I was never happy with the smoothness of image scrolling in Jaipho. But the current engine was usable enough, so I was holding the issue to be solved in some better times.
After iPhone 4 was released, I was surprised with bad performance on it too. iOS 4.2 update made things even worse. Image scrolling on iPhone 4 is worse than on any other iPhone!
Recently I started to work on Jaipho 1.0 which should be out in September or October, and the smooth scrolling was one of the first issues to start with.
On http://jaiphodemo.info/demos/ipad-test-01/ you can find the first test version. If it is accessed by iPad it will be optimized for it. All other devices will be served with iPhone optimized version.
This iPad version is mainly made by following the guide published on Porting Jaipho to iPad article.
In this article, we will step by step integrate Jaipho, Pipho and iUI. Purpose of this article is to see how to use Jaipho/Pipho in multi galleries environment, and how to implement a different designs.
The whole source which cames out as result of this steps is attached to post.
Live demo can be found at http://www.jaiphodemo.info/pipho-iui/.
Summarized, we will create iUI based page which will contain list of all our galleries (index.php), and we will change Jaipho based page to fit the iUI digg sample design (gallery.php).
