5 Ways to Make Your Glide Apps Fly Like a Jet! ✈️


Improving the speed of your Glide apps is crucial, especially as they grow and handle larger datasets. Here are five effective tips for boosting the performance of your Glide apps:

1. Minimize the Use of Queries:

Avoid using Queries as much as possible and opt for Relations instead. Queries require more processing time and can slow down the app, while Relations can provide the same result more efficiently.

2. Separate Apps for Different User Types:

Creating separate apps for each user type allows you to use Row Owners, which reduces the amount of data loaded onto the user’s device, enhancing the loading speed of pages and components.

3. Compress Images Before Uploading:

Large images can significantly slow down the app’s loading time. Use image compression tools before uploading to ensure faster page loads for image-heavy content.

4. Use Glide Tables:

Prefer Glide Tables over external data sources like Google Sheets or Airtable. Glide Tables load faster and reduce the user’s waiting time.

5. Remove Irrelevant Components and Pages:

Removing components and pages that are not relevant to each user allows for a smoother and faster user experience. Fewer data and components loaded onto the device result in better speed and performance.

These principles, among others, can significantly enhance the user experience of your Glide apps, ensuring fast and efficient performance.
