    Not exactly sure how to ask this, but frankly, there is a significant delay between when I type and when the letters show up. This doesn't happen on any other forum visit.

    Mines not like that. I'm on a iPhone.

    I'm on Android. Hmmmm

    I see it on my phone as well. Android, Samsung S5, Chrome.

    On my Android, I have a delay. Its because of my virus app

    I find that this creates a substantial delay from my thoughts to it appearing on my phone.

    Is it like this on other forums you visit? It's not for me.

    You’re typing on the Pinside Forum Remake (PFr for short). It’s been updated but there is a random/variable delay that has crept in. It’s just not the same as the original PF.

    I think there was a thread about this already... all the members of the original PF said “I told you so”.

    Breaking news: it was just determined that the original has the same delays... but jgentry is on to something, as most of the original members just didn’t notice the delay... they actually didn’t notice much of anything.

    Maybe you just type slow.

    Wouldn't that be the opposite of what is happening...

    I finish typing my sentence and the words are still coming up on the screen, Coleco ADAM style!!!

    Are you with AT+T? If so there's you answer!

    My Motorola Turbo 2 Droid started slowing down to where I can't even type at times (too much lag between touch screen reads and actual letters showing up even though every touch is stored and ultimately produces a character). Pinside is slow but so is my Email app. I try closing everything but it doesn't go away until I reboot my phone. I also have Norton running on it. Using Chrome for internet. Verizon Cellular (not AT&T) but hardly matters what WiFi I am connected to (Home, work, away).

    Make sure all your apps involved (keyboard, browser) are updated. Sounds like an odd problem, but if it's only happening on Pinside, it's probably an issue with compatibility of whatever you're running and the forum itself. It will probably resolve when one, the other, or both get updated.

    Pulling up Firefox and this is a test. Seems to work better. Previously Chrome

    Mine has done it on and off for about a year now. Sometimes it is so slow, I can be a full sentence ahead of what is showing on the screen.
