Tip #2: Boosting Cordova’s jQuery Mobile Apps Performance

One of the common issues when you use jQuery Mobile with Apache Cordova in many of the platforms especially in the old versions Android platform is that you feel that the transitions between the app pages are slow.

The solution for this problem is to disable jQuery mobile transition effects as follows when the jQuery mobile is loaded as follows.

    $.mobile.defaultPageTransition   = 'none';
    $.mobile.defaultDialogTransition = 'none';

Disabling transition effects will dramatically boost your Cordova’s jQuery mobile app’s transition performance.

Do not believe people who say jQuery Mobile is slow with Apache Cordova.
