Should my Airtable apps slow down as my base gets bigger?

I’ve noticed my (custom) apps are taking much longer to load lately, coinciding with a steady increase in records. The apps load records from filtered views, which don’t necessarily have a ton of records in them at a time. Would the amount of records in the whole base affect the speed of the apps, even if the apps in question aren’t loading all of the records in? Thanks!

Hey there, you’re correct.

Currently if you’re fetching any amount of data from a table (even records from a specific view), all of the data in the table has to be loaded into the browser in order to let an app function.

This contributes to slower performance as your base gets bigger. We’re aware of this issue and, while we don’t have a specific timeline for a fix, we’re are actively working on a solution.
