MacBook Pro 2016 with 2TB SSD and 16GB RAM (2.9GHz Intel Core i7). This is basically the top-of-line MBP.
Approximate load times of “Workout Dashboard”
- WKO4 takes ~3.5 sec
- WKO5 takes ~4.5 sec
Every single panel shows “Working on it…” and in particular, “Power TiZ” is really slow. And Power TiZ is 0.5+ seconds slower to load in WKO5 (versus WKO4).
- open web browser, go to TP (I’m using free to feed WKO4), click a workout, then click analyze and it loads in under 1 second
- rarely use Golden Cheetah, but launched it just now and switching between workouts the charts load almost instantly
So I’m not hallucinating, charts take 1+ seconds to load and then Power TiZ sits there for another 3+ seconds before it loads. And it loads faster on WKO4, so that makes WKO5 feel slower. Plus in both trials (July launch, and right now), I can consistently and repeatedly crash WKO5. Where do I sign up for the beta testers group? Can I get a discount? My fault for buying WKO4 earlier this year, because my software marketing ‘spidey sense’ knew WKO5 was coming soon.
Like I said a little annoying compared to other apps on this same computer - earlier comment I was mainly thinking of complex PowerPoint or Word docs but did a little investigation to backup my earlier statement.
