Steps to reproduce
This seems to have started after updating to the latest version of the Android app a couple of days ago.
On the native Android app:
- Type a character in an item.
- Wait for syncing to complete.
The sync completes soon after editing stops.
It takes ~15s to sync.

Some questions you might have:
Why does it matter that it takes 15s to sync?
The native Android app does not sync when backgrounded, so you must leave the app open until syncing completes (this is the reason I added custom CSS to display the sync status on the main screen). This means you now have to wait 15s before you can close/switch apps after making changes in Dynalist, which is a major pain. If you background the app (e.g. switch apps), it will only sync after you reopen the app. If you use Dynalist in Android Chrome it will sync in the background, oddly enough. See this screen capture for a demonstration of this: https://streamable.com/2uwwzn
Why don’t you use Dynalist in Android Chrome rather than the native app, since that syncs in background?
- I would prefer to use a dedicated native app
- The native app seems to scroll smoother on large documents.
There’s currently a major bug when using Dynalist in Android Chrome, where adding a new item causes Chrome to crash, making it completely unusable right now: Creating new item on Android Chrome crashes Chromethis has been resolved!
