I built an app with PhoneGap for Android and got several issues when testing on my phone (Samsung; Android 5.1.1; WebView 55.0.2883.91):
- The screen is rescaled and the viewport meta tag is ignored. It looks like this
This issue is gone when testing on Xperia Z3 (WebView 58.0.3029.83)
My viewport meta tag looks like this:
<meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0, maximum-scale=1.0, minimum-scale=1.0, user-scalable=no, minimal-ui" />
The screen blinks (flickers) occasionally
Sounds play only after you tap the screen. (I’ve heard that this is normal for iOS, but it’s not for Android)
Ad videos are stuck at the start and keep restarting. While on Xperia Z3 the performance of the video is poor. Although this issue may have nothing to do with PhoneGap, but I thought I should mention it.
Please help! I’m at the final stage of releasing my app, but these frustrating problems are keeping me away from it!
