No difference between paid and free plan in my experience, at least for now.
Another tip would be to open them during early morning when everyone else are not using internet, like 4am or 5am, after that you can put the computer to sleep and later continue the work at appropriate time.
I am guessing there is a very quick timeout from the cloud server that people with high speed internet and nearby to the cloud server did not experience this, so we must find the nearest vpn at less congestion time to avoid this timeout.
Okay, will try your suggestion to open the editor again early in the morning. I have tried all VPN locations available but that didn’t help. So I decided to submit a ticket and will update this thread once I find a solution
Through trial and error a few things worked for me:
Use a browser that doesn’t time out eg. Firefox
Use Wire Ethernet connection for the initial Load up of the App. Use VPN if this doesn’t resolve, try a few different
if you have a lot of Images (make sure format so they are tiny), that are uploaded into the editor, or you’re loading Lottie Files, GIFS, Images URLS these will all make the app slower to load. Obviously the more screens etc the more difficult to load.
Sometimes it doesn’t matter how long you wait it won’t load, so there must be a timeout Adalo serverside also - so if it doesn’t load within a minute or two it likely won’t load. Refresh.
I’ve found that the yellow line can disappear if you pan in and out across most of the screens to load components and text etc (could be completely irrelevant but seems to work for me).
The only thing from the above I can say for sure that works, is super fast internet, VPN and a browser that doesn’t time out.
I agree with @iAppsNi if we’re building large apps we need fast internet to load the app in the editor
After I contacted Adalo support I told them to delete some of my app’s screens and they suggested sending me the clones of 2 apps with deleted and non-deleted screens. This helped me proceed with work in the editor.
As @k86305 said, for those who are experiencing a similar issue, once you are able to load the app again NEVER close the browser window.
