According to the performance tips from Microsoft: "Don’t add more than 500 controls to the same app". While this seems reasonable, if you use the wizard to create an app you get three screens: edit, display, and gallery. Both the edit and display screens use forms, which have cards, which in turn have multiple controls. Simple math shows that the soft limit of 500 controls will be exceeded with only 60 fields.
Am I missing something about these recommendations or about what constitutes a control? This seems extremely limiting, and clients with InfoPath forms with 100 fields won't appreciate hearing this guidance. Any thoughts or suggestions?
I believe ManCat is already answering your topic in the original thread https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/Building-Power-Apps-Formerly/1-PowerApp-with-60-to-70-screen-Vs-...

I posted separately, as officially I was being off-topic there. This is an important issue for the folks who need to migrate off of InfoPath, as apparently there are quite a few InfoPath forms out there that will violate the Microsoft stated best practices if they are re-built in Power Apps. If I'm wrong about this, I'd love to hear what I got wrong.
Before I leave the thread just wanted to share a link to a talk that was at MS Ignite this year in case you find it helpful. I didn't get to attend this talk due to scheduling conflicts but I had it on my list to see.

I saw that one already. Unfortunately, the session did not cover realistic forms or scenarios. The demo forms only had 4 or 5 fields, like the majority of the examples in the documentation.
Fair enough. Only so much that can be accomplished in a 45 session to a general audience I suppose. Overall though I gotta say the MS Ignite was a pretty excellent experience.
