Hi, I have a sqlite database similar to the Apple contacts app. I do all the tricks I know to get a smoth operation, but I have a problem. I load the data in 50 recods blocks. Then, when the user scroll, request next 50 until finish the list. However, load that 50 records cause a notable "pause" in loading & scrolling. Everything else work fine. I cache the data, have opaque cells, draw it by code, etc... This is the code: I wonder what to do. Maybe using a async loading? or threads? No using objects and put the data in a array?
