Do any other mobile/ios users struggle to navigate the slideshows on vital? Eg. Pitbits.
The swipe to next slide is hesitant to workkkkk and the next/previous buttons are temperamental at best

YES! Not only on iOS, but on my desktop as well. Getting through PitBits #3 was incredibly tedious this morning. I had to reload each page, and kept getting the "This webpage was reloaded because it was using significant memory" message. The arrow buttons rarely worked.

My hardware info:

2019 iMac, 27", 3.7 GHz 6-core Intel Core i5
Radeon Pro 580X graphics card with 8 GB RAM
Operating system: macOS 11.5.2
Browser: Safari

I'm not having this problem with any other site.

It's equally frustrating on my mobile. The site keeps reloading when I'm going through slideshows, and as you said, swiping rarely works.

iPhone 11 pro
iOS 14.7.1
browser: Chrome

Sorry to hear that you're having problems here. We're planning on a rebuild of this section toward the end of the year, so hopefully that improves things. The only suggestion I can offer in the short term is to try make sure you have a fast connection (slow connections seem to cause the glitches), and disable any ad blockers. FWIW, I just went through Pit Bits 3 on both my iPhone and PC with no problems.

Thanks for the suggestion! I have a fast connection at home (200 Mbps), and an equally fast one at work, and I've experienced these issues on both networks.

I tried it with the Chrome browser on my desktop, and it was better. Both Chrome and Safari on my iPhone are problematic.
