.1 and 8.1. I have fields with 49,000 lines, two with 12,000 lines each, and 8,000 lines. Each line is a 3 to 5 digit number.

With LC 6.7.2 when I empty those fields the app launches right away in the 7.1 simulator and has about a 5 sec delay in 8.1.

With those fields full, the detay in 7.1 is about 5 seconds and the delay in 8.1 is about 10 seconds.

In LC 6.6.5 there is about a 4 second delay in both the 7.1 and 8.1 simulators with I keep the text in the fields. When I empty the fields the delay doesn’t appear in either simulator.
