    Does anybody else hate the Android-like screen scrolling in iOS 4?

    If you flick at a slow speed between home screens, it no longer continues the scroll at that speed, but rather scrolls fast instead. Also deteriorates the experience in the weather app, for example.

    I can't understand why they would do this. You always had the ability to scroll fast if you wanted to. Now it doesn't correspond to your finger movement anymore and it feels like it lost that connection between person & machine, the type of attention to detail that Apple is known for :(

    The scrolling has not changed for me.

    Maybe you have some crud on your screen that is interfering with your scrolling?

    It changed for me too and my phone is clean. Doesn't bother me though, it actually made it seem like my phone was running faster. I was never really the slow-scrolling type anyway...

    Yeah, it changes for everybody, that second poster probably didn't pay close attention to the way it used to work. I've been demonstrating it to people at work against their un-upgraded iPhones.

    Actually, I like it. I find it reduces the number of flicks required to navigate a large page from about a hundred to about ten.

    That's not what we're talking about at all. Scroll through different cities on the Weather app on iOS 3 vs. iOS 4.

    I don't see any difference at all. Been trying to duplicate this.

    No they don't, unless me and everyone else in my office's iOS 4 is different from yours, across all versions of iPhones that support it. You're NOT talking about in the web browser, right? You're talking about left/right home screen, weather app, app store screen shots, etc scrolling, right?

    Just compared to my 3G running 3.0, they are the same?

    Yeah, you're holding for too long. You should be able to let go at a slow rate, after just touching half the screen or so and it should take a full one second after you let go for the screen to finish the scroll. It's really quite a beautiful effect/attention to detail they had. I'll try and post a basic video tonight, and then I'll make a more comprehensive comparison video sometime this week or next week.

    From what I've experienced on android, the scrolling on iOS is nothing laggy like that on android.

    You need the fast scrolling in the Android Marketplace, otherwise you'd never get through all of the SEXY HOT ASIAN apps.

    No, it's not. This is not about lag, this is about programming to lock you into going fast, for no good reason.

    Eh? Isn't that a bit like calling OS X slow? (As in, you're disregarding the hardware).

    FWIU, 3g users have experienced laggy iOS4 experiences.

    Video of iOS 3 Scrolling

    I didn't get a chance last night to make my video showing the iOS 3 ability to shift screens at whatever pace you desire, but I made it tonight.

    No difference scrolling between home screens here. Tracks finger at the speed it moves, just as before.

    Apple changed the animation rate and curve/acceleration of the UIScrollView class that is used wherever scrolling/pinching happens. I guess so it seems snappier.
