Description of the problem:
I’m building a novel experiment where participants have to alternate between physically running and solving cognitive tasks. They have to run for a minute at a time, so the experiment has to show a 60-second countdown ending with a beeping noise to let the participants know they have to stop running. This works fine on Chrome on a laptop but the countdown freezes when I try to run it on a phone browser. The console doesn’t show any error messages.
My countdown consists of a list of all the numbers counting down from 60 and time converted to a list index, indexing out one number at a time and presenting it. Is there an obvious reason why this would be computationally taxing? Is there an easier way?
Thank you in advance.
