Hello Danny,

The page is working as expected on both iOS and Android. Also a new version with improved UI will be released in the next App Previewer version. It is already available in the new builds.
In case you have a concrete issue, please feel free to open a support ticket and let us know the app id and page id and we will check it for you.

best regards,
Victor,
SC Team.

Can you disable the "Curl" animation so that the page slides quickly (like PDFTron does)?

At the moment no. This page has this animation by design.

best regards,
