Subject [jira] [Created] (CB-9732) getPicture using PHOTOLIBRARY Slow As Hell on iPad
Date Thu, 01 Oct 2015 20:01:26 GMT
Alan Neveu created CB-9732:

             Summary: getPicture using PHOTOLIBRARY Slow As Hell on iPad
                 Key: CB-9732
             Project: Apache Cordova
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Plugin Camera
    Affects Versions: 3.5.0
         Environment: iOS 8, iOS 9, iPad
            Reporter: Alan Neveu

When using an iPad on iOS 8.4 or iOS 9, if you make a getPicture call and pass
it takes from 30 seconds to 3 minutes for the "Photos" popover to appear. This only happens
on iPad, not on iPhone.

This blog article talks about the problem and how it affects lots of apps, but it says that
Facebook and Instagram seem to have worked around this problem by only loading the most recent
photos into that photo selector popup, rather than all photos from forever. Here's the link
to that blog article:

Here is another forum in which people are discussing this issue:

Any ideas on how to either fix or work around it? I find it very strange that the problem
only happens on iPad and not iPhone. But it seems that iPad is the only one that does the
popover thing. So it definitely has to do with that, and in fact maybe the problem is just
that the popover itself is taking a long time, I'm not sure.
