I'm now testing v1076 and the extended delay on exit is still evident in iOS builds.

The problem is when exiting an app normally (through something that ends up executing the 'end' command). I am experiencing a serious delay. The app display is replaced by a plain black screen and I have to wait way too long for the device's app menu to display. This happens in the iPad/iPhone simulators and on my live iPad and iPod touch devices.

With this very simple app (part of my test set), it took 15 seconds:



With my (nearly) complete game, it takes 30 seconds.

I tested my game both with and without the function that releases all the assets (images, sprites, sounds, etc.) and the results was the same.

After looking at every single app on my iPad and iPod and a bunch on my Hubby's Android, I may have an option that is not expected.

Apparently none of the apps have an exit option!

So, I'll update my game to recognize the device first thing and only have the exit button for Windows and Mac.

I might leave it in for Android, since it does not have any problem exiting cleanly.

Cheers,
