Is there a way to keep Obsidian open when you are working on another app. Switching back and forth usually finds Obsidian closed and I have to start it again. This rarely happens on iPhone. Not using desktop.
I’d like Obsidian on ipadOS to stay active longer too.
Pretty sure this is because of the ipad’s RAM management, though possibly something different with ipadOS. I swear that selecting a piece of text before swiping out of Obsidian can keep it active a little longer. Maybe placebo though. Would really love to see this improved somehow.
How large is your vault? I had the impresssion that with my 4000 notes that I had imported from Bear, Obs on iOS was slower and got closed by iOS more often. Since I excluded the Bear import vault on iOS, everything feels more snappy and Obs is less often terminated.
But all that could just as well be wishful thinking and delusion
+1. This is my biggest peeve with Obsidian on iOS. iPhone 11 Pro (so I should have 4gb ram, but I don’t really think that’s the cause). Only use a single vault of ~1gb/5k notes, but that still can take 10 seconds or so to load.
I’m in and out of Obsidian 10-15 times a day, but often I’ll go an hour or two without using it (always resulting in a reload). I don’t even use many other apps in the meantime, maybe 5 at most.
It also affects URI shortcuts, if Obsidian isn’t open (as iOS sees it), it will ignore the shortcut and you have to run it again (and re-input data).
I did that too, but it slows down the opening of the link, even if Obsidian is already running.
I was wondering if there’s a command in shortcuts that only executes open Obsidian if Obsidian is not running in background yet, but I don’t think that’s possible.
