App works on emulator but not on Playbook

Got my (beautiful!) Playbook in the mail and was super bummed to find out that my app doesn't work.  It does work in the emulator (but scrolls very very slowly) and when opened in Chrome here on my machine, but breaks when opened either in the browser on the playbook or the actual downloaded app from the app store.


I haven't had a solid hour to devote to debugging it yet, but I just wanted to voice frustration about it!  Lol.  I suspect it has something to do with the long long long list I'm loading into a web database.  Just not sure yet.


Anyone else have false positives from the emulator?

Re: App works on emulator but not on Playbook

Hey, sorry to hear your app doesn't work!


Your best bet would be to deploy the app to your PlayBook with FireBug in it. It helps a lot figuring out what the problem is.
