One of our users reported that when he upgraded to 10.1, our game stopped working. We found that there were breaking changes introduced in 10.1 that caused the webview to not load. We put in work around that involved setting webview height manually. That allowed the game to play but we found that the game performance was significantly degraded on 10.1.
We verified that the performance degradation was not caused by setting height manually by making the fix and running it on 10.1 and 10.0.9 simulators. The performance different was very apparent. Here are two videos of the simulator performance difference between 10.1 and 10.0.9. Keep in mind the 10.1 simulator runs about 3-4x faster, so it's much worse than the video shows.
This last video shows how it runs on a 10.1 device. When this device was running 10.0.9 it was as smooth as the 10.0.9 simulator in prev videos.

Hopefully someone takes a look at this soon. 10.1 rollout is coming... Could be really bad for anyone with webworks or webview apps. All of them would at least see extreme slow down.

Hmm that doesn't seem to be related, but that sucks.
I wish there were some BB developer support people who could help on this forum. I filed a bug a long time ago and no results so far.
It would be nice to at least know what changed so maybe we can work around it.
