My own mobiles apps haven't yet displayed text longer than a few dozen
pages, but I was impressed with the smoothness.
I'd always taken LC's field excellent field buffering for granted, given
that their text engine is internal and used on all platforms.
I've had such good luck so far with using scrollers directly on fields
that it never occurred to me that accelerated rendering would be useful
for field objects.
Maybe Mark Waddingham could explain the relationship between LC's field
buffering and the non-text buffering the engine does with groups?
