I'm using the Stack Exchange app v1. 0.95 1 on a Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge running Android v8.0.0.
I'm aware that development on the app is frozen. The interface is cleaner and (usually) faster for me to work with than the mobile website.
Over this past week, I've been experiencing problems of severe delays/freezes when trying to load posts and post my own comments/answers. Especially on Stack Overflow, where I spend most of my time (but I use the app to access several other SE sites, too).
Sometimes loading/posting takes several seconds (5-10), but it does eventually succeed.
Sometimes loading/posting freezes, but I can press the Back or App Switcher button on the device to kind of "wake up" the app without actually switching away from it.
Sometimes the app just freezes completely and I have to swipe it away and restart it.
But these are temporary solutions. The problem always comes back after a few minutes, or reading/posting a few times.
This is a recently new problem. It wasn't happening before.
Anyone else noticing this lately?
