OpenWrt Android app painfully slow to load

On my Google Pixel 3a the OpenWrt android app is very slow to load. What's with that?

I didn't know openwrt has an app.

Here is what I have:

And here is the ugly loading screen:

I could make myself breakfast by the time it finishes loading.

I also didn't know that there is an official Android app.

Not much point asking here, ask the dev what's going on

I really don't see the point of having a app when a browser works just fine

If you look closely, you will recognize that the OP is talking about the OpenWrt forum on his Android phone, not OpenWRTManager.

Regarding "app": Seems everything that is running in a browser is called an "app" today. I noticed this in our canteen, where you can look up todays menu with your mobile phone. You get an URL to access the menu, nothing else, nothing to install, and they call it "app".

@Lynx When I access the OpenWrt forum via an Andoid phone + Chrome, I do not experience any lag or long loading time.

Removed from Google store now?

So is this a rogue app I've been using the last year or more?

There is a android app for OpenWrt, but it's not official. It is just made by some one that is a fan of OpenWrt and wanted to make a android app.

Yeah but this is a special OpenWrt forum viewing app not that OpenWRTManager app. It seems to have been removed from the Google app store since I installed it on my Pixel 3a.

Could this possibly be a discourse thingy?

Perhaps then I do not need to contact Fox Mulder and alert to a security threat?

Here is what I have in Firefox on Android:

Just install Firefox and be done with it :wink:
