PowerApps is using soo much memory, that is extremely hard to use

While working on a PowerApp, my IE and/or Chrome will begin to lag and bog down my computer. We have just enabled PowerApps for the rest of the company, and we want to make sure they do not begin seeing the same issues as they begin building the apps in Office 365. This will discourage users from using an application that could streamline their business processes.

I had 4 tabs open with PowerApps and SharePoint which completely bogged down my computer. The screenshot below is just one example. I have so many exaples of it continuing to happen.

 

It takes several seconds to click items, i can't scroll and it it does, it will take 10 seconds before it decides to jump doen on the screen and then will lock up my browser. it's working like its 1999!

Re: PowerApps is using soo much memory, that is extremely hard to use

Hi @FishinKmac,

 

I have made a test on my side, and don't have the issue that you mentioned.

 

I think this issue is related to your computer status rather than PowerApps itself. There are some requirements for running a canvas app, please check the following article for more details:

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powerapps/maker/canvas-apps/limits-and-config

 

Please check if your computer OS and browser meet the requirements for running a canvas app.

 

In addition, please also take a try to re-start your computer, and then clear cache of your browser, check if the issue still exists.

 

Please also make sure that your Network is in good condition, and there is no other process which consume too much memory excuted behind.

 

 Best regards,

Kris
