Our app uses WebView to render the visuals, and one of the rules related to memory management is that the rendering process is not allowed to use more than 25% of RAM memory of the device. After this mark the app gets limited and it stops loading properly without giving any error messages or crashes. This is why the toolbars can disappear and re-appear occasionally, and the performance may slow down substantially.
As a workaround we can suggest trying the following:
- to close all unnecessary background applications before using Miro - this should better the performance;
- to work on boards that are smaller in size - this should lighten the load of the app on the system;
- finally, to switch to another device (laptop or computer) with better RAM and use the browser version of Miro, preferably on Chrome browser.
