Performance Issues - Drop Down Control

I have created a custom Power App and there are only 3 controls on the form, and two text boxes holding the longitude and latitude values. Data sources are two connections to SharePoint Lists.


Connection 1 is a configuration list with only 3 items (title column only) that I am using to populate a drop down list since choice lists are read only (for use with the patch() function).

Connection 2 is a brand new list (now empty) with 5 columns and none of the columns are required.


I am patching 4 columns (plus the title field since it seems to need that) to the destination list (connection 2).

It should receive Reason field value, a first name, a last name, and longitude and latitude values, plus the title.

There are no errors or yield sign icons in the app.


On my phone the drop down takes forever (so long that it times out) to load the choices. Is there anyway I can speed it up? I have not had this problem before, and the only new thing is the longitude and latitude values.


Thank you in advance for your help.




Unfortunately there is no workaround right now.

Ok. I'll try changing the image and backing up to see if I can getting something close to that.


Thanks for your help,


Guess what! It works on my iPad, so I'll just convert to a tablet app.
